It's sad to witness the decline in Scooters quality. I originally found out about them through a school friend back in 2001, so was very much introduced during the second chapter, but also went back to the origins and found some hidden gems like the legendary Rhapsody In E.

The second chapter was great. A lot of high quality instrumentals and even entire albums such as Back To The Heavyweight Jam and We Bring The Noise! I believe the group perfected their sound at this point in their career.

The third chapter was a curious one, and continued some of the Trance that Rick and Axel brought forward some years earlier. But for whatever reason, I bought The Stadium Techno Experience when it was new and sort of dropped off for a while to discover more Trance. I returned to Mind The Gap in recent years and was pleasantly surprised by Trance-Atlantic and Trip To Nowhere. The only album left that I want is, seemingly appropriately titled, Who Has The Last Laugh Now? A polarizing album, with some indicating the start in their decline, but I like what I hear.

The departure of Jay and introduction of Michael brought in some decent tracks, and a lot of Jumpstyle. There aren't really any consistent albums in this era, in my opinion, but some noteworthy tracks (The Sound Above My Hair, The Question Is What Is The Question, Love Is An Ocean, Metropolis).

I realise Scooter have always been a commercial dance group, but the way the industry turned clearly affected what they put out, as any longtime fans have observed. Personally, I feel the final nail in the coffin was the departure of Rick. HP is still shouting over the singles, but it's not the same.

A lot can be said for Scooter but the fact is that while other artists and bands do not exist anymore they are still on the case as HP Baxxter says. Sure their last works are not even close to good and this is my opinion and you can check my reviews in general to fnd out how i review. For me the downfall started with Who's got the last lough now, they had 3 decent albums from 2007 to 2009 and then chaos. FULL commercial staff without energy, rhythm and creativity. Sure there are minor exceptions, but the whole thing is at least tasteless. What we must not forget is that music nowadays is like this. So in order to maintain a status and a continuity they had to move along with the music industry. Some people like it, some not. I definitely not, since i grew up in the 90's and i f you have listened to RMB, Westbam, Ramirez and Scooter's early staff, understand. I'm not here to judge Scooter or anybody else, besides music is all about what you like to hear. For a Scooter fun i stopped buying their albums and singles in 2009 and that only says a lot

Scooter is among the most terrible music ever made. It is just awful.

They have ripped countless songs but they've done it properly. Love them!

Scooter essentially ripped off a band called Ultra-sonic from Scotland. Apparently one of the members of Scooter worked at the label which licensed Ultra-sonic's breakthrough European hit "Annihilating Rhythm". If you listen to Ultra-sonic, who had been using the "live" sound in their tracks since their inception you can hear where Scooter got this idea from. Even the title of their first release, "Hyper Hyper" blatantly rips off a lyric used by Mallorca Lee in "Annihilating Rhythm".

For me, these guys are gods of the EDM scene. Every single album they have released is top-notch, with absolutely no exception. Whatever style they have chosen – pure hardcore, happy hardcore, trance, hard trance, techno, jumpstyle, hardstyle, dubstep, or house – they have always been able to make terrific stuff, which is hard to forget or ignore.

Quit the nonsense, folks. If Scooter’s music doesn’t satisfy your tastes, it is not necessarily “cheesy,” “crappy,” or “badly produced.” To begin with, I see nothing wrong with the way their music is crafted. I also have no problem with a commercially driven sound. Commercially successful artists often bring us the most memorable tunes, and artists who never experiment with new styles probably lack something. Jumpstyle, dubstep, and electro are no more crappy and no less “ravey” than techno or hardcore – if you think otherwise, it’s your problem, not Scooter’s. As for the lyrics, the worst offenders of the English language seem to come from the Anglo-Saxon world – check out the “What’s the worst song lyric ever?” page on Finally, I don’t think Scooter’s “stadium techno” is any more defiling to the 303 than gabber, which often sounds to me like an attack of giant man-eating spiders on a quiet and unsuspecting American town. In short, there is nothing about Scooter that disgraces the club’n’dance movement.

Even if HP & the crew have some weak points – no one is perfect – their strong points outweigh. They have made the harder styles of dance music accessible and appealing to the uninitiated. They are responsible for some of the strongest tunes in the history of the dance genre. And they are incredible fun makers. When you need to shake off the garbage of everyday life, few things can be better than hearing something like this out of your player: “Three men in a boat with four cigarettes / And no matches / How do they manage to smoke?”

Forget about the good ol’ Scooter. We can’t be stuck in their happy hardcore forever. All things are in a flux. We change, and so do artists. I happen to like the way Scooter’s style has changed, and I enjoy their most recent albums even more than I do their previous ones. These guys are living proof that groovy, tasty, and captivating dance music has not gone with the ’90s. Give Scooter a second, a third, a fourth listen, and I hope you will see that their new sound is as good as their old one, that they are still the greatest, and that the rave goes on.

I think, Scooter is an excellent band, some call them the most succesful band of Germany... I really liked them, especially the first and second chapter... in the so called 3rd chapter, where Jay Frog was in the band, well... for me then they started to superannuate from the music business... but there were 2 albums (from 2003 and 2005) which ones are a "not bad" category for me, but not the favourites, like earlier... ok, i bought them, because i was a fan... and inbetween there was an album from 2004, on which i liked only 2 or 3 tracks, so it wasn't worth for me buying it... and then many things happened... Jay left the band, Michael came, the music business has changed a lot, trance and dance vanished, jumpstyle came in, and then electro, and now dubstep... and i understand them! They had to follow the trend if they want to keep themselves alive in the music business, but i think they aren't any special like before; they were famous for copying okay, but not for following other trends; they MADE new trends! It's sad, earlier they were my favourite group/artists and now i can't stand their music (like david doesn't eat for example... 4 AM is better, but still not what they really got, and the woman's voice is quite mediocre...) However, their newest track at the time, Army Of Hardcore, is quite listenable and enjoyable, but still not what i play for hours on repeat! Oh and something else, but that goes for the whole music business... How do labels expect getting money if they only publish mp3's and wav's on itunes?! -.- Okay, there are lots of pirates... But for example Scooter... the fans buy the newest maxies and albums without listening, and the limited editions, because that's a must for their collection... I don't know how they expect the people buying for tracks on itunes (which are only the tracks which you can't touch in an way...), people can easily get it for free from elsewhere... we are living in 2012! And if there's nothing touchable, for ex. CD-case, people won't buy it... Maybe the very-very rich, who don't want to f*ck around with searching the web, just go to itunes... That's a very bad step of labels and the whole music biz, i think!

Now this is odd, everyone is always going on about how good their happy hardcore-stuff was, whereas the productions done between 1998 and 2006 are just so much better in my opnion. Even now, if you would hear back a tune like 'Ramp!', or 'Nessaja', it would sound fresh and very well-produced. These tracks combine dark percussion, fx, and heavy offbeat basslines, very much like the style of Hennes & Cold, with over the top, but fun to listen to, melodies and vocal hooklines. This combination has set the standard for modern handz up trance, of which about 90% is still inferior to these old Scooter-tracks from the early 2000's. And over time, the producers of these tunes (Axel Coon, and afterwards Jay Frog) have proven to be succesful in their own right, also with more serious hard trance and trance productions, as well as house and electro.

While you can't exactly call them either original or serious artists, Scooter manage to pump out album after album of high quality club techno. This is party music, and it's all made for the sake of fun. They filter the entire music world through an electronic club filter and therefore not only make it more fun to listen to on a party, but also more fun to dance to. Scooter is all about having fun and losing control, and that's what it's all about. Posse, we need you on the floor!
