The 2018 FIFA World Cup is in full swing and though there's always an official World Cup anthem, we think K-pop does it better. 

If you want infectious songs with choruses made for chanting, swelling to a big anthemic moment, then you can't go past these 9 songs. 

1. EXO - "Power"

If it was good enough for the Winter Olympics closing ceremony, it's good enough for the football field.

2. B.A.P - "Hands Up"

Imagine thousands of people in a stadium all shouting that chorus refrain.

3. BTS - "Not Today"

Anthemic doesn't even begin to describe the vibe of this song.

4. BIGBANG - "Bang Bang Bang"

Ok this one is just fun for singing along, you know it'd get you ready for some sporting action.

5. 2NE1 - "I Am The Best"

CL performed this song at the Winter Olympics closing ceremony too, and it's the perfect anthem for athletes getting ready to win.

6. Wanna One - "Energetic"

An upbeat song that is all about bringing the energy.

7. MONSTA X - "Fighter"

The ultimate song to rev you up before a big game.

8. BLACKPINK - "Boombayah"

There's something about the bass in this song that would make you stamp your feet and singalong.

9. Leo (VIXX) & Sejeong (gugudan) - "We, The Reds"

This is the official cheer song for the Korean national soccer team in this year's World Cup, so it's an obvious inclusion. Get inspired by Leo and Sejeong!
