The Stripes were a German New Wave music ensemble with strong pop influence founded in Hagen, Germany, by Rainer Kitzman, who played guitar. The lead singer was Gabriele Kerner (Gabriele Susanne Kerner), before she became known as Nena Kerner, who would later form the band Nena. Another future member of the band Nena, Rolf Brendel (Nena's boyfriend at the time), played the drums. Frank Röhler played bass. The band was known for singing exclusively in English. They released four singles and one studio album, after which they split up in May 1982. Their song "Ecstasy" was a minor hit.
