Instances of Kriegsmarine vessels being attacked in midst of sailors playing music aboard those vessels

Everyone knows the story of how American sailors had to run for cover due to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor while playing the Star-Spangled Banner aboard the USS Nevada, but I'm curious if there were instances where German sailors were playing the German national anthem or other music aboard U-boats and warships when those vessels were attacked by British or American planes and warships, and they had to either run for cover or jump into the water?
