Cardiff City Superstars - Wembley Mix

Football songs are always terrible except when Helen Love do them. Here they have updated their classic Dickies-influenced Cardiff City Superstars adding new lyrics to celebrate the Bluebirds’ triumphant march to Wembley. Listen out for Gruff Rhys on vocals doing a passable north Walian impersonation of Joey Ramone. Also check out some of the anti-British establishment lyrics, notably:

Alan Green and the BBC
We’re the team you didn’t want to see


We’re not going to save the queen

All sung to the theme tune of late '60s kids TV programme The Banana Splits. Marvellous!
