    With regards to your ORIGINAL new song Twin Anthem. It is not the ORIGINAL version of this song this link will take you to the ORIGINAL!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXVt_jy8QjI You may have had more likes than dislikes if CREDIT for this song was not pinched from LEEDS UNITED FOOTBALL CLUB. The LUFC Fans are pationate about their songs especially this one and to see someone else take credit for it is wrong!! They are a great bunch of fans who have gone and are still going through a bad time, making there way steadily back to the Premier League. Robbie Rogers (An American) now plays for us, so has Eddie Lewis & Mike Grella Americans as well) in the past, so we are not anti American. One of our famous new chants is that “Were Not Famous Anymore” a tongue in cheek dig at how popular we are because other teams can’t seem to forget us and who we are. So change your title to read who the real writers were not Andy Sturdevant who just changed the name from LEEDS to TWINS. Leeds! Leeds! Leeds! (commonly known as Marching On Together) is the name of the anthem of Leeds United A.F.C. Unlike many football songs that are just new words set to existing music, Leeds! Leeds! Leeds! is an original composition by Les Reed and Barry Mason. The song first appeared in 1972 as the B-side of the record released by Leeds United to coincide with the team reaching the 1972 FA Cup Final It has reached No.10 twice in the UK Pop Charts!!

    Hello. I am also a passionate Leeds United supporter and I travel all-around the country with my team.
    Many Leeds United supporters dislike a Rugby club with the name of “Leeds Rhinos” singing our beloved song. But having a completely different team singing our well-known song makes some Leeds supporters shocked and disappointed.
    But I personally dislike it because when I here it only thing I hear is utter rubbish (due to a different version).
    Thanks for reading.
