The band formerly known as Weezer have released “Represent,” a Jock Jams-lite jam that honors the U.S. soccer team at the World Cup. It’s clear that this song totally worked, since our team had an utterly thrilling tie. Was anyone else excited about the closure that that game gave us? I mean, the LOST finale wrapped up better than that, and I’d rather get ocular cancer than watch that again.
At any rate, yeah, this song is for U.S. soccer, and it might not be the song that the U.S. soccer team needs, but it’s the song the U.S. team HAS. I can’t take the pain. [Stereogum]
