When the United States opens the 2014 World Cup against Ghana on Monday, American fans will be showering the team with a new anthem.

Since February, the American Outlaws, the largest supporting group of U.S. Soccer, have been practicing a new song that was written specifically for the group by Branden Steineckert, the drummer for Rancid.

Let’s be honest, this isn’t some high-brow music here:

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 proud to be the USA!

It’s a simplistic chant on a loop that while watching on YouTube is a little lame, but will probably sound amazing when sung by more than 500 American supporters in the stadium during U.S. games.

Or, if you choose, your living room.

Go ahead, start practicing.
