Top ten German rock bands

Kraftwerk

The German robot-pop legends were the forerunner to today's techno and industrial music, setting the agenda with albums such as Autobahn and " The Man-Machine.

Nena

"99 red balloons" made Nena an icon of German new wave music in the 1980s. She has just had a successful comeback, with her new singles shooting to no. 1 in the German charts all over again.

Herbert Groenemeyer

Groenemeyer became famous in the 1980s through songs such as "Maenner" (Men) and "Bochum". He also starred in "Das Boot" (The Boat).

Udo Lindenberg

A hat, dark sunglasses and a throaty voice were the trademarks. Lindenberg was also the first West German rock star to play a concert in communist East Germany.

Nina Hagen

Germany's enfant terrible during the 1970s and 1980s; also known as " the mother of punk". Distinctive make-up and dark lyrics.

Die Phantastischen Vier

The four boys from Stuttgart were the first to rap in German and to get away with it. In the early 1990s they were Germany's answer to Run DMC and the Beastie Boys.

Die Aerzte

This German punk band reached its peak in the late 1980s shortly after it was banned by the German government. Still touring today.

Die Toten Hosen

"The Dead Trousers" formed as part of Germany's punk movement in the early 1980s. Their political-minded punk rock is known beyond Germany through songs such as "10 little Jaegermeisters".

Modern Talking

Germany's most successful disco-pop duo split after three years of roaring success. Their hit "You're my heart, you're my soul" went straight in to the top 10 in 35 countries.

Rammstein

Famous for their pyrotechnic stage shows. Even though the lyrics are almost exclusively in German this "dance l" band is popular abroad and recently became one of the most successful German-language bands ever.

I see you're using "rock" loosely. In which case:

Kraftwerk
Tarwater
Lali Puna
Ascii Disko
Can
Anthony Rother
Neu!
Xmal Deutschland
Camouflage
Ellen Allien

Yeah.... don't tell me you didn't know that. The only thing that surprised me about Germany was finding that Raemonn were German (one hit wonder... remember Supergirl ?).

Yeah, but it disproves the theory that they don't have a sense of humor...
