Remember When the 1990 US Soccer Team Made a Rap Video with OJ Simpson?

We all remember when the 1985 Chicago Bears celebrated their victory with the cringe-inducing hip-hop anthem, the "Super Bowl Shuffle". But does anyone recall "Victory", the 1990 U.S. soccer team's World Cup rap? Probably not. And this is most likely rooted in the fact that, unlike their rhyming relatives in Chicago, they weren't very "victorious".

The video, which was recently profiled in The New Yorker, was made shortly after the men's soccer team qualified for the World Cup for the first time in 40 years. The less than laudable song, performed by Def Jef and DJ Eric Vaughn, came with an equally hacky music video featuring a supporting cast of 90s finest like O.J. Simpson, Marcus Allen, and of course, everyone's favorite American Gladiator, Nitro. Essentially, it's the flea market version of "We Are the World".



Luckily, the 2014 team refrained from taking on such a sonic venture, even though Michael Bradley totally looks like Moby and Billy Corgan's love child...
