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 Map Project - Need Participants!

    Hiya, I'm leiderschneider on Tumblr but I thought I would open up the opportunity to take part in this little project I have going <3 I have 63 participants so far, and would love more! Here's a link to the original post:

    But this is the post in full:


    Leah here, and while I haven’t been in the fandom for long, I’ve come up with an idea I’d like some fans to take part in. <3

    I think it would be an awesome idea to send Rammstein a map (with a letter on the back explaining why), including the locations of fans across the world to show just how many people are (still) invested in their music and looking forward to the next album / tour! While they probably already know this, I think it’d be pretty cool for them to see it physically.

    I have done the map project successfully before, for Monty Python’s Michael Palin - I sent him a map and got a spectacular personal reply for him, so it can work! See here for evidence: http://thepalincleeselovechild.tumbl.../BAFTA-project

    and here:

    If you can’t see the above, what I will do is purchase a map, some stickers and a biro. I would write down your name (or nickname. You can give me your full name or not. I would even include Forum username if desired) , age (if you want), and location (be specific or just tell me your country). I would then put a star, representing you, on the map and write a letter on the back explaining the whole project!

    SO, in SHORT, this is what I need people to send me in a message:

    1. Your name (can be nickname, first name or full name)

    2. Age (not necessary, but if you want to!)

    3. Location (as specific or just a country if you like. for the UK, please give a county xD )

    4. OPTIONAL - a message thanking them. I might be able to include it in the letter <3

    Even if you don’t want to take part, share it with fans who might not be on the forum<3 Thank you !

    If none of this makes sense, feel free to comment and I'll get back to you! Thank you <3
