Interesting choice
I can see her being a fan

Maybe she's frustrated she had to be so gray and dull in the system that she thought promised her freedom?

She was into Nina Hagen before you ever heard of her.

It's been a long time I've heard any German. Like the sweet language of the angels themselves and not at all like a coffee can't worth of nuts, bolts, and nails in a blender.

I actually liked the song. For some weird unknown reason.

Back in the 80s, I always got Nina and Nena mixed up.

Might also qualify to be on the top 10 list at Gitmo.

Angel Merkel could kick Chuck Norris's ass in half and a dress.  She's a badass, and I hope she doesn't fade away.

You can't tell me it's not beautiful in the right context.

Club music played a huge, maybe even central, role in the collapse of the Wall and how Berlin rebuilt itself.

I always read about Nina Hagen in Creem, but never got around to listening. (Back then, you had to shell out two hour's pay to hear something that didn't get airplay.)
 
2021-11-30 12:27:46 AM  
Hagen is so good, I often listen to her German lyric songs, and have no clue who she is saying. But she says it SO WELL.

Wrong genre but hey, German. Also i think it will fit nicely into a subset of Fark's musical tastes.

Well, it was a steady time in German politics and I hate to see her go. After 16 years that's of course understandable, so fare well, Angie.

Her successor, Olaf Scholz, is a calm guy, too, so I expect a similar style from him. He actually used to be my boss in Hamburg (across a few levels of hierarchy) before he made the switch back to Berlin.

Nina Hagen won't be there either.

The Großer Zapfenstreich consists out of a fixed list of pieces played by the Bundeswehr's marching band and drum corps, and there are a few spots in the whole ritual for which the honoree may choose pieces.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gro%C3%9Fer_Zapfenstreich#Modern_German

The song will be played by the marching band :-)

I've never met people who were more proud to be German or who had bigger chips on their shoulders than the generation who were children during reunification.

Nina Hagen is a conspiracy theorist and spouts a bunch of crazy shiat
