Hey, fellow Germans—remember music class back in school, where you had to play horrible folksy songs, clap or learn to play the German national anthem on recorder (no s%&t)? Well, at Lemmchen elementary school in Mainz, 30 minutes outside of Germany’s bank capital Frankfurt, they do things a little bit different. Check their rendition of the Kraftwerk classic “Die Roboter”, cardboard robot costumes and all.
