does it still exist or disbanded? Mikkalai 23:55, 25 Mar 2005 (UTC)

In 1985 the band dissolved after they released several more albums without much commercial success. -- 03:16, 4 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Would it be legal to link to an MP3 of the song in English? -- 21:49, 6 Jun 2005 (UTC)

  • No. --DJH47 06:48, 20 December 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • It would probably be good to mention that the song was also done in english, though. I heard a rumor that there is also a russian version as well, but I haven't seen anything to confirm or deny it yet. Martin Rudat(T|@|C) 13:53, 17 February 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Can we get a caption on that pick telling which member is which? You know, from left to right? That'd be swell.

Actually, there is a Russian Moskau YTMND on I'll try to find the link for it.

  • I'd put the link, but it's blacklisted for some reason.

In addition, there are two versions, according to One version is by a Russian band called Accademia (band), and another by another Russian band called OSP Studia (Leonid Kaganov). I have no idea which version the YTMND in that link is playing. 22:23, 2 February 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • The article needs to say if it was a West or East German band.
    • They're West German, because the Moskau video at one point shows the address "HÖCHLSTR. 2, 8000 MÜNCHEN 80", which means that they were from Munich, which is West Germany. 22:23, 2 February 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
      • They WERE West German, mind you. Germany is united since 1990. 18:42, 5 May 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk)

Not notable as a YTMND Fad[edit]

In a google search for "dschinghis khan", YTMND does not appear on the first or even second page. It is not notable in relation to the article. In addition, linking to anything containing that much of their songs is blatantly illegal. --DJH47 06:48, 20 December 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I don't think a google search is a valid test to see if something is noteworthy or not. As long as YTMND has a page up on Wikipedia it should be linked to when appropriate. If you are so hung up about copyright violations you should also delete this link: COPYRIGHT VIOLATION DELETED as it contains links to the video and the YTMND. As it stands right now you are showing a grossly unfair bais against YTMND.--Virulent 78 12:56, 20 December 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Just because a page is notable enough to be on Wikipedia does not mean that every single random fad on it must be noted. Thank you for telling me that the blog was a copyright violation. --DJH47 01:52, 21 December 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Compromise? I have edited the article so it no longer references YTMND but still recognizes the fact that the song Moskau (and therefore the group itself) have become a popular internet fad. The Moskau article still references YTMND but I have altered it so it is merely used as an example of the song being popular on the internet. In no cases is the actual YTMND page linked so there should be no copyright violations. Happy? --Virulent 78 04:37, 21 December 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I am fine with this. --DJH47 06:15, 21 December 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes, that will do great. Good job on being constructive! Weather rain.pngSoothingR 14:34, 21 December 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The Moskau Video[edit]

About the Moskau video floating around on the internet; does anyone know when it was originally broadcast on TV & what channel it was broadcast on?

17.09.1979, Channel: ZDF, the show called DISCO (Labrokratis 23:33, 11 May 2007 (UTC)) There are also at least 3 more "live" versions of "Moskau".Reply[reply]

Moskau: Extended Version[edit]

Hey, I discovered something interesting about Moskau. Apparently, there's an extended version of the song. Normally, Moskau is 4:29 long, but this version is longer. I have a link to a video here with part of that version (it should be around the 2-minute mark):

Also, I found a page with a MIDI version of this extended Moskau (Let me know if there are problems with the page. It's in the M table):

Does anyone have any lyrics of this extended version of Moskau or any non-MIDI versions of it (e.g., MP3s, WMAs, OGGs, TNTs, etc...)? I'd be really grateful if anyone could find lyrics of this version of Moskau. Also, some YTMNDs have parts of this version. Sgt. Bond 20:53, 16 November 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Never mind, I found some. This extended version is 6:01 long. Sgt. Bond 22:47, 29 November 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hah, I dowloaded a 8:20 version from iTunes. That must be the extended extended version.

There are lyrics to that on Steppenwind, I think. Also, the music that plays in the background is the melody to the extended one.

How many Americans actually knew of Dschinghis Khan before "Moskau" became an internet hit? 14:50, 9 April 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

"Rocking Son of Dschinghis Khan"[edit]

I know that rock 'n' roll did not exist in Genghis Khan's time, but who here thinks that Ögedei Khan was the so-called "Rocking Son of Dschinghis Khan"? If not him, then does anyone else have any idea about which of Genghis Khan's sons could be the "Rocking Son of Dschinghis Khan"? (P.S., these are serious questions) Sgt. Bond 19:08, 28 April 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It is the third Single. Dschinghis Khan - Rocking son of Dschinghis Khan broadcasted in an English version, on Musikladen 49, at 18.10.1979 (Labrokratis 23:37, 11 May 2007 (UTC))Reply[reply]

Disco is dead[edit]

I don't know if you've heard, but disco is dead. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:51, 1 May 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Dschinghis Khan cover[edit]

It might be interesting to add a "Trivia" section, mentioning that a Japanese female group called Berryz Koubou covered this song recently. Despite taking the edge off the original to mellow it up to sing in Japanese, it's clearly a tribute to this great band and the eurovision performance. It seems like an ideal 'trivia'. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:18, 11 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Get back to where it once belonged[edit]

On the name change[edit]

I'd like to see this discussed. There is at least one record with the "Genghis Khan" name that was released in an English speaking country: the Moskau single released in Australia by 7 Records [1], but Reinthal should offer some sources showing that this is what they did generally in English-speaking countries. Kcowolf (talk) 19:16, 24 October 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • How about this? Or you could do a little bit of research of your own; it doesn't take much time. They certainly weren't known by the name "Dschinghis Khan" in English-speaking countries, now where they? Why would they be? The name makes no sense to us. (Unless you can provide a link that proves otherwise?) reinthal (talk) 20:12, 1 January 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Merging Articles[edit]

Why have all the articles about the members (except Leslie Mándoki) been merged with this article? They should all have their separated articles instead of being merged into one. --User:Brianhardy44 February 9, 2010. 21:47 (PST).

Most of the individual articles were converted to redirects, either because there wasn't all that much info in the individual articles or because it wasn't properly sourced. For example, note the debate going on for Louis, the star of the group:[2] Perhaps you can improve that situation? ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 06:08, 10 February 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Article Cleanup[edit]

I placed a WP:copyedit on the article as there are currently different formats of grammar used by different editors. I have made some changes to the article according to standards. I am still an amateur of Wikipedia, and still learning on the editing concepts and standards. I can do by best in helping improve this article and others.

It is late-night/early-morning right now (04:43 UTC-5); I will do more edits later in the day. Hopefully, I can get some discussion and consensus about the cleanup. Anime4international (talk) 08:43, 16 October 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The name change is ridiculous[edit]

This was a German band and its name was "Dschinghis Khan". Since when are names translated? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:32, 14 December 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Ridiculous? Ask the band: they were known as Genghis Khan in English-speaking countries. Do some fact-checking before you call anything like this ridiculous. reinthal (talk) 20:06, 1 January 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Timeline - glitched LineData[edit]

The LineData in the timeline was glitched - The first set of lines have diagonal lines originating I believe from 1970 drawn over the text and disappearing off the left hand side. I dug through the documentation for the timeline tag, but I could not see what was causing it.

I did a no-changes edit and publish to see if it would regenerate, and it appears to be okay now.

So I don't know what caused that, but if anyone spots an odd no-action edit, this was why!
