England's star striker and late in life hair-growing expert Wayne Rooney took the pitch for the first time in the Euro 2012 tournament today (and scored a goal to boot), but before he did he tweeted out his pre-match playlist. It wasn't exactly a classic pump-up mix.
1. "Real Gone Kid" — Deacon Blue
2. "Riot Van" — Arctic Monkeys
3. "Maybe Tomorrow" — Stereophonics
4. "It's My Life" — Bon Jovi
5. "Champagne Supernova" — Some Cover Band That Isn't Oasis
I'm sorry to use Spotify's embed here (thus requiring you all to have Spotify to listen to it), but this is too absurd not to hear it as Wayne intended it. He doesn't have Oasis's version of Champagne Supernova on this playlist, he has some random cover band's version. Now I'm not sure if in England Oasis is not on Spotify, but here in America they are, which makes this selection hilarious.
Also WHAT IS THIS SONG DOING HERE? When was the last time you listened to an Oasis song and wanted to punch something? Never. (Unless you're one of the Gallagher brothers. Then literally every time.)
