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.

        • For those who don't read german press, there has been a recent controversy around Till the last couple of days.

          In his latest book, there is a poem in which a women is being drugged and raped. The story is being told from the perspective of the rapist, who explains why he is so attracted to women when they are helpless and not awake.

          It started with a article titled "Till Lindemann's new book: Poetry or a crime?", and since then a couple of other newspapers and websites have written about it. The publisher "Kiwi Verlag", responded by defending Till and saying that almost of his lyrics are written from the first person perspective of the antagonist.

          It seems that the outrage has calmed down, although "Kiwi Verlag"-social media is filled with angry comments.


          • Nothing new, not the first time he writes that way, I don't know why they are surprised.

              Indeed! I guess in several songs it's a theme (Liebe ist für alle da, Wiener Blut, probably Liese and maybe even songs as early as Weißes Fleisch), and I think he even goes worse than that (like Hallomann).

              There's still a very old-fashoined group of readers that can't quite make the difference between the "I" in literature and the author behind it. These people tend to forget that the most popular genre in the world are crime novels, hence thousands of authors could be considered cold-blooded murderers from that point of view (and for those who read the thrillers of today: rape isn't that uncommon, and practically always we get parts where we read form the point of view of the agressor).

              And to be honest: in this poem, as well as in the Rammstein songs, I find you can (mostly) clearly read that there's some self-criticism to this behaviour. In these poems and songs, it's always pointed out in some way that there's something very wrong about this act, that it's a dark, repulsive behaviour that can't last, that in the end it's quite destructive, mad and sad.

              Dort wo der Horizont
              Sich mit dem Meer verbindet
              Dort wollt' ich auf dich warten
              Auf das du mich dort findest
