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.

  • Best Seats

    Hi, I'm going to the Florida Show in April and I need the advise from people that already have seen the show.

    Did you prefer GA or seats? Normally I go to GA but I don't know if the show is best appreciated from an upper position

    ^You can also appreciate the show very well from seats, if you get to stay by the side of the stage, in the lower levels.

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."

      I always go for seats. I'm a bit small and if the ones in front of me are tall, I wouldn't be able to see the show. reviews

        I love seats for GA can be a bit crowded. Seats assures you of your own space.

          The one time I saw them live, I was in the very top row of seats in the whole arena, around halfway of the building. It was a bit far away but I think they were great seats, got a great overall view of the show on both stages (+ there was nobody behind me so I could go nuts )


          • #6
            I am very excited to watch this show.Please tell me for prior reservation of seats.

              I always go for seats when I watch their shows. It makes me see them better.

                I guess seats can be a good idea for Rammstein concerts, just to see everything without having to try to survive in that sweaty jumping crowd . I'm glad I wasn't at the front when I saw rammstein because many of their fireworks came from above the stage roof, which couldn't been seen in the front.

                  I had seats for the gigs in Birmingham & Newcastle last year. The Birmingham show was great as everyone stood up when the show started and got into the gig. Newcastle was very different when they started to play Sonne my partner and I were the only 2 to stand up in our section and I got asked to sit down by the people behind as they could not see, they all just sat down for the whole show and took pictures on their phones, really spoiled the show.

                  I have a trip to Lisbon & Madrid next month for both shows and have standing tickets for both as I'm not risking being stuck with boring people again.

                    For me it has to be standing, i love being at the front! Manchester last year i managed to get on the barrier and it was incredible! And everyone on the barrier at the end was handed a sticker saying "I survived first row with Rammstein"

                    The Barcelona gig next month i have standing so i plan on getting close as possible!
