Einstürzende Neubauten

Experimental German group, formed in West Berlin in 1980. The band are notable for predominately using custom built instruments constructed out of scrap metal and power tools.

Their name in English literally means "Collapsing New Buildings," where "New Buildings" describes a type of architecture common in post-WWII Germany (large concrete box-style buildings) and "Collapsing" is an adjective in this context, not a verb.
