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.
All Girls Want Bad Boys: In "Oh Bio Mio", the singer falls in love with a Granola Girl, changes his way of living for her, but at the end she falls for a rich guy who is as far from this lifestyle as possible.
Bait and Switch: 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."
Disproportionate Retribution: A Turk gets cheated at an imbiss stand, when there is no meat in his kebap. So he buys Souflaki from the next Greek instead. What does the kebap maker do? Impale him with a kebap spit.
Last Disrespects: With an Undead Narrator. His relatives "have a calculator instead of a bible in the hand, to divide up the heritage", but he gets the last laugh: He wasted his fortune before he died, and just left them his cognac, which they'll need.
Line-of-Sight Name: The band is named after the Austrian insurance company "Erste Allgemeine Versicherung". They had the idea when they drove along a building of said insurance.
Misplaced Wildlife: Africa in the song "Tarzan & Jane" has coyotes, orang-utans and beavers.
Refuge in Audacity: One song about a drunkard who vomits while in a cab and then asks the driver whether the alcohol stench is coming from him.
Sex Tourism: Male version in "Samurai", female in "Jambo".
Shaggy Dog Story: "Die Geschichte". All a build-up for a sheer unbelievable story that the singer barely survived, it seems. But later: "Only idiots listen until the end!" But if you didn't understand it, press rewind, stop and start...
