Come On England was a music single by the band 4-4-2. A football-themed song, it was released in June 2004 to coincide with the England national team's appearance at the European Championships. It entered the UK Singles Chart at number 2.
The song is a re-working of the Dexys Midnight Runners hit "Come On Eileen". It was played exclusively on talkSPORT radio and several of the station's presenters, including Adrian Durham, Alvin Martin and Micky Quinn, provided backing vocals on the song's Top of the Pops and CD:UK performances.
The band consisted of several unsigned musicians from around the UK brought together especially to record the song by Barry "BURBs" Ratcliffe, who ran the BURBs (British Underground Rock Bands) website. 4-4-2 also went on to record a Christmas single and a World Cup 2006 song.
