"Der letzte Tag" (English: The Last Day) is the fourth single by German Alternative rock band Tokio Hotel. Although the song appears on the band's 2005 debut album Schrei, the single version involved a re-recording, because singer Bill Kaulitz's voice broke after the release of the album. The re-recording, along with a new song called "Wir schliessen uns ein" and a B-side, "Frei im freien fall", appear on Part 1 of this single, and on some copies of the re-released and expanded Schrei album Schrei - so laut du kannst. The song was later translated into English for their Scream album, and called Final Day. It was not released as an English single.

Music video[edit]

The music video for the song "Der letzte Tag" consists of a video of the band performing live on a roof top in Berlin. When the video starts, fans run down the street toward the building as the band begins to assemble. Bill begins singing while sitting on the building's edge, his legs dangling. During the video, Georg, Tom and Bill constantly run back and forth on the roof while playing, with the result that their positions change constantly. By the time the band plays the final chorus of the song, Georg, Tom and Bill are bouncing up and down while playing and singing. The fans do likewise. (The music video for "Wir schliessen uns ein" begins on the same roof as the band descends from the building.)
