Die Antwoord's musical and visual style incorporates elements of Zef cul ture, described as modern and trashy, appropriating out-of-date, discarded cultural elements.Yo-Landi (group member) said, "It's associated with people who dress their cars up and rock gold.

Die Antwoord left Interscope Records in 2011 over a dispute concerning their upcoming album and its lead single, Fok Julle Naaiers. Vi$er explained that Interscope "kept pushing us to be more generic" in order to make more money: "If you try to make songs that other people like, your band will always be like everyone else. You always gotta do what you like. If it connects, it's a miracle, but it happened with Die Antwoord." Die Antwoord formed their own independent label, Zef Recordz, and released their new album Ten$Ion through it.
The release was in association with the Good Smile Company (a Japanese company that is also making Die Antwoord toys), and Downtown Records N.Y.C., which is handling the marketing and distribution for the record worldwide. Die Antwoord released another single entitled "XP€N$IV $H1T" on 31 July 2012
Lady Gaga wanted Die Antwood to perform with her on tour ....she was upset and couldn't fathom that this band did not want to perform with her ... They wete just picking on Gaga, they are picking on the entire music industry. When she asked them to open for her on tour... they didn't just turn her down created a parody video about Lady Gaga.
They said: 'lady… even tho u r ‘larger’ than us… we still cooler than u
