Die Roten Punkte

This campy German duo slap on CBGB's T-shirts, smear clown makeup on their faces and crank out chirpy pop-punk with tongues planted in their cheeks. Culture clash is part of the appeal, but there's also something endearing about tunes like "Ich Bin Nicht Ein Roboter (I Am a Lion)," in which a robot yearns for life among the jungle's big cats.
