Ladyboy

Album: Skills in Pills (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • Lindemann is a duo comprising lead vocalist Till Lindemann of German group Rammstein, and multi-instrumentalist Peter Tägtgren of Swedish death metal band Hypocrisy and industrial metal project PAIN. This was the first song written by the duo. Tägtgren recalled to Rocksverige.se: "That song comes from Till´s lyrics and he was feeding me with ideas of what could fit to these lyrics he had. He kinda said 'Could you make a song that sounds a little bit like this or that?' That´s how we started it."

    "I did the song and I gave it to him and a couple of weeks later he sent me back the vocals he did for it and I was like "Holy s--t, we´ve got something here!"
