Band member Wolfgang Flür: 'No! Someone else told me that they thought the way we speak in German, 'Fahren,' which means driving, sounds like the English word, 'fun.' 'Fahren fahren fahren,' 'fun fun fun.' That is wrong. But it works. Driving is fun. We had no speed limit on the autobahn, we could race through the highways, through the Alps, so yes, fahren fahren fahren, fun fun fun. But it wasn't anything to do with the Beach Boys! We used to drive a lot, we used to listen to the sound of driving, the wind, passing cars and lorries, the rain, every moment the sounds around you are changing, and the idea was to rebuild those sounds on the synth'. Ralf Hütter has said that The Beach Boys were an influence on the band. These quotes are about the classic hit song 'Autobahn' which is sung entirely in German. The phonetics of 'fahren' sounds a lot like 'fun' and this has caused a mix-up with listeners, including me. I wasn't even 10 years old yet when this song hit the charts.
