The Old Firm Casuals first gave Quakes fans their anthem “Never Say Die” in January of 2014 ahead of the club’s complete rebrand that saw the introduction of the club’s new crest, kit & one incredible party to kick things off. Along with the big reveal came a performance from the band themselves.
Lead singer Lars Frederiksen, known worldwide for his work with iconic punk band Rancid, penned the song out of love for his local team. The Cambell native cites his first experience with the club as when the Earthquakes came to his school in the 1970s and he’s considered himself a fan ever since.
Learn more about Lars’ affiliation with the club in this recent interview.
From coast to coast
Yea you know our name
(We're gonna be Saturday's heroes)
We are the ones that you love
The ones you love to hate
No, this ain't New York this ain't LA
We are black and blue we are San Jose
We'll Never Say Die
You can bring your army
You can bring what you've got
(We're gonna be Saturday's Heroes)
Cause we’re takin’ 'em all
Watch 'em all fall apart
You say you ‘Believe’
But you ain't got no heart
When the ground comes alive
The Earthquake is gonna start
We'll Never Say Die...
