    General information:
    J.B.O is a metal band which was founded in 1989. Stylistically the band is allocated to the subgenre of Fun-Metal, which means in general the connection between humorous texts and the rock or metal music.
    In the case of J.B.O there can be differentiated three typical styles. The first is the interpretation of music styles like folk, pop or Schlager music in the style of metal. E.g. the song “Ein bisschen Frieden” in the original from Nicole (1982) was interpreted in this way on the album “Laut!”. Otherwise the reverse direction is possible, too. So the Album “Meister der Musik” includes the Black Sabbath song “Paranoid” which is interpreted by Blümchen in a pop/techno style.
    The second is the account of German and English songs in a parodistic way. So Herbert Grönemeyers song “Männer” is reinterpreted in “Frauen” on the album “Explizite Lyrik” or the Queens hit “We are the champions” is translated into “Wir sind die Champignons” on “Laut!”.
    In the later songs the band relies on own compositions with own messages. The song “United States of Blöedsinn” on the same named album includes the messages that only the fun and nonsense can release the world. Another example is “Ohne mir” which takes up the misleading of the people through the modern medias.
