Arbeid Adelt! was a Belgian new wave band formed in 1981 by frontman Marcel Vanthilt and Jan Van Roelen.Their music style is hard to define. It's a mix of absurd punk and electronical beats. "Ik sta scherp" and ""Schuld, mij treft geen …" were their first two songs.

They first got noticed on a Belgian TV show in 1982 when they performed one of their songs called "De dag dat het zonlicht …". Another Belgian singer (John Terra) had a song with the same name and allthough it wasn't a cover of his song he was offended by the lyrics.

This fuzz made them notorious among the belgian audience.A third member joined the band, Luc Van Acker, and together they produced their first EP named "jonge helden". The most famous song from this EP is "Lekker westers".

After a second album, Luc Van Acker was replaced by Willy-Willy (The scabs) and Danny Klein (Vaya con dios). After an argument with their record label, the band split. Frontman Marcel Vanthilt became a VJ for MTV.

In 1991 the band got back together, got a deal from Virgin and released a new CD. Again, this album wasn't a great success and the band split up again.The 3 members went on to write music and work for TV.
