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.

    Most artists seem to announce a cancellation only after they have found a way to postpone the show, and already have a new date in place. In other cases, they wait until the authorities close the event, in that sense they might get some financiel support.

    Either way, I am pretty sure that both the band and the organizers at this point are almost certain that the European-leg will not take place, and most likely the American-leg as well.

      Till Lindemann infected with corona and now in emergency care? Many sites report.

          Probably from Russia then, where people don't seem to be worried yet...

            I does say it's not life threatening, but I agree The last week in Russia should have been canceled.

                I'm shocked. These are really strange time.

                I really wish him a good recovery, and I hope his family stays healthy as well. There is very little information about this situation, however it does seem that he has gotten a little better since he was first put in the hospital.


                • #83
                  OMG, I hope he recovers...

                    From Richard's instagram:
                    "Hi everyone! My family and I are perfectly healthy. I'm sorry to have mislead some of you, it was not my intention. At times liked this it is easy to see how fragile our world is and I just wanted to let you all know how much love and appreciation i have for all of you. So a big Love to you all. RZK"

                    I was totally confused at first, he has not really done anything to "mislead" us. However, it might be a response to all the outrage after he made a post on instagram that read "Have I ever said thank you my friends ?Now it’s the time.Thank you." on March 14th. It appears that made some people think he was saying goodbye, or was having health problems.

                      The Belgian newspaper De Standaard reports that Till has floated between life and death, but seems to be recovering right now. Though they are carefull and state "according to german sources".

                        Many newspapers are reporting about it here, but all use the same sources.

                          It might be better to wait a while, and see if there is any official statement coming from either Till, his managment or the band. Bild has since updated their article, and now claims that he wasn't sick because of the Corona-virus, it was just extremely high fever and pneumonia.

                          There is so much speculation going on, and we only have one source (Bild).


                          • #88
                            It seems now that Bild have retracted and only confirmed he's in hospital with pneumonia.

                              It is possible that he got pneumonia from something else, but in these times covid19 is the most probable cause.

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."

                                They also now say he was tested and it was negative. I think perhaps his management might give an official statement, now his hospitalisation is out.
                                Bild is a gossip rag, not known for their accuracy in reporting.
