45 Silbermond Silbermond Silbermond is a German alternative rock band consisting of Stefanie Kloß (vocals), Thomas Stolle (guitar), Johannes Stolle (bass), Andreas Nowak (drums) that formed in 2000. ...read more.

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.

Someone listed Nena (my longtime favorite) to be "the only worthwhile" German band. I do not agree with this ...more

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.

46 Gentleman

Compared to the others a REAL musician who is kind of a newcomer being still modern. I have to know - I'm german myself ;)! The others are already too old.. Sorry..

Greatest lyrics compared to the rest in this list.
Also great music

I saw him in concert in Nice, and I have to say, that was a really great concert!

47 Boney M Boney M Boney M. is a vocal group created by German record producer Frank Farian. 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

Purely just because of the masterpiece of Mcauley Schenker Group.

49 Unheilig

Awesome music not for mass listening

Gotta bet higher on this list though

50 Amon Düül II

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

51 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.

52 Heaven Shall Burn Heaven Shall Burn

One of most death metal I ever heard.. Great riff and deep growl with some quality to make many great songs

Very good band great music doesn't matter what you listen to you will like it if you like hard core metal

In Flames+Metallica+Lamb of God=Heaven Shall Burn!

Its so very best metal band ever

55 Warlock

WARLOCK FOREVER! Doro is the best girl singer ever. I really hope, that people some day will understand, that rammstein are brutality and real bands are the classic once!

Warlock should be up much higher!

56 Dat Adam Dat Adam Dat Adam is a German experimental hip hop and electronica group consisting of vocalists Thaddeus “Taddl” Tjarks and Ardian “Ardy” Bora, and producer Marius “Marley” Ley, which was formed in 2014. ...read more.
57 Culcha Candela

Dancehall and political themes?

Bad combination, but these guys managed it.

A group whose members are from all over the world, but all living in Germany. Influences from here and there, definitely the best. It is a shame if you dunno the group.
Most songs are fantastic, the others are awesome.

58 Necrophagist Necrophagist Necrophagist is a German technical death metal band, founded and fronted by guitarist and vocalist Muhammed Suiçmez.

My dear goodness, this band is just beyond belief and so fantastic!

I want to break things when I listen to Necrophagist

Best German Metal Band of all time

60 Wumpscut

Bleak and desolate industrial techno, very influential to many other acts

Very dark, intense industrial. Also lots of replay value, because they're so different than most, and each song sounds unique. Rammstein has an awesome live show, but Wumpscut wins as far as my earholes are concerned.

Not for everyone but defiantly for me. Can't get enough W:!

I am not fluent in German but for some reason enjoy songs in german, Rammstein was the fist german band I got into and W: was the only one that kept me going for album after album. If you like strong/creepy melodies and a brilliant mix of German/English lyrics. W: is for you.
