Rammstein Lyrics


Rammstein: From A to Z

A - Albums

There is no other band that sounds remotely like Rammstein.
The East German sextet's unique blend of metal, industrial,
techno and classical musical elements has made it one of
Europe's most successful rock bands ever since the 1995
release of its debut album HERZELEID (which went platinum
in several Euro territories). Its successor SEHNSUCHT
(released abroad in 1997, and as the band's U.S. debut in
January 1998) was not only the logical continuation of the
musical concept, but also even more More...

Review about Rammstein songs
Translation is quite off. | Reviewer: Nisse
    ------ About the song Sonne performed by Rammstein

This translation is really bad, so it's not strange that many seem to think up strange back stories and messages from this lyric.
The worst part is "and the world pays according to ten".
This is ".. Und die Welt zählt laut bis zehn." meaning ".. And the world counts loudly towards ten".
This is really simple grammar, only old google translate etc might miss interpret it I think..
When you have this part correct it's extremely obvious that it's about boxing at least as the surface message.

I'm not fluent in German, but I can do a hell of a lot better than this. So I might make a cleaner translation of it soon.

    ------ About the song Du Hast (English Lyrics) performed by Rammstein

Thanks for being close, every one says it is hate but got is closer to have and if you know anything about German you would know that there is a change in tense where there is no way the word can me hate thus to except what seems like a simple mistack is really disgraceful to the band and probably why they dislike Americans

social critics? | Reviewer: riyelpicture
    ------ About the song Mutter - Translation performed by Rammstein

despite of it's poetic lyrics and catchy music, I think this single has deep social critics in the lyric.. as modern day people tend to live in a free relationship, there are possibilities that they will born sons that the mother don't even want to born this little guy; and the father that cannot considered as legally a father..; lefted, the son then feels "beseitigt" or eliminated.. that's why then he cursed his own "mother" (eventhogh I think he not really cursed his mother, but he only cursed her action to not gave him even a name, not breastfeeding him, and so on; I think he loves his mom, and he love her with his own way..this could be seen from the latest part of the lyric, where there are chants "mutter...mutter". ) CMIIW..

intended indistinction | Reviewer: Norman
    ------ About the song Du Hast (English Lyrics) performed by Rammstein

A radio trivia contest recently would have accepted you have or you hate as the translation of du hast or hasst and gave the explanation the lyrics were meant to play on the similar words with diverse meanings and stir such debate as here. You should really fix it from you "got" me. That is just wrong.

Fear | Reviewer: Corey
    ------ About the song Ich Will performed by Rammstein

This song is great and puts the bad boy side that is in all if us right in our faces. Artists face these things and let us purge our "demons". Truth can be frightening and art is never safe- nor is life!... Hey natasha!! You can learn german by getting a book just like i did. It is fun and cool to learn on your own. To understand the thoughts of Rammstein is wonderful when you can take it in as intended.

Hasst oder Hast | Reviewer: diesexyEnte
    ------ About the song Du Hast (English Lyrics) performed by Rammstein

To be honest I would say it's hast, "du hasst mich gefragt" - "you hate me asked" makes no sense so it must be hast, and I'm guessing that they use the same in the previous lines.

This is not a love song | Reviewer: Graeme
    ------ About the song Ohne Dich performed by Rammstein

The first time I ever heard this, I only understood some of the German, but it was enough to make me want learn more German and inspire me that it was one of the the most powerful love songs ever written. Except Lindemann has openly stated that the song is about heroin addiction, it's not a love song.

Du Hast | Reviewer: Ronin
    ------ About the song Du Hast (English Lyrics) performed by Rammstein

Guys(and girls),my name is Ronin,I am 14 turning 15 in a year,I've been listening to Rammsteins music for close to 2 years now,whether is "hast" or "hasst",who gives a hoot(other than the people who don't like their music but that's not for me to decide)

This song still makes sense no matter what language you put translate it to,so I agree with the reviewer named "Robert",come on people,if you don't like the way its translated of wat nog al so be it,nobody can say what you should like.

The point being,if you don't like the music,don't listen to it,so maklik soos dit.

Real meaning behind Keine Lust | Reviewer: lolerman
    ------ About the song Keine Lust performed by Rammstein

You guys should totaly check out Making of Keine Lust. To save you some time I got the most relevant quotes from the video:

"Actualy we just thought: all your senses get saturated after all the years. You've made good, you have money, you have too much and nothing interests you anymore, nothing. And that is the idea: in the end, you just return to the place where you once began. That's why we got together once again, to perform again, to make music together. It's what it's all about. This fat stuff is simply a symbol of all the abundance. In reality you just want to repeat the beginnings."

"Normaly bands try to look nice - athletic and attractive, and we do the complete opposite: We're old, we're ugly and we're fat."

Also for the part where Flake joins the rest of the band:
"Flake is the punk in the band, he's always anti-something. If Flake has no interest in something he has no interest. He's interested in nothing. That's why he appears much latter on in the video, as he wasn't interested in joining in at the start. He's not interested in walking or eating, which is why he's slim, everyone else is fat. Nothing interests him."
