It's not every day you come upon something like this—a version of Manic Street Preachers' 'Motorcycle Emptiness' overdubbed with the names of famous German footballers.

As per Wales Online, the idea was that of Simon Price, who wrote the Manics biography.

Here's David Owens of Wales Online:

The title is a nod to Germany's footballing tradition and also to the Manics' new album Futurology, which was recorded at the world famous Hansa Studios in Berlin with Welsh producer Alex Silva.

Here's the original, in case you're too young to have heard it. 

Brilliant stuff.
