a rammstein fan

Joan Hexe: I didn’t meet Rammstein’s music.. It flew through the air, bit into my brain with it’s massive, sharp teeth and proceeded to shake the fuck out of me until every sense in my body screamed.. how could I resist ?

Madyson Blair I first listened to Rammstein when I was nine years old—my friend showed me the song Mutter, and I felt an instant, deep emotional attraction to the band that I had never felt for anything before. Ten years later, I revisited their music while exploring the main villain of my novel series (who I knew had lost his mother) and came upon the song Mutter again only to feel the exact same emotional effect full circle…as if I always knew on an unconscious level that the song and the band itself was meant to hold deep meaning for me.

Naomi Morrow: Sharing a house at uni with an East German girl called Nicole, she lent me the first two albums and I played them to death! I told her that I would buy them but she said that I would have to get them from Germany, I went into Cardiff and found them both, plus a tshirt…she was really excited that the band had become so popular in the UK…we went clubbing in Bogiz niteclub and they played Du Hast we both went nuts! Been a massive fan ever since! that was back in 1998!

Danny Johnson: I typed “The best music video in the world” into youtube and the Keine Lust video came out at the top of the list. Been hooked ever since.
Violetta Malaparte As a child I fell in love with a song and I wondered for such a long time how was it named. Many years later I found out it was Engel. Last summer I started studying German, and Rammstein lyrics are perfect to improve my grammar and vocabulary. Ich liebe euch

Jacqueline M. Hines: Had an interesting Mythology class where we could study any subject related to Human Psychology. I chose (the subject) “Cannibalism” and it’s no surprise that within minutes of researching via the internet, I was introduced to the music video and backstory for Mein Teil. Well, let’s say that I became completely consumed by Rammstein’s music after that, especially in terms of subject matter. Rammstein just has this right kind of intelligent, dark humored and thought provoking presence in both their music and lyrics that made me such a devoted a fan.
