German Music: From "Schlager" To "Deutschrap" Via Rock And Techno | Meet The Germans



Do you know much about German music? Tune in to this episode of Meet the Germans to see Rachel sample different genres of mainstream music in Germany, from rock to hip-hop, techno to “Schlager.”

Rammstein, Helene Fischer and Capital Bra have probably never been on the same playlist before… but Meet the Germans is bringing them together for a musical one-off.

Rachel moved from the UK to Germany in 2016. As a relative newcomer she casts a fresh eye over German clichés and shares her experiences of settling into German life. Every two weeks she explores a new topic – from unusual bans to meaty cuisine or haunted castles. This week: the ultimate German music playlist.

  1. I keep an empty bottle of German wine I bought from a weinhaus opposite Carl Marx's house. White wine, 2004, riesling. It's Mosel wine. For me, she is the wine that represents Germany.

  2. You mentioned two Schlager singers from the US and Sweden working in Germany. So I'll mention Rea Garvey (Irish man who later married a German woman), especially as part of Reamonn. Later he started a solo career.
    Wir sind Helden and Sportfreunde Stiller were also great. Rosenstolz and Echt were also ok.
    Tokio Hotel was also very popular, especially for young girls.

  3. Loved the wine analogy! When my polish mother came first to Germany 40 years ago, she was first shocked about the music, 'cause it sounded for her like "Marching Music", but then she started to love the songs of Jürgen Drews and many from the 40s and 50s!

    More classic well known German artists:
    Jürgen Drews (Schlager)
    Comedian Harmonists (Acapella)
    Max Raabe (Crooner Singer)
    Scooter (Mainstream Techno)
    Deichkind (Electro-HipHop)
