Rammstein listed on the Index?

1102

In the past few weeks all Rammstein albums were on the verge of being listed to the Censorship Index and as a consequence further sales of the albums would have been stopped.
This summer, a worried Kreisjugendpfleger (“district youth guardian”) applied at the Federal Inspection Unit to have all Rammstein albums indexed as so-called “youth-endangering media”. After negotiations, this action has ceased as of the 10th of October. Fortunately, a review board composed of representatives from the state authorities, youth welfare services, tutors, church and religious groups, and book distributors and publishers did NOT subscribe to the view of the applicant that Rammstein lyrics were obscene, violence-glorifying, or sexually humiliating.

    Having Sex on a music video is way past the norm. They should be banned from music for good.

    rammstein hits too close to home for the hypocrites. their music is essential…cathartic. some things need to be written about. censorship is wrong.

    MY GOD! They can’t do that! I’d….

  • People who say Rammstein lyrics are obscene, violence-glorifying or sexually humilating are just stupid.
    Of course they’re hard, but almost all song texts of Rammstein have a deep meaning…

    Look at some texts of Bushido or Sido… THIS should be listed on the index!
