Die Toten Hosen is a German punk band from Düsseldorf that has been highly successful in Germany since the 1980s.
The band’s name literally means “The Dead Pants/Trousers”. “Tote Hose” is a German expression meaning “nothing going on” or “boring”. Their name can figuratively be translated as “The Dead Beats”.
