It’s No ‘El Scorcho’ Or ‘Say It Ain’t So’, But Weezer’s U.S. Soccer Song Ain’t Half Bad
Long after I become an even more cynical old man than I already am at this stage of my life, I will always have a soft spot in my heart (to go along with the soft spot on my cranium – my mom says that makes me “special”) for Weezer.
Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo’s love for The Beautiful Game has been well documented (see an example here), but for him to actually take the time to write a song and dedicate it to the U.S. World Cup squad is pretty badass. Even better, you can download “Represent” for free on iTunes. Cool.
It’s all up to the U.S. squad now – here’s to them taking out those English bastards tomorrow. Time to kick some limey ass!
USA! USA! USA! USA!
