Ra - We Won't Back Down

October brings a new song from mighty alternative rockers Ra. It's titled We Won't Back Down and is the new opening theme for NHL team Washington Capitals.

Sahaj Ticotin, singer, songwriter and leader of the band said: "Soooo I can finally announce that this year the Washington Capitals will have their own theme song written by me and released as a Ra song. Its title is We Won't Back Down and is built to rock arenas and get the crowd pumped. Thanx to the NHL, The Washington Capitals and especially D.J. Stange who's idea it was from the get go and who facilitated all the logistics!"
