Tom Kaulitz: We Hope America's Ready for Tokio Hotel!

Check out this behind-the-scenes video of Tokio Hotel as they hang out at Nylon TV headquarters!

Frontman Bill Kaulitz shared that when he was young, he loved listening to Nena (“99 Luftballoons”) but that now he’s into Stereophonics and Kings of Leon! Bill‘s twin brother, Tom, said he was a big Aerosmith fan back in the day.

“We hope America’s ready for Tokio Hotel,” Tom said, “and we can feel it!”

  • AlpacaMom

    Wow, so many haters. Wonder why? This band is so original, and do their own thing without letting ‘big business’ interfere. One would think they would be loved by all. They’re on the new Alice movie CD. Their song ‘Strange’ is so wonderful. I don’t get those who hate them. Nope, I just don’t get it!

    Thank you, Just Jared!

    We need them in America right away!!!!! The sooner the better!!!! Why are they not popular here? Why can’t people see what I see in them? They can’t get past Bill’s look. They right away don’t want to listen to their music when they see him. We are very narrow-minded in the U.S. We follow the music industry like lost sheep. We like what is in, we like what everyone else likes, we like whatever is popular. Nobody has the nerve to think outside the box and listen and look at something different. All everybody listens to his hip hop with lyrics about sex, its disgusting!!!!!

  • yariana

    haters lol

    thanks Jusrt Jared

    and yes America is soo ready!

  • KimberKaulitz

    America has been ready for Tokio Hotel for a long time. America just needs to accept these four amazing MEN. For who they are <33 I love them and their unique style.

  • Mel

    I’m torn between calling them “adorable <3″ and “sexy ;)” :P Hope we get more pictures from the shoot soon! (And I know I speak for many when I say Canada is quite ready for them too ;D)

  • Michele

    I can’t wait for them to return to the US. I went to 3 concerts on their last tour in the states and they were so entertaining!

  • Claudiaclaudiaa126@

    Aw, they are wonderful! YES we are ready and waiting! Please come back soon!

    Thanks for posting this Jared.

  • Kayko

    I love these guys!! They give me hope that Germany is finally changing! I’m half german, and lived half my life there, and I left, couldn’t take it. Happy in Canada, but these guys make me think about going back to Germany again, if something like them came out of it….

  • BoBo

    vco @ 03/04/2010 at 7:53 pm

  • Smarty Pants

    “no one cares about them except for their fans” LOL that’s the most stupid and ridiculous comment I’ve read.

    guess what, no one cares about many people except for their fans.
    this is what they are called “fans”

  • SammyB

  • tante augustine

    Bill looks mesmerizing in this vid, and I have no doubt their big break will happen very soon – their next single is Dark Side of the Sun which is one of the catchiest songs ever.

    Plus they ll get to show America that Bill is the true original inspiration for Glambert (and not the other way round as ignorant haters often say)

  • Susanne

    I hope they can go to America soon. It´s up to you America! If you like Star Wars, Lord of the Rings or arriving Aliens, you will love the show!
