David Bowie memorial plaque destroyed by terrible soulless douchebags

Last month, the city of Berlin honored the late David Bowie by unveiling a plaque on the very building that he and Iggy Pop called home in the 1970s. However, German newspaper BZ reports (via Exclaim) that the plaque was recently destroyed by unknown vandals.

Police are currently investigating the crime, BZ notes. Fortunately, the company who produced the plaque made multiple copies in the event of damage or theft.

Installed at Hauptstraße 155 in the Schöneberg district of Berlin, the porcelain plaque reads (roughly translated from German), “In this house lived from 1976 to 1978 David Bowie 8.1.1947 – 10.1.2016. In this time arose the albums LowHeroes, and Lodger. They go by the Berlin Trilogy in the history of music.” The message ends with a quote from the chorus of “Heroes”, “We can be heroes, just for one day.”

If only that were true, David.
