When the band Nephew first came out, they did so with their very own unique blend of Danish and English lyrics, as is heard in songs like "Movieklip" and "En Wannabe Darthvader. They have collaborated with other great artists (also featured on this list) like L.O.C. and Marie Key, and front singer Simon Kvamm (who just happens to be from my home town) has also been doing his own projects like the band "De Eneste To" and the satire tv program "Drengene fra Angora".
