Bap (often stylized as BAP) is a German rock group. With ten albums reaching the number one in the German record charts, Bap is one of the most successful rock acts in their home country.
Nearly all of Bap's lyrics are written in Kölsch, the dialect of Cologne. Niedecken's most prominent musical influences, especially early in his career, were Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, and the Rolling Stones.
The group was founded in 1976 under the name Wolfgang Niedecken's Bap in Cologne, Germany by Wolfgang Niedecken and Hans Heres. In 1981 they released their most famous song Verdamp lang her (in English: 'damn long ago'), in which Niedecken describes regrets he has about his relationship with his then recently deceased father ("Bap" is Kölsch for dad, derived from Papa).
