The official title of "Deutschland Ueber Alles" is "Das Deutshland Lied", or "The Germany Song". Not as catchy a title as the opening line of the refrain that most people think is the title, but that's the way it is. I imagine that if you said "The Germany Song" to people outside of Central Europe, most would have no idea of what you were talking about.
It is an inspiring tune, which is probably why today's democratic and European-focused Germany has kept it as the national anthem, though the most embarrassing stanza was officially dropped at its adoption as the national song. Right-wing extremists will sing that now banned stanza at their gatherings, just to tweak the noses of most decent folks in the Federal Republic.
