Several bands are called Genghis Khan. 1) Genghis Khan was a former name of NWOBHM band Tokyo Blade. Under this name they released an EP Double Dealin (1983). 2) Genghis Khan, known as Dschinghis Khan back home in Germany, was part of the 'Neue Deutsche Welle' (New German Wave) genre of popular music of the 1970s and 1980s. Inspired by how well Boney M went with its 1978 hit Rasputin, German producer Ralph Seigel decided to form a band that shared the same hallmarks - extravagent costumes, a pernacious disco beat, synthesizers, and lyrics concerned with people and events historical.
