Who doesn’t know Autobahn? Three dudes who published a groundbreaking album in the late 70s and invented early techno-pop.
Later, their success wore off, so they reformed the band under the name The Nihilists. They believe in nothing. Their musical career came with average success at best, so they started looking into side jobs like abduction and peeing on rugs.
They continue to write songs even though they’re more niche. Among the most popular ones are “Tomorrow Ve Come Back and Ve Cut Off Your Chonson” and “STFU Donnie.”
