Münchener Freiheit

Stefan Zauner, Aron Strobel & Co. met in 1980 and named their project Münchener Freiheit, after a square and tube station in Munich's affluent quarter Schwabing. The remnant 'e' results from the band adapting the name before the city dropped it. They are also known as Freiheit, under which name the single and album releases in the English language were published.
First tries to lunch themselves into the German music landscape of the early 1980s were largely ignored, as other acts of the then dominating genre Neue Deutsche Welle (New German Wave) were fiercely competing for chart positions. Nena was one of them.
Their breakthrough came in 1985: Ohne Dich stormed up the charts and reached the top slot in Austria and Switzerland and managed to clmb to number 2 in their native Germany. Their style is a somewhat odd one, combining elements of the very perculiar Schlager with commercial pop. Although their last big hit was Liebe auf den Ersten Blick in 1992, the band remains very popular in Germany, often selling out big concert halls all over the country.
