Rammstein (German pronunciation:[amtan]) is a German Neue Deutsche Hrte band from Berlin, formed in 1994.[3]
The band consists of members Till Lindemann (lead vocals), Richard Z. Kruspe (lead guitar and backing vocals),
Paul H. Landers (rhythm guitar, backing vocals), Oliver "Ollie" Riedel (bass guitar), Christoph "Doom" Schneider
(drums and electronic percussion) and Christian "Flake" Lorenz (keyboards). They are widely accepted as part of the
Neue Deutsche Hrte scene, alongside bands such as Oomph!, Eisbrecher, and Die Krupps. Their songs are usually
in German, but they have also performed songs entirely or partially in other languages such as English, Spanish,
French and Russian.[4] As of 2009, they have sold over 15 million records worldwide.[5] Rammstein's entire
catalogue is published by Universal Music Group. Since their formation in 1994, Rammstein has had no changes in
their band line-up nor have any members left the band.
Rammstein takes their name indirectly from the German town of Ramstein-Miesenbach, the site of the flight show
disaster on 28 August 1988. The band's signature song, "Rammstein", is a commemoration of the disaster. In a short
period before the band became well known, they performed using the name "Rammstein-Flugschau" (literally
meaning "Rammstein-Flightshow").

History

Herzeleid (19951997)
Rammstein began to record their first studio album entitled Herzeleid in March 1995 with producer Jacob Hellner.[6]
They released their first single "Du Riechst So Gut" on 17 August and released the album on 24 September 1995.
Later that year, they toured with Clawfinger in Warsaw and Prague. Rammstein headlined a tour of their own
through Germany from 2 December to 22 December consisting of 17 shows which helped to boost the band's
popularity. They then went on several tours throughout early 1996, releasing their second single entitled "Seemann"
on 8 January 1996.
On 27 March, Rammstein performed on MTV's Hanging Out in London; their first performance in the UK.
Rammstein's first major boost in popularity outside Germany came when music director Trent Reznor chose two
Rammstein songs, "Heirate mich" and "Rammstein", for David Lynch's film Lost Highway. The soundtrack for the
film was released in the US in late 1996 and later throughout Europe in April 1997.
Rammstein then went on to tour through Germany, Austria and Switzerland from September to October 1996,
performing an anniversary concert on 27 September called "100 years of Rammstein". Guests to the concert included
Moby, Bobo and The Berlin Session Orchestra, Berlin director Gert Hof was responsible for the light show.

Sehnsucht and Live aus Berlin (late 19962000)


Rammstein started recording Sehnsucht in November 1996 at the Temple Studios in Malta.[7] The album was again
produced by Jacob Hellner. "Engel", the first single off of the album, was released on 1 April 1997 and reached gold
status in Germany on 23 May. This prompted the release of a fan edition of the single, named Engel - Fan Edition.
This contained two previously unreleased songs, "Feuerrder" and "Wilder Wein". Release of the second single from
the album Sehnsucht was "Du hast", which hit the German single charts August 1997 at number 5. Rammstein then
continued touring in the summer whilst Sehnsucht was released on 22 August 1997. The album reached number 1 in
Germany after only two weeks in the charts. Simultaneously, Herzeleid and both the singles off Sehnsucht ("Du
hast" and "Engel") were in the Top 20 of the German charts. Rammstein continued to headline sold out shows
throughout Europe in September, October. On 5 December 1997, they embarked on their first tour of the United
States with KMFDM.
On 2223 August 1998, Rammstein played to over 17,000 fans at the Wuhlheide in Berlin; the biggest show the
band had played there up to that date. Supporting acts were Danzig, Nina Hagen, Joachim Witt and Alaska. The
show was professionally filmed, intended to be released on their upcoming live DVD, Live aus Berlin.
Rammstein embarked on a live tour with Korn, Ice Cube, Orgy and Limp Bizkit called the Family Values tour in
September through to late October 1998. To further continue their success in the US, Sehnsucht received Gold record
status on 2 November.
The band was nominated at the MTV European Music Awards for Best Rock Act and performed "Du hast" live on 12
November that year.
Rammstein had further success in 1999, starting off the year in February with a nomination for Best Metal
Performance at the 42nd-annual Grammy Awards. A year after it was filmed, the Live aus Berlin concert was
released on CD on 30 August 1999, with a limited edition double CD also available. Two weeks after it was
released, Live aus Berlin went to number one in the German Album Charts. On 13 September and 26 November
1999 the video and DVD versions of the concert were released respectively.

Mutter (20002002)
The recording of Rammstein's album Mutter took place in the south of France in May and June 2000, and it was
mixed in Stockholm in October. During Christmas 2000, Rammstein released an MP3 of "Links 2-3-4" as a taster for
their new album. Richard also wrapped a thread of his own hair onto the G string of his guitar just for this album, he
said "It gave it a certain sound".
2001 was a busy year for Rammstein, starting in January and February with the band playing the Big Day Out
festival in Australia and New Zealand. January also heralded the shooting of the video for their upcoming single,
"Sonne", recorded in Potsdam at Babelsberger Filmstudios from 13 to 15 January 2001. The video was released on
29 January 2001. The single for "Sonne" was released on 12 February 2001 in Europe, featuring an instrumental
version of the song, two remixes by Clawfinger and "Adios" from the upcoming album.
Mutter was released on 2 April 2001, sparking another Rammstein tour through Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
On 14 May, the second single off the album, "Links 2 3 4", was released, along with a video of the single on 18 May.
After a tour throughout Europe in June, the band then toured the U.S., Canada and Mexico from June to August
2001.
"Ich will", the third single from the album, was released on 10 September 2001 and a Tour edition of the Mutter
album (the cover of which is red)[8] was released, featuring alternative artwork and live versions of "Ich will", "Links
2 3 4", "Sonne" and "Spieluhr". From 8 to 12 January 2002, Rammstein traveled to Prague to participate in a minor
scene for the film xXx. The band is seen in the opening scene, performing their song "Feuer frei!" in a concert.
"Feuer frei!" was released across Europe as the first single from the xXx soundtrack on 14 October 2002. Rammstein
released two remixes of the song. Furthermore, the single's track listing included "Du hast" and "Bck dich" cover
versions by Battery. The video for the single was edited by Rob Cohen, which contains part Rammstein performance
at the beginning of the film and part snippets from the film itself.

Reise, Reise (20032005)


Rammstein recorded Reise, Reise ("travel, travel") at the El Cortijo studio in southern Spain in November and
December 2003, it was mixed at Toytown studio in Stockholm, Sweden in April and May 2004. The first single from
the album was "Mein Teil", released on 26 July 2004. The video was shot in the Arena, in the Treptow district of
Berlin. Outdoor shooting took place at the Deutsche Oper (Opera House) U-Bahn station on Bismarckstrasse. The
director was Zoran Bihac, who also filmed the "Links 2 3 4" video. The video for "Amerika" was filmed on 67
August 2004 in the ruins of the former cement works in Rdersdorf near Berlin, Germany under the direction of Jrn
Heitmann (who also directed the "Ich will" video, among others). The space suits for the moon scenes were
borrowed from Hollywood and 240 tons of ash were needed to create the moon landscape. The video premiered on
20 August 2004.
The second single from Reise, Reise was "Amerika", released on 13 September 2004. With the album released on 27
September, it went straight to top 10 charts throughout Europe. According to the Billboard charts, Rammstein were
now the most successful German-language band of all time. Rammstein then toured Germany through November
and some of December 2004, releasing the single "Ohne dich" on 22 November.
In February 2005, Rammstein toured Europe again. By 28 February 2005, Rammstein had played 21 concerts in
front of more than 200,000 spectators in ten countries. It was on this tour that the band was faced with several
lawsuits resulting from severe fire breathing accidents involving audience members. "Keine Lust" was the fourth
single released from Reise, Reise on 28 February 2005.
From 27 May to 30 July 2005, Rammstein played festivals across Europe. Footage from these concerts eventually
ended up on Rammstein's live DVD Vlkerball, released in November 2006.
Rammstein 4

Rosenrot and Vlkerball (20052006)


In August 2005, Rammstein revealed the name of their next studio album: Rosenrot. Their first single from the
album, "Benzin", was released on 5 October 2005, with its video premiere on 16 September 2005. Rosenrot was
released worldwide on 28 October 2005. Directly following the release, the album continued the success of its
predecessor, Reise, Reise, placing on top 10 charts in 20 countries.
16 December 2005 marked the release of the title track on Rosenrot. The video for "Mann gegen Mann" was released
on 6 February 2006, with the single being released on 3 March. On 19 February 2006, Rammstein had an asteroid
named after them, 110393 Rammstein.
On 17 November the first Rammstein Live DVD since Live aus Berlin from 1998 was released. Vlkerball shows
concert-performances by the band in England, France, Japan and Russia. The Special Edition is extended by a
second DVD, which contains the documentaries "Anaconda in the net" by Mathilde Bonnefoy and the "Making of
the album Reise, Reise" by Rammstein guitarist Paul Landers. The limited edition was released as a large
black-and-white photo-book with photos by Frederic Batier, who had accompanied the band through their recent
tours. The photo-book edition contains two DVDs and two live albums.

Liebe ist fr alle da & tour (20072011)


The band took a time out in 2006, and began work again in 2007. In an interview with German rapper Bushido (who
contributed the "Electro Ghetto remix" of "Amerika") on 21January2007, Bushido reported recording a song with
Rammstein, called "Vergiss uns nicht" ("Don't forget us"). In this interview, Bushido also mentioned that he was
unsure whether it would be on their "Best of" album or not. This was the first mention of a "Best of" album, or the
new album all together. On May6, Rammstein announced European tour dates on their website.[9] [10] In addition,
keyboardist Christian "Flake" Lorenz confirmed this in an interview with Metal Hammer Germany in November,
stating that they would have most likely released a new album in 2008. The band did not tour during 2007 due to
album production. Their website confirmed work on a new album, but no word of a "Best of" album has yet been
mentioned. In January 2008, guitarist Richard Kruspe confirmed on the Talking Metal Podcast that Rammstein was
recording an album as they spoke, during that same interview he confirmed a "big world tour" following the next
album to contain U.S. dates.
On 4November, the band finished the pre-production in Berlin and went to the Henson Studio in LA. After 7
intensive weeks, they had recorded the drums, guitars and most of the vocals.
Two very short (less than two minutes) "making of" videos have been released during the development of the album.
One video, released on the band's website, shows drummer Christoph "Doom" Schneider recording drums for one of
the tracks ("Mehr"), and the second, released on the band's MySpace page, features keyboardist Flake Lorenz
practicing notes for another track.
The June '09 release of Metal Hammer featured an interview with Rammstein-manager Emanuel Fialik. In regard to
the upcoming album Fialik quoted "Musically, it has the force of Mutter while the beauty of the melodies of
Sehnsucht Just so it has fixed in my ears." and also that it will feature two soft ballads and the rest will be "hard as
a rock". He even went as far to say that the disk is the biggest surprise since the birth of his son. The interview
concluded with Fialik stating "It is musically the best Album, which until now has Rammstein recorded!"[11]
In July 2009, the title track "Liebe ist fr alle da" leaked onto the internet, along with promotional materials. This has
led Universal Music to take action against certain fan sites.[12] [13]
It was confirmed in August 2009 that the new album will have 11 tracks,[14] and mixing of the album which was
taking place in Stockholm - has been completed.[15] On September1,2009, it was confirmed on the band's website
that "Pussy" will be the first single from the new album. On the same day, The Gauntlet posted a promotional video
for it. The video also confirmed the new album title, Liebe ist fr alle da. Later, the title was confirmed again in an
interview with Paul Landers for RockOne magazine.
Rammstein 5

The music video for "Pussy" was released on September16,2009, at 20:30 GMT, released especially for the adult
website Visit-x.[16] The video contains graphic scenes of male and female nudity as well as women engaging in
sexual activity with the band members, although the actual sex scenes were performed by body doubles.[17] The
women featured in the video are German porn stars.[18] Metal Hammer released an edited version of the video onto
their website.[19]
"Ich tu dir weh" has been confirmed as the second single off the album by Paul and Flake, in an interview for Radio
Eins. Although censorship of the song in Germany prohibits any advertisement, broadcast or public display, the
video to "Ich tu dir weh" was released on December21,2009 on the adult website Visit-x, just like the video to
"Pussy", after advertisement on the band's official German website; it depicts the band on stage in a similar
configuration as the one on their 2009/10 tour. Any references to the video on the official website have since been
deleted. In Europe, the single has been released on January 15, 2010, and in the U.S. on January19,2010.[20] Like
the video "Pussy" also this video was directed by Jonas kerlund.
On Friday April 23, 2010, Rammstein released their video "Haifisch". Unlike the video for Ich tu dir weh, it contains
more of a storyline rather than a performance.[21] The single was released during May and June 2010.[22]
As part of their European summer tour, Rammstein performed at the 2010 Rock AM Ring Festival on 46
June2010.[23] They also headlined several shows across Europe on the Sonisphere Festival, including their first ever
outdoor UK performance at Knebworth Park, performing the day before Iron Maiden. On Sunday July 18, 2010,
Rammstein played in front of more than 130,000 people in Quebec City on the Plains of Abraham as the closing
show for the Festival d't de Qubec. It was their first North American appearance in 9 years.
The band announced that their last tour dates of 2010 were to be in the Americas. After several South American
dates, the band returned to the United States for a single show at the famous Madison Square Garden in New York
City - their first US show in over nine years, it is rumored that tickets sold out in as little as fifteen minutes. They
also performed at Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada on December 9. This concert also sold out within the first hour of
tickets going on sale, indicating a high demand to see Rammstein in North America. The band then played at Big
Day Out 2011 from January 21 to February 6 in New Zealand and Australia. The band also visited South Africa for
the first time in 2011 and played two concerts at Cape Town and Johannesburg.
Rammstein bassist Oliver Riedel stated in an interview in Montreal with Musik Universe that in April2011, the band
will release the first volume of their "Greatest Hits" along with unreleased tracks. In the same interview he also
stated there will be a new live DVD coming out, with concert footage from the sold out New York and Montreal
concerts.[24]
On February 16, 2011, Rammstein announced that after the massive success of their sold out Madison Square
Garden show on December 11, 2010 they would be touring North America after 10 years, making stops in New
Jersey (East Rutherford) Izod Center, Montreal Bell Centre, Toronto Air Canada Centre, Chicago Allstate Arena,
Edmonton Rexall Place, Seattle Tacoma Dome, San Francisco (Oakland) Oracle Arena, Los Angeles The Forum
(Inglewood), and Las Vegas Thomas and Mack Center, Mexico City's Palacio de los Deportes, Guadalajara's Arena
VFG, and Monterey's Auditorio Banamex to a total of six U.S dates, three Canadian dates, and four Mexican dates.
Tickets went on sale February 25 and 26 to great response, with many shows completely selling out, making this tour
a complete success. On April 20, 2011 the band also won the Revolver Golden God Award for Best Live Band, their
first U.S award.

Best Of Album (2011Present)


In a recent interview Rammstein guitarist Richard Kruspe stated that the band is going to release a Greatest Hits
album in September 2011. It will contain two previously unreleased tracks from the LIFAD recording sessions. A
European tour is supposed to kick off soon thereafter. The only confirmed date for the European continent so far is
on November 11, 2011 at the O2 Arena in Prague, Czech Republic. In the same interview Kruspe also said that they
are once again planning on returning to North America for a 21 date tour on May 2012.
Rammstein 6

The band confirmed the shooting of a new video in May, for a new song called Mein Land.[25] In June 6th, the song
was leaked into the Internet.

