It is an anti-FC Bayern Munich song. A slogan from this song has become synonymous with DTH among the fans, which can be shortened: "Es kann soviel passieren. Es kann soviel geschehen/Nur eins weiß ich hundertprozentig. Nie im Leben würde ich zu Bayern gehen." (Many things can happen. Many things can come to pass/One thing I know for sure. Never in my life would I go to Bayern. [here meaning the football club]).
The Tipp-Kick version is more anthem-like, as it features the line "Wir würden nie zum FC Bayern München gehen" (We would never go to FC Bayern Munich) throughout the song, not only in the end and the emphasis is taken off the I-character (the narrator).
The music video was directed by Peter Thorwarth. Most of it consists of a friendly football match, where various people (and a dog) take part of, including the band. After the match the band is shown playing at a gig. In the end, a figure in a Bayern jacket is seen (implied to be Uli Hoeneß, the club's president) watching the VHS of the music video, noting "Das ist der Dreck, an dem unsere Gesellschaft irgendwann ersticken wird." ("This is the kind of filth that will choke our society at some point."), an actual quote from Hoeneß about the song. On wishing Hoeneß a happy 60th birthday, Campino mentioned that Die Toten Hosen lost significant CD sales in the South of Germany since the release of the song, and that as of 2012, the sales had not recovered.
Bayern is a bay colt bred in Kentucky by Helen Alexander. His sire, Offlee Wild was a successful racehorse whose wins included the Massachusetts Handicap in 2004 (beating Funny Cide) and the Suburban Handicap in 2005. Before Bayern, the best of his progeny was Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies winner She Be Wild. As of 2014, Offlee Wild stands at the Pin Oak Lane Farm in Pennsylvania. Bayern's dam Alittlebitearly was, as her name suggests, born prematurely on December 14, 2002, which made her almost useless for racing purposes. The age of a Thoroughbred racehorse advances by one year on January 1, meaning that Alittlebitearly officially became a yearling when less than a month old and, if raced, would have had to compete on level terms with horses who could be up to 11 months older.
A retail or a shop is a business that presents a selection of goods and offers to trade or sell them to customers for money or other goods. Shopping is an activity in which a customer browses the available goods or services presented by one or more retailers with the intent to purchase a suitable selection of them. In some contexts it may be considered a leisure activity as well as an economic one.
In modern days customer focus is more transferred towards online shopping; worldwide people order products from different regions and online retailers deliver their products to their homes, offices or wherever they want. The B2C (business to consumer) process has made it easy for consumers to select any product online from a retailer's website and have it delivered to the consumer within no time. The consumer does not need to consume his energy by going out to the stores and saves his time and cost of travelling.
The shopping experience can range from delightful to terrible, based on a variety of factors including how the customer is treated, convenience, the type of goods being purchased, and mood.
It was not included on any of the band's six studio albums. In the USA, it appeared on the five-track EP, Beat Surrender (Polydor 810751), which peaked at No. 171 on the Billboard 200 album chart.
The decision for the Jam's final single was between "Beat Surrender", "Doctor Love*" (which Weller wrote but instead gave to Bananarama for their album Deep Sea Skiving) and "A Solid Bond in Your Heart", later a Style Council single in 1983. The Jam's version of "A Solid Bond in Your Heart" was not released until 1992 on the Extras album, although Rick Buckler, The Jam's drummer, claimed that The Style Council had pinched his original drum track recording.
