No, we're not talking about the actual game here. That might just appear later.

But one area that has to be included in a list of great FA Cup moments is what used to be a pre-final tradition - the club song.

And there have been none more hilarious/terrible than Liverpool's shocking Anfield Rap entry. Wearing shell suits, wonky baseball caps and cheap huge gold chains, the Liverpool players tried to unleash their inner rappers.

John Barnes just about pulled it off but the rest will cringe with embarrassment any time they see the pictures. Somehow, it got to number three in the charts, with Barnes going on to bigger and better things in the world of rap - with a show-stealing performance in World In Motion, England's legendary song before the Italia 90 World Cup.
