Fettes Brot (German pronunciation: [ˈfɛtəs ˈbʁoːt]) are a German hip hop group who formed in 1992.
Fettes Brot mean fat bread in German. "Fett" is a German slang term for "excellent" and brot is slang for "hash". The band took the name from a fan who called them "Fettes Brot" after an early gig, which was probably meant as a compliment, but the members considered it so bizarre that they took it as the name for their new group.
