(Radio.com) It may have taken 108 years, but for Chicago Cubs fans, and anyone who loves a good underdog story, Wednesday night's (Nov. 2) victory against the Cleveland Indians in the World Series was well worth the wait.

To say thank you to their fans, the newly christened world champions released a short video on Twitter on Thursday (Nov. 3) soundtracked by none other than Cubs fan Eddie Vedder.

In 2007, he wrote a tribute song for the team purportedly when legendary player Ernie Banks asked him to (via WGN). And in 2008, he released "All the Way," an anthemic sing along about one day finally getting the championship that had so long evaded the team.

At the time, the Cubs used "All the Way" to underscore a music video they released when they made the playoffs, and now they're using it once again to punctuate a brief video showing fans from all over the city rooting for their team. In the song, Vedder sings, "Some day we'll go all the way," and the video ends with the moving phrase, "Today is our day." Watch the video here.
