As Long As We’re Breathing Mix

As LongA s We're BreathingAnd now for something completely different. It’s Friday, and since the Major League Soccer season starts this weekend, I decided to do a mix for the New York Red Bull supporter groups and any other supporters who want to blast these tunes before or after the matches. It is a mix of tunes that the supporter clubs have championed during the match for their own chants, classic football tunes from the UK, as well as actual crowds singing from Red Bull Arena and the Red Bulls’ (Metro Stars) former home, the old Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. For many who follow football all year round and are from the New York area, we’re gearing up for the closest professional football team to NYC (even if it’s Harrison, NJ) to start their 2016 campaign. The team is the oldest MLS team from New York (1996), and the Empire Supporters Club is the oldest supporter’s group in the league. Along with The Viking Army and Garden State Ultras, they make up The South Ward. These three groups sing their hearts out for 90 minutes plus every game (home and away), and while each group is unique itself, they all form like Voltron to support New York Red Bull whether we win or lose. We continue to hate DC United, and even though there is some new blue team Uptown, it’s clear that New York is (and always will be) RED. We all stand together as one to bring home the MLS CUP this year. This is a mix of great punk, rock, hip hop, reggae, and other sides. It’s NSFW due to some graphic language, so it might not work for the younger supporter. To me, all of these tunes represent a day at Red Bull Arena with good mates, having a beer, screaming your head off and going mental for 90 minutes or more, then hopping on the PATH back home to get back to life. It’s an atmosphere that’s very unique. As long as we’re breathing, we’ll cheer for the Metro.

Check out the mix below, and if you dig pass on. I did it all live in one take, because like a soccer match, you don’t get a second chance to save a shot.

  1. Dude this absolutely amazing! If I wasn’t pumped for tomorrow’s Home Opener I am now. Your passion for the squad is clearly evident. Also nice to see a fellow Jersey City supporter.
