Top Ten Best German Bands

The Top Ten

1 Rammstein Rammstein Rammstein is a German Neue Deutsche Härte and Industrial Metal band consisting of Till Lindemann (vocals), Richard Kruspe (guitar), Paul Landers (guitar), Oliver Riedel (electric bass), Christoph Schneider (drums) and Christian Lorenz (keyboard), that formed in 1994 in Berlin . ...read more.

Not a SINGLE bad song! EVERY Rammstein song I have ever heard is just pure genius!

From their first album to their most recent, they are truly a legendary Metal band...

Rammstein, rammstein. Why The best because it is legendary band. Amazing melodies, its not the best German band, its best band worldwide. Just listen to albums Mutter or Sehnsucht and you will understand why its the best

I can't honestly think of a band as unique as Rammstein. Their sound is vulgar and powerful, and they 're lyrics are poetic and interesting. Their music will engulf any room it's played. Rammstein ueber alles!

The best voice to sing in German and the best arrangement for it.

2 Scorpions Scorpions Scorpions are a German rock band formed in 1965 in Hanover by Rudolf Schenker. Since the band's inception, its musical style has ranged from hard rock to heavy metal.

They are incredible and Klaus Meine is an awesome vocal! They are way better than Rammstein, Accept and any other german band! Definitely one of the world's greatest bands ever! Songs like Wind Of Change, When You Came Into My Life(both versions), Alien Nation, A Moment In A Million Years, Under The Same Sun, Rock You Like A Hurricane, Still Loving You, No Pain No Gain, Here in My Heart, Your Last Song, Humanity, We Were Born To Fly, We Will Rise Again-this proves they are definitely the best german band up till now.

NO ONE ON THIS LIST WOULD BE HERE IF IT WASN'T FOR THESE GUYS.
They are responsible for every German band who has reached fame somewhere other than Germany

I just found out they started in 1965! The songs I enjoy seem to come from the mid seventies. The music is catchy and the sound of the singer's accent is endearing. It still seems to have a definite European feel even if you didn't know they were from Germany. I only found out about the band when my brother came back from the Army. Although I didn't approve of his military stint, I did approve of the music to which he introduced me. I don't know that much about the other bands listed. I approve of Kraftwerk and wonder why Nina Hagen didn't make the list as well. The inclusion of Kraftwerk validates the fact that this is not only a rock list.

Scorpions, how many good memories are connected with them. First german famous group, many hit songs, 53 years with the same vocalist and rhythm guitarist, 19 albums, one of the firsts groups that visited USSR...

3 Tokio Hotel Tokio Hotel Tokio Hotel are a pop rock band from Magdeburg, Germany, consisting of Bill Kaulitz (singer), Tom Kaulitz (guitar), Gustav Schäfer (drums) and Georg Listing (keyboards, bass) that formed in 2001. ...read more.

Tokio Hotel has been around for quite awhile, and we KNOW they are going to stick around for many more years to come. And what is great about them is that even though they have been around for so many years, they hold their fans well and have the amazing ability to crank out more and more great music and evolve according to changes that need to be made. They keep everything interesting and updated, from altering their music style a little to glamorizing their look and shows. Bill has the most amazing voice I have ever heard, Tom and Georg are absolutely rocking' on the guitars, and Gustav is a wonderful drummer. They are fabulous and capture everybody's interest with the whole deal about Bill and Tom being twins (not to mention the twins' amazing looks and fashion styles) and they have such good hearts. All four of the members are amazingly polite and sweet boys, and they care so much about their fans. Fans, I might add, that are very numerous in quantity

Tokio Hotel brings ...more - ingridbrindle

I love the way they became in who they are, who could know that 4 boys from a little town would become into super stars

Amazing band; The fact that they are one of the very few still together more than ten years after being successful even though they were barely fifteen at the time is already incredible; but they manage to make each record evolve. It's never boring, they never keep on doing the same usual thing, they experiment, and each record is better than the last, even though they take quite some time along the way. They took a five year break, which is basically a professional suicide, and still managed to make their last album successful because well their music is simply great.

I love the whole band, but I must be honest: the main reason why they've been that successful (internationally, which is quite incredible for a German band) is their very frail and beautiful lead singer Bill Kaulitz. Of course his voice is great and boy can he sing ; but most than that, he has sex appeal, he has stage presence, he has that little something only stars have. Daring, audacious, glamorous, he kept on ...more

Rediculous to say that their international success is du to precious Billy...It's teamwork. Bill would have never made it this far without his beloved twin or his ever supporting bandmates the G's. His own words by the way...

