The Erste Allgemeine Verunsicherung (German for "First Public/General Un-Insurance") is an Austrian fun rock band formed in 1977. During their beginning, they were very poor, but then suddenly became very successful, even drawing kids and old people to their concerts - which surprised even them. True, many of their songs are very funny, but they also make songs about political topics, which are more an example of dry humor or sarcasm, and sometimes reference mature stuff. Band members often changed, but main texter Thomas Spitzer has remained. Had a crisis in the late Nineties, when several prominent members left the band, but recovered and is still around.

* BaitAndSwitch: Like here: "It was exactly three days after Johnny's return from Palermo! Glumly, the barrel of his gun shined in the flickering light of the neon lamp. 'This time, I'll get you!' Johnny cawed. Then he readied the gun, aimed precisely, and in ice-cold blood, pulled the trigger...\\Then he took the pink teddy bear he had won at the shooting booth, his girlfriend's hand, and they went to the cotton candy booth."
* BankRobbery: "Ba-Ba-Banküberfall". ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin.