Musical style and influences


Although Rammstein is often generalized as Neue Deutsche Hrte, their music spans a variety of related styles,
including heavy metal, industrial music, and groove metal. The band is primarily influenced by Oomph! (who were
strongly influenced by groove metal acts like Prong) and the image and the deep voice of Milan Fras of Laibach.
The band has a flair for costumes of all sorts, both in live shows and in videos. In the "Keine Lust" video, all
members of the band except Flake were dressed in fat suits. In the "Amerika" video, all members of the band wore
space suits. Live, the band experiments even more with costumes. In the Vlkerball concert, among others, Till
changed costumes between songs, dressed accordingly for each. For example, in "Mein Teil", he was dressed as a
butcher, in "Reise, Reise", as a sailor. The rest of the band each wore their own preferred costume, but none as
outlandish or themed as Till's.
Rammstein's style has tended to divide critics, some of whom have responded with memorable comments. Jam
Showbiz (April 2001) described Mutter as "music to invade Poland to". New Zealand's Southland Times (December
17, 1999) suggested that Till Lindemann's "booming, sub-sonic voice" would send "the peasants fleeing into their
barns and bolting their doors", while the New York Times (January 9, 2005) commented that on the stage, "Mr.
Lindemann gave off an air of such brute masculinity and barely contained violence that it seemed that he could have
reached into the crowd, snatched up a fan, and bitten off his head." Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic
commented that "their blend of industrial noise, grinding metal guitars, and operatic vocals is staggeringly
powerful."[26] "We just push boundaries", said Till Lindemann in an interview with rock magazine Kerrang!. "We
can't help it if people don't like those boundaries being pushed."

Lyrics
Nearly all of Rammstein's songs are in German. However, the
band has recorded English songs as well as cover of the song
"Stripped" (Depeche Mode). In addition, the songs "Amerika",
"Stirb nicht vor mir//Don't Die Before I Do," and "Pussy" contain
lyrics in English. The song "Moskau" ("Moscow") contains a
chorus in Russian. "Te quiero puta!" is entirely in Spanish. Oliver
Riedel commented that, "German language suits heavy metal
music. French might be the language of love, but German is the
language of anger."[27]

The lyrics of Rammstein and above all their utterance by singer


Till Lindemann are an essential element of music and shape the
perception by fans and a wider public. Among other things that are
often very controversial, Rammstein also uses lyrics of classical
Vocalist Till Lindemann writes most of Rammstein
German literature, e.g. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's famous lyrics.
poems Der Erlknig (1778) and Das Heidenrslein (1771) for the
songs "Dalai Lama" and "Rosenrot", respectively.[28]

Many of their songs are inspired by real life events. These songs include Rammstein (Ramstein airshow disaster),
Mein Teil (The Meiwes Case), Zerstren (The Iraq War), Wiener Blut (Fritzl case), and Donaukinder (2000 Baia
Mare cyanide spill).
Wordplay is a fundamental component of Rammstein's lyrics. In many instances, the lyrics are phrased such that
they can be interpreted in several ways. The song "Du hast", for example, is a play on German marriage vows (Willst
Rammstein 7

Du, bis der Tod euch scheidet, treu ihr sein fr alle Tage? "Will you, until Death separates you, be faithful to her
for the rest of your days?"). In the song, the traditional affirmative response, Ja ("Yes"), is replaced by its negation
Nein ("No"). The final repetition of this line further perverts the meaning of the original vows through a minor
change in the wording Willst Du, bis zum Tod der Scheide ... (Will you, until the Death of the vagina ...). The song
starts, in fact, with a play on words: Du... Du hast... Du hast mich... meaning "You have me". This line is often
mistaken for "You hate me", because in German, there is only a very subtle (if any) distinction (hast may be
pronounced slightly softer than hasst) between the pronunciation of Du hasst which means "you hate" and Du hast
which means "you have". The pun is later resolved as the line is completed; Du hast mich gefragt ("You [have]
asked me"). Confusingly, the band did also make an English version of the song named "You Hate" which was not
translated directly from "Du hast". While many arguments are made about "Du hast", it is known that Rammstein
used this wording to mislead and create humour in the song, causing many non-native speakers of German to be
confused.

Live performances
Rammstein has achieved particular fame for its hugely over-the-top stage show, using so many pyrotechnics that
fans eventually coined the motto "Other bands play, Rammstein burns!" (a quip at Manowar's song "Kings of
Metal", which states, "other bands play, Manowar kills"). After an accident in the Arena in Berlin where some
burning decoration parts fell on the audience (27 September 1996)[29] the band used professionals to handle the
pyrotechnics; Lindemann himself is now a licensed pyrotechnician who spends entire songs engulfed head-to-toe in
flames. He has suffered multiple burns on his ears, hair and arms.
The heat is so intense that on occasion, people have been carried
out of Rammstein concerts suffering from heat exhaustion, and
lighting gantries have been seen glowing red-hot from repeated
fireball hits. The variety of the pyrotechnics can be seen in a
recent concert playlist, which includes such items as
"Lycopodium Masks", "Glitterburst Truss", "Pyrostrobes",
"Comets", "Flash Trays" and "Mortar Hits".

The band's costumes are equally outlandish. During the Reise,


Reise tour, they wore Lederhosen, corsets and vague military

group kept to the themes of the album artwork and descended
onto the stage from a giant uterus while wearing diapers.
Since the Mutter-Tour, starting in 2001, Rammstein have worked with stage designer Roy Bennett, who helped the
band in developing the look of the stages. With the Reise, Reise-Tour (2004/2005), the band began using a two-level
stage, with half the band playing the lower level, as the other half was placed at the upper. At this tour, the upper
level rose over 2 meters above the stage floor, and had an oval entrance, just beneath the drums. At both sides of the
upper level, a special lift made it possible for the bandmembers to access both stage levels. On the LIFAD-Tour
(starting 2009), the new stage still had a two-level design. This time however, the upper level only had about half the
height as on the previous tour. Stage entrance was possible by a hydraulic ramp in the middle of the stage floor. At
each end of the upper level, stairs are placed in order to gain access to both levels. This tour does not only include
lots of pyrotechnics, but also a massive lighting show, for example the famous band logo-cross as big lamps and four
enormous collapsible towers, forming the industrial backdrop of the set, capable of doing different lighting effects.
According to Kruspe, the on-stage wackiness is entirely deliberate (Rammstein's motto according to Schneider is:
"Do your own thing. And overdo it!"). The aim is to get people's attention and have fun at the same time: "You have
to understand that 99 percent of the people don't understand the lyrics, so you have to come up with something to
keep the drama in the show. We have to do something. We like to have a show; we like to play with fire. We do have
Rammstein 8

a sense of humour. We do laugh about it; we have fun... but we're not Spinal Tap. We take the music and the lyrics
seriously. It's a combination of humour, theater and our East German culture, you know?"[30]
Their onstage antics have also led them to trouble. During their stint on the American Family Values Tour 1998,
alongside acts such as rapper Ice Cube, Korn, Limp Bizkit and Orgy, the band was arrested for indecency. In one of
the more infamous moments, Rammstein's vocalist, Till Lindemann engaged in simulated sodomy with the
keyboardist, Christian 'Flake' Lorenz, during their performance of "Bck dich" in Worcester, Massachusetts. They
were subsequently arrested and fined $25 and spent one night in jail.[31] [32] The band attempted to appeal the fine,
and spent more in legal fees and court fees than the $25 fine.

Covers and adaptations


Rammstein's songs have been covered by a number of other artists, These include:
"Engel" has been covered by several artists:
The group Gregorian reworked it as a Gregorian chant for their album The Dark Side.
German singer Hildegard Knef recorded a cover of the song.
Belgian girls choir Scala & Kolacny Brothers recorded a very quiet, brooding version, contrary to the original.
Chilean aggrotech/industrial metal band Vigilante covered it on their 2008 remix album.
An obscure Engel parody called Trffelschwein became available over the popular p2p networks of the 1990s.
The song is often credited to be the work of one of two bands; Knorkator, or Urinstein, although no reliable
source has been provided to support either claim. The song is generally thought to be from the album
"Angepisst" by Urinstein.
"Mein Herz brennt": German composer Torsten Rasch has composed a classical symphonic song-cycle entitled
"Mein Herz brennt" ("My heart burns"), based on the music of Rammstein, produced by Sven Helbig for
Deutsche Grammophon.
"Seemann": by Apocalyptica & Nina Hagen. This cover impressed Rammstein so much that they took
Apocalyptica as co-headliner on tour with them in Spring 2005, and invited the band on stage to perform "Ohne
dich" ("Without you") and "Mein Herz brennt" ("My Heart burns") together. The "Benzin" single also featured a
remix of the song, called "Kerosiini" by Apocalyptica.
"Ohne dich": remixed (and new vocals added)[33] by Laibach
"Weies Fleisch": by the German death metal band Debauchery, who covered the song for their Back In Blood
album.
"Rammstein": a parody by German radio DJ duo Kai & Baltzi renamed "Rindfleisch" aired on Delta Radio
around 2001 and was later available as download.
"Mein Teil": a bluegrass version appears as a bonus track on the band Hayseed Dixie's 2007 album Weapons of
Grass Destruction.
"Mein Teil": was also covered by the German jazz metal band Panzerballet on their album Hat Genossen von
Abba Zappa as well as by the Pakistani Industrial Metal band Black Warrant in one of their early albums.
"Ein Lied": German pop singer Nena (author of "99 Luftballons" ("99 Air Balloons")) covered the song on her
covers-album Cover Me.
A Norwegian tribute band called Rammsund plays Rammstein's songs with lyrics translated into New Norwegian.
"Du Hast": is also played by the Turkish band maNga (band) and the Industrial Metal band named Black Warrant
originating from Pakistan.
Rammstein have also done covers themselves, including "Stripped" by Depeche Mode and "Das Model" by
Kraftwerk.
Till Lindemann appears as a guest singer on the Apocalyptica album Worlds Collide. They took on David Bowie's
song "Heroes", which was also released in German as "Helden". Lindemann sings the German version, making his
song the only German-language song on Worlds Collide.[34]

Rammstein singles traditionally also have a great quantity of remixes, particularly from Clawfinger.

Controversies

Imagery
The New York Times described Rammstein's music as a "powerful strain of
brutally intense rock... bringing gale-force music and spectacular theatrics
together".[35] The members have not been shy about courting controversy and
have periodically attracted condemnation from morality campaigners. Till and
Flake's stage act earned them a night in jail in June 1999 after a
liquid-ejecting dildo was used in a concert in Worcester, Massachusetts. Back
home in Germany, the band has faced repeated accusations of fascist
sympathies because of the dark and sometimes militaristic imagery of their
videos and concerts, including the use of excerpts from the film Olympia by
Leni Riefenstahl in the video for the Depeche Mode cover "Stripped". Their
The original Herzeleid album cover.
cover of their debut album Herzeleid, released in Germany in 1995, showed
the band members bare-chested in a style that resembled Strength Through
Joy in the eyes of some critics, who accused the band of trying to sell themselves as "poster boys for the Master
Race".[36] Rammstein have vigorously denied this and said that they want nothing to do with politics or supremacy
of any kind. Christian "Flake" Lorenz, annoyed by the claim, has remarked that it is just a photo, and should be
understood as such. Herzeleid has since been given a different cover in North America, depicting the band members'
faces. The clip for the song Amerika shows people from different nationalities throughout the video and Rammstein
members taking photographs with them at the end of the clip.

The song "Links 2-3-4" (Links being German for "left") was written as a riposte to these claims. According to
Kruspe, it means, "'My heart beats on the left, two, three, four'. It's simple. If you want to put us in a political
category, we're on the left side, and that's the reason we made the song".[37] On the other hand, this is also an allusion
to a military marching cadence since "Links-2-3-4" is typically heard during marching practice in the German army
with "links" referring to the left foot. The song is also a reference to the saying "the heart beats left", repeatedly used
by Oskar Lafontaine, a famous former member of the SPD (Social Democratic Party of Germany), who was the
co-chairman of the Left Party (Die Linke), and almost the title of a book written by him (the title is Das Herz schlgt
links instead of Mein Herz schlgt links "The heart beats left" instead of "My Heart beats left").[38] [39]
According to the German online music magazine[40] Rammstein, through this song, positioned themselves on the
side of Oskar Lafontaine. They write:[41]
Rammstein binden den Lafontaine-Spruch "Mein Herz schlgt links" in ihren Text ein und zitieren eine
Zeile aus einem alten Hannes Wader-Arbeitersong ("Links, zwo, drei, vier; links, zwo, drei, vier; wo
dein Platz Genosse ist, reih Dich ein in die Arbeitereinheitsfront, wenn Du auch ein Arbeiter bist").
(Rammstein embed the Lafontaine saying My heart beats left into their lyric and cite a line of an old
Hannes Wader workers' song ("Left, 2, 3, 4; left 2, 3, 4; where your place is comrade, line up into the
Workers' United Front, if you are a worker").)
Christian "Flake" Lorenz recently stated in an online chat that the song was created to show that the band could write
a harsh, evil, military-sounding song without being Nazis.[42]

Videos
In October 2004, the video for "Mein Teil" ("My part") caused considerable controversy in Germany when it was
released. It takes a darkly comic view of the Armin Meiwes cannibalism case, showing a cross dressed Schneider
holding the other five band members on a leash and rolling around in mud. The controversy did nothing to stop the
single rising to No. 2 in the German charts. Meiwes (who was convicted of manslaughter in 2004, then retried in
2006 and found guilty of murder)[43] brought suit in January 2006 against the band for infringement of rights to the
story.
The band's own views of its image are sanguine: "We like being on the fringes of bad taste", according to Paul H.
Landers, while Christian "Flake" Lorenz comments "The controversy is fun, like stealing forbidden fruit. But it
serves a purpose. We like audiences to grapple with our music, and people have become more receptive".[44]
The video for "Mann gegen Mann" ("Man against Man") from their fifth studio album Rosenrot may have caused
some controversy, as most of the band members are naked in the video. The lead singer Till Lindemann is wearing
what can best be described as "latex underwear". In addition, there are multiple naked men in the video, with clearly
visible buttocks, though genitalia could be seen at 32 seconds into the video on Christian "Flake" Lorenz through the
arm of the guitarist (Richard Z. Kruspe) and below the keyboard. The video has been played uncensored on MTV in
Europe. The video has been rated FSK 16 in Germany and therefore can be played on television only after 10 PM. It
is the second Rammstein video after "Stripped" which includes nudity.
The video for "Pussy" was released September 2009. It features graphic scenes of nudity along with women
engaging in sexual activity with body doubles of the band members. It is the third Rammstein video to include
nudity.[45]

Placement on the Index


On November 5, 2009 their sixth studio album, Liebe ist fr alle da was placed on the Index of the Bundesprfstelle
fr jugendgefhrdende Medien or BPjM (Federal Department for Media Harmful to Young Persons), making it
illegal in Germany to make the album accessible to minors or display it where it can be seen by people underage,
effectively banning it from stores.[46] [47] According to the official statement of the BPjM, the depiction of lead
guitarist Richard Kruspe holding a chubby woman wearing only a mask over his knee and lifting his hand to strike
her behind has given cause for offense, as well as the lyrics to "Ich tu dir weh" which supposedly assist to spread
dangerous BDSM techniques. Furthermore, the advisory board has taken into consideration the alleged promotion of
unprotected sexual intercourse in the lyrics to "Pussy". The band, as well as several members of the German press,
reacted with astonishment to the decision. Keyboardist Christian Lorenz expressed surprise at the advisory board's
"parochial sense of art" and regretted their apparent inability to detect irony.[48] [49] On November 16, 2009 a
stripped down version of Liebe ist fr alle da was released. As of May 31, 2010, the administrative court in Cologne
has decided to waive the suspensive effect of the inclusion into the Index (case 22 L 1899/09). The German
department deleted the record from the Index on June 1 (Decision No. A 117/10).[23] On June 9, the band
announced in their official website that the original version of the album was already available at their shop and that
a release of the single Ich tu dir weh in Germany was planned in a short period of time.

