"TV-Glotzer" is a single released in 1978 by Nina Hagen. It is a cover of "White Punks on Dope" by The Tubes, but with different German lyrics from the perspective of an East German unable to leave her country, and who feels "alone, the world has forgotten me," but who escapes by watching West German television ("I watch from East to West"), where "everything is so colorful." Hagen herself left East Germany in 1976.
