Die Puhdys are a veteran German rock band, formed in Oranienburg, in what was then East Germany, in 1969, although they had been performing together, with various lineups, as the Puhdys since 1965. They continue to record and tour. Although they are especially popular in their native eastern Germany, the Puhdys enjoyed significant success outside the GDR, and were one of the first East German bands allowed to tour West Germany. With more than 18 million albums sold, they are probably the most successful German-language rock group
Relation to Rammstein:
Puhdys made a song together with Till Lindemann as a guest singer. The song name is Wut will nicht sterben (The anger wwill not die).
