Top Ten Best German Bands
The Contenders: Page 3
I suggest you guys listen to "vollmond" by this band, it deserves a thumbs up.V 1 Comment
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!
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.V 3 Comments
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!V 1 Comment
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..."
Purely just because of the masterpiece of Mcauley Schenker Group.
Awesome music not for mass listening
Gotta bet higher on this list though
Fell somewhat under the shadow of Jefferson Airplane, but really inventive acid rock. Consistently good albumsV 1 Comment
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
Nothing more need be said...if you have not experienced jam & spoon and you like electronic / dance /ambient then you are missing something.
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 everV 1 Comment
One of my personal favorite German bands.
Revolverheld is awesome. Should be top ten.
Best of German band
Revolver deserves the top ten! the vocal of Johannes Strate is really nice. And the melodies are totally rocking.V 1 Comment
Best riffs, best lyrics, best vocals great emotion pure hard rock!
Awesome Band with deep lyrics! And no, they aren't nazis!
They are simply the best. In short, "Legends Never Die"
The loudest chorus in the world!V 5 Comments
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!
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.
My dear goodness, this band is just beyond belief and so fantastic!
I want to break things when I listen to NecrophagistV 1 Comment
Why was Running Wild not on this list?
Best German Metal Band of all timeV 1 Comment
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.
