Rammstein


Rammstein is a German industrial metal band. Most of their songs are sung in German, and as such, there are many people (Some of which, I know.) that have learnt German, for the sole purpose of understanding their lyrics. In addition to being known for very controversial songs, Rammstein is also known for their stage shows. As such, a couple of the videos I post will come from their DVD, Völkerball. Also, if you aren't familiar with this band, don't know German, and want to find the translated lyrics, I highly recommend Herzeleid.com Although, the owner has seemed to disappear, and as such about half of their latest album isn't translated.

This first song, Mein Teil, ("My Part") is my personal favorite. It's based on a true story about someone that found a willing person to be eaten. And yes, "teil" ("part") has two meanings here.



Next is Feuer Frei! ("Fire At Will!"). Other bands rock. Rammstein burns!



And lastly, Frühling in Paris, ("Springtime in Paris") which is a slow song, and one of my favorites from their latest album, Liebe Ist Für Alle Da. ("Love Is For Everyone")

  15. I love these guys. However, I didn't learn German just for them. I learned it in high school because we had to take a language and it was unique. And now... I know what they're singing. And I can appreciate their songs even more.
