Life and Early Career

Catharina Hagen, better known as Nina Hagen, was born on March 11, 1955, in East Berlin, Germany. Her parents were both prominent figures in the East German cultural scene. Her mother, Eva-Maria Hagen, was a well-known actress, while her father, Hans Oliva-Hagen, was a scriptwriter and film director.

Hagen began her music career in the early 1970s as a member of the band Automobil. However, she gained widespread recognition after joining the band Fritzens Dampferband in 1974. The band was known for its avant-garde style, and Hagen's powerful vocals and theatrical stage presence quickly made her a fan favorite.

In 1976, Hagen left Fritzens Dampferband and formed her own band, which became known as Nina Hagen Band. The band's self-titled debut album, released in 1978, was a critical and commercial success, with Hagen's unique vocal style and eclectic blend of punk, new wave, and reggae music earning her widespread acclaim.

Her second album, "Unbehagen," released in 1979, featured the hit single "African Reggae," which became a signature song for Hagen. The album also included the track "Auf'm Bahnhof Zoo," which addressed the issue of drug addiction and prostitution in Berlin.

Hagen's third album, "NunSexMonkRock," released in 1982, was a critical and commercial success. The album featured Hagen's trademark vocals, which ranged from operatic to punk, and included the hit single "New York New York," which combined elements of rock and electronic music. The album also included the track "My Way," a cover of the Frank Sinatra classic, which Hagen transformed into a punk anthem.

Hagen's music has always been characterized by her unique voice and her willingness to experiment with different musical styles. Her lyrics often address social and political issues, and she has been a vocal advocate for human rights, feminism, and environmentalism throughout her career.

She was a pioneer of punk and new wave music in Germany, and her eclectic style and powerful vocals have inspired countless artists in the years since.