Alright I understand Rammstein being high and Scorpions should be first but really? TOKIO HOTEL? They're just a big joke. Kreator should definitely take their place on this list at #2 after Scorpions

Rammstein 1st, laugh out loud, Tokio Hotel 2nd, laugh out loud, Scorpions 3rd, big joke! Scorpions should be 1st. Even if I prefer Kreator, Helloween or Accept, I have to admit that Scorpions is a legendary hard rock band and REAL musicians. But Rammstein and Tokio Hotel things shouldn't be in that ranking, or at the bottom of that list. If Justin Bieber was germanic, I'm sure he would be 1st too... What a shame!

Oh my God, one of the best Thrash Metal bands is forgotten
The real list must be: 1. Scorpions 2. Avantasia 3. Rammstein 4. Tokio Hotel 5. Kreator

"Satan is Real" Tokio Hotel is in TOP 3
SHAME, SHAME

6 Helloween Helloween Helloween is a German power metal band founded in 1984 in Hamburg, Northern Germany. The band is a pioneering force in the power metal genre, and their second and third studio albums, Keeper of the Seven Keys: Part I and Part II, are considered masterpieces of the genre.

Thank me for adding Helloween to this list, for me they are the second best band. - MartinHelloween

Most underrated hard rock band of the eighties! Their music was original, but they also had outstanding lyrics. Real ones. Ones you could actually think about and live.

They are great I live in Canada and nobody know them when I listening some helloween and people around are like what is this band it's good music and I told them it's helloween power metal German band lol!

I'd never heard of this band before, but after checking them out on YouTube... yeah, I have to agree... how the heck are the below some of the ones above. Arguably, their style is not quite as diverse, but let's face... the 80's itself was pretty uniform in style too.

7 Accept Accept Accept is a German heavy metal band from the town of Solingen, originally assembled by former vocalist Udo Dirkschneider, guitarist Wolf Hoffmann and bassist Peter Baltes.

if Accept isn't in the top 5 of the best German bands, this list is really pathetic...
you should check out their classic songs "Fast as a Shark" and "Balls to the Wall", as well as other songs like "Teutonic Terror", "Restless And Wild", "Princes of the Dawn"... - rock2metal

This band is really amazing, love the new singer, Mark Tornillo! They were big in the 80's, then came back again with a 2010 album, Blood of the Nations. Check out their classics, Fast as a Shark or Balls to the Wall, and also check out the newer stuff like Teutonic Terror! These guys are amazing. Heavy metal! - xSpartanXx

great metal band! this band is a marvel - rock2metal

8 Kraftwerk Kraftwerk Kraftwerk is a German electronic music band formed by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider in 1970 in Düsseldorf. The band was fronted by both Hütter and Schneider until Schneider's departure in 2008.

One of the most influential bands of all time
Electronic version of Beatles
I can't believe that only 3 percent agree

Most of the influence from modern music no matter what genre, comes from Kraftwerk and most artists and musicians have multiple elements of Kraftwerk in there songs. They're just awesome anyways.

Originators of techno sound.

Most important artist after Elvis Presley

9 Sodom Sodom Sodom is a German thrash metal band from Gelsenkirchen, formed in 1981. They have gone through many line-up changes, leaving bassist vocalist Tom Angelripper as the only constant member.

Along with kreator best thrash metal bands of Europe!

Stunning Band... Up there with Scorps for me

11 Oomph! Oomph! Oomph! is a German industrial metal band formed in Wolfsburg, Germany in 1989. The band is considered the pioneers of the German Neue Deutsche Härte movement.

Oomph! Is an excellent band; their songs are great, and many of their songs, such as Labyrinth, are essentially short renditions of classical cultural items. In the case of Labyrinth, it is a nod toward Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and Brennende Liebe is sort of an alternative Frankenstein tale. Both songs and music videos are intricately and excellently done.

