11 Unmissable Songs By Nina Hagen

11 Unmissable Songs By Nina Hagen
Nina Hagen is a not-so-classic classic German icon hailing from the east side of the wall, circa 1955. Perhaps it was the oppressive nature of the GDR that catapulted her subversive and innovative sound. Maybe it was the move to the seemingly boundless West after years on the other side in the 1970s that edified and furthered the unique musical maturation of the ‘Godmother of Punk.’ Regardless of the reason, Nina Hagen, Berlin-bred with international reach, is both a symbol and an artist who should be heard.
