You bet, Gyllene Tider is behind the Swedish anthem for the world soccer championship! The song is called Bäst när det gäller and includes Linnea Henriksson on vocals. Per says the song is about a couple who takes it up a notch when things get hot, but it’s also filled with soccer references most will recognize.

The first radio show ever?

November 8, 1978, Onsdagsmorgon med Gyllene Tider – rockgrupp från Halmstad. Radio Halland’s official log from that very day. We’re trying to get hold of the actual show and if possible add a link to it here. Thank you, Ingvar Andersson, for informing us about this.
