* "Hadschi Halef Omar" - A song that gets away with saying [[TheProphetMuhammad Muhammad's]] name. (It's a homage to a fictional Muslim ''character'' -- namely, to Creator/KarlMay's probably most famous companion during his notional adventures in the Orient.)

Formed within just few months in 1979, Dschinghis Khan was the product of the disco boom and following on the heels of other German-produced bands such as Boney M, Arabesque, and Silver Convention. Their songs were based on historical people and places. The group was formed by music producer Ralph Siegel AKA Mr. Eurovision. Siegel was apparently obsessed with making the next Music/{{ABBA}}. Their name is the German spelling of "GenghisKhan," the name of the song they sang in their introductory performance in the Eurovision Song Contest. While they didn't win Eurovision, the group achieved great success in Europe, Russia, Israel, Australia, and Japan.

removing Five Man Band, a rigid trope on storytelling about team efforts resulting from contributions of highly stereotypical team members; the trope has nothing to do with musical ensembles;
* FiveManBand ** TheHero: Louis Hendrick Potgieter. The main dancer. ** TheLancer: Steve Bender. The most ubiquous member aside of Potgieter thanks to his BaldOfAwesome, [[TheComicallySerious Comically Serious]] attitude and charisma. ** TheBigGuy: Wolfgang Heichel. The youngest and more cheerful of the male core, plus quite tall too. Married to the {{Tomboy}} of the group. ** TheSmartGuy: Leslie MŠndoki. Apparently by default, but he also had a quite long career as a percussionist and producer. (And is also a SupremeChef to boot, according to TheOtherWiki.) ** TheChick / TheHeart: ''Both'' Henriette Heichel and Edina Pop. TomboyAndGirlyGirl duet: the first one is the tomboy and the latter is the girly girl. As plus, the {{Tomboy}} is married to TheBigGuy. *** They're even dressed like a Sentai team in their most famous performance. Hence the FanNickname "German Power Rangers".