People like Rammstein due to their live performance but on the other hand Oomph! Likes to stay focused in their songs. I personally love Oomph! A lot more than Rammstein and I like Rammstein a lot UNTIL I heard Oomph!. Tip: Listen to Oomph! If you like Rammstein and you might like it, just because one song is not good listen to another, maybe that one is

Oomph is the best German band I've ever heard. They're so creative and just make good music. Oh I love Oomph! So much

12 Destruction Destruction Destruction is a German thrash metal band. They are considered one of the "The Big Four" of the German thrash metal scene, the others being Kreator, Sodom and Tankard.

Thrash metal at its finest.

13 Die Toten Hosen Die Toten Hosen Die Toten Hosen is a German rock band currently consisting of Campino (vocals), Andreas von Holst (guitar), Michael Breitkopf (guitar), Andreas Meurer (bass) and Vom Ritchie (percussion), that was formed in 1982. ...read more.

From what I can see, this list is currently a little biased towards a more thrash or raw almost shock rock sound. Die Toten Hosen is definitely not in this category, but I would say that from what I know of them, they are definitely a more developed band and frankly... other than Rammstein... one of the only ones I would be interested in, in that they actually sing... IN German.

Die Toten Hosen are a gift from God to mankind. I love the deep lyrics and their guitar skills keeps me dead electrified. As I can see all other bands listed here have been compared to others but Die Totens are just one of a kind. Seriously which genuine rock lover doesn't adore this Mega Band. -Chege (Kenia)

Die Toten Hosen in my opinion is so much better than all of the bands above it. They are not heavy metal scream-o type, their like your hard rock/modern rock band you hear in America but Deutsch. I love them and have been hooked on them for years. I am happy to call myself a fan of Die Toten Hosen. And if you haven't listened to them yet, I more than highly suggest you should start to.

Not a SINGLE bad song ever made by die Toten Hosen love these guys

14 Edguy Edguy

Hey, this band is underrated in this list! It's the best!

Tobias is a genius! 17th? Why? Edguy is a true heavy metal band!

They need to place somewhere on this list

I'd say this should be at LEAST 5

15 Avantasia Avantasia Avantasia is a German supergroup rock opera project created by Tobias Sammet, vocalist of the band Edguy.

I am personally a scorpions fan but I also really like Avantasia so I just decided to go with Avantasia because it is lower down on the list and it is not where it should be scorpions should be #1 and Avantasia should #2 right behind the scorpions I guess all I am trying to say is that Avantasia and the SCORPIONS ARE THE BEST BANDS EVER AND SHOULD BE WAY HIGHER! 1!

It's simply one of the best power-metal band's out there! It obey's al the power metal rules as the best!

28. Songs come in two tempos: metal and ballad.
32. Play in as many bands as possible. More side projects and guest appearances means more epic!

And yet its still way more then just a "Power-Metal" band

Definitely deserves to be in top 5, common people vote!

Every single song from Avantasia is just awesome. And the lyrics are beautiful. Tobias us a genius composer

16 Can Can Can was a German experimental rock band formed in Cologne, West Germany in 1968 by the core quartet of Holger Czukay (bass), Irmin Schmidt (keyboards), Michael Karoli (guitar), and Jaki Liebezeit (drums). The group cycled through several vocalists, including Malcolm Mooney ('68–70) and Damo Suzuki ...read more.

I'm quite certain that Can should be at the top, given how much influence they've had on so many other artists over the years. If you were to remove that influence, perhaps 20% or more of the music we have now would not exist.

One of the best bands of all time, German or otherwise.

One of the best bands ever anywhere

Best band in the world ever.

Best band in the world, hands down! I can't believe they are number 20 on this list. Oomph! And Rammstein are good, but Die Arzte is number 1. They are everything anyone could want in a band

I love them! Good punk rock music and funny lyrics

Life would suck without their songs, it lightens up mood and brings a smile to sad faces

The best band in the world hands down. They even fought (and where killed by) Laura Croft.

21 Eisblume Eisblume Eisblume is a German pop rock band consisting of Ria Schenk (vocals), Benny Baumann (guitar), Philipp Schardt (bass), Philipp Schadebrodt (drums) and Golo Schultz (keyboards), that formed in 2007. ...read more.

Hey Dude no bad songs why is this band all the way down here! I mean I listen to them every day! - KiraMiacora23

Best German band in my opinion

The first band I really liked and listened when I was learning German

Eisblume had only one big hit in their home country and other German language nations, and released two albums, and I don't think many people remember them. I also think that many people dismissed them as a rip off from other well known female fronted German bands such as Silbermond or Wir sind Helden, but actually Eisblume were way more delicate and fantasy-esque, a bit like Evanescence, though not quite as magnificant (as Evanescence is one of 21st Century's best bands).

