Bis zum bitteren Ende - Die Toten Hosen Live!

Never Mind the Hosen, Here's Die Roten Rosen, sometimes Never Mind the Hosen, Here's Die Roten Rosen (aus Düsseldorf) is the first cover album of the German punk band Die Toten Hosen, released under the pseudonym Die Roten Rosen (The Red Roses). The band covers German schlagers on the album. This is the first DTH album to reach the charts. According to Campino, this album has won the most from the release of remasters (2007), because the impact was initially lost, but regained with remastering.[1]

The title and the cover are parodies of Sex Pistols' album Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols. To coincide with the pseudonym, which was used for the first time, the label was changed from ToT 69 to ROT 69 and Totenkopf to Rosenkopf.
