Forget Rammstein, or whoever the **** they are, here are the real German bands: CAN, Kraftwerk, Amon Duul II, Faust, Neu!, Tangerine Dream, Guru Guru, La Dusseldorf, Cosmic Jokers... Here's a documentary the BBC made a few years ago to get you started:

In 6 parts







Here's quick play list I made, just a dozen bare essentials. Most of it is easy to find...

I love Tangerine Dream to bits, but thought they were more electronic than rock? I will be checking out all the others though if they are as good!

"Krautrock" doesn't really have to be "rock", just psychedelic music from late 60s / 70s West Germany. Most Krautrock bands, like TD, experimented heavily with analogue synthesisers and ambient music. TBH no Krautock band really sounds the same as the next.

I listened to half of ricochet by tangerine dream once. Weird as hell but decent.
There are some brilliant german bands around though:


There's nothing wrong with rammstein though!

Krautrock =/= German rock music.

Pretty underrated band:

Unrelated to krautrock, but the best German band of all time is Dark Fortress, as well as Sodom, Kreator, Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze

I've watched that documentary before and it's actually pretty good. The BBC do some good documentaries on music sometimes.


And Autobahn is a fantastic album.
