Sportfreunde Stiller ("Sportfriends Stiller") is a German rock band from Germering, near Munich in Bavaria.
They were founded in 1996 by Peter "Balboa" Brugger (guitar, vocals), Florian "Rakete" Weber (drums, vocals) and RÃ¼diger â€žRÃ¼deâ€œ Linhof (bass). They took their original name, Stiller, from their former soccer trainer, Hans Stiller, at SV Germering. Later they had to change their name because a totally unknown band called Stiller owned the right to this name.
Their "Independent" track from Die gute Seite was featured on FIFA 2003 video game.
In 2006 they wrote '54,'74,'90,2006, a fan hymn for the German worldcup squad which became a number one smash hit in Germany. After Germany lost in the semi-final against Italy on July 4, 2006 the song was reworked as '54,'74,'90,2010 in anticipation of the FIFA Worldcup 2010 in South Africa.
