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.

  • Rammstein publish a rectification about Heino's new in Bild has posted a note in German, about a report on Bild newspaper. Heino includes a cover of Sonne in his new album. This is the note:

    Rammstein haben mit Befremden die heutige Berichterstattung der Bild-Zeitung zur Kenntnis genommen, die Band befände sich in einer Auseinandersetzung mit Heino zu seiner Coverversion des Rammstein Titels „Sonne".
    Das ist nicht der Fall. Rammstein hat sich hierzu nicht geäussert. Die im Text genannten Zitate, die der Band in den Mund gelegt werden, spiegeln ausdrücklich nicht das Meinungsbild von Rammstein wieder.

    Rammstein have taken with astonishment today's report in Bild newspaper noted, the band would be in a conflict with Heino in his cover of Rammstein song "Sun".
    This is not the case. Rammstein has not expressed this. Mentioned in the text citations, are the band put into the mouth mirror, specifically not the opinion of Rammstein again.

    A good translation would be highly appreciated. I wonder if this is a marketing strategy or an error.

      "It was with astonishment that Rammstein learned from today's report in Bild, that there is a conflict with Heino about his cover-version of the Rammstein song "Sonne". This is not the case. Rammstein has not expressed any conflict. The quotes from the text are words put in the mouth of the band, and does not express Rammsteins' opinion"

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."

          Typical Bild , the tabloid of Germany. I wonder how this magazine never gets any trouble or doesn't lose any readers for all the BS they spread.

              Am I under the correct impression that it is the German equivalent of the Daily Mail? Or is it the Sun?

                Stone me if that doesn't actually work! I sat here and gigled a bit, (I may have even tittered somewhat), but it was actually enjoyable. Far better than certain other videos that Maya posted previously to torture me..............

                I would say it's more akin to the Daily Star.

                  For me he failed a bit to make it his own song. It's a good song, but all the good parts have more to do with the original Rammstein song itself, he as performer doesn't really add much. The chorus is well sung, but it's not much more than a Till-impression.

                    Ssssh, Maya is very cruel. I'm sure she has lots of those, don't provoke her, we don't want more torturing videos

                      We have a new surprise.

                      After the second gig in Wulheide, where Till wore a blond wig and dark sunglasses., according to Rammstein have invited Heino to Wacken, Till and Heino will perform Sonne together, I can't imagine such a duet, maybe again is not true. What do you think?

                        ^Everytime I see Bild being cited as a source I immediately take the news with a grain of salt.
                        I don't know whether it's true or not, I think we won't know the answer until concert. But suppose Bild doesn't make anything up this time: how would it look like? Hm.....
                        What would Heino do, anyway? I guess singing along with Till?
                        Or making some funny dance in the background, lol :P

                              Very nice of Rammstein to pick him up for a show . I approve.
                              I know some fans are making a big fuss, but they have a problem, not Rammstein or Heino. I think they know some ppl like to mock him and throw dirt at him. Non-conformist guys, that's what I like