I am amazed that obviously they are better known overseas than in their home country, as many very popular bands such as Seeed or Ich+Ich are very low in the list, and Eisblume are placed in the same category as Die Ärzte, who are often considered the best German band by Germans. - Martin_Canine

22 Eisbrecher Eisbrecher Eisbrecher are a German Neue Deutsche Härte band that consists primarily of Alexander Wesselsky and Noel Pix, with live support from Jürgen Plangger, Rupert Keplinger, Achim Färber.

I just recently started listening to these guys and immediately became a fan. They remind me of Rammstein one of the best industrial rock bands in the world. Eisbrecher is more techno with club beats which is not a bad thing.

This band should be on 2nd after rammstein

Totally better than 39th. Not sure who is deciding this

Fun fact: next to his work with the Neue Deutsche Härte bands Eisbrecher and Megaherz, Noel Pix is also known for having performed the German theme songs for the first 10 seasons (and a few other soundtrack songs) of the "Pokémon" anime, as well as some other anime intros. This was at a time when anime series had blockbuster T.V. ratings, and one of the songs (the second one, "Pokémon Welt") even charted in the three German speaking countries, although not all too high. - Martin_Canine

Das Bose, Das Tier in Mir, and Mitternacht are the best tracks and Rammstein level by excellence.

25 Nena Nena

This is the only good German band. Ever. Get over yourselves

I went to one of their concerts! - waldo

The only worthwhile German band. Nena is the coolest ever! Also 1984-great year for music!

26 Neu!

Extraordinary innovative motorik styled music, original in it's concept and deceptively melodic. Hard to believe that they are not listed in the top 10 with can, Faust Amon Dul 2 and all the 70s German Cosmiche rockers.

27 Megaherz

Play "Jordan" and you will feel like you could take on an army. Powerful song. These guys ROCK!

Simply love the heavy grind, rhythm, and vocals. Like them just as much as Rammstein. Blender, Reppunzel, Zombieland some favorites!

28 And One

And one is simply just awesome no more to that

Surprisingly good. Worth a listen. Itunes had some of their stuff.

Their music is beyond amazing and meaningful, both in German and English.

29 Equilibrium Equilibrium Equilibrium is a German folk metal band. The band's music combines elements of folk music, power metal, black metal and symphonic metal with various other influences.

32 Lindemann Lindemann Lindemann is a German/Swedish industrial metal super-duo featuring lead vocalist Till Lindemann of Neue Deutsche Härte band Rammstein, along with multi-instrumentalist Peter Tägtgren of Swedish death metal band Hypocrisy and industrial metal project PAIN.

Brilliant! Till lindemann and Peter tägtgren with their humour and Tills magnificent voice. Shame there's only one album.

33 Faust

Another huge influence in my formative teenage years along with Kraftwerk. They understood concept albums and deserve more credit. Plus a cool name for those who appreciate the literary reference.

Originators of industrial sound. Haunting and innovative.

A unique band. The first commercial band to produce collages of sound although a lot of there album tracks are pastiches of established forms

Faust 1 and the Faust Tapes were ground breaking then their version of electro noise is as exciting as ever now. Sadly they, unlike their contemporaries Can and Amon Duul were rubbish live...

34 Angel Dust Angel Dust
35 Disillusion Disillusion
36 Tangerine Dream

This band is way too subtle, artistic, surrealist sounding... Once you listen to Tangerine Dream you realize this is something else. I would'd not expect them to be top ten because listening to them you cannot tell what kind of music it is. Yet, so many movies had them on their soundtracks and people would not even know they have been listening to TD for ever.

Why wasn't this band even on the list, much better and more influential than any of the more generic power metal bands or tokio hotel.

The most important band of all this list. Pioneered ambient, electronic, space, new age music, etc

Who are the idiots that have not put this highly influential band in the top five? Vote now.

38 KMFDM KMFDM KMFDM is an industrial band led by German multi-instrumentalist Sascha Konietzko, who founded the group in 1984 as a performance art project.

Incredibly diverse across their entire repertoire. I don't know what else to say - awesome industrial metal/techno sound, with bits and pieces of other genres and influences along the way. All in all, just incredible diversity, from dance/electronic to heavy/thrash metal, and everything in between. Great social commentary as well.

