Die Firma was a punk-band from Berlin, active from 1983 to 1993.
The band was first named "Firma Trötsch".
A concert of the band on October 17, 1987 became legendary, because it was the first time that about 20 or 30 Skinheads were showing up at a public event in the GDR. They shouted things like "Sieg Heil!" and "Deutschland, Deutschland!" and started beating up people in the audience randomly. It seems like they played that show together with the still active band Element of Crime.
The band had numerous different line-ups in their active time. Notable band members were:
- Paul Landers: Guitar (1986-1993)
- Richard Kruspe: Guitar (1992-1993)
- Christoph Schneider: Drums (1990-1993)
- Tatjana Besson
The band released many demos and live tapes, also one album. Here are only the ones, where it is 100% sure, that at least one Rammstein member is on:
- 1990: Live im Landei Bad Liebenwerda 1990
- 1990: Paris 1990
- 1991: Die Firma
- 1991: Live im J.F.Z. Neuruppin
