Penguins won’t use Mac Miller track for goal song

Mac Miller watches his team bowl during a bowling day he hosted at Arsenal Lanes in Lawrenceville as part of his ÔHomecoming Weekend,Õ a celebration for the launch of his new album GO:OD AM.

The Penguins will not change their goal song to Mac Miller’s “Party on Fifth Ave.” to honor the dead rapper as requested in an online petition.

But the team will incorporate the tune into its music mix on game night, a team spokesman said in a statement.

More than 30,000 people had signed a petition seeking the new goal song as of Thursday morning, nearly a week after the apparent overdose death of Miller, 26, in his California home.

Petitioner “B John” wrote, “I think it would be a fitting tribute to the rapper to change the goal song to the upbeat song he created. Party on Fifth Ave is a song by Mac Miller and PPG Paints Arena is located on 5th Avenue in Pittsburgh.”

The team’s goal song is “Party Hard” by Andrew W.K.
