121 St. Anger - Metallica
122 Golden Lights - The Smiths
123 Dancing in the Street - Mick Jagger and David Bowie
124 Body Say - Demi Lovato
125 No Joke - Shindy

Shindy is one of Germany's coolest rappers. He is carefree, easy going and fun, his lyrics are witty and his delivery on point. "No Joke" simply has to be a joke, despite the title. To demonstrate how bad the beat is, I recreated it in less than a minute - and I'm not a professional. It's just two extremely simple synth lines consisting of three or so tones repeated throughout the whole song, a basic kick and a clap that cuts off too early. That's it. Shindy's verse is below average and often makes little sense and sometimes doesn't rhyme, and during the chorus he just randomly jams in English words at the end of each line so it rhymes (dope / smoke / broke / joke). Then Ali Bumaye delivers his verse, and it must be the worst German rap verse of all time - even though Ali is a decent rapper. He rhymes "party" with "ooh la di the di" and T.V. host "Daniel Aminati", later on he criticizes the party lyrics by other rappers while beginning the verse with the statement he is throwing a ...more - Martin_Canine

136 Capital G - Nine Inch Nails
137 The Angel and the Gambler - Iron Maiden
138 No Remorse (I Wanna Die) - Slayer & Atari Teenage Riot
139 Showtime III - Kollegah

Kollegah is the greatest German rapper of all time. His vocabulary equals a dictionary, his rhymes are always multisyllabic (I know no line by him with a simple rhyme), his punchlines are clever and complex, playing with idioms and well known phrases, using homophones and double entendres at a level that make you astounded how good he understands how the German language is built.
Oh, and then there's "Showtime III", where sings the chorus himself more horribly than Eminem completely off-beat, over a cheap beat that sounds like a pre-teen made it using a free software. His lyrics are great, as they always are. But wow, does this have some horrible music. Funny thing is that he does a lot of PERFECT doubletome on this song but is completely off-beat when rapping slowly. How did this make the final cut of the album? Or rather: what was Kollegah on when recording this?

Ironically, he raps about how he raps over amazing killer beats on a line of this particular track. He rapped ...more - Martin_Canine
