after watching germany's Viva music channel for a few days, i've realised it very much is, and that german hiphop is in fact worse than french:
make me chuckle.
rammstein can be pretty funny really
Rammstein are quality.
is awesome and catchy. even if the title and lyrics are a bit shit.
but they have techno and Krautrock and that wins.
I like a few though, there are plenty that are simply comical

und listen to Kraftwerk!
I'd completely forgotten about Die Fantastischen Vier. They were mint, they used to be on mtv all the time in the early/mid nineties.
Und Tokio Hotel...ekelhaft.
and you shouldn't really base your judgement on German music just on that.
They used to have a good programme called Fast Forward but it's long gone...
To my ears and for what it's worth there isn't a band as good as Tocotronic in Britain but I'm German so I understand the words. A lot of German music just doesn't translate so well...

Blah blah blah....

meant to spark an actual debate about german music; just like any country it has its fair share of genius. it was more to make people watch those videos. which are acely awful.
I just wanted to talk about this band again...
Oh and here's another German classic from this year:
with stern grunts puts a a crooked smile on my face..
looks like he is12 years old. Some French hip-hop is good, so leave it alone!
is where she wiggles her ass around while singing 'scheisse' and she has shit on her ass.
is good, sometimes better than US hip hop - certainly beats the pants off uk hip hop
were german and amazing.
So were Trio.
MALARIA were amazing too.
one's mentioned Faust! They're gods, I tell you, gods.
dutch hip hop is amazing.
this song has my favourite lyrics ever.
That german hip-hop song is quite easily the worst thing I've seen this year, especially the poor MF Doom impersonation/rip-off.
The best thing about that Jimi Blue song is that he says 'Nowember'.
Thanks for this.

Amon Duul II
die hoefbrauhaus, besonders mit schlager musik!
hat jemand josephine fosters wolf in sheeps clothing gehoert?! es ist toll! Ich weiss sie ist nicht deutsch aber die lieder sind, und sie sind sehr gut.
that is Nena (yes, of 99 Red Balloons), one of Trio (as in Da Da Da) and some other bloke covering Young Folks?
NEU! ? and slightly obscure but the excellent Popol Vuh ?
See; Rechenzentrum, Thomas Köner, Apparat, Ellen Allien as well of Kraftwerk of course.
I have to admit some of the stuff is pretty laughable, but every country has its fair share of rubbish.
