Based on latest discussions on this forum, and studiing copyright laws, it is necessary to state out new forum mandatory rules, effective immediately, so, here we are.

LINKS TO MUSIC & VIDEOS: what is legal/what is not.
NEW RULES in the forum state:

From now on in our forum users shal NOT POST TOPICS THAT containin the following :
• Requests for or links to MP3s, music videos, or other files of questionable legality
• Bootlegs

So, please do not POST A LINK TO music or videos which does not directly originate from an officially legal site.

An OFFICIALLY LEGAL SITE is: or, universal music, a legitimate music site like MTV or VIVA. The links must be direct and linked only to the approved site. Any links which have copied and transferred the music or videos from an official legal site to ANYWHERE else are NOT OFFICIAL.

• Do not ASK FOR A LINK to music or videos. If there is a legal site for either listening or viewing, xTERNAL will provide the information in the NEWS section of

WHAT YOU CAN DO in the forums: You can DISCUSS a new song or a new video.

WHAT YOU CANNOT DO in the forums: provide illegal links or ask for links, give directions of any kind as to where something might be found (examples: file-sharing, other fansites, etc.). Screen caps will be allowed (within reason) AFTER a video has been made available through an OFFICIAL LEGAL LINK. Fan remixes of songs will be allowed (within reason) after the song has been officially released.

The above restrictions are necessary not because we are being “damn babies” or “. The reason is simply that RAMMSTEIN-EUROPE has made the decision to not be a facilitator of illegal activities involving copyrighted material. The reason for that is also clear. Rammstein’s Management has shown aggressive behaviour in combating copyright infringement.

Anyone who violates the spirit of the aforementioned expansion/explanation of what the RULES mean here as applied to music and videos (and this also includes the "making of videos") will meet up with one of the following consequences:


If you have ANY questions about what may or may not be acceptable here, you can always PM a Moderator and ask first before posting something that might get you in trouble here.

•any links to (or other sharing sites of a similar nature)are generally not allowed.
While some videos like fan made items or spoof animations are allowed, we do not allow linking to youtube. Oftentimes there is/are illegal videos of Rammstein performances to the side of the linked videos. Actual Rammstein Videos which are very illegal to be hosted by that site - therefore we cannot allow links to youtube to be allowed.

So, links to youtube are now allowed - ONLY IF it is a fanmade video by you, and does not contain bootleg footage or footage of live performances or released performances. Stills from photos found on the net are OK. A montage is OK. Clips of released footage are NOT OK.

Please try to understand that sometimes while we may allow a certain individuals fanmade videos, and deny another persons it is usually because the content in it could get the forums in trouble.

Also if some individuals post their fanmade video and it turns out to be bootleg footage that they filmed themselves at a concert and consider that "fanmade" - then we will have to reverse the ruling on allowing fanmade videos PERIOD!

Here is an update on what is considered "fanmade".
Fanmade is fanmade. You did it yourself. Like cut and paste. You creatd everything yourself. No footage filmed by someone else no clips. Still images are OK.
For example:
If you go out and find 6 banana slugs in the yard, dress them up in LAB outfits, and put the skinniest one in a paper boat and play the music to SEEMANN on a kazoo. That is fanmade.

If you have a coverband and you do your own video or you have footage of YOUR band's performance. That is fanmade.

If you have images that you sketched of how you think the video for a song should have been and you put it to music - I think we can allow that.

Use your creativity.

      I am so excited. I am a Rammstein virgin.
      I'll try to remember everything that happens and then write about it.
      Are we allowed to bring cameras ? Years ago we couldn't but now everyone has iphones and camera phones so I am hoping we can. My camera phone stinks.

        You can bring a camera.

        Have fun you two, I'm looking forward to some reviews!

                  I typed a huge post and then 1st my laptop tried to navigate away from the page and since that didn't work like it usually does, then it logged me out. I typed 2 more and everytime I go to post it says I can't post because i am not logged in. My browser must be very broke. I don't know if it is a virus or something wrong with my drivers on my computer.
                  So I got to the arena after 5pm. I met a girl in line which whom I got along with well. We ended up standing next to each other and hanging out after the show.
                  I stood on my left side, Paul's side of the stage. I was second row. The man in front of me was very tall and wide. Since I couldn't see around him in a traditional way I had to use my camera as a view finder.
                  I stood on Paul Lander's side.

                  Spoiler Alert

                  I had a great time. I loved the gig ! I loved the confetti. The soap bubble canon not so much. I am blind in one eye already and when i totally couldn't see got nervous. The whole show was so wonderful ! I was so active and alive during the whole thing.
                  I have to find a place to upload my pics. I wasn't sure that if I put them on Facebook if you can see them if you aren't my friends on there, not sure how that works. I do have a photobucket but not sure how much they hold. Was wondering about instagram and if they charge or just anyone can look at them.
                  I have to find my camera battery so i can charge it and take the pics off.

                    If you are going to type a very long post, has affenknecht open twice one with the post and other for example in the main page and actualise from time to time the second one, if you are inactive it logs you out. Or just type it and before posting open a new one and log in.

                    You can share them on Facebook, if you share them with public we could see them.

                    I'm glad you had a good time.

                      or just refresh page, log in and click restore saved content =o
                      it doesnt save too frequently though so you should rather copy it and just paste after you logged in

                        Many ways but the important is it happens to all of Us, so you don't have a problem with your laptop. You'll find the best way for you.

                          You may not wanna hear my review...I was very pissed off at first. Very. Edelweiss probably knows this because I vented to her on the phone a little x). But as circumstances go, I did not get to meet Edelweiss :S but I was with a group of my other friends. I was supposed to attend the meet and greet, but I was an hour late due to traffic killed me inside. So then I tried to talk to some people who told me to talk to a certain two people I know about a possible backstage pass, of course, they weren't there! (raged and pissed and very sad at this point). So I went and sat in my seat. I then got up and decided to buy the tour shirt. When I got in line for that, I befriended the person next to me (and he might be taking me to the Detroit concert today) and I told him my story and then we began telling other stories about Rammstein that changed our lives xD. I then got my shirt and went back to my seat. A half hour layer, DJ Joe Letz begins. Freaking awesome opener I totally have saved on my phone! Aaaand then he ends a half hour later and Rammstein enters...and I am RIGHT THERE! I then proceed to take pics and touch them as they pass by i miss Paul because the Rammstein flag Doom was carrying hit me in the face and Paul was behind the flag. But when Till passed, I grasped his hand and he didn't mind ...but I had to let it go because it was their entrance. They then made their entrance and the show began. Best thing ever! Lots if fire and Till's sexy voice . The only thing I am sceptical on is Büch Dich, which was all weird without the dildo. Till even flapped his arms like a bird...yeah. But after the show my brother insisted we leave right away. When we got to the car, my brother began talking with the people next to us and I got in the car and called a friend and vented to her about my misfortune. But, I was happy I had their makeup all over my hand and when I got back to where I was staying, I wiped my hand free of the makeup on a towel and now I have the towel in my room to show off xD

                                I agree with Snake, The most important is to be there, surf the net and you will see meet and greets are too quick, you don't have time for nothing, almost less than a minute with each member, signing and pic, if you are lucky a quick conversation.... So you were in The most important part, The gig..... I'm sure you enjoyed it a lot.
