They are in the running to be named the top tune at the UK Festival Awards later this year.

Pulp's Common People - which dates back to 1995 - and Primal Scream's Movin' On Up, from four years earlier, had a fresh lease of life when the bands performed high-profile slots this year.

Jessie J's Price Tag and Sheeran's The A Team are also among the 15 nominees for the festival anthem prize, drawn up by the Virtual Festivals website.

The winner will be named at a ceremony on November 15, where awards for best breakthrough artist, best headliner and favourite festival will also be awarded.

Also up for top anthem are: Aloe Blacc - I Need A Dollar; Bombay Bicycle Club - Shuffle; Chase And Status - Blind Faith; Foo Fighters - Rope; Foster The People - Pumped Up Kicks; Friendly Fires - Hawaiian Air; Muse - Knights Of Cydonia; My Chemical Romance - Na Na Na; Noah And The Whale - L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.; PJ Harvey - Let England Shake; and Viva Brother - Darling Buds Of May.
