Yep, a truly international site and no one over there is offended by the term Krautrock. It is embraced and highly visible as a genre.

And having some German heritage, it does not bother me one bit.

Political correctness of some things stops at the border and is used to intimidate those within those borders by creating a group think that it should be offensive to everyone, everywhere.

Rock on ! or Wir fahr'n fahr'n fahr'n auf der Autobahn ! I do have the album on vinyl btw.

But this is probably my favorite only because it is one of my favorite songs anyway and my favorite version of many ...

 

Yeah, for me Kurt the term didn't bug me because I thought it wasn't "PC"  - I don't really care much about what's "PC or not".  When I first started hearing and reading that term it just seemed more dismissive and "pigeon-holing" - as if  all the artists were doing the same thing and all sounded the same - which they do not of course.  Apparently several artists didn't care for the term.  It's an interesting coincidence that you brought up Kraftwerk - I was just listening to them a couple of days ago - Autobahn and Trans-Europa Express.

Yes.. that one spent a whole long time among the Top Ten of the time, nationally and even internationally, so it was most successful and even made it into mainstream music.

Here's Frumpy with Morning, from their 1970 album All Will Be Changed:

Frumpy - German Progressive Rock band, founded in 1970 by Inga Rumpf (voc), Jean-Jacques Kravetz (keyb), Carsten Bohn (d), and Karl-Heinz Schott (b), 1971 backed-up by Rainer Baumann (g).

In this thread, I intend to post some Kraut-Rock which I like and still listen to. Your inputs are very welcome.
Here's one from 1972 most of you probably know, since Bill has been playing it (or so me thinks). The title is Spoon by the band CAN (ringing some bells at the time):
 

That term always bugged me a little (it seemed like a denigration of German musicians by British music critics?), but as far as I could tell you are German and the term is not offensive to you, so, whatever.  Anyhow, I like much of that genre of music as well.
 

No offense taken here anyways since the term applies to a whole genre in rock music I find heavily under-explored by the public, and WWII was long ago (thank God). 

And... guess what, the song Heroes by David Bowie is also considered to belong in that genre (he lived in West-Berlin during the mid-1970s). Not quite sure, who's responsible for this labelling... 

An overview of Krautrock in Discogs shows a whole lot more than I am allowing myself to post here for now. Kraurock embodies a huge vault. 

Yikes.

Never knew them, until today. I stuck with local bands, and the screechingly popular ones, I guess. 
 
One record apparently. They were from Bad Homburg/Frankfurt area. Makes sense. 
It was just another day in my music memory but for kicking it at the Buster's Workshop with the elephants big teeth

Sweet Smoke - Baby Night from the album Just A Poke (1970):
They were originally formed in Brooklyn, New York in 1967, although the band moved to live as a commune in Germany. In Discogs, they're not listed under Krautrock, although folks here consider them to be. Bias on or off, great, great music!

Eloy - Mutiny (Live 1978):
Eloy - German progressive rock band formed in Hannover in 1969. They took their name from H.G. Wells' "The Time Machine", and sci-fi elements feature in much of their music, particularly the mid-to-late 1970's concept albums.
In their early days Eloy played a heavy rock, at first influenced by British bands like Deep Purple or Uriah Heep, and then increasingly took on influences from Pink Floyd, mixed in with what became the distinctive Eloy sound.
Eloy (due to many line-up changes) became the project of front man Frank Bornemann, and basically four different bands during their history. Eloy went on to be one of the most internationally successful of German progressive rock bands born out of the Krautrock era.

Novalis - Inside Of Me, from the album Banished Bridge (1973):

Novalis - German Progressive Rock band from Hamburg, formed in late-1971 and active through to the mid-1980's.
Novalis took their name from the nom-de-plume of the 18th Century poet Karl Friedrich Von Hardenberg. In their early days, Novalis started with a repertoire of King Crimson and Pink Floyd numbers, and moved-on from there, debuting with "Banished Bridge" a majestic prog-rock album featuring Mellotron and English vocals.

Alex Oriental Experience...



In Germany, Holger Czukay, Jaki Liebezeit und Irmin Schmidt of the Kraut-Rock group Can produced Alex Wiska's first two solo albums in 1972 and 1973. From 1976 to 1980, AlexWiska played numerous solo gigs with baglama (turkish string instrument) and rhythm-machine, opening for Frank Zappa and Bad Company. In 1980, he founded his own band, Alex Oriental Experience, together with Manni von Bohr and Horst Stachelhaus. Until 1998 they released 13 albums on his own label, Wiska Records. ~ (Translated from German Wikipedia)

Alex built his own electrified baglama as a 'stick' to make it's sound more rocking:

Birth Control with their international hit Gamma Ray from the 1972 album Hoodoo Man:


Birth Control
- Amongst the longest running bands of German rock, Birth Control were formed way back in 1968 in Berlin. They chose their rather controversial name as a stab at Pope Paul's anti birth control policy.

This track is from the album Monster Movie (1969), You Doo Right:
