Additional notes
At first, they were known under the names Avenger and Vortex before settling with Tankard in 1983. The band chose their name after looking through a dictionary and seeing a word defined as "beer mug."

In the early days of the band, Gerre used to play bass and Frank Thorwarth was the singer. Later, they switched their roles.

In 1994 the band created a side-project called Tankwart (German for "gas station attendant") with metal/punk covers of schlager and other German-language songs. They released two albums:

1994 - "Aufgetankt"
1. Liebesspieler (Die Toten Hosen cover)
2. Pogo in Togo (United Balls cover)
3. Hurra, hurra, die Schule brennt (Extrabreit cover)
4. Herr D. (Westernhagen cover)
5. Sternenhimmel (Hubert Kah cover)
6. König von Deutschland (Rio Reiser cover)
7. Elke (Die Ärzte cover)
8. Skandal im Sperrbezirk (Spider Murphy Gang cover)
9. Billiger Slogan

1996 - Himbeergeist zum Frühstück
