Knorkator – Rette sich wer kann

I was never a big fan of comical metal bands, but lately I’m getting more and more into Knorkator. A band from Berlin, Germany which has been around since the 1990s. Here is their new video Rette sich wer kann (meaning Every man for himself). A social commentary you could say. The world is going to shit, but well, just keep on partying.

The video features cameos by some more or less famous people: former professional boxer Axel Schulz, Subway to Sally singer Eric Fish, and actress Ina Paule Klink.

Helge Schneider – Es gibt Reis


Helge Schneider is a famous German musician, multi-instrumentalist, comedian, author, and filmmaker. He’s most famous for his expressive improvisations both in music and comedy. His work is absurd, crude, and often pure nonsense.

This is the video for Es gibt Reis (with English subtitles) which is one of my favorite songs of Helge. It was released back in 1993 and it’s about inviting a girl for dinner. What’s for dinner? “It’s rice, baby. Baby, baby, it’s rice. Wild girl, shake your hair for me…”.
