The Trashmen's only notable hit was 1964's "Surfin' Bird". The single's album, Surfin' Bird, wasn't successful. The song, however, has been used in many movies and is generally known to be an earworm.

They reunited in the 1980s and played until the death of Steve Wahrer in 1989. He left the band due to dissatisfaction with Kralle and Remmler over financial matters, leading to the complete breakup of Trio in 1985. The group disbanded in 1967. The corresponding soundtrack is the album Whats the Password, however, drummer Peter Behrens does not perform in any of the songs, despite appearing on the album's cover. The song, however, has been used in many movies and is generally known to be an earworm. However, the movie flopped miserably; even avid Trio fan Matthias Klein said, "[the members of] Trio are not actors". The single's album, Surfin' Bird, wasn't successful. In the movie, three people (played by Trio) kill doubles of themselves as part of a twisted scam to gain riches.
The Trashmen's only notable hit was 1964's "Surfin' Bird". They produced a movie called "Drei gegen Drei", meaning "Three Against Three". The group played surf rock with many elements from garage rock. All of these songs except the first have a corresponding German version, which sometimes differs considerably. The group's lineup was Tony Andreason on lead guitar, Dan Winslow on guitar and singing, Steve Wahrer on drums and singing, and Bob Reed on bass. Its most notable songs, other than Da Da Da, are probably "Broken Hearts for You and Me", "Boom Boom", "Hearts are Trump", and "Anna Letmein Letmeout". The Trashmen were a rock and roll band formed in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 1962. For instance, the German version of "Da da da" was #2 on the charts.
However, in its time, Trio had some popularity in Germany. The band never got very popular outside of Germany, and are largely forgotten even for their one-hit wonder. Rather, their songs were bare-boned to show how bare the bones actually are. This simplicity was not simply due to an inability to sing or play well; Remmler's later solo career shows that he was capable of much more complicated music, and Kralle has demonstrated considerable ability as a guitarist in other ventures.
Bass was used very infrequently until their later songs. For this reason, many of their songs are restricted to drums, guitar, vocals, and just one or maybe two other instruments, if any at all. Trio's main principle was to remove almost all the polish from their songs, and to use the simplest practical structures (most of their songs were three-chord songs). However, Trio preferred the name Neue Deutsche Fröhlichkeit, which means "New German Cheerfulness", to describe their music. At that time, as now, popular songs were based on extremely simple structures that were simply polished.
It was a product of the Neue Deutsche Welle (or NDW). However, to understand Trio one must understand its context. The song is often given as an example of a song that is extremely repetitive or devoid of creative talent. By far the band is most noted for the aforementioned "Da Da Da".
The re-release had some changes: two songs were added and the album was digitally remastered. The 1997 CD of TRIO and Error was also released as Da Da Da in the United States, in response to the 1997 US Volkswagen commercial that featured the song "Da Da Da I Don't Love You You Don't Love Me Aha Aha Aha", often contracted to simply "Da Da Da". It should be noted that there are many versions of Bye Bye (marked with different advertisements on the cover); versions outside of Germany are called TRIO and Error and feature no advertisements. The band also produced a number of singles.
