Strauss ex Machina's Satire of "the Scene"

The following was passed on to us by Katti Cernak in the comments of another post and, while I am a bit late posting it, it is too glorious not to. Strauss has managed to parody just about everything, the good, the bad, and the ugly from what I lovingly refer to as dude-dustrial. The trance noises and boring beats, the misogynistic lyrics, the stupid porn samples, the outfits, very very nice. I almost shot tea out of my nose reading the German lyrics. Take a look below, and don't forget to follow along in the lyrics. To read Strauss' own commentary, read the about section under the video at the original link.

(The only issue I have with this video is making fun of small dicks, because it feeds into the mainstream stupid culture, and as a transphobic one, but I'll let it slide because the rest of this is stellar).



Join me in my fantasy
Some mainstream kind of industry
Where I am king and you're my slave
Basically distorted rave

Fear me, I am bad and scary
Hear my porn vocabulary
Random chords, arpeggios
Template drums in stereo

Teenage models strapped in corsets
Faking climax, showing skin
Generic, choleric, hysterical noise
Join the army of dirty, provocative boys

Lick my boots and call me master
I'm your leader, lord and pastor
Watch me grab some boobs for hire
Liar liar, tanks on fire

Itsy bitsy dritten Reich
Komputerkopf, Maschinenfleisch
Stöveltramp, iä fthagn,
Schadenfreude, Panzerwagen

Preset sounds, some filter sweep
Dress up like a little creep
Fittan, kuken, sprit å droger,
Hela Stockholm står i låger

Teenage models strapped in corsets
Faking climax, showing skin
Generic, choleric, hysterical noise
Join the army of dirty, provocative boys

Aber nur villeicht

I want to be your sex dictator
Another chronic masturbator
Style over substance any day
Who hears my lyrics anyway?

So, wah wah wah and random screams
Pictures from some wanker's dream
Anyone who disagrees
Filthy PC thought police!

Eins zwei drei und Stiefeltanz
Bewundere meine kleinen Schwanz
Hår av sladdar, latexporr
Söndersamplad tryckluftsborr

Teenage models strapped in corsets
Faking climax, showing skin
Generic, choleric, hysterical noise
Join the army of dirty, provocative

Fuckheads, posers, brain molesters
Impersonators, scene infesters
Who don't have the balls to stray from the norm
We're singing: Tits, cunt, boots, whip, small dick, uniform

Uniform!
Uniform!
Unicorn!
Uniform!

  1. Possibly the most absurd thing about this song is it is good enough that it has been in my head for days since posting this. Laugh.

    1. I just want to add some more funny stuff to this: From Strauss reading the Coilhouse-article and the idea arose, 'til he was completely finished with this song, it took two days. AND. Thomas Rainer posted the youtube-link on his personal facebook profile page saying "he really liked it", and so did NM:s fans! *mind blown by meta-meta irony*
