The Scorpions were far from overnight sensations. They were together for years before they achieved success outside of Germany and Japan. By the early 80’s they had a surprise breakthrough in the United States and they became Hard Rock superstars selling out arenas world wide. Considered Heavy Metal ambassadors, they were able to appeal to the Hair Metal crowd without losing any traditional Heavy Metal appeal. Throw in a dynamic live show and that they are sill performing today, they may not be our highest ranking Germans, but they are the ones with the best shot.
