CHICAGO -- You know the song, you love it. It's the quintessential Chicago Blackhawks song following a goal  -- Chelsea Dagger!

The song has become an anthem for Hawks fans at the United Center, and is known all over Chicago.

The Fratellis, a Scottish rock band from Glasgow, are the geniuses behind the catchy song, and joined WGN Midday News for a performance Friday.

Lead singer, Jon Fratelli  told WGN he didn't even like the song when he wrote it.

"I think after 12 years I get it, it's catchy," Jon said about the song.

During their visit, WGN surprised The Fratellis with a gift from the Blackhawks -- personalized sweaters, making them "honorary Hawks."

The Fratellis have a new album out now -- and they're on tour.
