Where does the term pants come from?

  • Hey guys, have a question, I actually know my way around the Toten Hosen !!! But why are they called Toten Hosen-Toten Hosen ??? Because I've always asked myself that! Would be cool if you would help me with it !!!

    thanks

  • So if I am not mistaken, you have looked for a name that should be in ironic contrast to your music, because the expression "dead pants" rather promises boredom.

  • No, they had a concert in 1982, with hardly any spectators, when one of the Hosen said, this is Tote Hose and that's how the name came about.

  • I think it was already here somewhere, but since I can't find the link at the moment, I can summarize it again briefly.

    So they called themselves Die Toten Hosen on their first appearance because they didn't know how the music would be received by the audience and if it had been a failure no one could have blamed them - then the name would have been program. The whole thing didn't quite work out because they were announced as Die Toten Hasen because of the dissolute writing, but the music was so well received that they kept the name.

    I'm looking for the thread again. If I have it, do it an edit.

    The mouth of the righteous shall speak wisdom, and his tongue shall speak judgment.
    Blessed be the one who resists temptation.
    For if he has been tried, he shall receive the crown of life.
    Lord, divine fire, have mercy!
    Oh how holy, how sublime, how gracious, how loving
    Oh lily of purity
