Punctuation and syntax are very important, and when drafting this post we made some serious errors. Our original headline “Stefan Raab’s Dick’s on Fire because of Lena” suggested that she gave him a sexually transmitted infection. That was totally incorrect. Their mentor-protégé relationship, which began at Eurovision 2010, remains platonic and no one needs to pick up any antibiotics from their doc.

What we meant to say is that Dicks on Fire, the rock band fronted by Stefan Raab, has unveiled a new song called “Revolution” which features Lena. They debuted the song yesterday at the TV Total Stock Car Crash Challenge at the Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen, and it has already cracked the Top 40 on German iTunes.

We don’t understand what the Germans are thinking.The song is incredibly mediocre. It isn’t catchy. And the lyrics, which you can read below, don’t make much sense, as with this doozey: “Bring home the news like a bottle of booze.” We’re not really sure what that means.

Mr Raab owes Lena a big wet kiss: she’s the only redeeming feature of the performance below. It’s not just because she dances around on an elevated cage wearing Yoko Ono glasses. Lena’s voice is rich and silky and dripping with sex appeal. She’s matured a lot since winning ESC, and we completely understand why she was recently cast in a commercial for doosh shower fixtures. Lena has star quality, y’all.

What do you think of the song and performance?

Stefan Raab is Germany’s TV mastermind. There is hardly anything he does that does not become successful. The “Dicks on Fire” is a fun project of Raab. The song originally was written for a commercial which promoted a shower head he invented (at amazon it went straight to no.1 in home appliances).

Hidden behind a paperscreen for 2/3 of the song. This is ridiculously offensive. 🙁

This is like something out of the Inbetweeners … what self respecting person would call their band Dicks on Fire? And it’s not a spoof, they appear to be taking it so serious … very sad indeed 🙁
