Rio Reiser (9 January 1950 – 20 August 1996) was a German Rock musician and singer of Rock group Ton Steine Scherben. He was born Ralph Christian Möbius in Berlin and died at the age of 46 in Fresenhagen, Germany. Rio Reiser supported squatting in the early 1970s and later the green political party Die Grünen. After German reunification, he joined the Party of Democratic Socialism.

His first solo record-album was called Rio I. and included the popular song "König Von Deutschland" ("King of Germany"). The album was produced by Anette Humpe, a renowned German music producer who had already produced Reiser's very first solo single, "Dr. Sommer", some time ago when he was in need of cash and had asked her for support. The song "König von Deutschland" became one of the few real hits of Reiser, has been covered and cited by many artists ever since and is still known among most people in Germany.

Other hit singles of the first album included the love song "Für immer und dich" and the melancholic "Junimond". Reiser had great commercial success of his first album, and he released five further studio albums until his death, most of them highly praised by the critics.
