Rock Bands Unite For World Cup Charity Single


Charity singles are usually awful. And so are World Cup novelty songs. However, there’s one football anthem that’s raising funds for a fantastic cause and is easy on the ears!

The rare tune in question is ‘Football United The World‘ by a band called Rock For Children (Rock FC). Never heard of them? Don’t worry, you won’t have done as this is  just their debut single but their list of members reads like a who’s-who of modern rock musicians.

The team features the likes of Enter Shikari, Kids In Glass Houses, Blitz Kids, Don Broco, Nina Nesbitt and Marmozets, and is being captained by top producer Dan Weller and LostAlone‘s Steven Battelle.

The official video can be watched below, and the song itself is available to pre-order on iTunes now. All of those involved in the project have given up their time for free so that all profits made go directly to Street Child World Cup. To learn more about the charity, visit their website here.