Purported legal action against Apocalyptica


In early 2010, a rumor stated that Rammstein won a settlement against symphonic cello metal band Apocalyptica for
copyright infringement for the sum of 45,000. However, this information proved to be missing the point.
Rammstein settled out of court against Apocalyptica's former record label Sony Music Entertainment GmbH as the
successor of the by now defunct affiliated label Gun Records for using Rammstein's label in marketing their
(Apocalyptica's) 2007 album Worlds Collide (which featured a duet with singer Lindemann).[50] [51]

Till Lindemann (born 4 January 1963) is a German musician, actor and poet who is the frontman for the German
Neue Deutsche Hrte band Rammstein.

Biography
Till Lindemann was born in Leipzig, East Germany, but he grew up in the village of Wendisch-Rambow near
Schwerin (in East Germany). His father is Werner Lindemann and his mother, Brigitte "Gitta" Hildegard Lindemann,
was a journalist and writer until she retired. Lindemann has one sister who is six years younger. At age 11 he went to
a sports school at the Rostock Sport Club, and from 1977 to 1980 attended a boarding school. His parents divorced
in 1975. In 1978 Lindemann was a participant in the European Junior Swimming Championships in Florence, Was
shortlisted to go to 1980 Olympics in Moscow but discontinued the sport soon after. According to Lindemann, "I
never liked the sport school actually, it was very intense. But as a child you don't object." Lindemann later worked as
an apprentice carpenter, a gallery technician, a peat cutter and a basket weaver. In 1981, he apparently refused to do
his eighteen months of compulsory military service and was almost imprisoned as a result for cowardice.
In 1985, Lindemann's first daughter Nele, was born. Lindemann and Nele's mother married after she was born, but
they separated and he has raised Nele alone. Lindemann says, "I used to play drums in a punk band and we had our
studio in the house where I lived. Seven years I had been a father raising my daughter, but nowadays I'm sharing the
Till Lindemann 15

upbringing with her mother, because I'm gone for six months of the year with the band." Lindemann has a second
daughter, Marie Louise, with Anja Kseling. An interview with Richard Kruspe revealed that Till has at least four
children.

Career
Lindemann started to play drums for First Arsch, who released an
album titled Saddle Up, and played one song ("Lied von der
unruhevollen Jugend") with a punk band called Feeling B (which was
the former band of Rammstein members Paul H. Landers and Christian
"Flake" Lorenz). In the 1990s, Lindemann began to write lyrics. In
1994, the trio entered and won a contest in Berlin that allowed them to
record a four track demo professionally. Lindemann moved to Berlin.

In November 2002 Lindemann's poetry book Messer was published. It


consists of 54 poems compiled by Gert Hof, who is author of the book
Rammstein and has been the band's pyrodesigner for the last seven
years.[1]

Stage persona gauntlets

Lindemann has a powerful on-stage presence and a resonant bass


voice. One of his signature mannerisms is to partially squat and pound his fist onto his thigh to the beat of the riff;
this move is known to Rammstein fans as the "Till-Hammer". His vocals are easily recognizable due to his tendency
to roll (all) his Rs, and growl his achs.
Another attribute seen is his originality in his performances, such as setting himself on fire in the video for
"Rammstein" and his questionably obscene antics in the '98 Family Values Tour when he performed "Bck Dich".
Lindemann is also a qualified pyrotechnician; after an accident at the Treptow arena in Berlin on 27 September 1996,
where a burning stage prop fell into the audience, Rammstein began employing a professional pyrotechnical crew
and Lindemann has learned from and also trained with them. Of Lindemann, band mate Christoph Schneider says,
"Till gets burned all the time, but he likes the pain".
He has also engaged in other masochistic acts on stage. During performances of 'Sehnsucht', Lindemann bludgeons
his head with a microphone, hereby bursting a concealed packet of blood which drips and splashes down his head
and during performances of Bestrafe Mich (Punish Me), he hits himself with a Cat o' nine tails (Lindemann's
version, however, isnt as dangerous). Both of these can be seen on the Live aus Berlin DVD.[2]

As guest artist
Lindemann appeared as guest drummer on the album Hea Hoa Hoa Hea Hea Hoa by Feeling B for the song Lied
von der unruhevollen Jugend, which is in the Russian language. Years later this track was performed live at a
Rammstein gig in St. Petersburg on the 19th November 2001 during the Mutter-tour.
Lindemann provides vocals for the track Helden (a cover of Bowie's Heroes) on the Apocalyptica album Worlds
Collide.
Lindemann also sings on "Wut Will Nicht Sterben" by Die Puhdys.
Till Lindemann & Richard Kruspe covered the Aria song Shtil and released it as Schtiel.

Quotes
Music sometimes gives me a quantity of creativeness - you're
drinking another glass of wine and you're feeling even worse. Art
doesn't work without pain; art also exists for compensating pain.
When I was an adolescent, I was obsessed with having many
commercial things, cars, clothes, stupid things. Now that I have all
that, I understand that the superfluous things can turn you into a
very stupid idiot-type. In East Germany there were very few things,
but there was also a feeling of solidarity that no longer exists. Now Till Lindemann

we are up to the neck in consumption, the ego, the individualism.


Now before friendship, it is merchandise.
The rolling "R" didn't arise deliberately. It originated from itself because in that deep pitch you automatically sing
that way. I'm no musician in the actual meaning. I don't know anything about instruments. But I'm supporting our
music with my voice and lyrics well. It's a question of illustration, timbre and phonetics. We don't want to - for
heaven's sake - create a fascist-like style.
Love is like a flower; even the most beautiful kind dies.

Christoph "Doom" Schneider (born 11 May 1966) is a German musician. He is the drummer of the German Neue
Deutsche Hrte band Rammstein.

Biography

Early life
Schneider was born in 1966 in Pankow, East Berlin, East Germany. He has one sister, who is two years younger than
he.
Schneider left high school at age 16 and went on to work as a telecommunications assistant. In 1984, he served his
national service with the East German Army; He is the only member of Rammstein to have served in the military.[1]

Career
Schneider's parents wanted him to learn an instrument, so they sent him to a special school connected to a pioneering
Socialist orchestra, where he was offered the choice between trumpet, clarinet and trombone, out of which he chose
the first because it was the easiest to play. He describes himself as very talented at playing the trumpet, and after a
year he got into the orchestra and played concerts. It was here he became interested in playing the drums: he was
impressed by the equipment and kept looking over his shoulder at the drumset while playing. He told his parents he
wanted to learn to play the drums, but they weren't supportive of the idea because "they were both from the classical
world". He would go home and practice with sticks and built his own drum set with tin cans and buckets. He bought
Christoph Schneider 18

his first drumkit at age 14, after which his parents had to accept it and let him rehearse and take lessons.[2]
In 1985, Schneider quit his telecommunication job to pursue his musical ambitions by studying music at university,
but failed to get into university twice,[1] being rejected because he possessed no other musical skills such as playing
the piano. He continued to learn to play himself.[2] Schneider tried consistently from 1985 until 1990 to get into
bands as a drummer, finally being successful with Die Firma.
In 1994, he joined Richard Kruspe and Oliver Riedel in forming an early version of Rammstein. After Till
Lindemann joined the band, they entered the Berlin Senate Metrobeat contest, winning the chance to record a
professional demo with four tracks.[3] A previous band of Schneider's, Feeling B, provided two other members of
Rammstein, Paul Landers and keyboardist Christian Lorenz.
He currently endorses Sabian cymbals and Sonor drumkits.

Personal life
Schneider values his privacy, so little is known about his private life. He married Regina Gizatulina from Russia.
The nickname "Doom" comes from the video game of the same name. Schneider needed a name for the German
copyright agency, but found there were too many Christoph Schneiders already. Paul Landers suggested the name
"Doom" because they liked the game. Schneider has said that if he knew that name would be on every record he
played on he would have chosen a different one.[2]
Schneider has also claimed in an interview he was influenced by the drummer of AC/DC, Phil Rudd. His favourite
rock bands are Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Motrhead and AC/DC.[2]

Richard Zven Kruspe (born 24 June 1967) is a German musician and the lead guitarist of the German industrial
metal band Rammstein, as well as the leader of the band Emigrate. He also used to be named "Bernstein", after his
South African ex-wife Caron Bernstein. They were together for five years until separating in 2004, filed for divorce,
which was finalized in 2006, after which his name reverted to Kruspe.
Richard Z. Kruspe 20

Personal life
On 10 October 1989, before the fall of the Berlin Wall, he was riding through the subway. When he came above
ground, he found himself in the middle of a political demonstration. He was hit on the head and arrested just for
being there, and thrown in jail for six days. Once out of jail, he decided to leave East Germany. Because of the
Eastern Bloc, he entered West Germany through Hungary. When the Berlin Wall came down, he moved back east.
Rammstein was formed back in the 1990s. Richard who currently lived with Oliver and Schneider at the time, was
looking for a new band in which to create a new line of music.* He had left his first band, 'Orgasmic Death
Gimmick' in search of new band mates.
Kruspe married South African (American) actress Caron Bernstein in 1999. The ceremony was Jewish and Kruspe
composed the music for it. He took on the name Richard Kruspe-Bernstein during their marriage. Sometime in 2001
he moved from Berlin to New York where he resided to live closer to his now ex-wife Caron. They separated in
2004. His name is now back to its original "Kruspe" as the divorce was finalized.
He speaks fluent English and sings in English for Emigrate.

Khira Li Lindemann
Born on 28 February 1991, Khira Li Lindemann-Kruspe is the daughter of Rammstein's Richard Z. Kruspe. She has
the last name of "Lindemann" because her mother was previously married to Rammstein lead singer Till Lindemann.
Khira's mother kept the last name "Lindemann" when she divorced Till and later, she and Rammstein guitarist
Richard Kruspe got together and had Khira but never married and later split. This gave Khira the last name of
"Lindemann".
In 1998, Khira Li appeared in Rammstein's "Tier" performance in Live Aus Berlin. She also sang the backing vocals
for "Spieluhr" on Rammstein's 2001 album Mutter.

Merlin Besson
Born on 10 December 1992, Merlin Besson is the son of Richard Z. Kruspe.

Oliver "Ollie" Riedel (born 11 April 1971) is a German musician, notable for being the bassist for the German
Neue Deutsche Hrte band Rammstein.

Biography

Early years
Riedel was born on 11 April 1971 in Schwerin as an only child. Growing up, Oliver had relatively good relationships
with both of his parents. He attributes this to the small gap in between their ages. As a child, Oliver wasn't a good
student, but he made his way through school with the assistance of his mother. Oliver was quite shy, especially
during his teenage years, and while his friends partied at discos, he would often be found just "hanging around".

Musical career
In 1990, at the age of nineteen, Oliver began playing in a folk-fiddle/punk-rock band called The Inchtabokatables. In
1994, Riedel, Till Lindemann, Richard Z. Kruspe, and Christoph "Doom" Schneider entered and won the Berlin
Senate Metro beat contest that allowed them to record a four track demo professionally. Paul H. Landers and
Oliver Riedel 23

Christian "Flake" Lorenz would later join the band they named Rammstein.
The six released their first album, Herzeleid (Heartache) in September, 1995. Their second album, Sehnsucht
(Longing) was released in 1997, which would later become platinum. In April 2001, the album Mutter (Mother) was
released and a European tour followed, ending on 13 July 2002. It has been reported that at this time the members of
Rammstein were seriously discussing whether to continue or not in their present form. It was decided that they
should all take some time off and then reconsider whether to continue.
In 2003, Rammstein started work on the fourth album, which was to prove a turning point in Rammstein's sound and
maturity. September 2004 saw the fruits of this work in the release of Reise, Reise ("Arise, Arise").
In 2005, Rosenrot (Rose Red) was released.
Rammstein's latest album Liebe ist fr alle da (Love Is There For Everyone) was released in October, 2009.

Personal life
He has two children, one of them a girl named Emma, and is separated from her mother.
He likes photography and sports, especially skateboarding and surfing. In the making of the video for "Keine Lust,"
he mentions wanting to go snowboarding while wearing a fat suit. It has been said he is the most computer-literate
member of the band.
His character is more mature and subtle during live performances. He tends to keep crew cut and skin-bald hair
styles along with some styles of goatees. He is also the tallest member of the band, standing at 2.01 m (6'7").

Technique
Riedel is primarily a fingerstyle player, although he also uses a pick for most songs when playing live.
In certain softer songs, Ollie has been known to play with a banjo style plucking technique with his right hand to
play arpeggiated chords, such as in Seemann. He also plays the acoustic guitar introduction to "Frhling in Paris" in
live shows.

Gear
His known gear is:
Sandberg California PM
Sandberg Terrabass signature model
MusicMan Stingray (used during the early days of the band)
ESP Eclipse bass (used during the Sehnsucht tour)
Sandberg Plasmabass 4-string custom built model
Tech 21 SansAmp Bass Driver DI
Glockenklang Heart-Rock Amp
Two 8x10 Cabs
Oliver also uses selected overdrive/ fuzz pedals for songs such as Mein Teil and Rosenrot.

Quotes and interview


On the separation rumours
"We never wanted to, but after Mutter we had some difficult times because the third album is the most difficult one
and we had a lot of pressure on us. We also had our differences between the group members and everyone's
expectations were different. We took a year to rest, and after that we realized that we wanted to be together and to go
on."
On his early family life
Interviewer: Did you have a lot of problems with your parents?
Ollie: Not a lot at all. My parents are quite young, which is good. Because the age difference isn't that big, we had it
good with each other. My father and mother also liked the same music as me. We were almost more like friends than
family.
Interviewer: But of course you did tease your brothers and sisters...
Ollie: No, because I don't have any, too bad. But if I would have had them, I would definitely have teased them!

Paul H. Landers (born 9 December 1964) is a German musician, notable as a guitarist for the Neue Deutsche Hrte
band Rammstein.

Biography

Early life
Paul Landers was born in Berlin, Germany to a Russian mother. His real name was Heiko Hiersche, which he hated.
He lived in Moscow for a short time as a young child. Landers speaks fluent Russian but he can't read or write it. He
moved out of his parents' house at the age of 16 due to fights with his stepfather and subsequently switched his first
names, also in honor of his biological father. He soon left out Heiko, making his name Paul Hiersche.

Music career
In 1983, Landers formed the East German punk band, Feeling B, together with Flake Lorenz and Aljoscha Rompe,
in which Christoph Schneider would later also play. In 1986, Landers formed First Arsch with Till Lindemann and
Richard Kruspe. He also played in a number of other bands including Die Firma and Die Magdalene Keibel Combo.
Paul Landers 26

Lindemann, Kruspe, Schneider and bassist Oliver "Ollie" Riedel entered and won the Berlin Senate Metro Beat
Contest in 1994 that enabled them to have a four-track demo professionally recorded. Landers and Flake soon
followed suit to join the band which became known as Rammstein.
Oddly, he has stated that he does not like rock, but "with Rammstein it seems to work".

Personal life
When he married Nikki Landers in 1984 (at the age of 20), he took his wife's surname, thus making his name Paul
Landers.
Landers and Nikki had a son, Emil. They later divorced in 1987, but he kept her last name. He also has a second
child, a daughter, whose name and date of birth are unknown.
After his divorce with Nikki Landers, he lived with his Feeling B band mate Christian "Flake" Lorenz for a number
of years. Paul has since had a daughter and remarried. He is also the shortest member of the band, standing at
1.71m.[1]

Christian "Flake" Lorenz (born 16 November 1966, sometimes called "Doktor Lorenz") is a German musician,
notable as the keyboardist for the Neue Deutsche Hrte band Rammstein. He is also known for his role in the band
Feeling B.

