Thanks for the link to Rammstein in the petition thread. I didn't want to hijack that thread so I posted here. My friend's son got me started by lending me "Sehnsucht." I've been hooked on them ever since. I like to listen to "Los" while playing SH3. Every time I fire a torpedo that song comes into mind. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

"Sehnsucht" is indeed a very good album (like all Rammstein (http://www.rammstein.com) albums, it sounds especially good in the car). I slightly prefer the 1st and 3rd albums - "Herzeleid" and "Mutter" - as they are a bit heavier/harder and the vocal melodies sound more Germanic.

These are my favourite Rammstein tracks from each successive album:

Herzeleid:
Du riechst so gut
Seemann
Herzeleid
Weißes Fleisch
Heirate mich
Herzeleid
Rammstein
Alter Mann

Sehnsucht:
Bück Dich
Du Hast
Engel
Klavier
Bestrafe Mich

Mutter:
Rein Raus
Zwitter
Ich will
Mein Herz Brennt
Adios
Sonne
Links 234

Reise, Reise:
Mein Teil
Reise, Reise

Rosenrot:
Benzin
Mann Gegen Mann
Zerst¶ren
Hilf Mir
Ein Lied

My favourite tracks ever are "Rammstein" and "Seemann" from the first album. The live versions on "Live aus Berlin" are even better. If you've seen and liked any of their videos, I would recommend the "Lichtspielhaus" DVD also, which has all the videos from the first 3 albums (i.e. the best stuff) plus some live clips (including "Rammstein" and "Seemann")

I've seen them live twice now. Their stage show is an unforgettable experience - LOTS of fire and big explosions. Go and see them if you can!

Oh - and if you're a fan of the track "Seemann" check out this cover version (http://www.apocalyptica.com/releases/seemann.php) by Apocalyptica (http://www.apocalyptica.com/) with Nina Hagen (strong, husky German female vocalist http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif)

I'd like to go see them, but I guess they don't come to Canada very often. If they ever make it to Toronto I'd make an attempt to see them.

Celeon has an eclectic collection of various articles. I see you have the original release cover for Herzeleid. I'm stuck with the later version. The first song of theirs I heard on my local hard rock station was "Du Hast." I knew that like most bands they would have other good material that never gets aired on the popular radio stations. Once I borrowed a disc I had to get more.

I checked the tour dates on herzeleid.com (http://herzeleid.com) - they played the USA and Canada (including Toronto) in 2001, but they haven't even played in the US since then... strange for a band that is so big now. Maybe record sales have not been as good for them in North America.

They were once arrested after an concert in the u.s.

Something about an giant ***** they had on the stage but i dont know details. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

But i believe it has something to do with the columbine high school massacre.

The two boys that commenced it had several Rammstein CD´s and "OF COURSE" this was the reason for everything.

At least in the eyes of the media and many parents. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

An awesome logic. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/354.gif
If you dont like the obvious reason than choose someone or something else you can blame it on.
That makes things so much easier.

I think this could be the reason why they decided not to tour through the USA since then.

They think theyre not welcome everywhere.

There's no end to the idiocy that happens after a tragedy like Columbine; with people looking for some "cause." What often gets overlooked in these school shootings is how the shooters were repeatedly victimized by the popular kids. It happens in just about every school; there's always an "in" crowd, the beautiful people, the jocks and nerds and so forth. There's always an underclass which is often picked on. Once in a while the teased kids strike back, with such tragic consequences. Often they kill themselves at the end. Looking through their music library for the "cause" is a red herring. If there is any link with music, it is because the kid identifies with the sentiments expressed in the music. The music is not the cause, it is a symptom of the underlying sadness.

If you want to be silly about it, you can find a "link" with almost anything. I bet that if you studied all the mass murderers, you would find that a high percentage of them had bought groceries in the last week. A cause? No, just a coincidence.

Your absolutely right about it being a "symptom"

Music for me has always been an outlet...If I can emphasize with certain lyrics and a mood of a song then that to me is therapeutic...not detrimental.

People blame a lot of material things on Columbine, which doesn't make sense (blame the guns, the laws or the music???). Columbine happened because of something not material and that was the care (or who didn't care) for those two youngsters. Parenting is an awsome responsibiltiy and it requires constant checks by those involved. I'd like to know how much their parents paid attention to there children running up to that event.
