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.

  • WIR HALTEN ZUSAMMEN - A Project dedicated to the 20th anniversary of Rammstein

    I'm sure most of you have read something about this project, but I'll post about it anyway. This is the original post by Rammstein USA

    Hi guys!
    We are pleased to present an international project kicked off by R+ USA and Rammstein Russia. The project is dedicated to the 20th anniversary of Rammstein - “Wir halten zusammen”. The essence of this project is to show the history of the development of the various international fan communities, the history of Rammstein’s creative career, and how the band unites and connects people from all over the world with their songs, videos and concerts.

    The project will include fan made videos and that's where we need your help.

    Each fan who wants to participate in the project can film their own video (only HD or HQ) in which he/she could share own opinion about Rammstein, favorite moments and memories from concerts and fan meetings (if there are photos, you can send them as well ) etc. Videos from each fan should not be longer than 10 minutes. The environment should be relaxed. Mess in the frame is not permitted. The presence of any coarse items, such as hanging carpets, abundance of posters, etc. is strongly discouraged. The shooting can take place in the apartment and on the street. It is highly desirable, and in the case of street absolutely necessary to submit separately a recorded audio file.
    The shooting should be STATIC. Camera must be securely fixed. Storyteller should take about 40:50% of the frame.

    The complete footage with the audio file must be sent to [email protected]. We will choose and submit best videos as a contribution from USA

    Most fansites are taking part in the project, so take a look at the fansite of your country, many are organising meetings, and collecting the videos, if you want to participate and don't know how, please contact us.

                    Yup, but there is a lot of work behind it, I expected a bigger reaction, so if somebody is interested, should know about its existence.
