KMFDM - Insulting?

The label usually put on KMFDM is that of an industrial rock band, for what that's worth.

What does KMFDM stand for - flags-and-crowd_webFact is that behind the abbreviation the Hamburgers adopted as their band name the frequently used explanation - Kein Mitleid für die Mehrheit (No mercy for the majority) - does not lurk, but the purposely ungrammatical phrase Kein Mehrheit für die Mitleid (No majority for mercy).

As with any band that chooses to use an acronym as band name, there is also a range of alternative explanations for KMFDM, some of them ruthlessly insulting fellow rock stars.

We mention a few of the more imaginative ones: Kill Mother Fucking Depeche Mode, Krispy Melted Fish Dealing Mescaline, Kyle Minogue Fans Don't Masturbate, Keep Madonna From Doing Music, Kill Me For Drug Money and Killing Madonna Frees Desperate Minds.
