Many of you doubtlessly remember the “Believe” anthem started by Real Salt Lake fan and current Rancid drummer Branden Steineckert. It was and is a catchy little tribute to Utah’s Major League Soccer clubs and fans.

Well, Steineckert is back with a jam for your World Cup pleasure called “We Stand United,” brought to our attention by Andy Edwards from

Its lyrics:

“Here we stand united / We’ll never be divided / Fight and sing for victory

For every generation / Who represent our nation / And battle for the USA.

Here we are, we are / United States and we all, we all / Can celebrate

That we are, we are / United States / And we’re proud to be the USA”

Not too shabby.