Biography

Early years
Lorenz has a brother who is four years older. He was brought up and still lives in the former Prenzlauer Berg area of
Berlin (now a part of the borough of Pankow), where he still passes his old school building on the way to band
rehearsals.
Lorenz is known to be an educated pianist. Flake says he chose to play the piano because a childhood friend of his
played from the age of three. His parents sent him to a music school. Flake "began by painting the keys on a window
ledge" and "practiced one-half year on the window ledge". His parents bought him a piano for one hundred East
German marks for his 15th birthday.
Flake became "addicted" to rock and roll as a boy. He stopped his lessons in order to play with his father's jazz
records. "When I joined my first band," Flake has said, "I noticed that I couldn't play modern music. I still can't!" At
the age of sixteen, he apprenticed as a toolmaker, an apparently short-lived career.
Christian Lorenz 29

Feeling B
In 1983, at age sixteen, he began to play in the band Feeling B with Paul H. Landers and Aljoscha Rompe, a Swiss
living in East Berlin. He stayed with the band for about ten years. Feeling B started out firmly grounded in the
underground punk scene. Over time, Feeling B's popularity grew greatly and at the end of the German Democratic
Republic, it was one of the most respected and influential Eastern German bands despite their underground status.
Flake squatted/lived in an apartment with Paul during their early years. When they weren't playing gigs, Landers and
Flake would sell jackets made from cut-up bed sheets and dusters on the black market. Two jackets a month meant
as much money as an average salaried worker. "It was quite easy to make a living; not to work and stay out of
trouble," says Landers, "You only got problems if you were caught."
The group disbanded in the mid-1990s. On special occasions, the band members would get together for individual
concerts at punk festivals, until Rompe died in November 2000 of an asthma attack.
There is a book available about Feeling B.[1] [2]

Rammstein
In 1994, Till Lindemann, Richard Z. Kruspe, Oliver "Olli" Riedel and Christoph "Doom" Schneider entered and won
the Berlin Senate Metro beat contest that allowed them to professionally record a four track demo. Paul H. Landers
formally joined the band, then finally Flake. He was initially reluctant to join his five bandmates and had to be
pestered into becoming a member of Rammstein, as he thought they would be too boring. Eventually, he agreed to
join, and the group began work their first album, Herzeleid (Heartache).
In the band's performances and videos, Flake is often cast as the outsider of the group, possibly due to his relatively
unusual presence as a keyboard player in a heavy metal group. This varies from playing the part of a scientific
genius, aloof from the rest of the group, to playing a gimp role, to being left alone at the end of the "Keine Lust"
video, and being bullied by the rest of the band, particularly Lindemann. These distinctive roles in the band's
theatrical presentation have led to him becoming a very popular member of the group among fans.
Flake is probably best known for his part in the controversial live performance of the song "Bck dich" ("Bend
down" or "Bend over"), where he and vocalist Till Lindemann engaged in simulated sodomy with a liquor-squirting
dildo. On September 23, 1998, in Worcester, Massachusetts (USA) Lindemann and Flake Lorenz were arrested and
charged with lewd and lascivious behavior. A statement from Sergeant Thomas Radula of the Worcester Police
Department stated that Lindemann was simulating sex with Flake onstage "using a phallic object that shot water over
the crowd". They were held and released the following day on $25 bail. After months of legal debate, they were
eventually fined $100.
His role in "Bck dich" is not the only live act he is known for. Up until 2002, Flake would "surf" the audience in an
inflatable rubber dinghy during the performance of "Seemann" ("Seaman"). Ollie took his place in 2002. According
to Flake, the change occurred because he was injured too often. Also, during a 2001 concert in St. Petersburg, Flake
was tipped out of the boat by the crowd and almost completely undressed. Despite this, Flake has returned to
"surfing" the dinghy for Rammstein's 2009 tour during the performance of "Haifisch" ("Shark"). When performing
"Mein Teil" ("My part"), Flake is "cooked" with a flame-thrower by Till in a giant cauldron. Flake does a dance,
dubbed the "Flake-dance", during "Weies Fleisch" ("White flesh"). In the video for "Keine Lust" ("No desire" or
"Don't feel like it"), Flake is seen in an electric wheelchair. He is seen about to jump off of the top of a burning
building (trying and failing to land safely on a trampoline) in the video for "Benzin" ("Gasoline" or "Petrol"). In the
video for Ich Will ("I want") song, Flake is tied to a bomb that explodes in the end of video. In Rammstein's 2009
video for the song "Pussy", Flake portrays an intersex person named Heeshie. Flake was also the lead vocalist for
Rammstein's cover version of "Pet Sematary", originally by The Ramones.
During a concert in Gothenburg, Sweden on July 30, 2005, Till Lindemann suffered a knee injury when Flake
accidentally ran into him with the Segway he rides during the performance of "Amerika" ("America"). This caused
Christian Lorenz 30

concerts scheduled in Asia to be cancelled.


In 2005, Flake suffered from the mumps, causing concerts in South America to be cancelled.

Personal life
Brown is his natural hair color, but he has dyed it various times; his eyes are blue. Flake has been divorced once and
has three children, one of them a girl. He married a woman named Jenny in late 2008.
There is very little information available about his personal life outside of his musical career because he chooses to
keep most of it private. He has described the riskier parts being in Rammstein as being like a cold shower. It doesn't
feel too good right then and there, but afterwards you get a good feeling. Flake has described himself as an atheist,
having stated "I disapprove of religions which are made into rigid institutions. I also think that religious fanaticism
and missionary work are dangerous."
Flake has a certain skepticism towards America, which he has reportedly called a "sick and decadent country with no
culture" [3]. He likes the net (but is no longer able to access it from home), Poland, and Polish food. He despises
McDonald's.
He likes to listen to Einstrzende Neubauten, Die rzte, Element of Crime, Coldplay, Placebo, Johnny Cash, PJ
Harvey, System of a Down, Ministry, The Prodigy and once remarked that he would've liked to have been the sixth
Rolling Stone.
Flake is an amateur painter and likes classic cars. He has a Mercedes and is involved in vintage car hire business.[4]
Lorenz used to write frequently in the Fanarea logbook on the official website fanclub, which closed September
2004.
On 5 October 2005, Flake appeared briefly on Deutsche Welle. When asked how he felt about the reunification of
Germany, he said he prefers/misses the way things were then. "Even if the GDR survived, I still would've stayed a
musician. The increased size of the world also brought the danger of being compared to all of the international acts.
The bands which were in the east were the only ones there, and if you were successful there, you were successful. I
miss the simplicity. You went into a bar, ordered a beer, and you got a beer!... They didn't ask if you wanted... with a
head or without a head, foam top or bottom... It really gets on my nerves having all of these choices I really don't
want". He is also the second tallest member of the band, standing at 6 ft 6 in (198cm).

Nicknames
Christian Lorenz commonly goes by the nicknames "Flake" (pronounced as "Flak-eh" in German) and "Doktor".
"Doktor" came about because at one point he wanted to be a surgeon, but he was unable to study to become one
because of his refusal to join the East German military. In a December 16, 2000 interview, he states "Flake" is his
proper name.[5]

The discography of Rammstein, a German industrial band, consists of six studio albums, two live albums, and three
video albums. Rammstein has also released twenty-three singles, all of which are accompanied by music videos. The
band was formed in the mid-1990s by six musicians from East Berlin and Schwerin: singer Till Lindemann,
guitarists Richard Kruspe and Paul Landers, keyboardist Flake Lorenz, bassist Oliver Riedel, and drummer
Christoph Schneider.[1] [2]
Rammstein debuted with the single "Du riechst so gut", released on 17 August 1995 in a scented digipack format.[1]
[3]
A month later, the band issued their first studio album, Herzeleid, which peaked at number six on the German
Media Control Charts and remained there for 102 weeks. Before the release of its second studio album, Rammstein
issued the single "Engel" on 1 April 1997. It reached the top three on the German singles chart and was certified gold
by the Bundesverband Musikindustrie(BVMI) for the sale of more than 250,000 copies.[4]
Rammstein's second album, Sehnsucht, was released in August 1997; it topped both German and Austrian charts, and
eventually was certified platinum in the respective record industry associations of IFPI. On 30 August 1999, the band
released their first live album, Live aus Berlin. It was recorded over two nights at the Wuhlheide Venue, and issued
on both CD and DVD formats.[5] Released in April 2001, Mutter is Rammstein's third studio album; it topped the
German and Swiss charts and was certified double platinum in both countries. Five tracks were released from the
album as singles: "Sonne", "Links 2-3-4", "Ich will", "Mutter" and "Feuer frei!"; the latter was also used in the
opening scenes of the Rob Cohen film xXx.[6] In 2003, the group released the DVD Lichtspielhaus, containing live
performances, music videos, and interviews.[7]
On 26 July 2004, Rammstein released the single "Mein Teil", a song inspired by a German cannibal, Armin
Meiwes,[8] which peaked at number two on both German and Finnish charts. Later that year, the band released their
Discography 33

fourth studio album, Reise, Reise; it topped the Austrian, Finnish, German and Swiss charts, and was certified
platinum in the last two countries. Other singles from this album include "Amerika", "Ohne dich" and "Keine Lust".
Released worldwide on 28 October 2005, Rosenrot peaked at number one in Germany, Austria, and Finland, and was
certified gold in Austria and Finland and platinum in Germany. The album spawned the singles "Rosenrot", the
homosexuality-themed "Mann gegen Mann" and "Benzin". "Benzin" reached the top of the Danish Tracklisten. In
November 2006, the band issued the Vlkerball CD and DVD set, featuring live footage filmed in the United
Kingdom, France, Japan and Russia, plus a documentary.[9] It peaked at number one in the German and Finnish
charts, and was certificated double platinum by BVMI.

Rammstein demos 39

Rammstein demos
In 1994, Rammstein released some demos that are currently very rare. Some are original songs and some are also
demos that became songs on Rammstein's first album, Herzeleid. These are the most well known demos found across
the internet.[1]

1994 studio demos found


"Der Riecher" (The Crawler - "Du Riechst So Gut" demo)
"Hallo Hallo" (Hello, Hello - "Das Alte Leid" demo)
"Fleisch" (Flesh - "Weies Fleisch" demo)
"Rammstein" (Rammstein - "Rammstein" demo)
"Komm In Mein Boot" (Come In My Boat - "Seemann" demo)
"Schwarzes Glas" (Black Glass - original, some of its guitar riffs were reused in "Der Meister")
"Jeder Lacht" (Everyone's Laughing - original, some of its lyrics were reused in "Adios")
"Wilder Wein (Wild Wine - original in which a studio demo and live demo were both released)
"Feuerrder" (Wheels Of Fire - original)
Every now and then, Rammstein has performed demos of future songs live. These are the most well known found:

Live and miscellaneous demos


"Afrika" (Africa - "Sehnsucht" demo/working title performed live in late 1995 and early 1996)
"Punk" (Punk - "Feuer Frei!" demo/working title)
"Sandmann" (Sandman - "Mein Herz Brennt" demo/working title)
"Klitschko" (Klitschko - "Sonne" demo/working title, also known as "Der Boxer")
"Pastor" (Pastor - "Halleluja" demo/working title)
"Spiel Mit Mir" (Play With Me - "Spiel Mit Mir" demo from Sehnsucht performed live throughout 1996. Also had
different versions when played live.)
"Biest" (Beast - Possibly, Tier demo (lyric references) from Sehnsucht can be found in live performance and
extremely rarely in studio version.)
There have also been demos released as B-sides on albums such as Mutter and Reise, Reise but many of them are
just the songs on the albums themselves.

Reise Reise/Rosenrot Studio Demos


Most names were leaked on a Rammstein fan site, and many of these demos are very rare and have never been
recovered/heard by the general public. It is important to remember, however, that most of these demos are merely
work-in-progress versions of officially released songs (some under a completely different title). Sonntag bei Omi
was mentioned in a "Making Of" video which was released in the live DVD "Vlkerball". The only demos listed are
the ones that leaked onto the internet and have been confirmed to exist as studio recordings.
"Eisenmann" (Ironman - Original music/lyrics. Leaked onto the internet near the end of 2010, as a result of an
unsuccessful demo trade. Though this demo stirred a lot of controversy in terms of authenticity, it is considered to
be a real demo by most. Apparently some of the lyrics turned out to match those of an earlier leak.)
"Stirb Nicht Vor Mir" (Don't Die Before I Do - Demo version of "Stirb Nicht vor Mir (Don't Die Before I Do)"
from "Rosenrot". This version had altered lyrics, entirely in German, and had no female vocals. It also did not
Rammstein demos 40

have the guitar intro that the finished song had, though it did have a guitar solo at the end that the album version
did not have. This track leaked onto the internet in 2008.)

Rammstein Herzeleid Sehnsucht


(1994) (1995) (1997)

US Version cover

Herzeleid (dated German for "Heartache") is the debut album by German Metal band Rammstein. It was released on
29 September 1995. The album's original cover depicted the bandmembers' upper bodies without clothing. This
caused critics to accuse the band of trying to sell themselves as "poster boys for the master race."[2] The songs
"Heirate Mich" and "Rammstein" are featured in David Lynch's film Lost Highway. The direct translation of
"Herzeleid" is "Heartache"; however, according to an interview on Talking Metal's podcast in 2007, Richard Kruspe
stated that it doesn't translate to "Heartache", but in the German language, it simply means "Heartbreak". The album
is a culmination of the relationship troubles of all but one of the six band members, hence the title "Herzeleid".

Herzeleid Sehnsucht Live aus


(1995) (1997) Berlin
(1999)

Sehnsucht (German for "Longing", see Sehnsucht) is the second album by German industrial metal band
Rammstein. It was released on 25 August 1997.[1]
The album booklet folds out to reveal six different covers, one for each band member (each photo depicting the
member with bizarre facial-wear made out of ordinary kitchen objects like spatulas, spoons, forks etc.). The cover
most commonly seen features Till Lindemann with an egg-lifter worn as a muzzle and bent forks over his eyes worn
as sunglasses. The cover art was created by Austrian artist Gottfried Helnwein,[7] who also created the cover for the
Scorpions' Blackout album, which is very similar to the Sehnsucht cover and even the forks in both covers are the
same. The album is the only album entirely in German to be certified Platinum by the RIAA in the United States.
The song "Tier" closely resembles "Dawning of Doom" by Die Krupps.

Japanese Edition cover

Reise, Reise (German for travel, travel) is Industrial metal band Rammstein's fourth studio album. It was released on
27 September 2004 in Germany and followed shortly by its release across Europe. It was released in North America
on 16 November 2004. It was in the top ten in several European charts and a number one hit in Germany, Austria,
Switzerland, Iceland, Finland, Estonia and Mexico. As of February 2006, the album has shipped 1.5 million copies
globally.[7]
As used in "Reise, Reise aufstehen! Kommt hoch nach alter Seemannsart", the album name is an old Low German
sailor's expression to waken other sailors, hence the translation of the title would be "Arise, Arise", as seen in the
song of the same name. Given Rammstein's propensity to use puns, a double meaning could well be intended, as the
standard High German translation of "Reise" is "journey" or "travel".
Though written as a noun, "Reise" is obviously used as a verb in the song. The phrase "Reise, Reise" is used by
seamen as a wake-up call and finds its roots in the Middle High German verb "risen", which meant "to rise" (to
which it is obviously related as well). This verb has since died out in New High German, though the noun was
retained and came to mean "journey" or "voyage". The verb "reisen" was re derived from the noun "Reise", but now
means "to journey" or "to travel". It seems the old meaning has been preserved in this phrase in the seaman's
language.

