(English: The Skeptics) is a German punk
band founded 1986 in East Berlin
Die Skeptiker were part of the so called Die anderen Bands (the other bands in according to the mainstream bands in East Germany) which played very political lyrics that criticised life in the GDR.
After German reunification in 1990 the band lost a lot of their fans, and on following tours people were very violent against the band members.
Vocalist Eugen Balanskat founded in 2000 the band Roter Mohn (later renamed to Rotorfon) playing punk rock cover versions of 1920s - 1940s songs. The band reformed in 2006 to mark their 20th anniversary.
