I personally love the indierock band Madsen:
Kompass: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbZ6FGcwhl0
Sirenen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vS-7vk0-iuw

Another really good artist is Thees Uhlmann:
Zugvögel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cDkSxTunlCo
He used to be in the band Tomte (or still is, but they don't really make music together anymore):
Ich sang die ganze Zeit von dir: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M6zP71psCT4

Wir sind Helden is more 2000-pop and one can be annoyed by the sound, I love it:
Nur ein Wort: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X5kmM98iklo

Then there are of course Die Ärzte a famous german punk band that's been around forever:
Schrei nach Liebe: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6X9CEi8wkBc
Himmelblau: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZwTeyw8c8g

Sportfreunde Stiller - Ein Kompliment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfD7Dc-qhuc

Die Toten Hosen Hier kommt Alex: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=neNfmYN6N08

Kettcar - Balu https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxE95eXeVfQ

I have a German music playlist, but can't get the link to work.

Some of my personal favorite German artists are Grossstadtgefluster, Peter Fox, and Oomph.

Irgendwie, irgendwo, irgendwann by Nena. She also sang neunundneunzig luftballons.

Can anyone recommend rock or pop artists or songs? Not like Rammstein,something softer. Also I like older music and bands like The Beatles,Queen,Blondie and Abba.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/tiramisues

Check out my reccomendations. I love older stuff as well and could listen to the Beatles all the time, so maybe some of them could be your taste too.

Danke schön! This Wir sind Helden isn't by Bowie? Or it's remake? If you remember anything else please write! And yeah The Beatles rules! :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/tiramisues

No, as awesome as Bowie is, Wir sind Helden the name of a band. :)

I added a song by "die toten Hosen" (as someone else already mentioned) and "Kettcar" above (I thought it was best to collect it there).

The Beatles actually sang some of their songs in German "Komm, gib mir deine Hand" and "Sie liebt dich " Sorry I do not have links.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/niki250

Danke schön! I've listened to them and I think they sound rather interesting but I don't know how accurate their pronunciation is,cause John's says "froh" kinda suspicious. :)

What´s about:

Both are really old and were very popular at that time.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/InuzukaShino

Hmm, which music do you like? What do you prefer?

If you don´t know, you could also search by yourself, for example:

  • Deutscher Rap
  • Deutscher Hip Hop
  • Deutscher Rock
  • Deutscher Pop
  • Deutscher Jazz
  • Deutsche Volksmusik
  • Deutscher Schlager
  • Deutscher Blues
  • Best German Songs
  • ... (usw)

But I guess, you may looking for something, you can good understand, so here some examles:

Some good suggestions here already but I can't believe no one has mentioned die toten Hosen! I also really like Farin Urlaub Racing Team. If you prefer pop music then you might like Luttenberger*Klug.
