And not forgetting the Kelly Family. Think the Von-Trapp Family Singers from
the Sound Of Music, singing Irish folks. The original family were from
Ireland, but emigrated in the 70s or 80s, so all the kids now are German.
The reason you've probably never heard of them, is the fact they are as bad
as you think they are. I'm sure Ireland breathed a sigh of relief when they
left :)

My funniest experience in Germany is when I was working with IQ (prog rock
band). After one of the gigs we were taken to a "rock disco". Can you
imagine anyone going to a rock disco and dancing to 'Suppers Ready' by
Genesis or 'Awaken' by Yes? Well the dance floor was packed and they were
going for it like it was a trendy nightclub on a Saturday Night. Hilarious
does not begin to describe the scene.

However, it should be noted that Germans do redeem themselves IMO with the
likes of KMFDM, Rammstein, Oomph, and several industrial based bands ... oh
and Kraftwerk.
