NORWEGIAN punk rockers have written a song declaring their undying love for Blackburn Rovers.

The band, Seven, have penned a tribute called Blackburn (Rovers In His Heart), telling the true story of a boy who loves the club more than anything else – including his girlfriend.

And the guitar-based track namechecks Rovers legend Colin Hendry rather than Norwegian stars such as current player Morten Gamst Pedersen and old favourite Henning Berg, who helped lift the Premiership trophy for the club in 1995.

Asle Roedfjell, 31, promoter of the band, said the song was proving popular on football forums in the UK and Norway.

The Rovers fan said: “It’s the true story of a former band member who lost his heart to Blackburn Rovers, and then he lost his girlfriend.

"It has a cross-over appeal because a lot of people can relate to it.

“There are a lot of people in Norway who follow Blackburn Rovers like all the other big Premier League clubs.

"Norwegian people are known for their craziness for UK football!

“Blackburn also have an association with Norwegian stars like Morten Gamst Pedersen and Henning Berg.

“They are some of the best players this country has produced and having those players in a Blackburn Rovers team increases the popularity of the club here.

“Every Saturday night we watch the hightlights on the TV.

“It’s true, though, that Colin Hendry is the only player in the song, and he’s actually Scottish!

“But a lot of people here think of Colin when they think of Blackburn Rovers. He was a legendary player.”

Asle has been in touch with the club to ask if the band can perform at the ground on a matchday, and he is planning a tour in the local area next year.

The song is sung in English and is being supported by the Blackburn Rovers Supporters’ Association Norway website, where a high-quality mp3 download is available at

Seven have released five albums, featured on MTV and have had chart hits in Norway.
