AllMusic Review by

German punk and Deutschrock group Böhse Onkelz formed in 1980 and disbanded in 2005, and during these 25 years, the band recorded 15 studio albums, four of which hit the number one spot in the German album charts. The 2011 box set Lieder Wie Orkane (Songs Like Hurricanes) seeks to give a different, more in-depth view of the group's oeuvre than the three-CD set Gestern War Heute Noch Morgen (Yesterday, Today Was Still Tomorrow) from 2001, collecting 50 songs on four CDs. (Even though the songs were selected by the bandmembers themselves, the track list ignores the group's first few albums.) The set also includes a DVD with four previously unreleased live songs recorded at the Loreley open-air stage in 2003.
