Ten Fútbol Songs to Get You Pumped for the 2014 FIFA World Cup

Categories: Lists

4. Sultans of Ping FC - "Give Him a Ball (and a Yard of Grass)"
Irish punkers, the Sultans of Ping FC have been at it in one way or another since the '80s and they've been fueled by their immense love for the sport since the get-go. Another good one is "Kick Me with Your Leather Boots," but I don't think anything conveys the mythos of the game quite the way this song does. Plus, if God had intended the sport to be more aerial in nature, He would've put grass on the clouds.

3. Morrissey - "Munich Air Disaster 1958"
Morrissey's always been a weirdo, and there are a number of ways of interpreting this ode to Busby's Babes who perished in an airplane accident in 1958 after competing against Red Star Belgrade for a European Cup match. Of the 38 passengers and 6 staff aboard the Airspeed AS-57 Ambassador plane comprising the team, management, support staff and journalists, 23 died on site or resulting from injuries sustained during the accident. Famously, a 20 year old Bobby Charlton survived and went on to become the greatest footballer to ever wear the Three Lions.