Album art
The album art shows a damaged airplane cockpit voice recorder depicted on the front and back covers. Its caption
("Flugrekorder, nicht ffnen") means "Do Not Open Flight Recorder". The inner part of the Digipak edition case
shows a picture of the six members in suits wielding suitcases and weapons (like Michael Douglas in Falling Down)
leaving from a crashed airplane.
The cover art is an allusion to the song "Dalai Lama", which deals with an airplane accident. It is also suggestive of
the overarching 'travelling' theme of the album.
The album is based on the crash of Japan Airlines Flight 123 on the evening of August 12, 1985. Twelve minutes
into its flight, the Boeing 747 suffered an explosive decompression due to failure of its rear pressure bulkhead,
caused by a faulty repair years earlier. The explosion tore off most of the aircraft's vertical stabilizer and ruptured all
Reise, Reise 53

four of the hydraulic systems, causing the loss of all flight control surfaces and rendering the aircraft uncontrollable.
The pilots fought to keep the aircraft aloft for nearly 32 minutes, but eventually became trapped in the towering
mountain ranges surrounding Mt. Fuji and crashed, killing 520 out of the 524 passengers and crew on board. As of
2011 it remains the deadliest single aircraft disaster in history.
Some pressings of the album contain a recording of the last 40 seconds of the flight as an easter egg hidden in the
pregap.
The length of the album is often related to the Japan Airlines Flight 123's Boeing 747 that suffered an accident.

(2004) (2009)

Singles from Rosenrot

1. "Benzin"
Released: October 7, 2005
2. "Rosenrot"
Released: December 16, 2005
3. "Mann Gegen Mann"
Released: March 3, 2006

Rosenrot (German: "red like roses") is the fifth album by German Industrial metal band Rammstein. It was released
on October 28, 2005 in Germany, December 6, 2005 in Canada, and March 28, 2006 in the United States. A limited
Rosenrot 57

edition with a bonus DVD is also available. As of February 2006, the album has shipped 1 million copies
globally.[5]
The album includes six songs artistically omitted from Reise, Reise. The album's first title was Reise, Reise Volume
Two, but on August 18, 2005 the album was announced as Rosenrot.[6]
The cover art is nearly identical to the Japanese import of Reise, Reise. The image is a slightly altered photograph of
the icebreaker USS Atka, taken on March 13, 1960 at McMurdo Station, Ross Ice Shelf, Antarctica.[7]
While Rammstein did not actively promote the album, the band built anticipation through a variety of means. The
first single from the album, "Benzin", premiered at the Berliner Wuhlheide and was subsequently released on disc.
Rammstein's official website featured one-minute samples from six of the tracks, and had featured a prominent
release-date countdown. A brief section of the chorus from "Rosenrot" plays in the background of an e-card
containing photographs of the band and basic album information.[8]

The US Version features a parental advisory label that is printed on the cover.

Videos
On August 18, 2005, it was announced that "Benzin" would be the first video for Rosenrot. The "Benzin" video
premiered on German MTV on Friday, September 16, 2005. In the video, all of the members of Rammstein except
Flake play the role of reckless firemen driving a massive fire truck destroying things along the way. Flake does not
appear until the end of the video as a man about to commit suicide by jumping off the roof of a tall building. The
other band members open a life net for him but it ends up ripping. The video was shot in Berlin over three days in
August 2005. It was directed by Uwe Flade.
The second video from the album, "Rosenrot", premiered on November 30, 2005 on MTV Germany.
The third video, "Mann gegen Mann", was released on February 1, 2006. It shows the band (genuinely) naked and
utilizing their respective instruments to cover themselves, with the exception of Till, who is wearing a latex diaper,
and sports an inverted mohawk haircut. The video switches between the band playing, and teeming masses of naked
male bodybuilders. Towards the end, Till transforms into the demon that is portrayed on the cover.

Limited edition bonus DVD


The limited edition includes the normal CD plus a DVD with three live performances:
1. Reise, Reise (Arena of Nmes, Nmes / France July 2005)
2. Mein Teil (Club Citta, Kanagawa / Japan June 2005)
3. Sonne (Brixton Academy, London / UK February 2005)
All bonus performances were later featured on the DVD Vlkerball.
The Limited Edition featured slightly altered artwork, namely "Limited Edition" printed in white on the top left
corner, and the band and album name is reflective.
The US Version is the Special Edition, with that printed on the top left corner and the parental advisory logo
below, alongside the reflective band and album name.
The Japanese Version, released in 2009, has a SHMCD and the DVD.

Live
As of December 2010, Rosenrot is Rammstein's album with the poorest representation live. Benzin was debuted near
the end of the Reise, Reise 2005 tour and it was the only song from Rosenrot to be played in the Liebe ist fr alle da
tour that started in 2009. Initially it was thought that Rosenrot was played at rehearsals prior to the Liebe ist fr alle
da tour, but later it was documented that it wasn't.
Interviews given by the band prior to the start of the Liebe ist fr alle da tour made it clear that the band had no
intention to play any other song from Rosenrot.
But after announcing the Latin American leg of the tour in 2010, Te Quiero Puta! was played live for the first time in
Santiago, Chile, on November 25, 2010, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on November 27, 2010, as well as Mxico City
on December 6th. and 7th; making it the second Rosenrot song to be played live, 5 years after its release.

Special Edition cover

Liebe ist fr alle da (German for "Love Is For Everyone"[8] ) is the sixth studio album by German Industrial metal
band Rammstein, which was released in most of Europe on 16 October 2009, the United Kingdom on 19 October
2009 and the United States on 20 October 2009.[9]

History
The album title was confirmed on 1 September 2009, in a promotional video[10] for the new single, "Pussy", released
on 18 September 2009 in the European Union and 19 September 2009 in the United States. The single's B-side is
"Rammlied".[11]
The video for "Pussy" was released on adult website Visit-X, two days before the single. The video features scenes
of explicit male and female nudity as well as the band members (played by body doubles in the nude scenes)
engaging in sexual activity with women.
In July 2009, a promo version of the title track, "Liebe ist fr alle da", leaked onto the internet, along with various
promotional materials.
As of 16 October 2009, pictures taken throughout the recording of the album are available on Rammstein's official
website.
The album was released on 16 October 2009 in Europe and 20 October in the U.S.[12] It became platinum in Finland
before its release, solely from pre-release sales.[13] It debuted at number 3 in the French charts, making it
Rammstein's most commercially successful album in France.[14] Furthermore, the album entered at number 13 on the
U.S. charts, making it Rammstein's highest-charting album in the United States, although it subsequently fell off the
U.S. album charts after four weeks. In Germany, the album entered the charts at number 1 after the best start of a
music album in 2009[15] and beating popular German R&B-singer Xavier Naidoo's new album "Alles kann besser
werden". It remained high in the charts until it was censored.
According to Richard Z. Kruspe, "B********" does not stand for "Bastard", but for "Bckstab", a word made up
by the band to mean "whatever you want".[16]
Paul H. Landers stated that tracks which did not make it on the album will appear as B-sides on singles and there will
be a special edition of the album with five bonus tracks.
Liebe ist fr alle da 64

The song "Frhling in Paris" features lyrics from the song "Non, je ne regrette rien" by Edith Piaf.
On 8 November 2009, Rammstein played their first show for their "Liebe ist fr alle da" tour in Lisbon, Portugal,
their first live show in four years.
As announced,[17] a video was shot for the album's third single, "Haifisch", which premiered on the band's MySpace
page on 23 April 2010.
"Waidmanns Heil" is a playable track in the rhythm video game Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock.[18] [19]

Censorship
The album was added to the index of the Bundesprfstelle fr jugendgefhrdende Medien (Federal Department for
Media Harmful to Young Persons) in Germany, due to the track "Ich tu dir weh" and a picture inside the album
booklet displaying Richard Kruspe spanking a nude woman.[20] This means only adults can purchase the album;
additionally, it must not be displayed in stores where minors have access (see BPjM for details).[21] As a
consequence, the album was re-released in Germany on November 16 in an edited version without the censored track
and picture.[22] [23] The band still played the instrumental version song live in Germany until it was ultimately
banned from live performances.
Despite the censorship, the video to "Ich tu dir weh" was released on 21 December 2009, on adult website Visit-X,
just like the video to "Pussy", after advertisement on the band's official German website. Any references have since
been deleted, presumably following German law prohibiting advertisement for media on the index. In Europe, a
single was released on 5 February 2010, and in the UK on 15 February 2010.[24]
As of 31 May 2010, the administrative court in Cologne has decided to waive the suspensive effect of censorship
(case 22 L 1899/09). The German department deleted the record from the censorship lists on 1 June (Decision No. A
117/10).[25] On 9 June the band announced in their official website that the original version of the album was already
available at their shop and that a release of the single "Ich tu dir weh" in Germany was planned in a short period of
time.[26]

Singles

"Du riechst so gut"


Du riechst so gut (German for "You smell so good") is a song by the German Neue Deutsche Hrte band
Rammstein. It was the band's first single and was released on its first album, Herzeleid. It describes the inner
thoughts of a predator hunting his prey. The title is said to be inspired by Patrick Sskind's Perfume, a favourite
novel of Till Lindemann's, the singer of the band.

Music video
A music video was released for this single, depicting the band members shirtless in an all white environment. The
video opens with a Doberman Pinscher walking across the screen, with repeated cuts throughout of the dog looking
curiously at the camera along with flowers shown in the Herzeleid album cover and this single. Till Lindemann is
portrayed in simple close-up shots, sternly singing the lyrics and at one point sporting a menacing pair of goggles.
These are strikingly similar to Till's eyepieces shown on the Sehnsucht cover.

Live story
The song was first performed during the very first Rammstein show, on April 14, 1994 in Leipzig, Germany.[1] A fan
favorite, it was used as the last song of the show during many of the Herzeleid tour concerts. During live concerts in
the Sehnsucht tour, Till usually simulated firing rockets over the audience with a bow (actually propelled sitting on a
string) and then the bow started to propel sparks in all directions as Till rotated it. During some concerts, he used it
during different songs, like Laichzeit at the Bizarre Festival in 1997, or Du hast, during the Family Values tour in
1998. Guitarists Paul and Richard would conduct the audience during the extended solo. The song wasn't played at
all during the whole 2001-2002 Mutter tour, but it returned to the setlists on their Reise, Reise tour. This time
Richard and Paul wore jackets that shot flames/sparks from one of their sleeves, running from the shoulder down to
their forearms;[2] one would stand facing away from the audience, the other would stand facing the audience, and
then the pyrotechnics would be activated simultaneously while the two performed the tapping hammer on solo.[3]
After being dropped for the Liebe Ist Fur Alle Da tour in 2009, the song returned to the setlist on the 2010 part of the
tour, and the song was occasionally performed with the pyrotechnic jackets, however this time it was done with both
guitarists facing the audience.

2. Wollt ihr das Bett in Flammen sehen? (Album Version) - 5:19

(1997) (1998)

On April 17, 1998, "Du riechst so gut" was re-released as a single under the title, "Du riechst so gut '98". The song is
exactly the same as the original, except the start is shorter and it features a new music video. It was released only a
few months after Rammstein's second studio album, Sehnsucht.

Music video
The music video depicts the band members as some sort of Werewolf creatures, who look like albinos and follow a
young woman to a castle, infect her, then escape. In the novel Day Watch by Sergei Lukyanenko it is mentioned that
the werewolfs of the series played a part in creating the music video in order to romanticize themselves. The video
first premiered on 25 May 1998. The videoclip was shot between 20 and 25 April 1998, at castle Babelsberg in
Potsdam/Berlin, Jagdschlo in Berlin district Pankow and was directed by Philipp Stlzl.[4] The video was inspired
by the 1984 film The Company of Wolves.

(1995)

"Seemann" is a song by Rammstein, released as the second single from their LP Herzeleid. Its translation is
"Seaman" or "Sailor".
The video shows Schneider, Riedel, Landers and Kruspe pulling a boat through the sand, with Till and a masked
Flake inside. Later, they decide to keelhaul Till, still singing. The boat winds up in flames. The video is intertwined
with shots of a woman, dressed like a prostitute.

Live performances
The first known performance of the song is from the New Year's Eve 1994-1995 concert in Saalfeld, Germany. It
was probably played at every date of the Herzeleid tour. In the Sehnsucht tour, during this song, Flake (keyboard)
usually sat in a small inflatable boat and sailed over the crowd who waves and bring the boat back to the stage after a
short tour. This stunt is now performed in Haifisch instead of Seemann. Never played in the Mutter or Reise, Reise
tours, Seemann was probably last played on June 23, 1999 in Los Angeles, California. However, as of November 8,
2009 and a little more than ten years out of their setlists, Seemann returned for the first dates of the Liebe ist fr alle
da tour, just to be dropped again later on the tour.

"Engel" (German for Angel) is a song by German Industrial metal band Rammstein. The song is released as the first
single from their second album Sehnsucht. The remix of the song is used as the entrance theme for the Chikara heel
stable Bruderschaft des Kreuzes.
"Engel" 79

Recording
The female part of the chorus of the song is sung by Christiane "Bobolina" Hebold of the German pop band Bobo in
White Wooden Houses.

Music video
The video for Engel appears to give a nod to one of the scenes in the movie From Dusk Till Dawn.
While Lindemann, Schneider and Flake are in the audience in the video, Paul Landers can be seen taking Schneider's
place by playing the drums and Richard and Ollie are seen singing.

Live performances
A regular during the Sehnsucht tour, it was used as the last song of the main set in non-festival concerts. In the first
months of the Mutter tour, Engel appeared in the setlists sporadically, but became a regular again in November, and
continued as the last song of the main set until the end of the tour.
When performed on stage, flames shoot into the air, and Schneider's drumsticks would shoot sparks. On the 'Live aus
Berlin' shows, Bobolina joins Rammstein to sing her parts from inside a flaming cage, instead of the usual
pre-recorded chorus used in most of the shows. Engel was last performed live on July 13, 2002 [1]. After missing the
entire Reise, Reise tour; Engel returned to the setlists as the closing song of the Liebe Ist Fr Alle Da tour, taking
place during 2009 and 2010. This time around, vocalist Till Lindemann sang the chorus instead of Bobo's
pre-recorded lines. For the pyrotechnics, Lindemann wears a set angel wings that shoot flames off the tips and that
have sparks go off along them [2].

"Engel" "Du "Das


(1997) hast" Modell"
(1997) (1997)

"Du hast" German, "You have", whose title is a play on the homophones "hast" and "hasst" ("have" and "hate"), is a
song by German industrial metal band Rammstein. It was released as the second single from their second album
Sehnsucht. The song is also arguably the band's most well known song, with "Feuer frei!" also being said to be their
most well known song. It has appeared on numerous soundtracks for films, most notably The Matrix: Music from the
Motion Picture, and is featured in the music video games Guitar Hero 5 and Rock Band 3.
The main guitar riff of the song shows a strong resemblance to Ministry's song "Just One Fix"; the band themselves
have stated Ministry as one of their primary influences.
"Du hast" 81

Overview
There are two versions of the song: the original version completely in German, and a second version partially in
English. In the second version, the first chorus and the verses are in English and the last chorus is in German. The
lyrics to the English version are not a direct translation from then German due to the use of a homonym between the
German verbs haben (to have), and, hassen (to hate), in the original song. When conjugated in the second person
singular form (i.e. "you"), the verbs haben and hassen become respectively hast and hasst. There is no phonetic
difference between these two words. Due to the translational impossibility of retaining the homophone in English,
the English version was changed from Du hast, meaning "you have," to Du hasst, meaning "you hate." The song is a
play on German wedding vows.
The refrain "Willst du bis der Tod euch scheidet, treu ihr sein fr alle Tage?" translates to "Do you[singular] want,
until death separates you[plural], to be faithful to her for all time?" Instead of answering with "ja" (yes), the singer
says "nein" (no), finally breaking his silence earlier in the song: "Du hast mich gefragt, und ich hab' nichts gesagt."
This is in the present perfect and transliterates to "You have asked me, and I have said nothing," but is usually
translated in the past tense to, "You asked me, and I said nothing."
One time in the song, the refrain is sung with different words ("Willst du bis zum Tod der Scheide, sie lieben auch in
schlechten Tagen?"). This translates as "Do you[singular] want, until the death of the vagina, to love her even in bad
days?". Again, the singer responds with "Nein!".

