Kasabian and Kaiser Chiefs Compete For Official England Song

Today's Observer Newspaper indicates that indie, um, giants Kasabian and Kaiser Chiefs are both up for the job of releasing the official England World Cup song for Germany 2006.

Personally, I think it might be advisable to wait until England have actually qualified for the World Cup before we think about such worthless trivia, but hell, what do I know.

Secondly, it makes me want to weep that two such derivative, third-rate bands should even be considered for such a task. Neither has much grasp of melody and a suitably anthemic song seems way beyond the grasp of Stone Roses clones Kasabian. At least Kaiser Chiefs are named after a football team.

My own view is that this kind of thing is best left to professional songwriters and is best performed by here-today-gone-tomorrow pop puppets like Girls Aloud - footballers wives in training, one and all.
