Their new work did not enjoy the same commercial success of their earlier albums. Also they had in a concert with the Philharmonic Orchestra Hagen.
Extrabreit played their th concert on 27 August to several thousand fans in Hengsteysee in Hagen. The band was presented with their first Platinum record for their first major success in There was a big problem for many bands Progressive Rock bands during the seventies: getting their records released was extremely difficult, and for many groups it proved impossible.
Effectively they had to wait until Franco died, which led to Spain becoming a democracy in Suddenly these bands, several of whom had been going since the start of the decade, could release their music on vinyl with relative ease. The irony was that by this time musical fashion was changing, and Punk and New Wave were already making their presence felt. The floodgates had been opened and record buyers were suddenly spoilt for chance. It was as if all the different genres of the s were breaking at the same time.
Apparently the latter frequently shared bills with Punk and New Wave groups who loved them for their anarchic sense of humour. This is the opening song from their LP.

After Extrabreit - Learning Deutsch (Vinyl) months of intense touring -- at one time up to 70 consecutive gigs without a single day off -- Extrabreit returned to the studio to record their sophomore effort, Welch ein Land! What Great Men: -- a more angry, politically quarrelsome album. To everyone's big surprise, first single "Polizisten" immediately turned into the band's first hit -- only gaining strength when the Bavarian government banned the song for openly insulting the country's police force.
Around the same time, German music journalists had discerned a new trend and dubbed it Neue Deutsche Welle. Bands like IdealTrioand Nena demonstrated a new national self-esteem, and Extrabreit -- with their raucous, untamed attitude -- fit right in.
Over a year after its release, Extrabreit 's debut album followed its Extrabreit - Learning Deutsch (Vinyl) into the charts and the single "Hurra, Hurra, die Schule Brennt" quickly climbed into the Top Ten. By both of the band's albums had established themselves in Germany's Top Five album chart -- and against all odds Extrabreit had turned into Germany's most successful band of the year.
Success was not there to stay, however. As the Zeitgeist shifted and Neue Deutsche Welle made way for other trends, Extrabreit struggled hard to stay in the media's focus. Unfazed, the newborn trio released full-lengths in and -- but gradually faded into obscurity nevertheless.

After going on hiatus for the better part of two years, the band reconvened in to begin working on its most ambitious work to date, the expensively produced Sex After 3 years in a Submarine.
The album, released in and for the first time featuring all-English lyrics, was completed with new bandmembers Michael Gassmann on drums and Peter Szimmaneck on keyboards, and had the band going on tour for the first time in years.
However, sales were as bad as ever, and everybody once more went their separate ways.
