* EroticEating: "The Banana". Leads to a in-universe DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything for the singer which turns him into a horny wreck, which makes the girlfriend run off.

Formed in 1982, they broke up briefly in 1989, reuniting in 1993. They have released 13 studio albums, six live albums and seven compilations until now, and managing to get three of all of them [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federal_Department_for_Media_Harmful_to_Young_Persons indexed]] in Germany. Farin and Bela are for all intents and purposes the face of the band but their current base player (the third in band history and with them since 1993) also sings a handful of songs and has written a couple, usually one or two per LP. Previous base players have been even more marginal to the band with their second base player never even officially being part of the band (Their second base player was featured in the manner of "Die Ärzter with..." or similar ways). Bela and Farin are both from Berlin whereas Rod was born in Chile and came to Germany because his parents ran afoul of the Pinochet regime. Die ärzte are famous/notorious for their elaborate three hour live shows that include antics like giving encores at festivals and spending most of the time bickering at each other in puerile humor and heavy Berliner dialect. There is even one semi-official release of just the things they said on live concerts that weren't their songs. Improvising changed lyrics to their songs is also a thing they like to do.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: How in the name of all [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saumagen Palatinate Saumagen]] did they get away with a song about how the federal chancellor Helmut Kohl hits his wife?! Germany has laws against libel, too!

** "Mein Baby war beim Friseur": They correctly speculated that the often mentioned "German Federal Department for Media Harmful to Young Persons" had no idea what "fisting" means.

* SubvertedRhymeEveryOccasion: "Sweet Sweet Gwendoline". Approximate translation with some grammatic liberty (and think of Gwendoline in heavy bondage, like her namesake): "One could now mail in a postal truck her, one could also easily...YEEEEEEES!" You get the idea.

* AllMenArePerverts: Parodied in "Männer sind Schweine". The song starts with calling them the "usual" pejorative terms; pigs, rats, etc., but by the end it's the nonsensical "men are cars."

** "Men are cars" references phrases that are/were frequently graffitied on the walls of toilet stalls and the likes. The full phrase is "Männer sind Autos, wenn man nicht aufpasst, liegt man unter ihnen" ("Men are cars, if you don't pay attention you'll end up under them").
