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.

    Extra practice with Heiner Brand: the Rammstein-drummer sweats in the Leipziger Arena
    Matthias Roth

    Christoph Schneider was sweating like after a two-hour concert. The drummer of Rammstein was for the first time practicing in the Arena Leipzig with Stefan Kretzschmar’s All-Star Team. “Handball is really tough,” admitted the 47-year old. Schneider is, along with the once National-goal keeper Christian Ramota and Leipzig’s Vodkaria Captain Torsten Junghans, one of three goalies in Kretzsche’s team. The musician made a good impression at the practice, and blocked several shots. “Some of them were poorly thrown,” he toned down his achievement in a short video on SC DHfK Leipzig’s Facebook site.

    Kretzsche’s team, peppered with former top handball players, tallying almost 1400 Internationals between them, takes on the amateur team of Lok Mitte from Lepzig at 17:30. The box offices open already at 4 o’clock. After the show game, the real deal ensues for the 2nd Division players of SC DHfK. At 19:30, they’re up against Eintracht Hildesheim.

    Even if the game doesn't render any points for Kretzsche & Co, they take this game seriously and has the former German National Coach Heiner Brand and the present Polish National Coach Michael Biegler to coach them. Additionally, handball-legend Pit Kretzschmar, Stefan’s father, provides important advice.

    Brand is satisfied with his team. “They give a focused impression, the anticipation is clearly visible,” he says, with a wink, towards the end of the practice run. The goalkeeping, with drummer Schneider in the middle, is somewhat of a practice of itself. “Making sure we’ll have a good support in the defence,” says Brand.

    After the game, the celebrations have to wait. Whenever so many former World-class players and experts meet up, there’s a lot to discuss about the old times. The highlight of the Aftershow Party, held in a downtown pub in Leipzig, isn’t to celebrate the first minutes of Mother’s Day, but the birthday of Christoph Schneider. He turns 48 years old on Sunday.
