Pop culture award
Beatsteaks are the favorite band

With Tocotronic and Beatsteaks, two well-known men’s bands won important prizes at the pop culture prize. That could be a nice template for songwriter Antje Schomaker, who also sometimes deals with the testosterone-heavy industry in her lyrics. However, her win in the solo category shows that there is definitely movement.

Hamburg indie pop singer Antje Schomaker won the pop culture award in the favorite artist category. Schomaker (“I don’t have to do anything”) was honored on Tuesday evening in front of about 1,000 guests at the Admiralspalast in Berlin. In her songs, the songwriter also deals with a male-dominated music scene. “I feel like we’re changing something,” she said after the awards ceremony.

However, two awards in major categories promptly went to all-male bands. The Beatsteaks (“I don’t care as long as you sing”) from Berlin were honored as the favorite band. The band Tocotronic, based in Hamburg and Berlin, was able to present their favorite album “Nie wieder Krieg”.

The Pop Culture Prize, organized for the sixth time, was awarded by a jury of about 900 members of the Association for the Promotion of Pop Culture. According to the association, members come from all walks of life in the music industry and pop culture.

Metal queen Doro Pesch honored for life’s work

Kraftklub frontman Felix Kummer, who recorded the hit song “The Last Song (Everything Will Be Good)” with Fred Rabe as Kummer, delivered the favorite song. A Lifetime Achievement Award went to singer Doro Pesch. The 58-year-old from Düsseldorf broke through the male-dominated phalanx of metal-rock as the “Queen of Metal” in the 1990s with her band Warlock as a solo musician.

There was also money in the Most Hopeful Newcomer category. The Bremen punk band Team Scheisse has won the prize of 10,000 euros. An award for living pop culture went to presenter and comedian Carolin Kebekus. This year she organized the DCKS Festival in Cologne, a festival with exclusively female bands. Electropop singer Antonia Rug, who works as Novaa, managed to impress in the Favorite Producer category with her song “She’s A Star”. The jury saw Rammstein’s stage spectacle with lots of fire, light and effects as the most impressive live show. The favorite video was provided by Manuel Bittorf, who works as Betterov, and director Fares Hamade with “Bring me home”.

The jury awarded the “Audio Book of Sexualized Violence” as the most beautiful story by Blond, the band that includes Nina and Lotta Kummer, sisters of Kraftklub singer Felix Kummer.
