Rumours have followed them for quite some time. Now German band Eskimo Callboy have officially announced their application to Germany’s national selection in 2022. 

The band shared the news on their social media platforms. They also published a video on Youtube called “Eskimo Callboy for Germany”. In the video, Kevin and Nico, two of the six members, discuss a comment under one of their songs fantasizing of Eskimo Callboy representing Germany at Eurovision. And now this comment may become a reality.

This announcement has already attracted a lot of attention. The video is currently trending at number 4 in Germany. The comments section is full of encouragement for the band. Even Eurovision 2021 act Blind Channel sent an endorsement, writing on Facebook, “Good luck guys!!” The band already have a hashtag for their mission: #EC4ESC.

Will Eskimo Callboy sing “Pump It”?

While there is no mention of which song they applied for Eurovision with, things point towards their latest release “Pump It”. The song plays a dominant role in their application video. Also, the song was released on December 3rd and is just under three minutes long – both necessary to eventually take it to Eurovision.

“Pump It” has attracted nearly 2 million views on YouTube less than a week after release. It’s also drawn 900,000 streams on Spotify thus far.

Who are Eskimo Callboy?

The band came together in 2010 in the city of Castrop-Rauxel in western Germany. In 2020, singer Sebastian “Sushi” Biesler left the band and was replaced by Nico Sallach. The most familiar face may be drummer David Friedrich, who took part in the German editions of The Bachelorette and I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here

Eskimo Callboy describe themselves as follows: “With freshly styled mullets and moustaches, the guys put the pedal to the metal and celebrate a colorful metalcore party. This is funfair, this is cotton candy, this is roller coaster – great ride here, be there!”

Their most successful songs include “Hypa Hypa” and “We Got The Moves”, released in 2020 and 2021 respectively. Both songs achieved streams in the multi-millions and in terms of views on major platforms. Despite the band being over ten years old, they have never been more successful commercially. And now they want to continue that road of success with Eurovision.

2022 is set to be a busy year for them regardless of Eurovision. They will be touring Europe at the beginning of the year, with many shows already sold out. They’ll tour Russia in April before moving on to France in September. Fortunately, May seems pretty empty in their schedule…so far.

The deadline to submit songs to the German broadcaster was on November 30th. So far, Eskimo Callboy are only the second act to publicly announce their participation. The first act was entertainer Ikke Hüftgold a few weeks ago. A jury will now determine which five acts will face off in a public-vote showdown sometime during March.

What do you think about Eskimo Callboy? Do you like their song “Pump It”? Tell us in the comments below!

Editor’s note: The band has previously stated that their name is not meant to offend anyone. But it will no doubt offend many who remember the derogatory connotations of the word “Eskimo”. As explained on the Alaska Native Language Center web site, the word Eskimo was “commonly used in Alaska to refer to Inuit and Yupik people of the world.” However, “this usage is now considered unacceptable by many or even most Alaska Natives, largely since it is a colonial name imposed by non-Indigenous people.”

In recent years there has been a strong movement away from using the word. For instance, in 2020 the Peters ice cream brand renamed its Eskimo Pie product as “Polar Pie” to, in its words, help achieve “racial equality”.

some thoughts about EC from a german true ESC fan since the early seventies! …not in germany anymore – in early german descriptions (after the PC wave) the word “eskimo” means “raw meat eater”, but in more recent science we also have a term called “schneeschuhflechter”, which has to do with this special shoes you need to cross high areas of fresh snow. the term “eskimo” is above inuit ect. because it is a term for all people who come from the far north! the ESC is a music (battle) between all peoples/countries all over europe and beyond! is there… Read more »

The term is offensive and should not be used. It’s that straightforward.

But if the slur in the name or the homophobic or misogynistic or racist lyrics still aren’t enough, how about their association with a “revenge p-rn” site for which they wrote the song Is Anyone Up? One glance at those lyrics, which are not reproducible here, confirms this is not an act that should be representing Germany. And this is not a song they’ve run from over the years; they played it regularly on their 2019 tour.

This article pretty much sums up why you’re wrong about the meaning of that word and why that we shouldn’t be using it.
Also, it’s not about being woke, it’s about having decency and respect to the people who don’t want to be referred to a slur by non-natives.

Your reply reeks of ignorance so I’m going to list it down for you:
A) You using your language or saying you’re an “Old-School boy” doesn’t justify you using it.
B) When a certain people group tells you not to use the term, you don’t use the term. End of story!
C) It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know what the Inuits meant by the term Inuits.
D) It doesn’t take too much to educate and correct yourself.
E) Again, it’s not about being woke it’s about having decency and respect.

As SOON as an artist who has used homophobic and racial slurs in their songs like this one is revealed, this community is immediately in love. But the moment anyone outwardly gay or anyone who is a drag queen even dares to try out for Eurovision, the downvotes start pouring in. And the moment anybody celebrating their blackness (see Jeangu using Sranan Tongo), this community starts making fun of their language.

  • Didn’t even notice the homophobic and racial slurs in “Pump It”. Even if I did notice, those slurs wouldn’t be the reason for me to like the song.

@Brötchen made a really good comparison: Eskimo Callboy is like the metal version of Little Big. And I am all in for it. If “Pump It” was 100% screaming, I would’ve disliked it, but the proportion between singing and screaming is so well done that I just can’t dislike it.

Eskimo Callboy might look like a joke act, but I think this could do very well. Hopefully, Eskimo Callboy will be able to participate with “Pump It”.

Given that they’re moving forward with searching for a new name and addressing those mistakes in previous lyrics, making official statements on their social media platforms, I’d say it’s a positive change and an example for other groups to learn from.

i think a similar band was approached in Austria (don’\t remember their name), apparently they are huge and their manager was positive but they rejected Eurovision.
