[[LongRunners 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.

* LongRunner: They have been around (with one short break) for now 30 years. They just released the album ''Auch.''

* SlidingScaleOfSillinessVersusSeriousness: Usually firmly on the silly side in both their lyrics and their own stage behavior (including most interviews) they do on occasion make important points with a straight face (e.g. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kRrP-bZvD2s Deine Schuld]] or [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yh8ufcjoctA Schrei nach Liebe]] have no silliness to be found and make important points about political activism and fascism respectively). The latter sometimes throws off and surprises casual observers.

* LeadBassist: Type A. Rod is the only member of the band that can read and write sheet music. Even Farin says he can play the Guitar better than himself.

* LeadBassist: Type A. Rod is the only member of the band that can read and write sheet music. Even Farin says he can play the Guitar better than himself. Though both in terms of lyrics and melody output and in terms of on stage antics Bela and Farin are clearly the "faces" of the band and Rod more of a background guy. Which does not mean he does not write and sing a song once in a while, or get in jibes during their stage antics.

* [[SharpDressedMan Nice Suit]]: Has become the favoured stage outfit of Farin ever since going solo. Bela is also quite into this.
