Frank Zander - Nur nach Hause - Hertha BSC - Hymne - Song hahohe

"Nur nach Hause", the club anthem of Hertha BSC

The club anthem of Hertha BSC is called "Nur nach Hause" by the german musician Frank Zander. The melody is taken from "I Am Sailing" by Rod Stewart. It was first performed by Zander on March the 31th 1993, when Frank Zander was employed for the half-time show of the DFB-Pokal half final of the Hertha BSC amateur team, also known as the "Hertha Bubis", against the Chemnitzer FC. The Olympiastadion was almost sold out and Zander got heavy stage fright, to sing at that impressive scenery in front of nearly 60.000 Fans.

One day before his performance, Zander got the idea to use his at this time actual single "Nur Nach Hause…", which was meant as a sort of a "kick out song" for pubs, and to rewrite a version of this song for Hertha BSC. Over night, he wrote the version in collaboration with Hanno Bruhn. The resonance from the fans side was unexpected positive, and after this performance, "Nur nach Hause" became the club anthem of Hertha BSC.
