Die Antwoord Playlist
With a band as notorious as Die Antwoord, it was obvious we were going to be adding a Die Antwoord playlist at some point.
First though, a little background on the band:
Die Antwoord are a shock-rap combo from South Africa comprising of ‘Ninja’ (who also directs and produces the videos) and ‘Yo-Landi’ who writes the stories for the videos.
Other members pop in to add their direction and production skills to the Die Antwoord videos, and these are mentioned in the end credits to each of the videos.
Incredibly dark, violent and sexual content is the norm here, and the videos are fully deserving of a Midlands Maidens Music Box entry.
The combo has had run-ins with the likes of Margot Robbie and Lady Ga Ga for stealing Die Antwoord’s looks and content, they’ve been accused of paedophilia by ‘Sparkles’, one of the performers in the ‘Alien’ video, the charges eventually being dropped by Sparkles, and there have been numerous ‘gay rights’ and ‘face blackening’ accusations – once again any charges arising from these accusations being dropped.
All a bit like a normal day in the Midlands Maidens office then.
You can see where these accusations come from by watching the videos, the first one being the case in point, where Yo-Landi appears as a typical jailbait girl with roving eyes, and her pimp dad Ninja, who throws all of Yo-Landi’s suitors out of the bedroom window by using baseball bats and guns.
And so on to the playlist:
From the first point to the end of the seventeen videos (at the time of writing) we can guarantee you shocks, violence, cruelty, jailbait, and everything else that makes for a Midlands Maidens Music Box playlist.
Hang on and enjoy the ride!
