Der Kommissar is a compilation album released by the band After the Fire in 1982, featuring the new title track, an English language cover of a minor Falco hit from earlier that year. In the U.S., the album was released simply as ATF by Epic Records, and "Der Kommissar" became the band's biggest stateside hit, cracking the top 10. With the exception of "Der Kommissar," the singles featured on this compilation were originally from After the Fire's three studio albums they recorded for the CBS label: Laser Love, 80-F, and Batteries Not Included. It has been released on Epic on LP and audio cassette, and was released on CD by Collectible Records.
