Knorkator is a German band from Berlin-Köpenick that combined Industrial Metal with non-serious and comical elements. They proclaimed themselves to be "Germany's most band in the world" (German: "Deutschlands meiste Band der Welt"), as the title "The best band in the world" was already taken by Die Ärzte. The band was founded in 1994, but only played live gigs in the Berlin / Brandenburg area until 1998.Read More...
Knorkator gained further fame (and some notoriety) in 2000 with their performance of Ick wer zun Schwein (sic; literally - berlin dialect "I'm turning into a pig") in the German national qualification for the Eurovision song contest. Knorkator's wild stage shows and explicit lyrics, as well as the fact that nearly half of the vocalist's body is tattooed black, have earned them a reputation as a chaotic comedy band; however, the band's music actually shows considerable technical and artistic merit that is sometimes overlooked.
Most of Knorkator's lyrics are in German; however, some songs also feature English (Beating around the bush, Ma Baker etc.), Thai (Mai khao djai, Khid tyng baan), Latin (Aeger sum, Absolution) or French (Ma belle fêmme, Franz Hose) lyrics.

- LyricsUnter den Gräsern
nähre ich mich von Dunkelheit
viele Tage schon
besessen und furchtlos,
kleine Welt, die ich ertasten kann
- LyricsShe was the meanest cat in old Chicago town.
She was the meanest cat, she really moved them down.
She had no heart at all, no no no heart at all.
She was the meanest cat; oh, she was really tough.
She left her husbands flat; he wasnt tough enough.
- LyricsFalls du in stillen Momenten
ob deines Verstandes in Zweifeln versinkst
warum du dein kostbares Leben
mit einem Idioten wie mir verbringst,
der alles das ignoriert, was dich definiert
