And Danzig is the German name for Gdańsk - a city in Poland (a Baltic Sea port).
I don't know why he has chosen Danzig but it was probably related to the fact that his family was of Italian, German, and Scottish heritage. - Metal_Treasure
They are an Australian rock band - Metal_Treasure
I know the name of this band only because in 1999 their song "Fried Chicken and Coffee" was nominated for a Metal Grammy. And the song isn't metal at all. Neither is the band. - Metal_Treasure
Hanoi is the capital of Vietnam. But this is a Finnish glam rock band with some members from other countries. The band had some success in the 80s but unfortunately it will be associated mostly with a tragic accident:
Their British drummer Nicholas Dingley aka Razzle died in a drunk-driving car accident in the US.
The drunk driver was Mötley Crüe's singer Vince Neil. They were friends. - Metal_Treasure

The group of Xavier Naidoo, a best selling and very gifted German singer and songwriter in the soul and RnB genre. Despite his talent, he is also a supporter of radical conspirqcy theories. On his solo projects, he so far mostly hinted at his beliefs, so everybody could fully enjoy them, but on the last Söhne Mannheims album he went full B.O.B. mode, with a dangerous aggression and wordings resembling political revolutionaries.
They believe the German city Mannheim is a new Jerusalem. - Martin_Canine
