"Steh auf, wenn du am Boden bist" (Stand up if you're on the floor) is a song by Die Toten Hosen. It's the third single and the thirteenth track from the album Auswärtsspiel.

Campino has stated that the reason behind this song is that he had a line like "Walk on with hope in your heart" in his head and it didn't seem weird in English and what he wanted was to create something similar.[1]

An English version, titled "Stand Up", was recorded for the soundtrack of Land of Plenty.

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Olaf Heine.

The video is black-and-white and shows the band performing the song, which is interspersed with clips of depressed people, who start to smile as the song is nearing the end.
