Die Toten Hosen - Steh Auf (Stand Up). German & English versions, & live in 2022

This song, a hit for DTH in 2002, was written to help people battling depression, as the video makes clear.

They recorded an English version later, for the soundtrack of the 2004 Michelle Williams/John Diehl film Land of Plenty, a film directed by Wim Wenders (a fan and friend of DTH lead singer Campino; Wenders later wrote and directed The Palermo Shooting to give Campino the lead role, but the script was hopeless and the film bombed).

I could not find any video of the English version other than the one below, which a fan combined with a blurry video.

German version first, then English:










Live in Köln (Cologne), Germany, less than two weeks ago:






Btw, according to Wikipedia, citing a source that's no longer online, Campino wrote the song because he wanted to do something with a message similar to "You'll Never Walk Alone," which is one of his favorite songs -- and a song DTH often close their concerts with. It is a great song, but I suspect one reason Campino likes it is that Liverpool's soccer team (his favorite team), like a lot of other sports teams, has used it.

Video of them closing that concert in Cologne on June 10th:
