We have a Croatian patriotic song called “Rise, Ban Jelacic” which was adopted and inspired from a poem written by a fellow Slavic Serb from Croatia describing the forced Hungarianization at the time.  

Here is a verse:

Mađarske zastave digo Hedervary
Silom hoće Hrvatsku da nam pomađari.

Ustani bane, Hrvatska te zove, zove,
Ustani bane Jelačiću!

Which means: 

Hedervary (Hungarian governor of Croatia at the time) raised the Hungarian flags
Trying to forcefully Magyarize our Croatia.

Rise, oh ban, Croatia calls you, calls you,
Rise, ban Jelačić!
