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.

  • Küss Mich

    So I have recently found a guitar cover by TheMarteec of Küss Mich, which sounds absolutely awesome.
    The thing is, I couldn't like the song, mainly because of the annoying cartoon sounds in it, and I just couldn't listen to the song without being annoyed by it.
    Therefore, I got an idea, I have mixed Marteec's cover with the song, and for 2 days I have been cleaning the song, in order to remove the sounds as much as I can.
    You can still hear it a bit in the beginning when Till starts to sing.
    I have asked Marteec's permission to upload the song, waiting for a response.
    What do you think, is it worth uploading?

    If it is worth it, is your decision - is it good enough, will others enjoy it? All depending of course on your getting permission from BOTH bands.

    Edit: Marteec is not a band but one guy with a guitar, but you still need permission from both, though I doubt he has?

      Well, I do think it's worthy to be uploaded, and I believe that those who love the song, and are annoyed by that sound as well, would like it better.
      Yet, reality may be different.
      I am waiting for his response.
      As for the band, come on, I don't think any of those who have uploaded Rammstein songs got a permission from the band itself.
      They just say I do not own the song, and all the rights go to the original owner.
      (I am planning to do the same, if he says yes.)
      But, I hope some would like it.

        I got a permission from TheMarteec, so I got a green light, and there it is!
        Tell me what do you think!
        If there are any mistakes in the song, please tell me, I may have forgotten to clean.
        One note, the ending, should've been fading out, but Youtube ruined it. :/

          "Improved" isn't that a rather big word to use? Maybe you should just write "edited"
          To be honest I didn't like Marteec's version, so it follows, I don't care much for yours either. Sorry.

            Well, I guess I was excited about it, but alright, fair enough, everyone has a different opinion.

              Xendar- I guess my ambivalence comes mostly from the fact that you are taking songs that have already been released and just removing the parts you, personally, don't like. I don't see this as improvement, because Rammstein spent countless hours creating this music, and were satisfied with the outcomes.

              If you want to change the songs, why not do covers? Make it your own rather than just taking out the bits you don't like?

                I am sorry Xendar, but I had to remove your link from your post. External explicitly forbids users from posting copyrighted material.
