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.

    The video has been leaked, because the director posted it on his Vimeo. He quickly removed it, but if you really want to see it early, it won't be difficult to find it.

    Anyone who wants to enjoy the video in full quality and without spoilers should maybe stay away from this thread for the next hour before the official premier.

      Wow, so many details and hints to earlier videos and songs. I'll have to watch again - many times - but for now:

      I love both song and video

      Glad to see Ramm4 does not seem to be on the album, I was never really a fan of that song.

        I definitely liked the song. I am not sure I love it, but I strongly feel like this is their best single in many years (not best song in years, thought). I also liked the video. You can see without any doubt that it is the most elaborate and expensive video they have ever created.

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 simply love it, if the rest of the album is similar even Snake will be happy but May seems so far away

            I'm just blown away. Love the song and video. I might write an interpretation of the lyrics and video tomorrow or over the weekend.

            Really one hell of a comeback. There were rumors that the video got delayed because of heavy amounts of cgi that needed rendering. I think that rumor is now confirmed

                You can preorder the single and the album on Rammsteinshop:

                  Well.. I love it! I have to admit I wasn't sure on the first listen but it's grown on me every time I've listened. The video itself is beautiful and I love the idea of the actress playing the part of Germany throughout history. I can see them using the giant German flag again from the 2010 Summer shows for this track if they open with it.

                  Edit: Kind of annoying the video is stuck on 455k views. Curious to see how successful the video is so far.

                    It probably had so many viewsat the same time, the counter broke?

                    Anyway having seen and heard it now a few more times, I pre-ordered the album. Now I'm really looking forward to June 19th.

                      Counter is now working but I'm convinced they messed up. Now says 650k. I can't see how it goes from 455k in 20 minutes to only 650k in 3.5 hours I'm sure the band aren't bothered about clicks but still..

                        Wow. Rammstein will never get your bored. That band is pure art and I can’t wait to hear the rest of the new album. The video for Deutschland was so amazing. And I can’t stop listen to it.

                          I'm waiting for amazon. Each time I listen to it, I like it more and more, this time I'll have to wait less time than you (June 1st)

                            The discount-code on your ticket wont work on Amazon, but maybe with a cheaper p&p it'll be equal.

                              I could be wrong but I have a theory about the space scenes. During the space race (America vs. Russia's space programs), America won.. however all the scientists behind it were actually German brought over to the US after WW2 (operation paperclip). I think they are presenting that Germany was behind such an achievement. Also gives the Amerika video an extra layer with Germans on the Moon by German design
