If there was an award for ‘Best National Football Team Song’ then the award would be winging its way to Sweden.
Soilwork vocalist Björn “Speed” Strid was asked to write a song by Sweden Rock Magazine for the Swedish National Football Team ahead of their participation in the UEFA European Championships in June.
Strid made a few calls and rounded up a few friends to help him. The result is ‘Nu jävlar!’ (Here We Go, Goddamnit)
Sure puts England’s efforts to shame, doesn’t it?
The lineup for the song is as follows:
Björn Strid (Soilwork, The Night Flight Orchestra)
Jörgen ”Schweden-Bomber” Pettersson
Ian Haugland (Europe)
Liv Jagrell (Liv Sin)
Jörgen Sandström (Domedagen, ex-Entombed)
Mike Wead (King Diamond)
Chris Laney (Pretty Maids, At The Movies)
Lars Johansson (Candlemass)
Simon Johansson (Wolf)
Niklas Stålvind (Wolf)
Martin Carlsson (Sweden Rock Magazine)
