7. Chumbawamba- Tubthumping - A song for all those lager louts out there. “I get knocked down, but i get up again”. It was even used in the Official EA World Cup 1998 game.

6. Belle and Spurling – Sven, Sven, Sven -Terrible and brilliant at the same time. These jokers, also responsible for the awful ‘golden balls song’, wrote this to gloat further about that 5-1 victory that you may have probably heard of.

5. Bellini – Samba De Janeiro - This song is classic samba. Capturing the Brazilian flair so regularly associated with football.  It is rare not to hear this blasted on the PA systems at most grounds around the world.
