This song was written after legal trouble in Munich about a prostitution zone ("Sperrbezirk").

The song caused a lot of commotion all over Germany. During the second and third verse, a phone number is mentioned (32-16-8), which was posed as a highly popular sexual hotline. The band carefully proved that the phone number did not exist in Munich (where the band resided and the story of the song was set).

Too bad, the band did not expect: a. the song becoming a huge hit all over Germany, and b. people started dialing the number after hearing the song. The phone number did exist in other cities all over Germany, causing a lot of mayhem among people who were having the number. In one case, the telephone terror reached such an extent that the victim had the band charged for the costs that were involved when she changed her phone number.
