Guano Apes was an alternative rock / alternative metal quartet from Germany. Their energetic mix of grunge and heavy metal made them one of the most successful German rock bands of their time.
The Guano Apes were formed in 1990 in GÃ¶ttingen, Germany, by guitarist Henning RÃ¼menapp, bassist Stefan Ude and drummer Dennis Poschwatta. Lead singer Sandra Nasic joined the band in 1994. The band's career launched in 1996 after they won a contest for local unsigned bands with their song "Open Your Eyes". The song was also their first and most successful single, followed by the release of their 1997 debut album Proud Like a God. Two #1 albums, Don't Give Me Names and Walking on a Thin Line, followed in 2000 and 2003, respectively. The band broke up after the release of their best of album Planet of the Apes and a final tour in 2004.
