Bands (non folk)
Rammstein – I know, seems like a obvious populair choice.
But hear me out.
I like classical till metal. But it has to be musically interesting.
Most (non-german) people don’t listen to the lyrics, i did not either.
I found the music okay. Then i started to listen to the lyrics.
The lyrics are surprisingly deep.
Layers in the text, word jokes like:
Du hast… (you have, but sounds like hasst .. You hate)
Du hast mich… ( You have me, or sounds like you hate me)
Du hast mich…
Du hast mich gefragt… (You have asked me)
Although people think they are fascists or far-right. Coming from the punk scene, they are kind of the opposite.
Everything they do has a meaning, but sometimes you can “paste” different stories about the song.
Listen to Ohne Dich, and then see the Music Video.
Have a good listen to Germany, and Man gegen man.
There are others better in explaining .. see:
And a AI generated Music Video .. perfectly matching the Lyrics
