If you have been following the blog at all, you know that I have a thing for old school punk, and this is about old school crusty punk as you can get. These guys are big supporters of the english football club, West Ham United, just like quite a few of the other Oi punk bands, like Cocksparrer, Cockney Rejects and The Business (who Micky Fitz is the lead singer of). A friend of mine turned me onto them, and he is a big West Ham supporter, and this song pretty much sums up what it’s like to be a West Ham supporter.
“We ain’t on our way to Wembley,
we ain’t gonna win no cups,
our biggest problem is trying to stay up!”
Being a Newcastle supporter is much like the same thing. There’s no finals, no cups, and well, we barely stayed up last year, so while this is a West Ham song, I really really relate to this song. But it’s a really good song, so check it out!
