Weezer's U.S. Soccer Anthem Represent

Okay, so the U.S. might be out of the World Cup. But don't blame Weezer. They did all they could to help support the Men's National Team. They even wrote an unofficial anthem called Represent.

Maybe there weren't enough vuvuzela's in the tune (there aren't any in fact), to spur the Yanks on to victory. Maybe U.S. soccer fans should just be grateful that the team made it as far as they did. And maybe they should give a little thanks to Weezer - Represent might just have helped fuel them to the point they did reach.

Having a hard time picturing Emo darling Rivers Cuomo getting a stadium of sports fans riled up? Not your idea of athletic machismo? Well neither was Freddy Mercury in his harlequin spandex but We are the Champions echoes through stadiums year round.

Will Represent go down in sports pop culture annals with Queens' We Will Rock You and C & C Music Factory Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)? Listen and decide for yourself.