Awesome band, first heard them on the Mortal Kombat soundtrack, fan ever since, they should definitely be higher up on the list.

I don't care what reputation these guys and lady, earned from Columbine. They're are one of the best Industrial bands period. It's surprising that Germany could easily kick butt against the US when it comes to music.

39 Alphaville Alphaville Alphaville is a German synthpop/new wave band which gained popularity in the 1980s. The founding members were lead singer Marian Gold, Bernhard Lloyd, and Frank Mertens.

Alphaville's album 'Forever Young' is the greatest 80's synthpop I've ever heard. Singer Marian Gold has a fantastically unique multi-octavinal voice. The band have varied song styles: popular sentimental ballads (Forever Young), highly danceable songs (Big in Japan, Sounds Like a Melody, Dance With Me), ethereal masterpieces (A Victory of Love, Next Generation).

Not being from Germany, I never heard about around 80% bands in the list above Alphaville, but I heard a lot about this one. Forever young! :-)

I think Alphaville is the legend

Vastly underrated, perhaps came a little too late in the synthpop scene nevertheless they are up there with the ranks of erasure, yazoo, new order, ultavox and other legends.

40 Scooter Scooter Scooter are a German dance group founded in Hamburg, who have sold over 30 million records and earned over 80 Gold and Platinum awards.

Best band ever

Relaxing music for people with "complicated" and rich mind, 60- 80 bpm

They revolutionized European pop music in the 80s. Probably the best ever music band in the 80s.

The most selling German artist ever. ~120 million albuns world wide! Dieter Bohlen one of the best composers ever.

Silbermond is an excellent band but didn't know I can only vote once... But also: Nena (my favorite from 1983-now - went to see 4 shows in 2010 ans she's still touring & been making great music for near 30yrs); Rosenstolz (at it for 20yrs but I only heard them for first time March 2011 - bought all their dvds and music, and listen to them daily ever since - love them! ). Other good options: Juli; Ich & Ich, Wir Sind Helden, Aleen (was backup on Nena tour but great solo stuff if hard to find)

As an American I became a huge Nena fan becuase I was lucky enough to hear of her in 1983, and am happy to see she is more amazing than ever, now.
I am also a big Rosenstolz fan, but wasnt fortunate enough to hear of them until a few years ago, and been hooked ever since.
I love Silbermond too (extremely talented but commercial), and also enjoy Juli (great, except the most recent Juli album I didn't like at all), and Ich & Ich (my personal preference is female vocalist so a minus for them in my humble opinion).

My husband, who speaks zero German, loves Rammstein, whereas I cannot stand it, and cannot imagine even being able to stand the sound of Rammstein, no matter what language. Obviously to some people, Rammstein are great, and if it inspires my husband to actually study German, then more power to them!
But...
I cannot vote for any ONE German band.

I love this band, they are awesome. They are more modern than Nena, yet not overwhelming, with a great sound and understandable lyrics.

Silbermond (from Germany) and Christina Stürmer (from Austria) are the best.

Originally based in Germany, the four original members of the group's official line-up were Jamaican-born singers Liz Mitchell and Marcia Barrett, Maizie Williams from Montserrat and Bobby Farrell from Aruba.

Seriously? What has the world come to? Boney M was one of the best retro bands that ever was! Their songs are the best... "Ra-Ra-Rasputin, Lover of the Russian Queen..."

48 Michael Schenker Group

Inspired so many

Purely just because of the masterpiece of Mcauley Schenker Group.

49 Jam & Spoon

Unbelievable that no one added jam & spoon to the list. Tripomatic fairytale series, kaleidoscope and their other remixes including relax by frankie goes to Hollywood and on the deep forest world mix albums among others comprise some of the best ever dance music EVER in the world.

Jam & spoon and their tripomatic fairytale series set new standards for electronic music. Their remixes for frankie goes to Hollywood,deep forest are legendary. The album kaleidoscope is a killer. I suggest that one starts with tripomatic fairy tales 2001 followed by kaleidoscope
Kaleidoscope.

Nothing more need be said...if you have not experienced jam & spoon and you like electronic / dance /ambient then you are missing something.

50 Amon Düül II

Fell somewhat under the shadow of Jefferson Airplane, but really inventive acid rock. Consistently good albums

Pioneers.
