"Junge" (Boy) is a song by Die √Ąrzte. It's the sixth track and the first single from their 2007 album Jazz ist anders. It debuted on the radio on August 31.

The song is about teens offending with their bad behaviour and appearance, ruining their childhood and life. The song describes a generation gap by referring the day-to-day criticisms (for example by parents) appealing to the boy to start a respectable life.

A Chinese language version of "Junge" was released on the compilation Poptastic Conversation China on August 1, 2008.[1]

The video

The video for the single is very graphic and depicts various violent attacks by zombies to town members, while the band Die √Ąrzte looks on helplessly from the top of a broadcast van and sings about teens ruining their lives. The band use a variety of makeshift weapons, such as a guitar, binoculars and a beer can, before a crossbow is produced from out of nowhere in a section that resembles a scene from the 2004 British film Shaun of the Dead. The zombies are finally overwhelming and Farin gets eaten at the end. It was directed by Norbert Heitker.

The opening scene, where a bleeding zombie kid is walking down the street, is a parody of the opening scene of the film "Arlington Road".

There is also a censored version of the single, which is meant to be funny. The zombies' faces are covered with other funny faces (most of the band members). The dripping blood in the beginning is blue. Some attack scenes are slightly covered and the worst of the attack scenes are covered by tags with funny messages like "I wouldn't show this scene to my children either!", "Entertainment has to become more family-friendly!", "This scene is unacceptable. I want to apologise for this!", "Luckily, the video is over now!", "Funny noises... Are they also on the single?". In the end, the following message is displayed: "The Hot Zombie Action Association monitored the zombie action. No zombies were harmed in the making of this film."
