Unsterblich (Immortal) is the eighth studio album by the German punk band Die Toten Hosen. The band has stated dissatisfaction with the cover, which is a photo by Johann Zambryski.[1] This album is considered overall one of the more peaceful and quiet DTH albums, although there are some loud songs on the album.
