BBC DJ John Peel in particular is largely credited with spreading the reputation of krautrock outside of the German-speaking world.

     The term krautrock was originally a humorous one coined by the UK music press (such as New Musical Express and Melody Maker), where krautrock found an early and enthusiastic underground following. The term derives from the ethnic slur "kraut", and its use by the music press was inspired by a track from Amon Düül's " Psychedelic Underground" titled "Mama Düül und Ihre Sauerkrautband Spielt Auf" ('Mama Düül and her Sauerkrautband Start Up.').

    Typical bands dubbed krautrock in the 1970s included Tangerine Dream, Faust, Can, Amon Düül II, Ash Ra Tempel and others associated with the celebrated Cologne-based producers and engineers Dieter Dierks and Conny Plank, such as Neu!, Kraftwerk and Cluster.
