Despite writing "Song 2" as a parody to the saturation of grunge music on the American charts, British rockers Blur found their American breakthrough with the song. Though their intentions may have been tongue-in-cheek, to deny the immediate exhilaration that comes rushing when the wordless chorus kicks in would be disingenuous to the band as songwriters. A "woo-hoo!" anthem before popular bands like fun. and Mumford and Sons would co-opt it for their folk rock epics, "Song 2" remains an unintentional rock success story by a group of cynical British men, echoed in sports arenas to this day.
