POST

Eric: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "the best."

Clara: (SLOW) Die beste (REGULAR) Die beste
Eric: Then comes the phrase - "band."
Clara: Band
Eric: This expression is very short and powerful. It is clear though that the poster is only talking about their own opinion. You can use any feminine noun in this way. Listen again- "band" is...
Clara: (SLOW) Band (REGULAR) Band
Eric: All together, "The best band!"
Clara: Die beste Band!

Eric: Use this expression to show you are feeling cynical.
Eric: His high school friend, Katharina, uses an expression meaning - "You always liked them!"
