Hockey arenas have been blasting out such Green Day hits as "Holiday
" and "Know Your Enemy
" for a long time, so it was a no-brainer for the NHL to go in partnership with the band. On September 30, 2019, Green Day confirmed a two-year deal with the NHL. Part of the link-up saw the band premiere "Fire, Ready, Aim" during a pump-up montage featuring NHL stars prior to the October 9, 2019 game between the Philadelphia Flyers and New Jersey Devils. The clip also included footage of Green Day performing the clap-along track in the rink.
The song continued to be the opening theme for NBCSN's Wednesday Night Hockey
broadcasts throughout the 2019-2020 season.
