"Schwartzgrad" is a single by the Nibelheimian pop act Jürchen Reiter released in early 1975.

The band also recorded an English version, which they released in 1980. The song became a popular anti-Imperial song during the closing months of the War of Lorican Aggression. It regained a worldwide popularity during the Imperial Crisis and the Eurasianna War

History

The song also achieved enormous underground popularity in the Autocratic East Europan Imperial Alliance. A 15-second clip of the song's performance was shown as a part of the New Year holiday lineup on the state-run TV, leading to the immediate dismissal of the network's director.

On September 15, 2006, the song was uploaded to Alto Reel, and it quickly became an internet meme.
