Not exactly a face of the Neue Deutsche Welle because she was around already for quite some time but that song was a biggie back when - the song was asking for a new generation of men. Pat Benatar and Joan Jett rolled into one.
Not exactly New German Wave here but NICHTS was always something special. Maybe because the group was founded by members of the seminal Dusseldorf Punk band, DER KFCor because of the (quintessential) aseptic vocal style of singer Andrea Mothes.
Anyway, their song 'Ein deutsches Lied' drew a lot of criticism because back then, as a rock band, singing in german was something you'd better not do. It was uncool, it was "verboten." But times have changed, and NICHTS have reunited recently with a new singer.
