|Die Ärzte singles chronology|
The song is about teenagers experiencing criticism and rejection and being held responsible for everything.
The video for the single is very graphic and depicts various violent attacks by zombies to town members, while the band Die Ärzte looks on helplessly from the top of a broadcast van and sings about teenagers ruining their lives. The band use a variety of makeshift weapons, such as a guitar, binoculars and a beer can, before a crossbow is produced from out of nowhere in a section that resembles a scene from the 2004 British film Shaun of the Dead. The zombies are finally overwhelming and guitarist Farin Urlaub gets eaten at the end. It was directed by Norbert Heitker.
The opening scene, where a bleeding zombie child is walking down the street, is a parody of the opening scene of the film Arlington Road.
There is also a censored version of the single, which is meant to be funny. The zombies' faces are covered with faces (mostly of the band members). The dripping blood in the beginning is blue. Some attack scenes are slightly covered and the worst of the attack scenes are covered by tags with messages like "I wouldn't show this scene to my children either!", "Entertainment has to become more family-friendly!", "This scene is unacceptable. I want to apologise for this!", "Luckily, the video is over now!", "Funny noises ... Are they also on the single?". In the end, the following message is displayed: "The Hot Zombie Action Association monitored the zombie action. No zombies were harmed in the making of this film."
