Accept is a German heavy metal band from the town of Solingen, originally assembled by former vocalist Udo Dirkschneider, guitarist Wolf Hoffmann and bassist Peter Baltes. Though Accept did not actually exist until 1976, their beginnings can be traced back to the late 1960s when Dirkschneider formed the local band Band X. The band played an important role in the development of speed metal and Teutonic thrash metal. Their 1983 album, Balls to the Wall, subsequently became their most successful release, featuring its well-known hit of the same title. To date, Accept has released thirteen studio albums, three live albums, six compilation albums, two EPs and two video albums.
