DIE TOTEN HOSEN - Ballast Der Republik + Die Geister, Die Wir Riefen (2012)
Die Toten Hosen is a German punk band from Düsseldorf. They have enjoyed decades-long mass appeal in Germany. The band's name literally means "The Dead Pants" (i.e. trousers) in English, although the phrase "tote Hose" is a German expression meaning "nothing going on" or "boring". Their name is figuratively best translated as "The Dead Beats". The members of Die Toten Hosen are Campino (Andreas Frege), Kuddel (Andreas von Holst), Vom (Stephen 'Vom' Ritchie), Andi (Andreas Meurer) and Breiti (Michael Breitkopf). Although most of the members are German, drummer Vom is actually from England and replaced Wölli as the drummer in 1999.
Although the band has its roots in punk rock, their style is far more than just punk rock. The band has visible influences from Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Hardcore Punk and also Alternative Rock. Die Toten Hosen constantly improved their skills through many years of stage experience, new contacts with other musicians and the experience they gained in foreign countries. Since the late 1980s the band had great commercial success which put them in good financial standing and in 1995 they even established their own record label JKP. All in all this enables them to put through their own ideas according to their own visions. In some of their songs Die Toten Hosen experiment with strings or wind instruments. A few songs have elements that are lifted from jazz (e.g. Warum werde ich nicht satt), reggae (Zehn kleine Jägermeister) or Yugoslavian gypsy music (Das Mädchen aus Rottweil).
For the most part The Toten Hosen have not departed substantially from their original style of music. Beaten quavers and power chords, easily understandable texts, simple melodies, anthem-like choruses and dropping of long solos belonging to that. - wikipedia
