Anti-Nazi punk song sees resurgence in migrant-friendly Germany

Germans are once again rocking out to a an anti-Nazi punk song that topped the country’s charts two decades ago, riding a wave of pro-migrant sentiment.

The ditty, “Cry for love” by die Artze, pokes fun at neo-Nazis for their supposed toughness, and first became popular in the mid-90s.

“Your violence is only a silent cry for love,
your combat boots long for tenderness,
you have never learned to articulate yourself,
and your parents never had time for you … ohhh… asshole,” the band sings.

According to the Washington Post, the song made a comeback after a music teacher encouraged people to download and play the song as a protest against anti-migrant right-wingers.
