Today’s Google doodle informs us that this day is the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. I was still crawling on all fours in 1989, but growing up, I have come across footage of people hammering down the rampart and helping others climb over the Wall on the historic day and the feelings it gave me as I tried imagining the day that our own wall would tumble down. Spotting the word “Achtung” in the Google doodle made me want to look up Achtung’s music. “Be the Man” is the first song from Achtung’s first full-length album released in 2008.
