Der nette Mann (German for "The nice man") is the debut album by German rock band Böhse Onkelz. It was released in 1984. Der nette Mann is considered the first album of the German skinhead subculture.

Six of its 14 tracks are deemed to either promote violence, Nazi-ideology or pornography by the German Federal Department for Media Harmful to Young Persons. Therefore, not only the whole album is put on the 'index' (which means, it is not to be sold to minors, not to be put on public display, not to be advertised). Shortly after the 'indexing', the album was additionally embargoed due to purported "glorification of violence" in its lyrics, making it altogether illegal to sell the album in Germany. As of today, this decision ceased to come into effect, the indexing still stands.

Original copies of the album (2,000 were sold) are regarded as rarities and have a value of more than €350.

On 28 December 2020, the album was officially reissued for the first time as part of the group's Onkelz: 40 Jahre boxset, albeit omitting the tracks "Frankreich '84", "Fussball + Gewalt" and "Dr. Martens Beat", after the Onkelz lobbied to have the album removed from the Index.

Böhse Onkelz (German pronunciation: [ˈbøːzə ˈʔɔŋkl̩ts]), sensational spelling of böse Onkel (German for "evil uncles") is a German rock band formed in Frankfurt in 1980. The band reunited in 2014. Despite mass-media criticism concerning their past as skinheads, several of their later records topped the German album charts (selling over 5,338,000 records and 425,000 videos or DVDs). E.I.N.S. was their most successful album, with over 510,000 copies sold.
