Danish rock group founded in 1967 by [a=Anders Koppel] and [a=Thomas Koppel] with [a=Annisette] Hansen, [a=Jens Rugsted], [a=Flemming Ostermann], [a=Alex Riel] and [a=Ilse Maria Koppel] as a backing-project for a TV-show. Their debut as an established rock-group was in May 1968 on Plænen in Tivoli, Copenhagen.

The Savage Rose became rapidly popular in Denmark, but also to some extent abroad. Their lyrics were inspired by [a=Bob Dylan], and the music was a mixture of classical music and US westcoast psychedelic rock, characterized by vocalist Annisette. In fall 1971 The Savage Rose became reduced to a trio on account of musical disagreements – The Koppel Brothers and Annisette wanted to change the musical style towards soul and gospel. The Savage Rose reorganized as a group in 1973, and recorded [r=1015713], - but split up in January 1975.

The group reformed as Savage Rose in 1977 now with Danish lyrics, a strong political engagement and in opposition to the established commercial music industry. Through the 80s the group played in Palestinian refugee- and partisan-camps, in Albania and at many manifestations on the political left wing. In this underground period Savage Rose released eight albums (almost all on independent labels) – while living among the underprivileged of Copenhagen. Core members in this period were [a=Thomas Koppel], [a=Annisette] and [a=John Ravn].

In 1995 Savage Rose had their second commercial break-through with the album [r=1219100] – the first album in English for many years. The successor [r=1243368] and subsequent releases were again released as The Savage Rose, while the band for a period lived in US. Even after the sudden death of Thomas Koppel in February 2006, The Savage Rose continued releasing and doing live performances.
