In 2004 "Moskau" became a surprise hit on the Internet due to the sharing of a performances of the song from the group's glory days. Blogging viewers of the video commented that the wild disco dances, retro instrumentation, and happy German vocals are hilarious and oddly uplifting. The song and its video have become an [[MemeticMutation internet fad]]. Today, Dschinghis Khan is in the middle of the Cirque du Dschinghis Khan Tour, which includes the group in its current incarnation: "The Legacy of Dschinghis Khan" and acts from other artists including Mongolian circus acts.

Added DiffLines:

* GratuitousSpanish: "Pistolero"- with more of it in the English version than the German. (There's also a version ''entirely'' in Spanish, that's not gratuitous.)

Added DiffLines:

* CompositeCharacter: "Loreley" gives its title character the backstory of the Clemens Brentano version of [[Myth/{{Lorelei}} the story]] (about a beautiful woman who has many pursuers but despairs at her inability to be with the man she actually loves), but rather than committing suicide, she takes on the EnthrallingSiren aspects of the Heinrich Heine version.

* SpiritualSuccessor : PowerMetal . Despite not beeing Metal, Dschingis Khan had all the [[BadAss badassery]], [[RatedMForManly manlyness]] and Trueness of ancient warriors in their lyrics and outfits, we would later find in PowerMetal. And yes, they even did it before {{Manowar}}.

* LongRunner: ''Over thirty years''. Most musical groups would sell their families for a run that long, even with the multiple lineup changes.

* "Hadschi Halef Omar" - A song that gets away with saying [[UsefulNotes/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.)
