Volxsturm - Bi uns to hus...

Band/artist - Volxsturm
Genre(s) - Oi!
Origin - Germany
Album - Bi uns to Hus
Year of release - 2002

In Germany, where they play a lot of oi!, there are quite a lot of oi! bands and many of them are German. Therefore, I present you with Volxsturm, a German oi! band. I know the name sounds conspicious but y'all know I'd never post nazi music, at least not if you can actually decipher the lyrics. The band's a bit more hardline in music and attitude than Vier Promille was, but have an excellent ear for the catchier riffs and shout-along moments. Songs that are particularly cool are Heimat (the version by Broilers on their split is even more awesome), the title track, Geht Vorbei, and the skatastic Mir geht's gut.
The genre (and skinhead subculture) is burdened with a reputation of being angry but this is undeserved; a lot of oi! is really fun-loving music and hey, skins are people too. :)
