After moving to West Berlin in 1976, she formed the Nina Hagen Band and signed with CBS Records. The band released two albums before Hagen decided to pursue her career as a solo artist.
In 1982, she signed with CBS Records and released her first solo album NunSexMonkRock. She released two more records on the label–the Giorgio Moroder-produced Fearless (1983) and Nina Hagen in Ekstasy (1985). Her contract with the label expired in 1986 and was not renewed.
She remained popular making tours and appearances on TV shows. In 1987, the single “Punk Wedding” was released and in 1988 Hagen wrote her autobiography Ich bin ein Berliner.
