Helge and the Firefuckers was a band project by the German comedian Helge Schneider. Their album “Eiersalat in Rock” (egg salad in rock) contains several cover versions (or rather almost dada parodies) of well-known hits. Among them are “Hey Joe”, “Whiter Shade of pale”, “Ebony and Ivory”, and “Copacabana.” All these move far away from the originals.
Schneider himself is actually an outstanding jazz musician but never could make enough money with it - so he incorporated his music skills into his anarchic comedy and became successful.
