  1. I’m pretty sure they started all the fires out here in California from Germany. 🙂 And as much as that band scares the crap out of me, that keyboard player cracks me up.

  2. Well, I’ve argued a long time that rock has fascist tendencies. Leave it to the Germans to offer undeniable proof…. 😉

    Rocks like hell, though, doesn’t it…?

  3. I was watching this video the other night while my wife was trying to get something done in the other room – she asked me to stop, not because she didn’t like it, but because Du Hast was disturbing enough that it demanded she pay attention, and she was busy.

    The actual music video is even more disturbing.

    Anyone got a link to a translation of the lyrics?

    • You
      You have
      You have me

      You
      You have
      You have me
      You have asked me
      You have asked me
      You have asked me
      And I did not say anything

      Will you until death does sever
      Be upright to her forever

      No

      Will you til death be her rider
      Her lover too, to stay inside her

      No

  4. This song actually inspired my band to do a German heavy metal song called “Glockenspiel”. Yes there’s a glockenspiel in the song, and yes we reference David Hasselhoff.

  5. I’ve read somewhere that the song is also a play on words with German wedding vows. And that one form of the word “hassen” (hate) is hasst. I think they just wanted to mess with people. 🙂

  6. fikshun – yeah, East German – you mean, like the Prussians?

    Sam: So, when’s Rammstein gonna tour with Dethklok?