Music video
The video, inspired by the 1992 film Reservoir Dogs, begins with Christoph Schneider and actress Astrid Meyerfeldt
arriving in a Volga GAZ-21 car near a desolate nondescript small warehouse in the countryside. Schneider reaches
into the backseat to get a bag and takes out a handgun, tucking it into the back of his pants as he walks into the
building. Inside, the rest of the band are standing around wearing Cupid masks, cut off below the nose. The band
take off their masks seeming pleased to see Schneider and start drinking, but the mood turns negative as evidenced
by Lindemann hitting Schneider's character from a camera view. A shot showing a syringe being administered seems
to be the reason for slurred views of the bands faces, all emphasizing the song chorus to the face of Schneider's
character, presumed to be lying on the ground. A match is lit, lighting up a gasoline trail and an upstanding human
figure is engulfed in flames. The entire band then walks outside, including Schneider completely unscathed as seen
by Meyerfeldt waiting by the car. Schneider glances at Meyerfeldt, checks his watch and the car explodes behind the
band walking in a line, unfazed by the explosion and not even looking behind.

Live performances
The first known performance of the song dates from 15 may 1997 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.[1] Over the years,
several stunts have been used during the live performances of "Du hast", ranging from the dildo used in "Bck dich",
to the bow used in "Du riechst so gut". In their Reise, Reise and Liebe Ist Fur Alle Da tour, flames shoot several feet
into the air and Till Lindemann shot with a different bow into the air, "starting" a chain reaction that fired rockets
over the audience. Being a fan favorite, it has been played in almost every concert to date since its initial
performance.

"Das Model" (spelling on album: "Das Modell"; English version title: "The Model") is a song recorded by the
electro-pop group Kraftwerk in 1978; written by musicians Ralf Htter and Karl Bartos, with artist Emil Schult
collaborating on the lyrics. It is featured on the album, Die Mensch-Maschine; English version title: The
Man-Machine. It is one of the band's most accessible and melodic songs.
First released as a 7" single in Germany (B-side: "Neonlicht"), under its English translation the song was eventually
included on the B-side of the "Computer Love" single released in July 1981, which reached #36 in the UK charts.
When radio DJs started playing the B-side, EMI re-issued the single in December 1981 apparently against the
band's wishes with "The Model" as the A-side. It reached #1 in February 1982 and spent a total of 21 weeks in the
top 75 of the UK singles charts.[3]

"Du "Das "Du riechst so gut

(1997) (1997) (1998)

German metal band Rammstein covered the German version of "Das Model" in 1997 as "Das Modell". It was
released as a non-album single.
"Das Modell" is introduced by a French phrase spoken by film editor Mathilde Bonnefoy:[7] "Mesdames et
messieurs, nous avons l'honneur ce soir, de vous prsenter la nouvelle collection de Rammstein" which translates to
"Ladies and Gentlemen, tonight we have the honor to present you with the new collection of Rammstein"
something that one would expect to hear about a clothing collection. The beginning sounds like a fashion catwalk.
Someone belches then a bump and a scream is heard, followed by laughter and cameras clicking, apparently to sound
as if the model stumbled and fell.
The single contains three non-album tracks taken from the Sehnsucht recording sessions. In the special version of
"Alter Mann", Bobo (Christiane Hebold) sings alongside Till Lindemann in the chorus. Also included is the
computer game "Asche zu Asche" for Microsoft Windows.

Live versions
Despite being a single, "Das Modell" has only been played live once, on 23 October 1998 in St. Louis, MO, USA,
during the Family Values Tour.[8] It had a shortened intro and outro, making it one of the few Rammstein songs to be
shortened instead of extended when played live. The second song Kokain was also played in concerts two or three
times. Moreover Lorenz stated it was a difficult song to put across live (http:/ / herzeleid. com/ en/ press/

"Du riechst so gut '98"


Du riechst so gut (German for "You smell so good") is a song by the German Neue Deutsche Hrte band
Rammstein. It was the band's first single and was released on its first album, Herzeleid. It describes the inner
thoughts of a predator hunting his prey. The title is said to be inspired by Patrick Sskind's Perfume, a favourite
novel of Till Lindemann's, the singer of the band.

Music video
A music video was released for this single, depicting the band members shirtless in an all white environment. The
video opens with a Doberman Pinscher walking across the screen, with repeated cuts throughout of the dog looking
curiously at the camera along with flowers shown in the Herzeleid album cover and this single. Till Lindemann is
portrayed in simple close-up shots, sternly singing the lyrics and at one point sporting a menacing pair of goggles.
These are strikingly similar to Till's eyepieces shown on the Sehnsucht cover.

Live story
The song was first performed during the very first Rammstein show, on April 14, 1994 in Leipzig, Germany.[1] A fan
favorite, it was used as the last song of the show during many of the Herzeleid tour concerts. During live concerts in
the Sehnsucht tour, Till usually simulated firing rockets over the audience with a bow (actually propelled sitting on a
string) and then the bow started to propel sparks in all directions as Till rotated it. During some concerts, he used it
during different songs, like Laichzeit at the Bizarre Festival in 1997, or Du hast, during the Family Values tour in
1998. Guitarists Paul and Richard would conduct the audience during the extended solo. The song wasn't played at
all during the whole 2001-2002 Mutter tour, but it returned to the setlists on their Reise, Reise tour. This time
Richard and Paul wore jackets that shot flames/sparks from one of their sleeves, running from the shoulder down to
their forearms;[2] one would stand facing away from the audience, the other would stand facing the audience, and
then the pyrotechnics would be activated simultaneously while the two performed the tapping hammer on solo.[3]
After being dropped for the Liebe Ist Fur Alle Da tour in 2009, the song returned to the setlist on the 2010 part of the
tour, and the song was occasionally performed with the pyrotechnic jackets, however this time it was done with both
guitarists facing the audience.

On April 17, 1998, "Du riechst so gut" was re-released as a single under the title, "Du riechst so gut '98". The song is
exactly the same as the original, except the start is shorter and it features a new music video. It was released only a
few months after Rammstein's second studio album, Sehnsucht.

Music video
The music video depicts the band members as some sort of Werewolf creatures, who look like albinos and follow a
young woman to a castle, infect her, then escape. In the novel Day Watch by Sergei Lukyanenko it is mentioned that
the werewolfs of the series played a part in creating the music video in order to romanticize themselves. The video
first premiered on 25 May 1998. The videoclip was shot between 20 and 25 April 1998, at castle Babelsberg in
Potsdam/Berlin, Jagdschlo in Berlin district Pankow and was directed by Philipp Stlzl.[4] The video was inspired
by the 1984 film The Company of Wolves.

"It's Called a "Stripped" "A Question of


Heart" (1986) Lust"
(1985) (1986)

"Stripped" is Depeche Mode's fifteenth UK single, released on February 10, 1986. It was the first single from the
album Black Celebration, and the band's thirteenth overall and sixth consecutive single to hit the UK Top 20,
peaking at #15. "Stripped" is well known for its innovative use of sampling. The underlying beat is a distorted and
slowed-down sound of a motorcycle engine running, while the main melody begins with a car's ignition starting, and
the end uses sounds of fireworks.[1]
The band's U.S. label Sire Records, however, decided to use the B-side "But Not Tonight" in the soundtrack to the
movie Modern Girls and included the song on US editions of Black Celebration. As a result, the single was flipped,
and released as "But Not Tonight" in the United States. The single did not chart. The band was not happy with this
"Stripped" 92

decision, seeing "But Not Tonight" as a useless poppy track recorded in less than a day.
The other two B-Sides are "Breathing in Fumes" and "Black Day". "Breathing in Fumes" is a new song using
samples from "Stripped", mixed by the band and Thomas Stiehler. "Black Day" is an acoustic, alternative version of
"Black Celebration" sung by Martin Gore, and is co-written by him, Alan Wilder, and producer Daniel Miller - the
only Depeche Mode song where Miller receives a writing credit.
The "Highland Mix" of "Stripped" was mixed by Mark Ellis (better known as Flood), who in the future would
produce Depeche Mode's Violator and Songs of Faith and Devotion records. UK Editions of the Black Celebration
CD include the extended remix of "But Not Tonight" along with "Black Day", and "Breathing in Fumes" as bonus
tracks.
The music video for "Stripped" was the last Depeche Mode video to be directed by Peter Care and was filmed
outside of Hansa Studios. The music video for "But Not Tonight" was directed by Tamra Davis and is available in
multiple versions.

Rammstein cover
German Neue Deutsche Hrte band Rammstein released a cover of "Stripped" in 1998. This version cuts the line
"Let me see you stripped down to the bone" to "Let me see you stripped". (The entire line is restored in the "Heavy
Mental Mix" by Charlie Clouser.) The song was originally on the tribute album, For the Masses and reached #14 in
the German single charts.[5] The song also appears as a hidden track on some editions of the band's sophomore
release Sehnsucht. It was the first English song released by the band.

Other versions
In 1997, the German electrogoth band In Strict Confidence recorded a version of the song. Their version,
however, is very different and almost ten minutes long.
Also, in 1997, the Swedish electro/synth-pop band Statemachine released a version of "Stripped" on their album
Legerdemain.
The Italian progressive death/doom metal band Novembre covered 'Stripped' on the album 1995 album Arte
Novecento

live album Excess All Areas. In 2007 they produced a download-only orchestral version of the song.
Also in 2004, Jimmy Somerville covered "But Not Tonight" on his album Home Again.
In 2005, Shiny Toy Guns covered "Stripped" on Goth Electro Tribute to Depeche Mode. The single can also be
found on the second version of their 2005 album "We Are Pilots".
Swedish rock band Kent used to end many of their concerts during the Isola tour in 1998 by playing a cover of
"Stripped", announcing it as "one of our favorite songs, that we sadly didn't write ourselves". This version was
also performed on Swedish talk show Sen Kvll Med Luuk.
In 2005, American electro industrial band Brainclaw covered "Stripped" and released it as a digital single.
British band, Long-View, covered Stripped and released as a single.
The intro to "But Not Tonight" is heavily sampled (with notes rearranged and set to a 3/4 beat) in the 2002 Dntel
song, "Don't Get Your Hopes Up." The song was released on a 7" vinyl, Styrofoam/Dntel Split.
In 2006, Darkwave-revival duo She Wants Revenge covered the song live at the Jet Nightclub in Las Vegas,
Nevada.[6]
The California rock band Drist covered the song on their album, "Orchids And Ammunition" in 2006.

(2001)

"Asche zu Asche" is a single by the German band Rammstein, from their first studio album, Herzeleid. The single
was included as a "Bonus CD" for the re-released Australian Tour Edition of Sehnsucht, and as a separate CD Single.
It contains the 1995 album version of "Asche zu Asche", and five live tracks taken from Live Aus Berlin. It was only
released in Australia as promotion of the Big Day Out Festival '01, for which Rammstein were a headlining act.

Live story
Since its release, "Asche zu Asche" has been a staple in Rammstein's live shows. It's the only Rammstein song to
have been played in every one of the band's tours. During performances the microphone stands would be set on fire
near the end of the song and clouds of smoke would cover the stage. The song was played at almost every concert
from 1995 to 2002. Initially it wasn't played during the Reise, Reise tour, but it was included again by the end of
February 2005, ultimately replacing "Rein, Raus" in the setlists. More recently, "Asche zu Asche" has been absent
during most of the Liebe ist fr alle da tour, but has made some rare appearances in Germany and Denmark,
replacing the song Ich tu dir weh, which was indexed by the German Bundesprfstelle fr jugendgefhrdende
Medien. During this performances, the effects used for Ich tu dir weh are used, which means the flaming stand has
not been used.

"Asche zu "Sonne" "Links


Asche" (2001) 2-3-4"
(2001) (2001)

"Sonne" (German for "Sun") is a song by the German Neue Deutsche Hrte group Rammstein. It was the first single
released from the then forthcoming album Mutter. According to Till Lindemann, the song was originally written as
an entrance song for the boxer Vitali Klitschko, which was also the working title of the song.[1]
An excerpt of "Sonne" was used in the 2002 movie FeardotCom, when the psychopathic torturist abducted an
unsuspecting aspiring actress.

Music video
The video features the band as dwarves working for a gold dust-addicted Snow White, driven by their sexual
obsession towards her. Apparently, this came about while several of the band members were watching the old
Disney film, Snow White, and had Sonne playing in the background, giving them the idea for the video. Also (as told
by Paul in the Making Of Sonne video) the video came out of a video Olliver (bassist) did mixing the Sonne song
and parts of the Snow White movie with his computer. The band supposedly went through nearly 40 different ideas

for the video such as the story of a boxer, before choosing the Snow White theme. One of the other ideas was a video
about the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima (which would have matched the lyrics and the
depressed-sounding vocalization). Lady Snow-White (German "Schneewittchen") is played by the Russian soap
actress Joulia Stepanova. There is also an extended version which is longer and has more scenes in it (ex: Snow
White smoking a cigarette while looking at a gold ring.)

In popular culture
It was featured as the opening song, on the very first episode of Kerrang, with Marilyn Manson speaking before the
song kicked in.[2]

Live story
It debuted as "Klitschko" on 16 April 2000. The song was very different from the final version released in Mutter.
Sonne was also played in some concerts of the Big Day Out festival 2001, and those concerts were the only time the
third verse of the song was sung. When played live, the band usually omits the final stanza, and instead they play a
slightly longer intro and outro. Theatrical flames shoot several feet into the air when Rammstein plays the song.
Since May 2001, Sonne has been played paired with Ich Will during the encores in every Rammstein concert to date.

"Sonne" "Links "Ich


(2001) 2-3-4" will"
(2001) (2001)

"Links 2-3-4" (German for Left 2-3-4) is a song by the Neue Deutsche Hrte band Rammstein, released on their third
studio album, Mutter (Mother).

Overview
The lyrics were written in response to allegations of fascism/nazism directed at the band. In the song they say "my
heart beats to the left, 2-3-4", meaning they are on the left of the political spectrum. The refrain is an allusion to the
revolutionary song Einheitsfrontlied, written by Bertolt Brecht for the Communist Party of Germany in the 1930s
and re-popularized by Hannes Wader in the German Democratic Republic.[1]
The song uses an alternate pronunciation of the German two, using zwo (pronounced tsvo) rather than zwei (tsvy)
(used on Sonne from the same album). "Zwo" is more commonly used within the German military, or in the Austrian
dialect, and this song presents a strong, militaristic theme, 'left - two - three - four' being a common drill instructor's
chant to keep a marching formation in step.
"Links 2-3-4" 101

Music video
The music video for the song uses CGI to portray the struggle of an ant colony against attacking beetles. During the
video, the band can be seen playing on a movie theater screen. There is also a right hand covered by ants near the
end of the video.

Live story
The song debuted live in April 2000 on a concert just for members of the fan club. Then it was called simply "Links"
and had some minor differences compared to the final version released in Mutter. It was also played during some
concerts of Big Day Out 2001. When played live, it usually extends to almost 5 minutes because of added
instrumentals. Since its debut, it has been played in virtually every Rammstein concert, exceptions being most of the
shows in Big Day Out 2001 and three consecutive concerts exclusively for members of the Fan Area in October
2004.

