All social critique should be done in German Metal. If it was all done like that I'd likely be a communist.. Is it just me or do the boys in the band look a little too much like the Baldwin brothers?

 

Damn song will be in my head all day now... cheesy chorus and all....

 

Oh BTW... I find it rather funny that a European country is so down on imperialism.. especially THAT country.

Come on, Rammstein? (Edit: A less savory website) posted a video of these guys relieving themselves on audience members. 14 year old kids still speak in awe and amazement over a song they recorded concerning two brothers' highly unorthodox love for each other. They come from a country where even the journalists complain that any story involving the United States has to have a negative twist - and that's it been that way since Clinton's Presidency.

 

To further prove a point, two very famous people did take Rammstein's previous political agenda to heart. Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris. The impact they had for this nation based on this troupe's guidance will forever be felt in our public education system.

 

Maybe age has made me cynical. Given their past record of invoking political change in the US and the fact that they soil each other for money, they just don't seem like a quality source of enlightenment.

 

Sorry about that edit - trying to make the point in the least questionable way possible.

I would just like to say your welcome to Rammstein. I know deep in their hearts they love the grand influence of US culture, such as the very music they play. Now I would have had more respect for there message if they sang in in a more traditional German style music.

You said it for me.

What was it Alice Cooper said about rock stars?

ahh, yes, Morons.

For those curious, here's one translation of the lyrics to Amerika.

 

We're all living in America

America is wonderful

we're all living in America

America

America

 

We're all living in America

America is wonderful

we're all living in America

America

America

 

When we dance I want to lead

when you turn yourself around alone

let us control you a bit

I'll show you how to walk right

 

We create a lovely round dance

the freedom plays from all violins

music comes from the White House

and in front of Paris stands Mickey Mouse

 

We're all living in America

America is wonderful

we're all living in America

America

America

 

I know the very useful steps

and I will protect you from missteps

and who does not want to dance at the end

does not know that he must dance

 

We create a lovely round dance

I will show you the direction

to Africa comes Santa Claus

and in front of Paris stands Mickey Mouse

 

We're all living in America

America is wonderful

we're all living in America

America

America

 

We're all living in America

Coca Cola, Wonderbra

we're all living in America

America

America

 

This is not a love song

this is not a love song

I don't sing my mother tongue

no, this is not a love song

 

We're all living in America

America is wonderful

we're all living in America

America

America

 

We're all living in America

Coca Cola, sometimes war

we're all living in America

America

America
