“Germany Rocks” takes students through the pivotal moments in German history from the 1950’s to the present by introducing them to the rock, pop, and electronic music that were produced and consumed in the divided nation and beyond the Wall in reunified Germany.

How was rock music first received by the different generations in the 1950s and what did they make of it? How were the political protests of the 1960s expressed in music? What do German experimental rock, punk, and new wave in the 1970s and 1980s say about the German experience and our experiences of modern life? Why did David Hasselhoff perform for an audience of 500,000 at the celebration of the fall of the Wall? What is the techno connection between Detroit and Berlin and when and why did it develop? Students will encounter a wide variety of music and advance their language skills through careful study of song lyrics, reading about and researching the music’s history, and writing response papers and research explorations.
