It went to number one on the Danish Singles Chart, number two in both Ireland and the United Kingdom, and number six in Norway. Ahead of the 2006 FIFA World Cup, the song had been re-recorded for fans in the England, with lyrics celebrating the England football squad with the title "From London to Berlin". However, the song was withdrawn from radio airplay and TV following England's anticipated knockout from the World Cup.

The track was also performed during the X-Factor auditions process in 2006, by DJ Chris Felton from the Newcastle area who made up his own dance and performed the track with Infernal on air at Metro Radio. The single was the United Kingdom's sixth biggest selling single of the 2006.[1] Sing Chew, a female singer from Singapore, recorded a cover of this song.
