Earlier today we floated the hashtag #IndieBandFootyClubs to get your ideas on some real life football clubs around the world who could easily drop the hottest new album of 2015 if they were actually indie bands instead.

The responses were quite satisfying.


Bundesliga strugglers SC Paderborn sound like a Japanese-influence emotional rock group from Michigan, USA.

Energie Cottbus

Obvious synth-pop influences.


Hellas Verona

Luca Toni bangs them in for a Serie A side who could also be a death-metal group.

Kaizer Chiefs

These guys are a real band obviously, although we haven't heard of them in a while. Named because of an admiration of Lucas Radebe.

Orlando Pirates

Another South African side here, would make for a very cool band name.



Go Ahead Eagles


Sensational band name. Dutch football has a few good ones alright.

Kalamazoo Outrage

Yep, that's really a team name. From the prestigious USL in America.

Blyth Spartans

A classic club for popping up on the Sky Sports vidiprinter during Soccer Saturday.

Ebusua Dwarfs

The Ghanaian Premier League offers an endless list of suggestions.

Hearts of Oak

Back to Ghana hear, some slow country ballads could easily come from this Accra club.

Arcadia Shepherds

Another South African side, Hot Press could easily do a feature on them.

Finn Harps

You wouldn't bat an eyelid if you were told these guys were a Boston based rock group.

New England Revolution

The type of band you'd find on Kerrang!
