The Killerpilze (English/German for "Killer Mushrooms") is a German Pop rock band from Wertingen near Dillingen, Germany. With their self-written rock songs, the band secured a faithful fan base in their homeland first. In the Spring of 2006, their debut single "Richtig Scheiße" ("Really Shitty") reached #17 in Germany. From their first huge success in the national charts, Killerpilze have taken the world by storm, playing gigs in France, Poland, Czech Republic, as well as Austria and Germany.
