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.

  • A new Rammstein Lyrics Translation Page

    Hi there,
    I guess this would be the right place to post a note about my new website. After reading through many webpages and many different translations/interpretations of Rammstein lyrics I decided to give it a go and put up my own. Maya was so kind to have a look prior to (Thanks Maya!) so I wouldn't look like a complete fool. I did not invent the wheel sort of speak and in particular my interpretations of the songs I've completed thus far are just that, "my interpretations." Since my work doesn't always give my the time I cannot do it all at once, so as of now I posted the Mutter and Sehnsucht albums. Why not go in chronological order? Well, I had translated a few songs for myself prior to and they happened to be songs from these two albums. So I just started where I left off.

    I do know this, it's a lot of work and those who've done it know what I am talking about. It's been a long time since I had my own website and there was a lot to learn about website publishing and ftp uploading. The pages may load slow due to the graphics imbedded. If that's too much of a problem let me know and I see if I can optimize it a bit more.

    Anyhow, I hope you like it and if you're interested every page has a few comments attached to it as far as my own thoughts and things I could find on the web. Some of it may surprise you. Drop me a line if you like, but be kind. LOL

      Congratulations for the initiative, which I think it is a very clever one. How do you feel about letting other websites re-publish your translations (as long as they give you credit for them obviously)? Also, do you consider posting translations to more languages, if you find bilinguals of other languages other tan german/english?
      "Which is better, eternal happiness or a ham sandwich? It would appear that eternal happiness is better, but this is really not so! 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."

        Thanks, though I am not sure what you mean by clever.

        I don't mind if others re-publish (and yes, they can credit my website). There's so many other translations out there, there's really no secrets just different translations. I am not sure at this point about other languages. It's quite a bit of work to set up the site and by the time I am done I may have close to 200 pages on just the German translations if you include the comments pages. I can probably make a better decision on that when I am finished.
