Dezember des gleichen Jahres die Chance nutzte, in den Westen zu emigrieren. Nicht viel später überwarf die Sängerin sich mit den vier Musikern, die ihr Unberechenbarkeit und egozentrische Starallüren vorwarfen.
Der Titel des erschienenen Albums ist Unbehagen. Diese Einflüsse finden sich auch auf den zahlreichen, mit unterschiedlichsten Musikern eingespielten Plattenveröffentlichungen dieser Zeit.
Auf ihren nächsten Schallplatten gab sie sich kosmopolitisch , sang mal Deutsch, mal Englisch, schlug sich zur Präsidentin vor Street , FC Union Berlin eine neue Vereinshymne ein. Im Dezember erschien die Biografie Nina Hagen. Das Buch wurde mit dem Literaturpreis Corine ausgezeichnet.
Mit dem gleichnamigen Konzertprogramm ging sie mit dem Orchester im deutschsprachigen Raum auf Tournee. Dort kritisierte sie öffentlich die Medien, die ihrer Meinung nach nicht verfassungsgerecht über aktuelle Ereignisse in der Politik und Wirtschaft berichteten. Die Süddeutsche Zeitung schrieb am 9. Das kann sie, weil sie eine Stimme hat, die von der Kälte einer Grace Jones bis zur Raserei einer frühen Tina Turner sämtliche emotionalen Register beherrscht.
März erschien Hagens Autobiographie mit dem Titel Bekenntnisse. Biermann's political views later influenced young Hagen. Hagen left school at age sixteen and went to Poland, where she began her career. She added songs by Janis Joplin and Tina Turner to the "allowable" set lists during shows.
Upon graduating, she joined the band Automobil. In East Germany, she performed with the band Automobil, becoming one of the country's best-known young stars. Her most famous song from the early part of her career was " Du hast den Farbfilm vergessen " You Forgot the Colour Film ", a subtle dig mocking the sterile, gray, Communist state,"  in The circumstances surrounding the family's emigration were exceptional: Biermann was granted permission to perform a televised concert in Cologne , but denied permission to re-cross the border to his adopted home country.
Hagen submitted an application to leave the country. In it, she claimed to be Biermann's biological daughter, and threatened to become the next Wolf Biermann if not allowed to rejoin her father. Her label advised her to acclimatise herself to Western culture through travel, and she arrived in London during the height of the punk rock movement. Hagen was quickly taken up by a circle that included The Slits [ citation needed ] and Sex Pistols.
The album also included a version of "Rangehn" "Go for It" , a song she had previously recorded in East Germany, but with different music. The debut album gained significant attention throughout Germany and abroad, both for its hard rock sound and for Hagen's theatrical vocals which drew heavily from her operatic training, far different from the straightforward singing of her East German recordings. However, relations between Hagen and the other band members deteriorated over the course of the subsequent European tour, and Hagen decided to leave the band in , though she was still under contract to produce a second album.
This LP , Unbehagen which in German also means "discomfort" or "unease" , was eventually produced with the band recording their tracks in Berlin and Hagen recording the vocals in Los Angeles.
The other band members sans Hagen, soon developed a successful independent musical career as Spliff. Meanwhile, Hagen's public persona was steadily creating media uproar. She became infamous for an appearance on an Austrian evening talk show called Club 2 , on 9 August , on the topic of youth culture, when she demonstrated while clothed, but explicitly various female masturbation positions and became embroiled in a heated argument with other panelists, in particular, writer and journalist Humbert Fink.
The talk show host, Dieter Seefranz, had to step down following this controversy. Brood and Hagen would have a long romantic relationship that would end when Hagen could no longer tolerate Brood's drug abuse.
She would refer to Brood as her "soulmate" long after Brood committed suicide in A European tour with a new band in was cancelled, and Hagen turned to the United States. A limited-edition inch EP was released on vinyl that summer in the U. Two songs from her first album Nina Hagen Band were on the A side, and two songs from her second album Unbehagen were on the B-side. All four songs were sung in German, although two had English titles and the other two were covers of English-language songs with new German lyrics.
In late , Hagen discovered she was pregnant, broke up with the father-to-be Ferdinand Karmelk,  and moved to Los Angeles. In , Hagen released her first English-language album: NunSexMonkRock , a dissonant mix of punk, funk, reggae, and opera. She then went on a world tour with the No Problem Orchestra.
In , she released the album Angstlos and a minor European tour. By this time, Hagen's public appearances were becoming stranger and frequently included discussions of God, UFOs, her social and political beliefs, animal rights and vivisection, and claims of alien sightings. She performed songs from this album during the version of Rock in Rio.
