Sprechen sie deutsch? Kein Hass Da do Bad Brains in German

KEIN HASS DA sprechen sie Bad Brains en deutsch. And they fucking rule. Seriously, these german dudes are really just a bad brains tribute band, except for one difference: they’ve re-done 25 Bad Brains songs from 78-89 – IN GERMAN. I guess they also wrote their own lyrics and they’ll be releasing a CD & book called Hirntrafo, complete with illustrations and comics, on November 5th.

In their own words:

29 BAD BRAINS songs of 1978-89 have been transformed into German – but by no means this was done by just translating the original lyrics. Our transformations are very personal lyrics, written by Karl Nagel with the originals always in mind. Like the latter, they come straight from the heart, full of positive energy, and free of depression or cynisism. A clear, understandable language!

In the meantime, get your ass to their website and listen to the endless stream of Bad Brains covers because I haven’t figured out how to download them yet. Go. Now.
