''Wir sind Helden'' (German for "We are heroes") is a German AlternativeRock band. They're largely responsible for bringing rock sung in German back into the mainstream of Germany. In doing so, they created a new style generally dubbed ''Neue Neue Deutsche Welle'' (the "New New German Wave", after the movement of the 80s).
[[AC:The band consists of:]]
* '''Judith Holofernes''', lead singer and guitar
* '''Pola Roy''', drums
* '''Mark Tavassol''', bass and guitar
* '''Jean-Michel Tourette''', guitar and keyboard
* '''''Die Reklamation''''' (2003)
* '''''Von hier an blind''''' (2005)
* '''''Soundso''''' (2007)
* '''''Bring mich nach Hause''''' (2010)
As the band sings almost only in German, they aren't very well known outside the German-speaking regions of Europe. In addition to that, their lyrics are usually a HurricaneOfPuns, and thus a lot would get LostInTranslation.
!! ''Wir sind Helden'' provides examples of:
