Music Monday: Die Antwoord

Die Antwoord in the house today guys! I chose this song (Super Evil) out of all their songs because it's so darn catchy.

Here's what they look like. 

Photos from here and here.

As their website says, "For those who don't know yet, Die Antwoord are a futuristic rap-rave crew from South Africa who represent a fresh new style called Zef."

I love them and have been lucky enough to see them in concert in Vancouver, their first time in Canada. It was fucking awesome. Check this song out. 


And because I love them so much, and they're kind of's another song. NSFW!

This song actually talks about the story of"evil boy"'s not just a bunch of dick jokes, no matter how the video looks. Evil boy is from a Cape Town ghetto, and can't go back because he isn't circumcised.Watch this video first actually, Ninja explains it better than I could, and it's in his cool accent.

And here's the song that's gotten me through some boring walks home from the bus stop. (see if you catch the District 9 reference in the video) Even if you're not interested in the music, give the video a play. The "evil boy" story is interesting.

Die Antwoord might come off as kind of silly and a sort of novelty band at first, but I think you should give them a chance. They're actually from a real ghetto, they worked their way up from nothing, Ninja is like the fastest rapper I've ever heard in my life, and Yo-Landi is...something I've never seen before. I seriously love them!
