Football is coming home. If you didn’t already know that then you must’ve been living under a rock for at least the past four weeks and had no idea that the World Cup is going on and almost come to an end.
Well, anonymous metalcore troupe ChugaBoom have unleashed their own rendition of the England football team’s anthem, ‘Three Lions’, which was originally performed and released back in 1996 by The Lightning Seeds.
However, the band’s take rings more true to the slightly altered 1998 version of the song, which also saw a slight name change to ‘3 Lions’.
Vocalist Levi Taurus spoke about the cover, events that have unfolded in recent weeks in England, and to remind us all that football is indeed coming home.
“The nation is in meltdown; it has been the hottest summer in a generation, Boris Johnson has finally fucked off, and the country has sent out a search party out to find football because it was due home for tea a couple of weeks ago and it’s still not back.
England are only a single 12 yard death kick from hell away from sending the Croatian contingent back on the 6:25 Ryanair flight to Split.
Football is coming home. Perhaps not today, but it will, and when it does, we like it a little more than we did when it left. Show the world… let them know it’s coming home!”
