in thread R or B?

good point generally, but Kraftwerk belongs to a different genre. A genre which *often* strives for sparsity and mantra-like lyrics.

    1. They are heavily sampled, for instance my "favorite" ColdPlay song (yuck) shines because they "borrowed" from Kraftwerk.
    2. Lyrics are overrated, I heard statistics that 60% of Americans struggle to understand the lyrics of English songs. Most people only catch the chorus.
    3. Believe it or not Rammstein has quite deep lyrics on multiple levels. But the biggest part of there fan-base doesn't even speak basic German.

      Lyrics are overrated, ... struggle ...

      That's definetely a dichotomy (i.e. "there are two kind of people") a sociologist should re-visit often. That's where the existence of Pop and Kitsch emanates from, AFAIC. Why do they exist at all?

      re: Rammstein, I guess that crowns German as the language of heavy metal?
