We've analyzed all major international music markets and studied data on more than 1000 German music productions, all global hits over the past 40 years. Here's the result: the 10 most successful music acts from Germany since 1970.
Number 10: Cascada
Natalie Horler is the face of Cascada. But DJ Manuel Reuter and producer Yann Peifer are also part of the act. In 2005, Cascada had their international breakthrough with "Everytime We Touch”, a cover of a track by Scottish singer Maggie Reilly. Cascada have gone on to sell some 30 million albums worldwide.
Number 9: Enigma
"MCMXC a.D." was Enigma’s first album. Released in 1990, it charted in the Top 5 in five European countries and shot to second place in New Zealand and Australia. German producer Michael Cretu is the mastermind behind Enigma. Before Enigma, he made Sandra into a star.
Number 8: Rammstein
Explosive and provocative, Rammstein are known as Germany’s bad boys of rock. They released their first studio album more than 20 years ago. But it was their follow-up, "Sehnsucht”, that brought them worldwide fame. It went platinum in several European countries as well as in the U.S. and Canada.
Number 7: Kraftwerk
Innovative and visionary, Kraftwerk have been a force to reckon with since the 1970s. The legendary Dusseldorf act may be publicity-shy, but they’ve exerted a powerful influence all around the world. Today they’re regarded as pioneers of techno and electro-pop.
Number 6: Donna Summer
Donna Summer moved from the U.S. to Munich in the late 1960s. That’s where she released the "Love to Love You Baby” in 1975. The song was ((co-written and)) produced by Giorgio Moroder, inventor of synth-disco. "Love to Love You Baby” made Donna Summer into an international star. Another global hit by the Queen of Disco: "I Feel Love”, released in 1977.
Number 5: James Last
German-born band leader James Last, who died in June 2015, was an international star. He released more than 200 albums, which sold more than 80 million units worldwide over his long career. The "king of easy listening”, he’s still known as the inventor of "Happy Sound”. Some of his biggest hits include "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye” and "Proud Mary".
Number 4: Scorpions
The Scorpions are one of the most successful rock bands ever, and they’ve sold more than a hundred million albums worldwide. Their classic rock ballad "Winds of Change” is still associated with the fall of the Berlin Wall - even though it was actually released a year later. Other megahits include "Rock You Like a Hurricane” and "We Built This House”.
Number 3: Snap!
The biggest hit by Eurodance act Snap! was "(I’ve Got) The Power”, released in 1990. The project was the brainchild of producers Luca Anzilotti and Michael Münzing. But Snap! were anything but a one-hit wonder. In all, 14 of their songs charted internationally, and they sold more than 22 million albums worldwide.
Number 2: Scooter
In 1994, Scooter saw their international breakthrough with "Hyper Hyper”, a song with simple lyrics and a catchy beat. With 17 studio albums and more than 60 singles, they’ve been a fixture on the international charts ever since. Many of their lyrics are famous around the world. When Scooter are on the road in Russia, for example, their fans still come up to them and ask: "How much is the fish?”
Number 1: Boney M.
Hit-machine Boney M. are the most successful act from Germany since 1970. Their many studio albums and singles stormed the international charts. Boney M. was the creation of German producer and songwriter Frank Farian. But Farian didn’t just stand behind the mixing console - he also sang the male vocals.
