Rammstein are a German industrial/metal band that plays a brutal fascistic form of metallic industrial opera. The band is best known in the United States for their radio hit “Du Hast” (You Hate) on the Sehnsucht album. They combined European techno and dance beats with crunchy guitar and brutal lyrics in German that reflected themes of alienation, disgust, and anger.
The band was also noted for amazing stage shows with bondage gear, elaborate head gear, and band members being set on fire.
