Best part of the buildup to the World Cup are the songs. Nothing ever is going to be released that tops the two versions of Three Lions, nor Vindaloo. France 98 really spawned this as a genre. And as the Official Song is utter shite, per usual - which I will post first to get that abomination out of the way - it's the fans' efforts which can be quite good.
Any additions will be made in subsequent posts.
So with that, let's kick off -
The Official England 2014 World Cup Song: (It truly is woeful)

You aren't talking about the official world anthem, which has been shit since after France 1998 right?
Hey there! Thanks for noticing what we are telling the world we appreciate it, because we are the guys who done the World Cup song that you had as first on your favourite list! are pleased you agree and these are what the papers are saying too: The Daily Mirror bit.ly/1kD0CWX The Daily Star shr.gs/oASde5e And now we need to get it viral to let everyone else see it to agree to make it the new craze & anthem of the summer, so can you put it about too if you agree. Here is the actual song on I-tunes where the money from the sales goes to TheBobbyMooreFund/CancerResearchUK itunes.apple.com/gb/album/well-do-it-again/id870893136?i=870893140&uo=4 Everyone do "The Buster Dance" LOL.
I don't know if this ones been mentioned but is there one called 'Go England' to the tune of 'Going Underground' by The Jam?
Im sure I remember that from World Cup 2002... I'm gonna look like such a dickhead if it doesn't exist...
There is. I'll have a whip round on YouTube when I get home.....I may actually have it on my external which I got in 2008 but has a few things dating even back to circa 2004ish so it may be on there, too. But it does exist.
99% of England football songs are so shit - it should be a criminal offence for anyone to write one these days.
Admittedly, Three Lions is a catchy tune and does not pander to the Nuts reading, chest beating neanderthals who vote BNP in all the other songs.
But there's one exception of course, and I CANNOT believe you have listed so many shit songs without mentioning the one true quality one which is New Order - World In Motion. I'm Scottish and I hate myself for loving the song because it's brilliant - though John Barnes and Paul Gascoigne were awesome characters so I'm willing to forgive that England side. They actually had very likeable players back then.
Kasabian though would fit well with this England team though by writing an anthem - utter shite and not as good as they think they are.

moonlightdriver: Wow, Just noticed the riff at the very end of the Familiar To Millions version of Gas Panic sounds like the intro of Magic Pie (somewhere around 7 mins). Am I hallucinating or... ?

popeyebonaparte: Kind of a long shot I know but I'm trying to find a cassette of Knebworth 1996 but they weren't sold outside the box sets. Is there any chance that someone on here bought the box set but has no use for the cassette and would want to sell me theirs? Thanks!
