Norwich City fans will be able to choose which song the team walks out to this season via a poll on the club’s Twitter account.

The club asked supporters to submit their ideas this week, and those suggestions have now been narrowed down to four in a Twitter poll launched on Thursday and closing on Friday evening.

The winning song will then be played for the first time as the team emerge from the tunnel for Saturday’s home match against Preston North End and subsequently all home games this season.

The four songs supporters can choose from are Thunderstruck by AC/DC, Song 2 by Blur, Club Foot by Kasabian and Right Here, Right Now by Fat Boy Slim.

The team has entered the pitch to Club Foot and Song 2 in previous seasons, while other tracks used have included Queen’s One Vision, The Ramones’ Blitzkrieg Bop and The Proclaimers’ (I’m Gonna Be) 500 Miles.
