Founded in 1976 in Hamburg by Uli Salm alias Rudolf Rock, the fun rock'n' roll formation kicked off a long-lasting rock'n' roll revival with original German lyrics in the style of the 50s and 60s. What was initially intended merely as a gag, was very well received by the audience and the media. Bravo' on March 18, 1976: '...there is an incredibly lively and lively rock'n' roll played, with fabulous solo parts and wonderfully cheesy background choirs. If you're looking for an exciting change to the current disco sound at a party, this LP brings it. And not too close!'
Radio Bremen's'Musikladen' immediately stood on the mat to present this sensational new band to a large TV audience. The'Hamburger Abendblatt' wrote on August 14, 1976:'As soon as the Hamburg band'Rudolf Rock &, Die Schocker' had reached the Bremen music shop under the motto'Der Trommler knock the beat as great - to the good old rock'n' Roll' their performance behind them, the phones at the secretary's office ran hot. Director Mike Leckebusch: "We've never seen anything like it. There was a huge demand for live performances. Over the years, prominent German musicians - sometimes shorter, sometimes longer - have been part of the band's staff.
In 1991 the shockers achieved the greatest success with their crazy and crazy version of the folk music banger Herzilein: the title was in the German charts for 20 weeks, reaching number 12.
