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.

  • Anybody watched it yet? I'm on school and it says 'explicit', so I don't think I should.. Also, admins, the video on the homepage plays automatically. It scared the crap out of me with that heavy sound.. not good for public visits either. I didn't expect it.

    I heard they cut the solo, which is one of the most thrilling parts of the song so that's a shame. I also read something about someone eating his own heart, it should be pretty creepy.. lol


    • I watched it. And I'm speechless. Chills throughout my whole body. I think it's not their best video but still amazing.

      • I was very very naughty and watched it on Tuesday my friend posted it on face book via `ollie` the idea was i would watch a little bit but the temptation was too much for me and i watched it all i am usually the last person to view vids and pics etc so did not feel too bad. Anyway verdict is as Abendwind said not one of there best but very different and totally awesome.

        • So awesome video. Rammstein did a good job again!


          • Whoa whoa whoa. I watched it. Can someone please tell me what the story is about? It seems like Till is some kind of maniac that comes and ruins the lifes of innocent children and kill their teacher, and after years of being held captive, the kids (now grown up) take revenge? And then Till eats his own heart? It seems like a prequel to the Piano version clip, but this one is miles better. It's amazing, much like their old stuff.

            Seriously the explicit part I.. damn that was awesome. Speechless.


            • I am lost. I have watched the piano version video and the "explicit" version. Is the piano version the "non-explicit" then, or am I missing a third video?

              I any case... LIke Benzin, I am speechless. The explicit video had me grabbing the chair until the end. The piano version made me think what a great stage actor this man could make.

              Genial. Genius.

              • What I and other friend think, is that the place is supposed to be an orphanage, and Till is the owner of it. He is also some kind of imortal demon who terrorizes/experiments with the children. I think the young and old nurse we see in the clip are both the same character, but shown across two time periods to make us see that Till is imortal. She might also be Till's henchman, since some scenes suggests he helps him out, although without a clear conscience.

                The scene in the room with the pool/cage shows us the "true" form of the demon portraied by Till, terrorizing the children in the pool. It also seems that they perform some kind of experimental/evil surgery in the orphanage. Melanie Gaydos, the bald girl of the clip, might be the mother of the men who escape the orphanage, since we see her giving birth (or so it is implied, by the scene were she is on the surgical table and in the outside with children under her tared skirt). It also seems that Till's character might have performed self-destruction, as shown when he eats his own heart; thats what makes the men able to escape, I think. Once they do, they burn the place down, probably to further destroy the demon.

                Finally, the clip for the piano version might be set after the events of this clip, with the demon in purgatory/hell. I infer this based on the fact that the clip is set in the room where the kids were kept hostage, and the fact that when the explicit version ends (with the place destroyed and burnning), we can ear the piano version kicking in.

                • and becouse he seems to die at the same place the children were locked up =o

                  i will try to watch again and understand it more thouugh.

                  this might be their video i like the most

                  it could be that he uses the tears and other stuffs (the syringe thingie could be seen to be used at the part with the bald someone too. but on an other place =o)
                  to slow down his aging or some thingie

                  • Well that was probably one of the best music videos I've ever seen. Top notch job, Rammstein. Wow.


                    • So, just watched it. Not sure what happened, but holy shit, it was good. Really didn't expect the heart-eating part...

                        =o i didnt expect anything else more than it thouugh. i mean, its related to heart, and stufff. and its the lyrics too, except the eating part. every other thing couldnt really be expected by me at leastt


                        • It's a good video and Snake's analysis is very legit. I didn't mind them taking out the solo, because they managed to replace it with a well-fitting part. Might not be their best video (hard to beat some of the previous ones anyway), but it's very well-made.
                          Kudos, rammstein!

                          • I have given up trying to analyse or understand Rammstein`s video`s or lyrics, the Du Hast debate went on forever, i just watch it and enjoy

                              I got that the burning hospital and heart were related to the lyrics, just didn't really expect it. It is a really cool reference to the title, though.


                              • I just noticed something.]On the Rammstein shop, the T-Shirt showing the members of the band when they escape from hospital as bearded older men is entitled "Geister" which is German for "Ghosts". So I suppose this means they are ghosts of some sort?