Track listing
The single has a B-side of "Halleluja", a track frequently performed live by the band. It is also available on the
Limited Edition release of Mutter, as well as some Japanese releases and Resident Evil Soundtrack.
A DVD version of "Links 2-3-4" contains the audio tracks, as well as a video portion with the official music video,
its making-of documentary and a photo gallery. Both videos were subsequently re-released on the Lichtspielhaus
DVD.

"Links "Ich "Mutter"


2-3-4" will" (2002)
(2001) (2001)

"Ich will" (German for I want) is a single by Rammstein. It was originally released in Germany on September 10,
2001. Since it was released the day before the September 11, 2001 attacks, many channels did not air the music
video (which was to debut on U.S. television the night of September 11, 2001). The German single contains a live
cover version of The Ramones' song "Pet Sematary", sung by keyboardist Flake.

Music video
The music video of "Ich will" features the band members engaging in a bank robbery. The video shows both the
robbery and its aftermath, and moves between these two scenes.
The robbery: The band is shown entering a bank wearing stockings over their heads, except for Flake, who has a
very large and elaborate-looking bomb strapped to his chest. Various band members (excluding Flake) later leave the
bank and are confronted with both Spezialeinsatzkommando and media. The reaction of the media towards the
Rammstein band members is quite outlandish, as they are celebrated by the media. At the very end of the video, the
timer on Flake's bomb reaches zero. The video quickly flicks through a series of short clips from some of
"Ich will" 104

Rammstein's other music videos, then comes to an end.


The aftermath: The band (Flake excluded) emerges from a bus wearing shackles and prison attire. They are
surrounded by a large crowd and the media, and the crowd cheers for them. They step up to a podium and receive a
Goldene Kamera (Golden Camera) award, a German version of the Emmy award. Behind the band is a large, sepia
picture of Flake and a coffin which is supposedly the place where his "remains" lie (most of the "aftermath" is shown
at the beginning of the clip, although it is also revisited later).
In an interview, Rammstein described the music video of "Ich Will" as being a demonstration of the media's
obsession with a good story, as well as an illustration of the immortality that can be achieved by those who commit
wrongs.
The video was filmed in Berlin in the former State Council building (Staatsratsgebude) of the German Democratic
Republic which now houses the European School of Management and Technology.

Live story
Along with "Nebel", "Ich will" was the only song from Mutter that was not played live in its demo form in the
concert for members of the Fan Area on April 2000. Instead, it debuted on May 1, 2001, in another concert for
members of the Fan Area. When played live, explosions are part of the performance, and it usually closes the show
during festivals. It has been played paired with Sonne during the encores in every Rammstein concert to date since
its debut, exceptions being three consecutive concerts for members of the Fan Area in October 2004.

"Ich "Mutter" "Feuer


will" (2002) frei!"
(2001) (2002)

"Mutter" (German for mother) is a song by Rammstein on the album of the same name.

Overview
The song was confirmed by Till Lindemann and Richard Kruspe to be a reference to their unhappy childhood
relationships with their own mothers. The lyrics tell the story of a child not born from a womb but in an experiment,
thus having no true father or mother. The decidedly depressing lyrics describe his plan to kill both the mother "who
never gave birth to him" and himself, a plan which he proceeds to carry out. However, he still fails to kill himself,
instead ending up mutilated and no better off than before. The child begs, possibly prays, for strength, but his dead
mother does not answer. The narrative of the song is similar to Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, in that the character
takes revenge for his misfortunes on his 'parent', and then ends up no different than he was before the 'parent' died.
The video for Mutter follows the storyline of the song, whereby the character kills his mother and then dumps her
body in a river, ending with the character in a cage or dungeon that is set into the ground.
"Mutter" 107

The single includes an instrumental song, 5/4, that was played as intro for live shows since 2000, but wasn't released
until 2002.

Live story
It debuted on April 2000 in its demo form, in a concert exclusively for members of the fan area. The only difference
between it and the final release was that the demo version was less orchestrated. During the Mutter tour, it was
played at every concert, and played in select concerts in the Pledge of Allegiances tour in North America. "Mutter"
has not been played live since the end of the Mutter tour in 2002.

"Feuer "Mein "Amerika"


frei!" Teil" (2004)
(2002) (2004)

"Mein Teil" (German: "My part") is the first single by the German industrial metal band Rammstein from their
fourth album Reise, Reise. The song is inspired by the case of Armin Meiwes and Bernd Jrgen Armando Brandes.
In March 2001, in Rotenburg an der Fulda, the two men aged in their 40s met each other, cut off and cooked
Brandes' penis and consumed it together. Afterwards, Meiwes killed Brandeswith Brandes' consentand ate his
remains. As a result, Meiwes was sentenced to eight-and-a-half years in jail for manslaughter, but was later charged
with murder and sentenced to life imprisonment. A prominent phrase in the song is "Denn du bist was du isst und ihr
wisst was es ist" ("Because you are what you eat and you (plural) know what it is").
"Mein Teil" 111

According to Rammstein's bassist Oliver Riedel, the song came about after "one of our members brought a
newspaper to rehearsal and it had a story about the cannibal guy in it. We were fascinated, shocked and amused at
the same time." Vocalist Till Lindemann stated, "It's so sick that it becomes fascinating and there just has to be a
song about it".[1]
"Mein Teil" attracted controversy in Germany; the media dubbed it the "Kannibalensong" (cannibal song), which
helped to boost it to second place in the German music charts after its release in early August 2004. Remixes of the
song were done by Arthur Baker and the Pet Shop Boys.
At the beginning of the song in the video, the phrase "Suche gut gebauten Achtzehn- bis Dreiigjhrigen zum
Schlachten Der Metzgermeister" ("Looking for a well built 18 to 30 year old to be slaughtered - The Master
Butcher") is spoken, voiced by Ollie, although the album version of the song does not have this beginning. The quote
is taken from an online post by Armin Meiwes.
"Mein Teil" was nominated for Best Metal Performance at the 48th Grammy Awards, but lost to Slipknot's Before I
Forget.[2]

Live history
It debuted in three consecutive concerts for members of the fan club, in October 2004. This song is one of the most
notable live performances of the 20042005 Reise, Reise tour. From the central backstage access, Till Lindemann
appears pulling a giant cooking pot. He is dressed as a blood-stained chef holding a microphone with a large
butcher's knife attached to the end. Keyboardist Christian "Flake" Lorenz appears in the pot, with metal cylinders
attached to his arms and legs, and plays the keyboard during the song. After the second chorus, Till takes a
flamethrower and roasts the bottom of the pot, "cooking" Flake. Flake escapes from the pot and starts running around
the stage with flames erupting from his arms and legs, while chased by a knife-wielding Till. When asked about what
it is like to perform this, Flake said: "It's fine. It is only pain. Although you can't breathe in because then you will
inhale the flames and die." Due to all of the theatrical performance, the song usually extended to 6 or 7 minutes when
played live. It was played at every concert of the Reise, Reise tour, but was dropped on the Liebe ist fur Alle Da tour,
a move which irritated many fans. However, it returned to playlist for the Latin American leg of the tour in 2010, the
Auckland leg of the Big Day Out festival and the South African leg of the tour in 2011.

Music video
The controversy over Mein Teil prompted MTV Germany to restrict the airing of the music video to after 11 PM.
The video shows a cross dressed Doom Schneider dressed as Armin Meiwes's mother, Till being fellated by an angel
before he eats her wings and kills her; Flake performing ballet in a hallucinatory state; Paul shaking, screaming
violently and wandering around the set in a frantic and crazed state; Richard violently fighting with his
doppelgnger; Ollie writhing on the floor in painful spasms with his skin covered in white powder; the whole band
(excluding Schneider) fighting in a mudpit; and five of the band members crawling out of the Deutsche Oper
U-Bahn (subway) station while held on leashes carried by Doom Schneider.

"Mein "Amerika" "Ohne


Teil" (2004) dich"
(2004) (2004)

"Amerika" is a song performed by German band Rammstein, released as the second single from their album Reise,
Reise. It deals with the worldwide influence of the culture of the United States of America. The song's two verses are
sung in German with a chorus in English: We're all living in Amerika, Amerika ist wunderbar, We're all living in
Amerika, Amerika, Amerika. The band views it as a satirical commentary on Cocacolonization, and it features
mentions of Coca-Cola, and Mickey Mouse.
The end of the song is construed by some to be criticizing American policies of interventionism on other countries.
(sung in German) I know moves that are very useful
and I will protect you from missteps
And whoever doesn't want to dance at the end
Doesn't know yet that they must
"Amerika" 115

(sung in English)
I don't sing my mother tongue
No, this is not a love song.

Video
The video by F. shows a girl in Apollo-era space suits on the moon, and playing a pinball machine with shots of
other cultures acting like stereotypical Americans and some using American-owned products, such as cigarettes,
with the implication that American culture is negative but also everywhere. The high tech Apollo scenes are intercut
with African, and Australian Aborigine tribal footage as a stark cultural contrast. The end of the video shows that the
band have actually been in a fake Moon set in a studio,[1] complete with film crew, an allusion to Apollo moon
landing hoax accusations. Till Lindemann, Rammstein's lead singer, wears a space suit with the name "Armstrong"
on it - referring to Neil Armstrong.

Performance live
As with every song from Reise, Reise (except Ohne Dich) Amerika debuted live on 3 consecutive concerts for
members of the fan club. During the live performances of this song in tour, Flake is often seen riding around on a
Segway PT; confetti cannons, with red, white and blue confetti in a parody of a ticker-tape parade. It was the last
song of the main set, and was played at every concert of the Reise, Reise tour. During a concert in Gothenburg,
Sweden on July 30, 2005, Till Lindemann suffered a knee injury when Flake accidentally ran into him with the
Segway PT This caused concerts scheduled in Asia to be cancelled.
Amerika has been played just once in the Liebe ist fr alle da tour (however, not at the show in New York City),
closing a show for the first time.

"Ohne dich" (Without You) is a power ballad by German band Rammstein from the album Reise, Reise. It is seen as
expressing mourning over the loss of a loved person. It was released as the third single from the album on 22
November 2004 in Germany (peaking at #12), Switzerland and Austria. Other countries' releases followed up from
that date. It follows a slow, even romantic ballad style. The central motif is 'Without you, I cannot be, without you...,
With you, I am so alone, without you...'

Live story
The song debuted live in its beta version in 2000, in a concert just for members of the fan club [1]. After that, it was
dropped during the 2001-2002 Mutter tour. It returned to the setlists for the 2004-2005 Reise, Reise tour, in which it
was played in almost every concert, exceptions being festivals. Usually, sparks would rain over Till Lindemann
during the final chorus. In those of the live shows that Apocalyptica was the support act, they played the cellos in the
song. It hasn't been played live since the end of the Reise, Reise tour in 2005.

Video
The video was filmed in the Kaun Valley and on the Groglockner in Tyrol, Austria. It shows the band climbing in
the mountains when Rammstein's vocalist Till Lindemann falls and gets badly hurt. The song then ends while the
band sits in the tent and Till, with gangrene eating away at his injured leg, longingly watches up on a mountain peak.
The music starts again as the band starts to climb the mountain, carrying Till on their shoulders. In the end, they
reach the mountain peak, Till takes a look around and dies satisfied.

"Ohne "Keine "Benzin"


dich" Lust" (2005)
(2004) (2005)

"Keine Lust" (No Desire) is a song by the German band Rammstein. It was released as a fourth & final single from
the album "Reise, Reise" on 28 February 2005 in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland as a maxi-single, a limited
edition digipak single, a 7" vinyl single, a 12" Vinyl single, and as a two-track. The title is a German phrase which
might be translated as "No Desire", although the phrase as used in the lyrics "Ich habe keine Lust" is more like the
English "I do not feel like" or "I do not want to".

Video
In the "Keine Lust" video, filmed in January 2005 and finally presented only a month later, the band is morbidly
obese. The film appears to be a reunion with visibly aged band members and instruments that are clearly old and
dusty. Out of all of the band members only keyboardist Flake appeared not to have gained any weight (because
"anything he doesn't want to do, he doesn't do", which includes eating). He arrives in a motorized wheelchair, just in
time to play the keyboard part. At the end of the video, the rest of the band leaves, abandoning Flake who has
managed to stand during the song and now cannot sit back down.
"Keine Lust" 120

The video was up for a nomination for the MTV European Music Awards in November 2005.

Meaning
On the video "The Making of Keine Lust", guitarist Richard Kruspe discussed the meaning of the song and music
video.
"You know, after all of these years we're full-up! Fame, success, money. We don't want to do anything
anymore! Nothing! That's the idea in the song. We've returned to the starting point again. We just want
to make music again. We don't want all the circus that goes with it anymore. So, we meet up again, one
more time, for one more performance- just to make music together. The fact that we are fat is just
symbolic for excess. It's really just about returning to the beginning."

Live story
It was first played in three consecutive concerts for members of the fan club, in October 2004. In the formal tour, it
was played in every concert. Large columns of CO2 were part of the on stage show. The band played the song in the
Echo Awards 2005, and they played dressed in the costumes used in the video. They even arrived on stage in the cars
seen in the video. Currently, Keine Lust is the only song from Reise, Reise in the Liebe Ist Fr Alle Da tour setlist,
excluding a one-off performance of Amerika and Mein Teil, which was played during the 2010 South American leg
of the tour, as well as the 2011 Tour of South Africa.

"Keine "Benzin" "Rosenrot"


Lust" (2005) (2005)
(2005)

"Benzin" (German for Gasoline) is a song by German rock band Rammstein, released as the first single from their
album Rosenrot.
In Germany, gasoline is called Benzin (which is derived from the chemical mixture benzine). Till has confirmed in
an interview that the song Benzin is about the rising gas prices.[1] The song uses the word "Gasolin", however the
word does not exist in the German language, but it is an English word made German. There was, however, a German
chain of gas stations called "Gasolin."
Benzin was Rammstein's first number one single, getting to number one in Finland after its release in 2005.
"Benzin" 123

Music video
In the video, Rammstein are firefighters. They have not had a call for a long time, and are thus very ill-equipped for
dealing with an emergency. They enter a huge, eight-lane-wide fire-engine, and set off on their journey, not taking
any notice of the damage they are causing, or the people they are killing. They plow through high-voltage
power-lines, trains, trees and normal road vehicles; despite this, the truck remains unscratched. During the journey,
the scene changes to a fantasy by guitarist Paul H. Landers, during which he saves a "damsel-in-distress" from a
burning building. During this fantasy, the band members are playing Benzin in the background amongst the smoke.
The scene returns to the Fire-engine, plowing through traffic and buildings before it overturns and sends the
band-members crashing through the windscreen. As Till comes round, a man points to the top of a nearby building.
It dawns on them that they have crashed right outside the emergency. They scramble to get a safety trampoline out
for the jumper, who happens to be Christian "Flake" Lorenz. The trampoline rips just as he jumps, and thus, despite
all that carnage and destruction, his bandmates completely fail to save his life.

Live Performance
The song was first played live in the Reise, Reise tour on June 23,
2005 in Berlin's Wuhlheide [2], months before its release. It replaced
Moskau on the setlist. Benzin was played on the next two nights, lyrics
changing a little bit even from one night to the next. Theatrical flames
shot twenty meters into the air during those live performances. It was
then played in the non-festival concerts until the end of the tour, but
this time without any pyrotechnics. However, as of the Liebe Ist Fr
Alle Da tour, Benzin has returned to being performed with
pyrotechnics, including a flamethrower disguised as a petrol pump. By Benzin performed live at Bercy (Paris), 2009

the end of the song Till Lindemann uses it to set a 'fan' on fire, who
runs through the stage until the song is over.

