San Francisco 49ers: Watch the "Who's Got It Better Than Us" Rap Video

The San Francisco 49ers have been chanting a phrase inside their locker room for months now: "Who's got it better than us? Noooo-body!"

This has become so popular that folks have cashed in by making T-shirts and stickers, and now a Bay Area rap artist named "Bailey" has come up with a song and music video.

Head coach Jim Harbaugh brought the phrase with him to San Francisco, but it's not his own invention. In fact, Harbaugh "stole" the idea from his father, Jack Harbaugh. From Jack and the SF Gate:

"We lived in the same neighborhood and we had a group of about 10 or 15 guys that would wake up every morning in the summer when the sun came up and go out and play. And at lunch time you’d run over to someone’s house and a mom would make you some peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches and then it was back on the playground. Then it was dinner time. And after dinner time, back out and you’d play a little kick-the-can because you couldn’t see the ball any more, but you’d put the can under a street light and could play until 8:30, 9 0’clock in the summer time. Mike says, ‘You know what? I can recall that. We’d be walking out to play. Or we’d be going home at night and we’d look at each other say, ‘Who’s got it better than us? Noooo-body.’ And that was a great life."

Jim Harbaugh has brought that same enthusiastic appreciation for what life is about into the Niners locker room, and he has changed the culture for the better of the franchise. The best part about it all is how quickly he's been able to achieve the change.

Now, it seems as if Harbaugh's fire is starting to ignite the fanbase as well as his players, and Northern California is chanting along with the team, saying,

"Who's got it better than us? Noooo-body!"
