Rammstein is a cult German metal band formed in 1994, in Berlin after winning a competition. East German guitarist Richard Z. Kruspe escaped to West Berlin after the wall fell in 1989 and teamed up with Till Lindemann (lead vocals). Lindemann became the impressive frontman leading the band to be tagged as the inspiration for the New German Hardness movement of the nineties. They received international notoriety for their song and video Amerika. They were dubbed Kraftwerk on Steroids. Judge for yourselves.
Thoughts on Songs with Rammstein

Rammstein are edgy. Are edgy when it comes to gigs, when it comes to cover art, when it comes to lyrics. However, they don't try to confuse you with counterfeit complexity, no no, they are firm and to the point. Listen to this chorus, then watch the video clip, showing indigenous people having a BigMac and a coke, on the moon and you'll get the picture without any doubts...
Rammstein apart from German, have also used other languages in their lyrics, the most obvious would have to be English...This one is a combination of Germans and English, forming a true Rammstein humorous song which is about the on-going sex mania and how simple things would just get if we would kindly ask for it....
Rammstein took german in the foreground, their success was too much of an explosion to let people not minding what their lyrics are all about, since they have a militaristic image as a band... This song comes to clear things up for accusations for being right-wing. The chorus repeats the word "left", stating the obvious.
