Nina Hagen did it first Lady Gaga, you got that?

I was going to review Lady Gaga's disastrous Born This Way album, but every time I tried I simply typed in better examples into youtube, such as Nina Hagen and Leila K.

Furthermore, Nina Hagen did the whole 'club kids' gutter-glam New York trip thing with her best known hit single New York New York:

And even her 'down with the gays' moments are infinitely more fun (skip to 2:53):
