Music sample

"Stach Stach" is 2002 song recorded by Michael Youn and his band Bratisla Boys. This humoristic song was released as first single from the album Anthologigi, in April 2002. Entirely composed of onomatopoeics and meaningless words on a repetitive music, the song became a hit, topping the chart in France for almost four months.

Song information[edit]

The song was first performed as a joke in the French TV show Morning Live, hosted by Michaël Youn and his two friends and broadcast on M6.[1] As it was well received by the public, it was recorded and eventually released as a single, and was sponsored by Fun Radio.

In a funny way, the song is supposed to having been recorded in a submarine while it was at 300 metres of deep. Dvorjak, Olaff and Piotr, who are indicated as writers and composers of the song, are actually the singers under a pseudonym.[2] All three appear bare buttocks on the back of the single cover.

In France, the single was charted for 38 weeks on the chart (top 100) from April 20, 2002. It spent ten weeks atop, 21 weeks in the top ten and 31 weeks in the top 50.[3] Certified Diamond,[4] it is to date the 33rd best-selling single of all time in France.[5]
