    French... /American. Kind of a mix I guess. Great beat nonetheless.

    Just going to put this here because I believe this kickstarted internet "stars" and possibly memes.

    I wish everybody would link this way: clear easily readable link captions and no huge integrated flash boxes.

    Rammstein - Ich Will - YouTube
    If you like Rammstein you'll probably also like these too (both have various English titles):
    Oomph! - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (kind of Rammstein's role model)
    Eisbrecher - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (although they don't like to be compared to Rammstein ;) )

    Some other great German band is the (punk) rock band:
    Die Toten Hosen - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    which English speaking people most likely know for the song "Pushed again".

    Alizee - Jen ai marre - YouTube
    There's an English version of that song called "I'm fed up". And yes, her English is terrible (or at least was then).

    A great french singer is:
    Zaz (singer) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    If you ever have a chance to see these two live, take it!:
    Rodrigo y Gabriela - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    If you're an open-minded metal fan google for their version of Metallica's "Orion" and you'll know why. ;)

    It's certainly a bit more involved, but try this: (I hate having to open yet another tab to view a video.)

    Christopher Tin - Baba Yetu (Official Music Video) - YouTube
    In Swahili. Amazing song.

    Yeah, I hate flash boxes too :p
    And the links I posted are very easy, copy paste the youtube address, the readable link captions are automatically put in by firefox/nbr/youtube.
    Thanks for the pointers to other groups.


    I have liked Eisbrecher, some nice pounding songs
    Eisbrecher - Vergissmeinnicht - YouTube

    And Rammstein is awesome in general. Their album Mutter is very good.

    Basshunter - Boten Anna (HQ) - YouTube

    New version of a classic song
    Nena-99 Luftballons new version (2009) with lyrics - YouTube

    Another Band I like is this Czech Band:
    Kabát - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    TBH my knowledge about Czech language is terrible (my klingonese is slightly better :p ) but the songs are sweeping, especially if you looked up the translations and familiarized yourself with the Czech pronounciation to actually understand the words they're singing.

    Oh, btw of course the klingon anthem is a great song! Don't use youtube videos from the Star Trek series to learn the text! The pronounciation is always wrong. Be careful with written lyrics too, they often contain minor errors in transliteration but it's usually safe to learn the text based on them.
    But if you know the text there's nothing greater than sitting around a camp fire, starting this song, seeing all the disturbed faces of the others and having one or two random dudes suddenly singing along with you, increasing the confusion of the others even more. :D
