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 saw the video and it was rather funny. Some people are saying that Rammstein sold their souls and other negative stuff, but can't they see the humor of it in this?


    • #17
      ^Apparently, they can't. And that "soul selling" rubbish makes me laugh. I think it was very sweet of Rammstein to invite Heino onstage, you can tell that he had good fun and enjoyed himself. A very classy move from Rammstein guys - I bet they expected these kinds of negative remarks from their "fans" but why should they care?

      I wish some fans were less egoistic and more open-minded...

        I tend to find that metal fans are some of the most closed minded musically - when i saw they may invite heino onstage at Wacken, Europe's premiere metal festival, I just thought it was funny. It is actually a predictable move, that's the kindo of sense of humour Rammstein have.

          Exatly! My first response were: They got to be joking! And then I laughed, it's just the thing that makes me love them even more. A metal band with a good sense of humour and don't take themselves toooo seriously

            heino seems to have enjoyed himself at Wacken too:


            • #21
              ^I saw it before, but I don't understand it.


              • #22
                ^ Broadly: He had a great time, the band are all very nice guys with a good sense of humour, and the audience seemed to like it. When asked about some in the audience giving him the finger, he said he weren't looking at that, and couldn't be bothered. He was at an age were if you didn't try something new it would never happen.

                I'm sure somebody can give a more correct translation, this is just the gist of it.

                  ^Thank you very much. I know I should learn German, but ...


                  • #24
                    ^My German is very rudimentary, I have been thinking about taking some classes. I had German in school, but that is many years ago. I went to Hamburg for a four-day-trip earlier this year and was surprised by how little I remembered.
                    I guess learning Dutch have pushed the German even further from memory :-)

                      Yeah at approx 75 he really doesn't know how long he has left - those Wacken cunts are so lucky I would have loved to have seen Rammstein play Sonne with him

                          Wtf, he's even covering Die Toten Hosen and Die Prinzen... Will be a interesting record, but I doubt if it 'll be good.

                            ^After listening to his Sonne version I agree with that, he has a very different style, and the song sounds very different.


                            • #29
                              ^ Did you actually listen to the whole song? I'm impressed, I gave up 20 sec. in ;-)

                                ^Yup, the whole song and more than once, jajajajajajajaja. I can't stand many covers, but I find this one funny and always make me smile.
