When Boston television station WSBK-TV began broadcasting Bruins games in 1967, the producers of the games wanted a suitable piece of music to air for the introduction of each game. Perhaps inspired by the Boston Ballet's annual Christmas performance of The Nutcracker had become closely identified with Boston, The Ventures' instrumental rock version of the Nutcracker's overture, known as "Nutty", itself thought to be that group's version of the slightly earlier hit Nut Rocker, was selected as the opening piece of music for Bruins telecasts.[30] The song "Nutty" has been identified with the Bruins ever since, and is still sometimes played at the TD Garden during Bruins games. - See more at: www.billdamon.com/the-boston-bruins-theme-song-from-the-1970s-the-nutty/#sthash.tBeP3Mqs.dpuf
