Scooter (band)

Scooter are a German techno hard dance group founded in Hamburg, who have sold over 25 million records and earned over 80 gold and platinum awards. Scooter are considered the most successful German single-record act with 23 top ten hits. The group is currently composed of members H.P. Baxxter, Rick J. Jordan and Michael Simon. Although most of the group's early recordings are in the styles of happy hardcore or hard trance, Scooter have experimented with other dance genres such as hardstyle and jumpstyle, and occasionally hip hop, hard rock and house.

Scooter's trademark sound features fast tempos and happy melodies, accompanied by frontman H.P. Baxxter rapping lyrics, sampling, and occasionally choruses involving artificially pitched voices. Among their more well-known hits are "Move Your Ass!", "Hyper Hyper", "How Much Is The Fish?", "Ramp! (The Logical Song)", "Jigga Jigga!", "Nessaja", "Maria (I Like It Loud)", "Weekend" and "Jumping All Over the World".
