"Friss oder stirb" (Feed or die) is a song by Die Toten Hosen. It was released as a non-album single in 2004. It is a socially critical song about the current situation in Germany.

An English version, titled "Dog Eat Dog", was recorded for the soundtrack of Land of Plenty.

"Goodbye Garageland", the b-side to this single, is a tribute to Joe Strummer, who died in 2002. Campino is a big fan of the Clash. The song contains quotes from classic Clash songs.

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Daniel Siegler.

The band performs in an abstract, animated, black, white, and red city, where a highway with cars and trucks, fields with combine harvesters, a jet airplane and a field with pumpjacks play a prominent role as symbols of economy.
