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.

      It was amazing, I read it was free except for VIP tickets, so of course it was crowded. But I'm sure they never expected so many people.

        It was not 307 000, it was 691!!! (nearly 700 000)
        Unbelievabel !
        (Web-Seite and the others

        "Такого в России еще не было! 691 000 человек собрались в одном месте в одно время, чтобы отдаться во власть безудержной энергии рока. «Рок над Волгой» ежегодно устанавливает все новые рекорды, но такого мало кто ожидал: рекорд посещаемости прошлого года был побит уже к 17 часам, когда на фестивальной поляне находилось более 370 тысяч человек; через час эта цифра достигла 450 тысяч. К началу выступления группы Rammstein в 21:20 на поле Петра-Дубрава насчитывалось свыше 600 тысяч человек." (c)

        "... At 15:00 it was 370 000... 1 Hour later - 450 000 ... and at the beginning of Konzert (21:20) more than 600 000... "

        It was great und Rammstein was great!

        Tickets free& but it was a Festival, so - "all inklusiv"

                      Me too
                      As for "see and hear" - management of the perfomance was perfekt and actually it was expeсted, that so many people come
                      Rammstein brought 8 tracks (!!!) with technik and more than 100 service-people team

                      So, acoustics was gut, no problem to hear (say people)
                      and yes, screens - to see

                      I know links ist not allowed, but for 1 day maybe

                      hier ist the video, and you can see screens and the crowd and all others

                          Be sure I hate this situation. I always hope External change the rules, but after reading this you will understand why he does not.

                          Here is the explanation:

                          Originally posted by August 26th, 2009 by External on Affenknecht News

                          This is a story of one little man who liked a band from Germany. This band was called Rammstein. 5 years ago I decided to collect all information, adore the band, to visit concerts and learn all lyrics. I created a website to share to positive things with all other fans. I made a lot of friends.

                          After some time I managed to do this website in 10 languages, which was a great success in my life. Me (, Jeremy Williams ( and Gerald Blachfellner ( became the 3 most important administrators of Rammstein fansites. We served 80 % of the fans, we provided them with information and made free advertising for the band. We never wanted anything but to talk about our favorite band. We became celebrities and without us the band wouldn’t be where it is.

                          Then one day I went to a vacation. It was pretty nice, but when I returned back home I had an e-mail in the inbox. Universal Music and Pilgrim Management noticed that one user uploaded some copyrighted photos on my forum. They wanted money from me, just because one asshole uploaded the crap to the forum. I was really shocked and wanted to kill myself when I saw the invoice.
                          For all the hard work I was in a position that no one wanted to be. But I have studied the copyright law and have some experience with it. I was prepared to solve everything as soon as possible. I wanted to be really friendly with Rammstein management. I took a loan and paid all the fees by myself and then asked all fans to contribute.

                          Now it is a question of the year: will we continue or terminate our activity? Affenknecht is the new name (this name was chosen after the domain name Rammstein-Europe was “given” to Rammstein management). I appreciate if you – dear fans – will still visit the website.

                          There will be some changes. Comments on the news page will be always moderated and appear after approval. How will the forum work is still to be determined. There must be some kind of regulation to prevent users from uploading copyrighted content without permission. How this will be solved is not known yet.
                          We do this for the band! We support them and will keep moving!

                          Upon receipt of further information I will inform you accordingly. Thank you all.

                          Hi all, I am glad to inform you, that all links from the former website will be redirected to

                          Thank you all for the donations you made, now it’s about 6 % of the required amount, thank you very much. If you feel, you can still increase it, it would be welcomed. I paid the rest to keep it alive (oh god, be generous to me in following years).

                          About the forum: it will be reopened after some more adjustments. I don’t want to be in danger that someone links bad content. I was advised by my lawyer and signed a document, that I will re-register the domain name to Rammstein management. We don’t want anyone to be confused and our new name shall be clear for the newcomers that we are just a fansite, not the official site for Europe. The domain will be transfered about in a month, till this time I can inform all visitors about this change.

                          I was also informed by the legals that they are now checking the content of the website and will inform me if everything is OK. The forum will be probably reopened after this verification step. Unfortunately I can not say exact time. Upon receipt of further information I will update you accordingly.

                          Now I will write some news about the desired single…we expect it soon.

                          I love you all!
