MLS First Kick 2013 Countdown: 27 Days - Musical Tributes to D.C. United

UPDATE: Thanks to commenters Irrlicht and Brendanukkah, we're reminded that harDCore legends Bad Brains did their own tribute as part of a league-wide campaign back in 2008 to connect local music acts to MLS teams. Here it is:
