Die Toten Hosen is one of the most beloved German punk bands. The Düsseldorf Five are mainly influenced by punk bands from the 1970s that they frequently pay tribute to in recorded work and live performances. On occasion, they have played songs by the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. For the most part, The Toten Hosen have not departed substantially from their original style of music, choosing power chords, straightforward lyrics, simple melodies and anthem-like choruses over long instrumental solos. Other influences on the music of Die Toten Hosen include: hardcore punk, punk blues, heavy metal, trash metal, and hard rock. The Noches Como Estas release presents the pure magnetic force behind its chart breaking singles as “Hier Kommt Alex”, “Du Lebst Nur Einmal”, “Vida Desesperada” and “Bonnie and Clyde” as the exalted audience is singing the words of every song.
