Hebrew Punks

Apparently Israel has a pretty awesome punk scene. This band is my current favorite. https://youtu.be/jyS1YuTlwug

Do you know these guys?

All their songs are about Israeli chavs (Arsim). The first two are about a group of arsim who get into wild adventures, while the third is about someone from an ars suburb who moves to tel aviv. There's some really nice word play in them ("electric horse" = "electric bike").

Another good band are these guys: https://bolabar.bandcamp.com/ . Most of their songs are jokes about the Israeli punk scene and they use some weird esoteric slang (shikitim - I have no idea what it means. Chusham - archaic hebrew word for idiot.)