"Benzin" "Rosenrot" "Mann gegen


(2005) (2005) Mann"
(2006)

"Rosenrot" (German for Rose-red) is a song and single from the album of the same name by the German band
Rammstein.
The "Rosenrot" track was highly anticipated by fans of Rammstein, as it was first hailed in February 2004 to be the
first single from the band's fourth studio album, Reise, Reise (the song "Mein Teil" took the honour instead). In the
end, "Rosenrot" didn't even make the tracklist of Reise, Reise, a move that the band's management claimed "left them
speechless."
The lyrics contain elements from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's poem "Heidenrslein" (while his poem "Erlknig"
similarly inspired the Reise, Reise track, "Dalai Lama"), and the story "Schneeweichen und Rosenrot," from the
Brothers Grimm. Till also seldom uses his trademark curling of 'R's in the song.
The single was released in Germany on December 16, 2005.
The song features riffs used previously in "Stein um Stein".
"Rosenrot" 125

Video
The video portrays the band as traveling monks from different religious orders who have come to a small village
apparently situated in Zarnesti (nearby Brasov), Romania. The main story of the video shows the band's vocalist Till
Lindemann falling in love with one of the local girls, whom he met during a celebratory feast. At her request, he
enters her house and murders her parents. As he leaves the house, he smiles to the girl and she smiles back briefly,
before crying out, at which the villagers rush upon Till from the darkness and beat him. They tie him up and burn
him on a stake; Till's fellow monks and his lover participate in the execution by throwing burning brands onto the
woodpile. The girl in the video is portrayed by Romanian model Ctlina Lavric, who was 14 at the time of shooting.
The plot mirrors the song's lyrics: in both the video and the song, a man is asked to commit a self-destructive yet
pointless act by his lover, and dies in the attempt while she is unharmed. In the video the man commits murder and is
executed; in the song he attempts to retrieve a rose from a mountain, and falls to his death.[1]
Throughout the video footage is shown of the band flagellating themselves with whips. The priests, Till in particular,
are seen to be in emotional torment as the people of the village they visit are infused with emotional or physical
pleasure; the townsfolk are often seen drinking and dancing. The stricter priests feel love, lust, and gluttony, and they
are seen whipping themselves with knotted ropes as penance. The irony of this is that once one of the priests has
come to terms with his love and feels no guilt, he is killed for the murders he committed. Similar irony is seen in the
video for "Ich will", where a bank robbery is rewarded by media attention; hypocritical justice is a common theme in
Rammstein's videos.
The video shows some references to Jesus Christ:
1. Flagellation was experienced by Jesus Christ as well, before His crucifixion.
2. Stigmata was shown on the monk's hands, given by his lover by thorns of a rose.
3. A reference to Jesus' crucifixion was shown, when the monk was burned on a stake.

"Rosenrot" "Mann gegen "Pussy"


(2005) Mann" (2009)
(2006)

"Mann gegen Mann" (German for "Man Against Man") is the third and final single from the Rammstein album,
Rosenrot. The song is about homosexuality, and is the first Rammstein song to include nudity.

Music video
The video premiered on February 2, 2006, on MTV Germany and was directed by Jonas kerlund. In it, the entire
band aside from Till plays totally naked except for their boots with only their instruments to cover them up. As Till
only has a microphone, he wore a "latex diaper" (according to guitarist Paul H. Landers in an interview) as well as a
long, black wig, stockings and high heels. The video alternates between shots of the band playing and a teeming
mass of naked men, covered in what appears to be oil and writhing all over one another.
Towards the end, Till becomes more manic and a forked tongue flicks from his mouth. The band is carried over the
naked men and Till has turned into the demon, that can be seen on the cover, singing melodiously along with the
guitar. The hands and the arms of naked men reach up towards him; the music picks up pace and the naked men
begin to push each other around and everything begins to degenerate into chaos. Till then starts to rip his hair out as
"Mann gegen Mann" 127

the song ends.

"Mann gegen "Pussy" "Ich tu dir


Mann" (2009) weh"
(2006) (2010)

"Pussy" is the first single from the album Liebe ist fr alle da by Rammstein.[1] The song was released with a
controversial and sexually explicit video in which the band members, each portrayed by body-doubles, are seen
having sex with women.[2]
The first promotional video for the single was released online on 16 September 2009 at The Gauntlet [3]. The video
also confirmed the new album title.
"Pussy" was Rammstein's first number one single in Germany. The song was also remixed by Scooter, a fellow
German artist and the remix later appeared on "Ich tu dir weh" single.
Also, it was the first Rammstein song to be released after their 3-year hiatus.
"Pussy" 130

Music video
The video was directed by Jonas kerlund and was released online on 16 September 2009. The video features the
band playing the song wearing leather outfits, interspersed with 6 hardcore pornographic videos featuring each of the
band members as a different stereotypical pornographic character: Till as the Playboy, Christoph as the CEO, Paul as
the Cowboy, Oliver as Mr. Pain (a BDSM fetishist), Richard as the Partyboy, and Flake as Heeshie. Each scene
features a band member engaging in foreplay with a different woman, and the scenes become more explicit as the
video progresses until they engage into unsimulated sexual intercourse with graphic nudity. However, body doubles
were used for some of the band members.[4] At the end of the video, the band members ejaculate.
The song's lyrics are partially in English, and contain phrases such as "I can't get laid in Germany", a mention of the
Autobahn, and the seemingly nonsensical line "Reise, Reise, Fahrvergngen", a reference to appearances of German
culture in American commercialism (the latter from a Volkswagen advertising campaign, the former from one of
Rammstein's own previous albums). Together, these aspects of the song create a contrast between the sexual mores
of German society and that of America.

Live story
"Pussy" debuted live, as most of Rammstein's songs,
during fan exclusive concerts held in Berlin in October
2009. Currently "Pussy" is the last song of the main set
of the Liebe ist fr alle da tour. When played, frontman
Till Lindemann mounts a giant penis-painted foam
cannon that shoots over the audience and confetti with
the colors of the German flag falls from the ceiling,
much like "Amerika" in the Reise, Reise tour. However,
in recent concert the confetti has been white. During
their performance at the sonisphere festival in Sofia,
Bulgaria, Till sang some words from the chorus in
Bulgarian.

Vinyl

Vinyl editions cover

"Ich tu dir Weh" (Meaning: I Hurt You) is the second single from the 2009 album Liebe ist fr alle da by the
German band Rammstein. Mainly because of the sado-masochistic content of this song, the album was placed on the
"index" maintained by the German Bundesprfstelle fr jugendgefhrdende Medien.[1] [2] In May 2010, the original
uncensored album and the single were unindexed and consequently released in Germany.[3]

Music video
The first promotional video for the single was released online on 21 December 2009, hosted on the adult site visit-X.
The video shows the band performing the song with equipment that has black and gray colours. Both Till Lindemann
and Oliver Riedel are wearing eye contacts that eventually turn colours. (Ollie's turn green and Till's turn red.)
Lindemann's mouth also shines a white light when he sings. There is a cable run through his cheek, and a light is
mounted inside of his mouth (this is not a prop or trick photography). Till wanted the effect to be authentic, so he
essentially had a cheek piercing created just for the production.[4] [5] At the climax of the video, the stage around
Flake fills with electricity, resulting in the band members exploding at the last note.

Live story
When played live, large amounts of pyrotechnics are used during "Ich tu dir weh". Worth noting is the
choreographed fight that happens mid-song between front man Till Lindemann and keyboardist "Flake" Lorenz,
which ends with Flake being forced into a large bath tub. Lindemann proceeds to stand on a platform that raises him
high above the bathtub, from which he pours a large amount of sparks from a milk can into the bath below. This
causes multiple large explosions, after which Flake emerges wearing a silver holographic suit. In the first few
German concerts of the Liebe ist fr alle da tour, the song's lyrics would be modified to allow the band to play the
song with lyrics live, due to the lyrical content being tagged as inappropriate by the Bundesprfstelle fr
jugendgefhrdende Medien.[1] [2] The song is now allowed to be played live as the decision to place the song on the
index has been reversed. It is from this point during the "Liebe is fur alle da" tour, that Flake Lorenz also begins to
walk on a treadmill located between his two keyboards and this continues for the rest of the performance. As of
2010, the song has been removed from the Latin America setlist and replaced with "Mein Teil". However, it did
return in the Canada and U.S. concerts.

"Ich tu dir "'Haifisch'"


weh" (2010)
(2010)

"Haifisch" (German: "Shark") is the third single from the 2009 album Liebe ist fr alle da by the German band
Rammstein. Right before announcing the video premier, the info letter from Rammstein's website left this quote
regarding the song: "the shark not only has teeth hes got tears as well. But since it lives in the briny deep, no one
sees them. A shame. After all, this cartilaginous fish is one of the oldest of the worlds many misunderstood
creatures. A bit more sympathy couldnt hurt!"
The chorus to the song is an allusion to the lyrics to Mack the Knife, a song written by Berthold Brecht for his play
the Threepenny Opera. Haifisch reached 33 in the German charts, but fell off the very next week.
"Haifisch" 138

Music video
The music video was released on 23 April 2010 on the band's MySpace page.
The video features the band at lead singer Till Lindemann's funeral along with some other mourners, one of whom is
Marilyn Manson. A fight breaks out between two women who have had Till's children. Meanwhile, the rest of the
band contemplate on who should replace Till as the singer (Henry Rollins and James Hetfield are shown as
suggestions, with Hetfield presumably being picked, as his picture was shown more than once, as well as being
pointed to by one of the band members). As the video continues, Till is lowered into his grave enscripted "endlich
allein" (German: "finally alone") and many scenarios are shown of how Till died, which are all based on previous
Rammstein videos: being beaten and set on fire by Schneider (Du hast), having his tether cut while rock climbing by
Richard (Ohne dich), having his oxygen pipe removed from his space suit by Ollie while on the moon (Amerika),
and a fat Till being suffocated with spaghetti force-fed to him by Flake (An homage to the movie Se7en and also
Keine Lust). Lorenz also imagines Paul being spanked by Till in a Snow White costume (Sonne). Later in the video
the band begins to fight amongst themselves and Flake finds himself falling into the grave and breaking Till's coffin
open, revealing that there is no body inside. Till is then shown alive and well in Oahu, Hawaii, where he sends a
postcard to the band that reads "Viele Gre vom Arsch der Welt" (German: "Greetings from the ass of the world")
and shows that he has caught a Tiger Shark on what appears to be 14 February 2010.
It is the first Rammstein video for Liebe ist fr alle da not to premiere on the adult site Visit-X.

Live
"Haifisch" made its live debut, as most of Rammstein's songs, during fan exclusive concerts held in Berlin in
October 2009, segueing out of Sonne and followed by Ich Will, separating the common duo that has been a feature
in the encores since 2001. When played live, the break is extended and a band member (usually Flake, who hadn't
performed the stunt in years) surfs the crowd in a rubber dinghy, feat that previously had been performed during
Stripped, Seemann and occasionally Heirate Mich. The band member will then proceed to wave a flag of the country
that the show is being performed in. Due to this boat ride, the song may reach the 10 minutes mark, almost three
times the length of the studio version.

Sehnsucht Live aus Mutter


(1997) Berlin (2001)
(1999)

Live aus Berlin (German for "Live from Berlin"), is a recording of a concert by the German NDH-metal band
Rammstein in 1998. It has been released in several formats:
CD (15 tracks)
2 CD Limited Edition (18 tracks + multimedia content)
Censored VHS/DVD (Without Bck dich)
Uncensored VHS (With Bck dich)
Live aus Berlin 141

There is no uncensored DVD version of Live aus Berlin. However, the song "Bck dich" can be found on the
Internet and on the Family Values Tour '98 DVD.
The performance of "Bck dich" ("Bend down", "Bend over") is controversial. The portrayal of anal sex using a
water-squirting dildo led to the video being given an 18 certificate in Europe. The act led to the lead-vocalist Till
Lindemann and keyboardist Christian "Flake" Lorenz being arrested during the Family Values Tour in the U.S. in
1998.

(2009)

Vlkerball (German for "Dodgeball", lit. "Peoples' ball") is the German heavy metal band Rammstein's live

Vlkerball 148

Name
Vlkerball is the German name for the game of dodge ball. Literally it means Peoples' Ball. One could also think that
the combination of the word Ball, being a dancing event like English ball or prom, in connection with Peoples and
relating to the musical act Rammstein, means Dancing/Musical event of (all) peoples.

Trivia
The emblem on the front of the package below the Rammstein emblem is identical to that of the 1980 Summer
Olympics in Moscow, a possible tribute to the Olympics lead vocalist Till Lindemann was to compete in.
Most of the Nmes footage was taped in the old Arnes, but the close-ups of the band members were filmed
during the UK tour.
The outro is Scala & Kolacny Brothers's version of Engel.
Vlkerball was nominated for Echo Awards 2007 in the Best DVD category, which was won by Pink Floyd's
Pulse.

Emigrate is a metal band based in New York, led by Richard Z. Kruspe, the lead guitarist of the German band
Rammstein.

History
Kruspe started the band in 2005, when Rammstein decided to take a year off from touring and recording. In many
interviews, Kruspe says the idea for Emigrate came to him around Rammsteins Mutter era.
On September 5, 2006, members of the Rammstein.de newsletter were sent an invitation to the Emigrate newsletter
and given the chance to download the song Wake Up", a sneak peek of the upcoming album. Three song samples
were also posted on Emigrates website: My World, Babe, and Temptation. Fans voted Babe as being their
favorite, and newsletter recipients were allowed to download Babe in its entirety starting November 29, 2006.[2] On
May 21, 2007 the Emigrate Official Website opened and My World was made available for download, in its
entirety, to newsletter subscribers.
The video for My World has been released and can be viewed on the official website. The video will also be
included on the limited edition release of the album Emigrate. In addition to the video, My World is featured on the
soundtrack to the third Resident Evil movie, Resident Evil: Extinction. The soundtracks to the previous two movies
contained Halleluja and Mein Teil from Rammstein, respectively. On July 27, 2007 Richard made an appearance
on Bruce Dickinson rock show on BBC.[3] A video for "New York City" has been released and can be watched on
Emigrate.eu [4]. Richard has since left the Emigrate project aside due to Rammstein reuniting in the fall of 2007 to
work on their new album Liebe ist fr alle da which was released in October 2009, and also to take part in the
subsequent Rammstein tour. "My World" is currently featured at Philadelphia Flyers games at the Wells Fargo
Center.

Feeling B was a German punk rock band. They were known as being one of the first punk bands in the former
German Democratic Republic (East Germany).
The band was founded in Berlin in 1983 and started out firmly grounded in the underground punk scene. Over time,
Feeling B's popularity grew greatly and at the end of the German Democratic Republic, it was one of the most
respected and influential Eastern German bands despite their underground status. Feeling B concerts were
improvised.
Frontman Aljoscha Rompe, a Swiss living in East Berlin, supplied the vocals to the band's restless, enduring punk
anthems. His accompanying keyboardist and guitarist, then universally referred to as "Flake" and "Paulchen", have
since found fame as keyboardist Christian "Flake" Lorenz and rhythm-guitarist Paul H. Landers of Rammstein.
Rammstein's singer, Till Lindemann, also participated once with Feeling B for the song "Lied von der unruhevollen
Jugend", for which he is credited on the album Hea Hoa Hoa Hea Hea Hoa. Rammstein twice played this song live
in St. Petersburg and Moscow in 2001, during their 'Mutter' tour.
The group disbanded mid 1990s. On special occasions, the band members would get together for individual concerts
at punk festivals, until Rompe died in November 2000 of an asthma attack.
There is a book available on Feeling B.[1] [2]
Eventually Flake rediscovered tapes of old and partial unreleased recordings. This unreleased material and remixes
of some already known songs were released as Grn & Blau in 2007.
