BORN A REBEL is a nu-metal band based in Berlin, Germany. The five musicians combine political rap with hardrock and metal. Founded in late 2017 they started to create their own explosive and unique sound. Strong driving drumbeats mixed with fat basslines and punchy bright metal guitars create an ear popping blend of heavy hitting nu-metal music that will get you hooked and keep you coming back for more.

Through their politically charged lyrics the band openly moves against mass surveillance, state terror, greed driven warfare, capitalism, racism, social disparity and actively stands up for social equality, free speech, whistleblowers, civil rights and world peace. BORN A REBEL is a symbol of the unity of nations and their people. The band roots itself in multiculturalism with its members coming from all parts of the globe including Thailand, Australia, Latvia and Germany.


The musicians have been interviewed in the past by STAR FM Berlin, Alex Berlin, different internet radio formats and mentioned in a vast array of music blogs. Their Facebook account is clocking in at around 4.200 followers.

BORN A REBEL has played live at several live locations in Berlin, taken part in gigs in Leipzig and Siegen and in many contests such as Deutscher Rock & Pop Preis, SPH, Berlin Bands United and Emergenza. The band can’t wait to hit the stage.


The band released their debut self-titled EP and subsequent single ‘Freedom’ in 2019 and 2020. Both are available on all major streaming services:

BORN A REBEL has released two music videos for their songs ‘Men of greed’ and ‘Sabotage’. A third shortfilm for the single ‘Power to the people’ just had its premiere on YouTube.

The cover picture shows a scene of the East German uprising of 17th of June 1953, which began with a strike action by East Berlin construction workers. They protested against the bad economic conditions in the German Democratic Republic in the postwar area of World War II and the political decision of the communist government to raise work norms and work quotas. The strike turned into a widespread uprising. More than one million people all over East Germany took to the streets to demand fair working conditions, free elections and power to the people. State agencies were occupied and prisoners of the regime freed. In the end the revolt was violently suppressed by tanks of the Soviet occupation forces and Kasernierte Volkspolizei. More than 100 people were killed, others were abducted. Without the help of the Soviet military the SED regime would have lost its power, like it did years later in 1989. The date, the 17th of June 1953, was celebrated as a public holiday in West Germany up until the German Reunification.
