"Vom Himmel hoch" is a song by German electronic band Kraftwerk from album Kraftwerk, which was released in November 1970.

The song begins with distant-sounding drones that develop into Doppler effect sweeps as the keyboards begin to mimic the sound of falling bombs. Eventually, a very coarse rock groove emerges (triggered by the first beats of Dinger's drums), that quickens in tempo and, after a brief sonic interruption, reaches an explosive finale.
