Nina Hagen’s "Smack Jack"


I’ve searched the web and can’t find the video for Nina Hagen’s “Smack Jack”. This video seriously disturbed me (in a good way) when I was a teenager back in the early 80’s.

I haven’t seen it since. Can you find it, oh mighty Pud?


Dear Paula,

I never search the Internet. At least, not for Ask Pud answers. All the answers on Ask Pud are original, based on my own knowledge, experience, and intuition.

That said, I was curious about your request, having never heard of the song before.

Here it is. Holy crap, I can see why you were traumatized by this.

    I feel like I’ve had a religious experience.
    Hearing that Nina is on YouTube sent me right over there and I have found what I have been looking for, for nearly 20 years: NH performing “New York, New York.” Wow. Thank you.

    Oh that Nina Hagen… she’s so, Nina.

    I had forgotten that at one time, music channel actually played music and when they did, they played stuff that was a little “out there”.
