Extrabreit is a German band established in Hagen, Germany in 1978. The band was one of the most successful exponents of the Neue Deutsche Welle movement of the 1980s. The band was founded around the end of 1978, when they began their career as part of the Neue Deutsche Welle. Their music is not typical of the NDW genre. It was influenced heavily by western rock music, and their lyrics were often critical of politics and society. The members viewed themselves as punks, whose only association with the NDW was the fact that they appeared at the same time. As testament to that they wrote on their Homepage: "Ja wir haben den Scheiß eben mitgemacht!" (Yeah, we went along with that shit). wikipedia Youtube preview included.
