Active since 1984, KMFDM are pioneers in the crossover between Techno/Dance/EBM electronics and heavy metal guitar samples. Born in Germany but then relocated to the USA, KMFDM released their first demo tape in 1984 and the first album "What Do You Know Deutschland?" in 1986. Heads of the band were Sascha Konietzko and En Esch. In 2000, the band changed to name into MDFMK and tried a contract with a major company. In 2002 they were back as KMFDM without En Esch.

Rumour has it that KMFDM stands for "Kill Mother Fuckin' Depeche Mode", "Keep Madonna From Doing Music" or "Kylie Minogue Fans Don't Masturbate", but in fact it is an acronym for the nonsensical and grammatically incorrect German phrase "Kein Mehrheit Für Die Mitleid" (actually kind of a grammatical play upon words juggling with definite articles). This term can only be loosely translated into English as "No Majority For Pity" but then loses much of its irony. Thus the grammatically correct phrase "Kein Mitleid Für die Mehrheit" ("No Pity For The Majority") has emerged and is now in common use, even officially. The band now just deals with "Kein Mitleid für die Mehrheit"/"No Pity For The Majority" to avoid being asked stupid questions about what "KMFDM" means for the rest of their lives.

The best band in the world period. This band sums up my life and I have listened to them the most out of any other band throughout the span of 11 years. To sum up what this band means to me would result in a full blown book being written so I'll just make it short and sweet.

Over 30 years, and still going strong it seems.


Kein Mitleid Fur Die Mehrheit!


Purveyors of the ultra heavy beat, and impressively going for 30 years in various incarnations with the one consistant factor that is captain k ( Sascha Konietzko ) who's vocal stylings are integral to the bands sound, there have been some notable high points (angst is a high water mark and is still hard and heavy after 20 years) & more influential than they are given credit for, other than the first 3 albums which are them finding their feet musically, every album is a worthwhile purchase, to quote the band "KMFDM will Never Stop"


KMFDM is a Damn Good band!
Been one of my 'all-time-favourites' for years and the Mortal Kombat theme they did was Gold!!
Keep doing the good stuff! ^_^


wow, no comment here yet! This is really a pleasure, for KMFDM is definately the most influental, native german (Industrial) Rock Group ever! For they brought me closer to electronic, experimental Rythms than any other act did! This is absolutely the biggest musical Influence in my life.
What did they not use in their tunes? If you only have a look at "VIRUS". This was the most weird mix of raggae and rock. I mean that freaky kind of style back in the late 80th, when there was no crossover at all! I am really thankfull to own nearly all albums. Without exaggeration I would mean that KMFDM did the same to modern alternative music than Pink Floyd did it back in 60th/70th.
