Here's one from the archives. I remember standing in line outside the Majestic Theater back in '95 for a Die Krupps show and getting heckled for dressing like a fascist (red neck tie, black shirt, biker leather... same as now pretty much.) The irony of course is that Die Krupps' biggest hit [above] is about their guilt over German politics, and the content of industrial music for the most part is as extreme liberal left wing as it gets. (Not that I should really care what some crackhead said 12 years ago.) For all that 'Fatherland' lacked in lyrical subtlety and nuance, it made up for with some killler riffs.
