I think the modern vernacular says the song is the bomb. (Lied and Hammer are capitalized in German). —Stephen (Disc) 19:13, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

Erm, yeah I capitalized them. Anyway, I've seen both German hammer and Hammer, so I think they really do mean noun and adjective. I'm not a German youth (I can't imagine my uncle to say it lol), so I can't really tell, though. 81.68.255.36 22:29, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

No, the ones spelled hammer are just misspellings. Adjectives take special adjectival suffixes, so the only way hammer could be an adjective would be if the basic word were "hamm" (it’s not). There are Germans who don’t bother to type correctly just as there are Americans who use "i" and "u" as pronouns. —Stephen (Disc) 01:59, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

Roger. Kinda stupid of me not to think about the suffixes, yeah. 81.68.255.36 17:03, 2 September 2010 (UTC)
