"Kriminalz?" Appears to be two German guys attempting to rap while wearing construction hats. German or not, how can this be for real?

It's obviously a joke. For more serious german underground rap, see epoxweb.de's hiphop traxx.

I feel honoured. I believe we are witnessing the birth of the Teutonic Shaggs

Fuenf Sterne Deluxe (site in German, and flash, so no babelfish...) is one of the few rap/hip-hop bands I listen to. It's German, and very well produced. The songs are enjoyable and reasonably intelligent.

Admittedly German does sound a bit scary in rapper form, but this band doesn't sound like a joke.

Am I the only one who conjured up Mike Myers' german art-house charachter from SNL upon looking at that site?

After Laibach covered the White Album, anything is possible.

Laibach actually covered Let It Be. I sent my Mefi Swapset "Across the Universe" once.

My current favorite "scaly German" character is DJ Hans Oberlander from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

I second the recommendation for Fuenf Sterne Deluxe, who are one of my musical favorites. Also check out Die Fantastische Vier and Dynamite Deluxe. Apparently, in Deutschland you have to have a number or the word "Deluxe" in your name to kick die funky Beatz.

What, you've never heard of Bomfunk MCs? Some german guys singing about hip-hop over euro-dance beats. I swear they sing phonetically, some of their pronounciation sounds strange sometimes. I don't think they're a joke though.

Bomfunk MCs are, eh, actually .... ummm .... sort of a little bit finnish.

I don't care what the haters say..."Nördlich by Nature" is still the greatest hip-hop title of all time. (okay, not all time, but you know . . . )

This reminds me of Ill Mitch.

I think you're talking about "Nordisch by nature" by Fettes Brot. It's actually mostly in Plattdeutsch, which is not a German dialect, but a separate language (with similarities to German, Dutch and English) which is spoken in Northern Germany. You can find the lyrics of the song
here.

Ah, a thank you to Milkwood, for reminding me of the Shaggs... I used to have their album, but the ex got it in the divorce. Lousy ex.
