Rompin' and Stompin'

Red Hot Chili Peppers

"Around The World"
Daft Punk
1997

These days, many cruise lines offer luxury round-the-world trips for those with a lot of cash and a few months to spare. Plane-and-hotel tour organizers can get you around the globe in less than a month, with a lot of gift shops along the way. The record for a round-the-world trip is a little around two days of flying—unless you count low earth orbit, where the International Space Station does it every hour and a half.

The game has changed so much even over the last few decades that there can never be definitive answers to these questions, making them perfect fodder for bar arguments and internet message boards.

When it comes to top-flight wingers from different eras, though, there's one thing we can know for sure: Fulham's Clint Dempsey is a better rapper than Liverpool's John Barnes. Read more about A Little Bit Hip-Hop

1990

In 1990, Keith Allen, New Order, and John Barnes created a template for the soccer pop song. "World In Motion" is still considered a timeless classic in England, despite the handicap of actually being kind of a terrible song. Read more about Rapping for Engerland
