On Saturday, April 25, Minnesota United FC play their home opener versus San Antonio Scorpions; kickoff is at 7 p.m. at the National Sports Center in Blaine, Minn. Earlier this morning, the team's head coach, Manny Lagos, joined us in the studio and we had a great chat about tomorrow's game.

What's more, The Current and Minnesota United are teaming up this year, and The Current will have its very own section at the National Sports Center where you can watch the game and cheer along with United's superfans, the Dark Clouds.

And with all the soccer talk this morning, it reminded us that there are a lot of songs that have the word "kick" in them. Sometimes it's right in the title, other times it's a vital part of the refrain, and sometimes it's just a passing phrase or quick mention.

So for today's 9:30 Coffee Break, what songs do you want to hear that mention "kick", "kicks" or "kicking"? Send us your requests.

MC5 - "Kick Out the Jams"
A Tribe Called Quest - "Can I Kick it"
The Replacements - "Kick Your Door Down"
