Unofficial World Cup 2010 Songs #5 - England - Rik Mayall - Noble England
Another venture that has had some some money thrown at it sees Rik Mayall (he of Young Ones and Bottom fame) come over all Henry V in managing a pub table football team to a famous victory; although the video is not as funny as that summary may have sounded.
There's a pub rock backing to match the theme and Mayall gets to amusingly mangle lines from Shakespeare's take on HV's battles at Agincourt and Harfleur whilst gurning his way through the track. I watched an episode of Bottom on Dave a couple of nights ago - it was far more coherent and entertaining than this.
Band: Rik Mayall
Song: Noble England
Best Line: Cry god and win for England and St George
