Awesome! Thanks for sharing! I would love to eventually learn German. One of my favorite bands growing up was a German rock band called Tokio Hotel. They make English albums as well as German but I like listening to the German albums (I just can't sing along very well) :)

Yeah, there is this bad rap about German. Partially makes sense, as it sounds weird to other language groups.

In Poland, as an example, we say that even a prayer sounds like cursing :)

Or that if you want to properly speak German, you should shout it ;) (to make it more catastrophic I guess).


On the other note - I have heard many nice German words and dialects and it wasn't harsh or ugly at all. I think it depends and in the end it's a language as all others :)

For me the German language sounds like music, but the video is still very funny

I have a few albums by the German group Rammstein, may not be the best example as they do quite heavy industrial music, but most of their stuff sounds angry even when it's about angels
