They are german/austrian bands, but they sing english, so I guess they do not qualify. But I like a lot of Kontrust (e.g. Bomba, Butterfly Defect, Adrenalina, Falling, Monkey Boy, Zero,... pretty much the whole album Secon Hand Wonderland).

As I said, they are not english bands, but everything they sing is in english.

Oh hey, Die Prinzen. Really liked their music a lot when I was young.

Probably their biggest hit was this one, "Alles Nur Geklaut", meaning "Everything stolen" (in the sense of copied, plagiarized).

Anybody recognized all the video clips it's referencing?

And for the 30th anniversary:

And if you like a metal cover:

Fitting for them, since most of their songs and especially their hits are coversongs...
