FORUM RULES ABOUT WEB-BASED LINKS TO MUSIC AND VIDEO'S

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: rammstein.com or rammstein.de, 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 www.RAMMSTEIN-EUROPE.com.

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:

POST BLOCKED, LINK ERASED AND WORSE.... BANNED IF NECESSARY.

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 www.youtube.com (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.

IF YOU SEE VIOLATION OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, REPORT IT BY USING THE EXCLAMATION MARK IN THE TOP RIGHT CORNER OF RELEVANT POST.

  • Do you remember hearing your 1st Rammstein song?

    The 1st song I heard was Du Hast (of course) I loved the way it sounded though! I heard it when I was 8 when my sisters cd player would turn on in the morning. At that time as a child it made me think of some one trapped in a car trunk trying to get out ...so 2 things from this 1) as an adult I realize I was even dark as a kid XD 2) the trunk theme matches rammstein twisted style anyways!

    Yup. It was Sonne, way back in 2001.

After all, nothing is better than eternal happiness, and a ham sandwich is certainly better than nothing. Therefore a ham sandwich is better than eternal happiness."

        Very first song was Du Hast on the radio. I thought I was in high school at the time, but it was released after I was already off to college...so I must've been home on a visit or something.

          Yep, it was in 2001 I think when I first saw the Sonne videoclip (they played it constantly on the music channels). Than Rammstein became really hot with the Ich Will video, Feuer Frei!, Mutter,... I was so impressed by this band. I was actually a major hip hop fan before that and Rammstein conversed me to metal.

            I'm not sure when and which song I first heard. They were in the background but not really on my radar for years. Then when they they played around the corner (literally) from where I live in February 2012 and I saw the posters all over town and the radio played them (Danish radio don't play metal ) I started to pay attention and get the CD's. The concerts were sold out when I awoke to the band of cause, so I've never seen them live

            I told you when I joined here, that I were a late convert

              ^ Never seen them? Aww... I've seen them just the once in May 2012, and really hoping to see them once more before they are done.

                The first song I have heard was Du Hast, in a random video, I have heard only the guitar riff, and then it all started, no regrets.

                  Probably, ""Sehnsucht" or Du hast", in 1997, because I remember buying the CD because I heard them on the radio.
                  I actually have the CD twice: One in Spain, buried under a ton of books, and another one here in the UK

                    First song I heard was "Du Hast" back in 97 or 98. I was 10 or 11...damn I'm old Lol! I knew they were singing in another language that wasn't Spanish. I later found out it was German. I saw the music video on MTV...back when they still showed music videos all the time Lol. My parents told me I wasn't allowed to watch it anymore. Then my dad gave me a history lesson about Germans and WWII Needless to say..."Du Hast" is one of my ultimate favorite songs. Plus it introduced me to the man I love...Till

                      ^Than you actually more or less my age .
                      Man, it's really astonishing that if people see/hear some materialistic or bombastic German stuff they still link it to WWII. Man that's 70 years ago and almost no German has anything to do with it, especially not ex-DDR people.

                      And I too vaguely remember MTV broadcasting music... But chances are we're both mistaking.

                        In the beginning my father really disliked the idea of me hearing German music, it came to the point he even told me I'm prohibited.
                        It all changed when he heard the song Ein Lied, which he really liked (he listened to the song 7 times in a row), and then he never told me a word.

                          I have simply no understanding for parents trying to "forbid" their children to listen to any kind of music. In my opinion that will only make them want to listen even more - it would have me, had my mother tried that tactic. Instead they should listen too and try to understand what it's about.

                          And yes, there is music I find abhorrent, but I would tell my kids why and hope my general upbringing would make them understand.

                            Sonne was the very first Rammstein song i ever heard. Waaaay back in the late 90's i think it was. Been hooked ever since!

                            All the fast was slow! All the loose is tight!
                            All the heat is snow! All the high was low!
                            All the grief is fun! All the, all the rain is sun!
