Der nette Mann (German for The nice man) is the debut album of German hard rock band Böhse Onkelz. It was released in 1984. Der nette Mann is considered the first album of the German skinhead subculture.
6 of its 14 tracks are deemed to either promote violence, nazi-ideology or pornography by the German Bundesprüfstelle für jugendgefährdende Schriften (Federal Department for Media Harmful to Young Persons). Therefore not only the whole album is put on the index (which means, it is not to be sold to minors, not to be put on public display, not to be advertised). Shortly after the Indizierung (indexing), the album was additionally embargoed due to purported "glorification of violence" in its lyrics, making it altogether illegal to sell the album in Germany.
As of today, this decision ceased to come into effect, the Indizierung (indexing) still stands.
Original copies of the album (2000 were sold) are regarded as rarities and have a value of more than 350€.

“The meeting in the open of two dogs, strangers to each other, is one of the most painful, thrilling, and pregnant of all conceivabale encounters; it is surrounded by an atmosphere of the last canniness, presided over by a constraint for which I have no preciser name; they simply cannot pass each other, their mutual embarrassment is frightful to behold.”
—Thomas Mann (18751955)
“Under the lindens on the heather,
There was our double resting-place.”
