Heideroosjes (pronounced: hi-duh-rose-yes, HR in short), were a Dutch punk rock band from Horst aan de Maas. The band were known for their energetic shows and songs with lyrics mostly in Dutch and English, and a few songs in German and Limburgs (a dialect spoken in the Dutch province of Limburg). The band, formed in 1989, consisted of Marco Roelofs (vocals/guitar), Frank Kleuskens (guitar), Fred Houben (Bass) and Igor Hobus (percussion). This lineup never changed.
Heideroosjes played nearly 1500 shows in Europe, United States, Japan and South Africa.
The band’s name is a Dutch colloquial name for a little wild plant (Catsfoot Antennaria dioica, usually called Rozenkransje in Dutch) which grows in open fields. By dictionary it means "heath roses" and was chosen for its ironic contrast with the many punk band names that reflect dark or violent themes.
