A supernatural creature whose existence can not be demonstrated, but for which certain facts are nevertheless asserted (if it's invisible, how do you know it's pink?).
Apparently orginating on the alt.athiest usenet group as a way to either argue the existence of God with non-athiests without getting personal, or mock them relentlessly. Sometimes shortened to IPU.
We know the Invisible Pink Unicorn exists, because no matter how hard hard we look we can't see her.
A style of rock that originated in late 60s - early 70s Germany. Musically it seems to extol the machine (Kraftwerk being a leading example) or more commonly industrial decay (Can, Faust, Neu, Einsterzende Neubauten). Amon Duul II actually employed jackhammers in one stage show, to the horror of the concert hall management. Think of punk
crossed (however improbably) with prog rock
, sometimes with a funk
y groove underneath it all. Some people regard more ambient bands like Tangerine Dream and Popul Vuh as being part of Krautrock as well.
"What's that god-awful racket?"
"It's Krautrock, mom!"
