Amazing German female fronted alternative rock band. Have had chart topping albums and went two times platinum with two of their albums. I think it's kind if weird which German artists make it big outside of their home country. Rammstein does not fit the mainstream in any way. Silbermond could have been huge in the US as alternative rock was at its peak in the 2000s. Sure, the lyrics are in German, but so are Rammstein and the music of Silbermond speaks for itself. - Martin_Canine
