Die Toten Hosen is a German punk band from Düsseldorf that has been highly successful in Germany since the 1980s.
The band's name literally means "The Dead Pants/Trousers". "Tote Hose" is a German expression meaning "nothing going on" or "boring". Their name can figuratively be translated as "The Dead Beats".
This is their full - and excellent - performance from Sunday Live @ Rock am Ring 2012, as Sunday's headliner no less - that's how popular they are in Germany, and they are celebrating their 30th anniversary this year as a band (founded in 1982). For now it is only available in
360p 480p but it's good quality. I'll upgrade as soon as higher resulutions show up on youtube. Enjoy this outstanding performance by a great band, even if Goethe's language might not be all that familiar to you.
Updated again.... fixed... now in 380p
