As the U.S. Men’s Team celebrates their victory over Algeria and advances to the next round of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, Los Angeles power-pop outfit Weezer has released a new video for “Represent,” their fight anthem to help the hometeam keep winning. Watch the video below.
In the clip, frontman Rivers Cuomo and Co. — who are known to play a little soccer backstage — sport U.S.-branded sweat suits and rock out as a highlight reel shows players like Landon Donovan, Clint Dempsey, and Tim Howard doing a little of their own rocking out on the field. “One hundred years from now / Gonna look back on this day / Where you goin to be? / And what are they goin’ to say? / I see my name in lights / The people call my name / It’s all up to you,” Cuomo sings in a slow bridge, before the band rips into catchy power-chord riffs. “It matters how you play the game / It matters that you can take the pain!!!”
