Dutch Rock Music

Hey! Can anyone give a few awesome Rock songs in Dutch?

June 8, 2014



A few songs from Heidevolk with English subs, some of the translations aren't the best quality but should be enough to help out if there's something you don't understand:

Edit: well it's not exactly rock, but you could still rock out to it xD

Edit: I updated the link. (Thanks Lenkvist!)


I can't complain. It's better than Rock :3 Thanks =D


I noticed. Thanks A LOT :D All versions of this song are awsome!! :D Have you seen the movie?


I am not very good at music genres, but I think Normaal is Rock even if it is quite old.

I'm not much good at genres either, but I think that's about as unambiguously "Rock" as you can get :-). The synchronized lyrics are welcome -- I can even understand a few bits.


I don't mind if it's old :) The song seemed catchy. It MIGHT just get stuck in my head :) Thanks :D


I did like the song. Thank you :)


I mostly listen punk and I think the only band singing in Dutch that I like is De Heideroosjes. Here's a few links: Lekker belangrijk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oI-MZ_bnLxY Iedereen is gek https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mwnz5qr11gc Ik wil niks https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zgDvkp1M2Uk Damclub Hooligan https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OGw6GofbuxU Da's toch dope man https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mYYqIc740Vc


A few more:

De Dijk


Van Dik Hout

Mooi Wark (northern accent)

Rowwen Hèze (southeastern accent, not really rock…but well there's not much good rock music in Dutch, most Dutch rock bands tend to sing in English)


Ah. Thank you :) I liked the songs you gave me :)

Spinvis: Kom in de Cockpit. According to Wikipedia, this is "Experimental pop / Neo-Psychedelia" rather than rock, but it's pretty hard not to enjoy it :-). It's also responsible for teaching me the Dutch phrase "in de cockpit is alles wat je wil", which I'm still waiting for a chance to use.

Also, here's an unclassifiable masterpiece from The Ex. You might love it or you might hate it. Personally I love it.


Yes, I did like it. Thank you :)


Not so much a rock song, but a ska song. It is one of the most famous songs by a Dutch band, I reckon. Doe Maar's "Nederwiet". It is about what you think it is. The Dutch is spoken in a lazy pace to match the rock steady beat, so give it a shot.
