Is this the directions music videos are headed? :)

I personally wasn't that impressed.. although it was nice to see some decent cinematography, with proper lights and shit. Kinda surreal but interesting. Like high budget style.

Anyway.. what do you think? Should this line be crossed, by a mainstream act?

I like it. The last minute of the video really surprised me though, I never saw (spoiler:) ejaculation in a music video before. Rammstein always wanted to be controversial and shit, so I am not that surprised after all.

And lately lots of bands have this kinda videos, check out the new single from Bowling For Soup, My Wena: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jBPWbA-oOg It is not that "hardcore" like Rammstein, but really amusing, I laughed a lot.

Damn...when they "sex scenes," they really meant it. I wasn't expecting that.

Umm, it's hard to make a judgment on this one. I guess they did kinda go over the line. It is basically porn, which isn't art. Not that I don't love porn, I just think porn should be porn and a music video should be that. Especially for a high profile band such as this. I feel like they're trying to be edgy and succeeding too well.

EDIT: Admittedly, I'm not that familiar with Rammstein. If this is the sort of thing they usually do--pushing the envelope like this--I guess it's okay.

OK, now my serious opinion:

I pretty much agree with what Randy said. I guess they just wanted to shock and gain more publicity with this video.

I couldn't believe what i was seeing, i was expecting it to contain some more nuditity than it's usual for videos, but i didn't expect THAT much.

Still, it was pleasant to watch :D

So is it really the band members, or some clever camera trickery, what with them grinning so manically?

Yeah, that really made me wonder, if those are really the penises of the band members... not that I am really interested in that, just a little. But I vote for clever camera trickery.

I could've chosen the title a bit more wisely but the point of this thread is to discuss music videos in general going over the line in some ways.. this is just what sparked the thing out of my head really. I think it's more GC since it's not other bands, because we could discuss Offspring videos doing different shit. I thought self esteem was a pretty weird and unique video.. so um.. I dunno. i felt it's best to discuss this in GC. I did consider other bands, but it isn't just other bands..

Of course I didn't say that you can compare Rammstein to Bad Religions lyrics or Shakespeare's poetry. But I like the way they are portraying Germany in that song. That's what I wanted to express.

Seriously? Wow. How exactly do you think they are portraying Germany? I mean, what are you getting out of this that I am perhaps missing? Because I'm not seeing anything I would like if I was German.

After hearing this though, I can finally start to understand why you guys think David Hasselhoff makes good music.

Till Lindemann (the singer) is Mr.Poet,you will never understand his lyrics....ok Pussy has simple lyrics,try to listen to songs like Spring,Mann Gegen Mann or Stirb nicht vor mir or older songs like Mein Herz brennt and Links 2,3,4.....in Links 2,3,4 they´re talking,that they´ve never been the fascist......and their hearts are on the left side......but you can translate their lyrics,but their sense is deep hidden....

Nothing disturbing. It was an honest question. I really wanted to know what you liked about it and assumed I might be missing something. And it turns out I was. I did not get that it was making fun of German cliches. Which was why I asked.

I still think it sounds terrible though.

you say that.


I was just making a pretty poor "Germans like bad music" joke.


Why is it so hard to get laid in Germany?

I doubt it is. Prostitution is legal. Doesn't get much easier than that. Just remember to throw the money on the floor when you're done so they know you're cool.

ad8, can you explain what you mean? All I'm getting that they're saying is that he (or people in general) just wanna have a lot of sex, and they're willing to go anywhere to do it. That's kind of a thing everywhere you go, and personally I think they described it in a really cheesy way.

Too big, too small,
Size does matter after all.
Too big, too small
It could be a little bigger

Mercedes-Benz and freeway,
Drive alone in the foreign country,
Travel, travel, the fun of driving
I only want to have fun, not to fall in love.

Just a little bit...
Just a little bitch!

You've got a pussy,
I have a dick,
So what's the problem?
Let's do it quick.
So take me now before it's too late
Life's too short, so I can't wait.
Take me now, oh don't you see,
I can't get laid in Germany.

Too short, too tall,
Doesn't matter, one size fits all.
Too big, too small
The tollgate should've been overhead.

Beautiful young lady, lusts after me?
Blitzkrieg with the meat pistol!
Liquor in head, you graceful bride,
Stick bratwurst in your sauerkraut!

Just a little bit...
Be my little bitch!

You've got a pussy,
I have a dick,

I think you guys are waaaaaaaay overthinking Rammstein. Yes they're a serious band, but they don't take themselves too seriously. They love pushing the envelope and doing shocking things, and they have fun with it. If they're not taking this song very seriously, you probably shouldn't either.

Well, I don't have an opinion on Rammestein, I barely know them. But I do have an opinion on the video. Pornography is the cheapest thing you can do to call attention. The video makes them look desperate for attention. I see no value here. :\

( I did see it twice now. That guy with the glasses in a woman's body + dick is kinda creeping me out. :/ )

This music video isn't very different. Here I thought it was actually going to say something and actually be "interesting". You guys made it sound like it was going to be pretty innovative and creative. What band hasn't used these kinds of sexual images before?

The song is cool though, which I expect from Rammestein since they have always been this way. But other than that, Placebo, Benny Benassi, Marilyn Manson, Julien-K, etc. have pretty much all done something similar.

Sweet video. Liked the standard late 60's mid 70's german b-movie style (think Elsa Fräulein SS or Messalina, Messalina!), I was wondering if they'd go all the way at the end. Quite a surprise that they actually did. Only seems like vag penetration though, anal would be nice to add to the stereotype ; ). Anyway this definitely beats the last first single video, cause the one for benzin was quite crap. I was wondering what they would do after the Mann gegen Mann video and they did live up to my expectations with this one.

Can't wait how the new tour show will be like, since it's hard to beat the last ones.

Schönes Fräulein, Lust auf mehr? Blitzkrieg mit dem Fleischgewehr!

Bump.

Apparently it really were them and not just "stunt-dicks" in the video. I read it in some magazine. They recorded it in a brothel, hired the porn actresses and everything, They didn't watch eachother when recording sex scenes, the only exception was when the singer was in action - they went to the room and laugh their arses off. They sure had fun :D

They didn't tell their wives until after it was already done. They didn't want to comment on the situation...

I'm not sure, it could still be a well planned hoax, but if you think it this way, it was probably cheaper to actually record everything live than it would be if they had to hire stunt actors and edit the video with some clever CGI

They are all around 40.

About the video? Uhmmm, its porn. I'm not saying its good video. I like their surreal and weird videos more (Like Mein Teil or Seemann). Song is rather ok, tho not the best as its always with singles/hits.

If Im not mistakes then in the "action" they used real male pornstars too.
