For two decades they hold the German music world in suspense. We celebrate 20 years with 20 songs.

Committing to the twenty best tracks of this high-caliber canon : no easy task. Here are likely opinions are as far apart as in almost any other musical act. We tried anyway. Nun liebe Kinder, gebt fein Acht …
