This German rock band is surely one of the most successful bands of the world. They have existed for nearly thirty years now, and they're really famous all over the world. Their songs include No. 1 hits like "Wind of Change", "Still Loving You", "Send Me An Angel", "Rock You Like A Hurricane", and "Holiday". They are called The...
I've been told that this band has enjoyed quite a success in the U.S. Their lyrics are German, their music is some kind of Industrial Metal, and their show is simply amazing - a lot of pyrotechnics. They released their first hit single, "Engel", in 1997. Other songs are "Heirate Mich", "Du Hast", "Du Riechst So Gut", "Sonne", and "Mutter". Do you know which band I'm talking about?
Such A Surge
This is a German punk rock band who's existed since the beginning of the eighties. They've somehow made their way and still have lots of fans, although they are likely to cause some controversy now and then, especially when talking about soccer. Their songs have included "Return of Alex", "All die ganzen Jahre", "Alles aus Liebe", "Unsterblich", "Paradies", "Was zählt", and the hilarious "Zehn kleine Jägermeister". Have you heard of them?
Die Toten Hosen
This band has repeatedly labeled themselves "The best band of the world". They also came up during the eighties and have earned themselves quite a reputation. They're known for breaking taboos (they had a song about sodomy, for instance) and for causing quite a fuss everywhere they go. Their music is also a kind of punk rock, and their songs include "Schrei nach Liebe", "Drei-Tage-Bart", "Männer sind Schweine", "Westerland" and "Gehen wie ein Ägypter" ("Walk Like An Egyptian"). Who are they?
Die Toten Hosen
I've heard several people describe this singer as the "German Phil Collins". I don't know if it's true, I've never been really interested in neither of them. But he's been around for years, and no doubt he's one of Germany's most famous singers. He had smash hits like "Männer", "Bochum", "Vollmond" and "Was soll das?", and he celebrated a great comeback last year (2001/2002) with his No. 1 hit album "Mensch". Do you know his name?
This singer is also one of the "rock stars of old" in the German music scene. His first single "Du" (1971) was an immense success, and he's been famous ever since. The 1984 album "Caramboulage", featuring songs such as "Karneval der Nacht", "Mensch aus Stahl" and "Er hat sich gewehrt", might have been his greatest success. He also created the radio drama "Tabaluga", a story for children about a little dragon who has to grow up and learns to come to terms with life, featuring the unforgettable songs "Ich wollte nie erwachsen sein", "Eis im September", and "Der Baum des Lebens" (among others). Do you know who he is?
This is one of my favorite bands. They consist of a Irish lead singer and four other German band members. Their first hit single, "Supergirl" (1999), stayed on top of the hit list for several weeks. Other songs include "Josephine", "Waiting There For You", "Life Is A Dream", and the beautiful "Weep". Ever heard of them?
Natural Born Hippies
This German rock band (well, Crossover, to be exact) came up in 1998 with their smash hit "Open Your Eyes", followed by the singles "Rain" and "Lords of the Boards". More recent songs include "Don't You Turn Your Back On Me", "Kumbayah" (with comedian Michael Mittermeier), and "Living In A Lie". Do you know what they are called?
She was one of Germany's most famous singers during the eighties. Her smash hit "99 Luftballons" went around the world (and I always hated it!). There's an English version of the song called "99 Red Balloons". Other songs include "Ich bau dir ein Schloss aus Sand" and "Leuchtturm". Give me her name.
(One Word, 4 letters)
Last but not least: One of the most successful German Hip Hop bands. The only Hip Hop band I like, to be honest. They're really quite funny. Their greates hits are probably "Sie ist weg" and "Populär", other songs include "Die da" and "MfG". There are four band members - if you never heard of them, you might guess the band name if you know the German word for "four" :)
