From Boney M. to Rammstein: pop and rock from Germany
America invented rock’n’roll, England gave us beat music. But Germany too has played its part in shaping the history of pop and rock. Psychedelic krautrock became a byword for German music in the 1970s and 'Munich Disco' enriched the dance-pop scene and paved the way for techno. Punk, hardrock and electronica from Germany are also popular around the world.
Xavier Naidoo's soul vocals, cool look and positive messages have made him an important voice in German pop. Since the album Nicht von dieser Welt (1998) all of his studio albums have reached number one in the German charts.
