The West Berlin band Ton Steine Scherben's Rauch-Haus-Song describes the occupation by squatters of the former Bethanien-Krankenhaus (Bethanien hospital), from the viewpoint of the squatters. The title reflects the fact that the squatters renamed the building „The Georg-von-Rauch-Haus“ after Georg von Rauch, a leftist activist shot by police in 1971. Within the German squatter movement, the song became a classic, with the refrain „Das ist unser Haus“ (This is our house) being shouted out as a motto. The song appears on the album Keine Macht für Niemand.
WestBam published a Remix on Pop 2001 - Geschichte wird gemacht in 2001.
