Probably unknown to the band and the composers of the song ‘Let’s Go’ was that this chorus was adopted by UK football fans in the mid-60s. The handclapping is followed by the chant of the ‘let’s go’ lyric, which is replaced by the name of the team in question. Football historians have deemed that West Ham supporters were the first to use it, later imitated by other London clubs. It is now a universal chant. If the composers were entitled to a performing royalty they would be billionaires many times over.
