Kaiser Chiefs want their track 'Coming Home' to be England's unofficial world cup anthem.
The Football Association have selected Gary Barlow's 'Greatest Day' - featuring former Spice Girl Mel C, Pixie Lott, Katy B and Gary Lineker - as the official 2014 song ahead of the competition in Brazil in June, but Kaiser Chiefs are hoping fans will be playing their track.
Bassist Simon Rix told The Sun newspaper: ''Hopefully, 'Coming Home' will be played when England are carrying the World Cup on the plane back home.''
Frontman Ricky Wilson joked: ''We could always do a special edition - 'Coming Home Early!'''
The 36-year-old singer revealed the band - also made up of Simon, Vijay Mistry, Nick 'Peanut' Baines and Andrew White - were asked to write a World Cup song in 2006 but turned the opportunity down, which Ricky admits was a mistake.
He said: ''We were asked to do a World Cup song but we said no. We said we didn't have the time. But you can make some time for something like that.
''When the World Cup was on, we were all sitting in the pub going, 'We could have been doing this'.''
Instead, fellow Yorkshire rockers Embrace ended up recording the official song 'World At Your Feet'.
Meanwhile, the Kaisers have released their new track from their latest album 'Education, Education, Education & War', which was recorded at a studio they used to work in when they were just 17.
Ricky said: ''It was kinda inspiring, it was just us boys in a room, making a racket.''
