Greek: "All 3 of their albums were in the Top 10 in my country!"
American: "Most fans are learning German because of them!"
German: "They are so hot! Tokio Hotel für immer!"
Are hot and absolutely NOTHING like my chemical romance. Bill does NOT look like a girl. And the whole band do not wear make-up, only one of them does as every one with eyes can clearly see.
Even if you don't think they are absolutely irrisistably gorgeous, you can't possibly say their songs aren't good, they are.
And they aren't emo, they don't claim to be emo and no one else claims they are either.
If you hate them so much, why bother coming on here and defining them.
Tokio Hotel are the shizz. Tom Kaulitz is the sex.
Interational rock with insanely awesome hair and unique styles. The band includes, Bill Kaulitz lead singer and his twin brother Tom Kaulitz, the lead guitarist, Gustav Shafer as drummer and Georg Listing as basiest. The band founded in 2001 as the Kaulitz twins were only 11 years old after a live show in their hometown, Magdeburg Germany when Georg and Gustav watched The Kaulitzs perform on stage, although they knew each other from a music school that the Kaulitzs parents owned. Together they formed a band called, Devilish and performed in small concerts. in 2003, Bill Kaulitz participated in German Star Search, performing It's Raining Men, as a 13 year old and lost in quarter final, but was discovered by a music producer by the name of Peter Hoffman. Soon, the band changed their name from Devilish, to Tokio Hotel. "tokio" because they loved Toyko, Japan. And "hotel", because they seemed to always be in one. Sony BMG took over the contract and Hoffman hired David Jost and Pat Jenzer as creators and authors and gave the band instruction on music playing and song writing. Shortly before their first album, Song terminated their contract and Universal Music Group took them under contract and now the band is the most well knowned act in 20 years.
Their first album,
Schrei was released in 2005 on Septumber 19th and later won platinum certification. and recorded when the Kaulitz twins were only 13 to 15 years old. Thier first single, "Durch Den Monsun (Through the Monsoon)...
A band formed in Germany. They are the biggest thing out of Germany in the last 20 years! They are exceptionally talented. The band members are Bill Kaulitz (lead singer), Tom Kaulitz (guitarist), Georg Listing (bass guitarist) and Gustav (drums).
They have just released their first english album in May. They sound the excat same in concert as they do on their CDs, which is amazing! They all care for their fans, and write meaningful lyrics. Tokio Hotel was even able to play a concert in France to 500,000 people infront of the Eiffel Tower!
And most girls who see any of the band members want to die, faint, scream, cry, glow with happiness, or want to marry them.
