Germany Spawned Hitler and Internet Torture Porn but Rammstein’s New CD Offends the Government? – BERLIN – Geezus. Looks like the conservatively sensitive uber dicks are running the show in Germany once again.  Sure, things were all chipper a few days ago for the 3oth anniversary of the famed “Wall” fall, but today it’s back to Bush-like business, unlike the past when they were a feared world power with a big set of balls.  First it was that little musically inclined maniac Hitler who bombed the hell out of most of Europe and with the help of his devilish Youth tried to wipe out the Jews.  There’s always that first moment when German Torture porn appeared on the internet in mpegs with chicks and dudes dressed head to toe in what we Americans would call rubber snowmobile suits. Well, those days are far gone.  Now the German feds are offended by a heavy metal scream band with songs that  talk about nipple clippers and a  woman’s what nots.

The German government has banned scream metal band Rammstein’s latest hit album from public display in stores because of its sadomasochism imagery.  The album, “Liebe ist Fuer Alle Da” (“Love is For All”) has been a mega seller across the globe since its debut last month. It was No. 1 in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Denmark, the Czech Republic, Finland and the Netherlands. It made No. 2 in France, and No. 3 in Sweden and Belgium. In the United States, it ended up at No. 13, a record for the band that nobody’s ever really heard about, other than that head banging tune where they scream Rammstein to hypnotic background noise that makes you puke.

Apparently officials were offended by the track “Ich tue Dir Weh” (“I Want to Hurt Your Balls”), which includes such lines as “Bites marks, ball bags,heavy blows to the nuts, scrotum nailing, ball kicks wearing soccer shoes, ball gags and rusty nipple clippers.”  The album artwork shows a masked, naked woman wearing a black torture suit going down on a guitar player like there’s no tomorrow.  The German Federal Office for the Examination of Media Harmful to Young People in Bonn also criticized the single “Pussy,” believing it encourages unprotected sexual intercourse with hookers in rubber suits, despite the risk of getting the clap or AIDS.  The video for “Pussy” has also pissed some people off as it shows members of the band gang-banging an old lady in the back of a VW van, though the band says it wasn’t them.

Since launching in Berlin in 1995, Rammstein have always pissed people off  with all of their eight albums.  All touched on such subjects as sadomasochism, homosexuality, incest, animal abuse, necrophilia, pyromania, cannibalism and sexual violence towards women; all coveted by Germany’s underground counterculture.  Coincidentally, German officials fail to forget that they are the very people who invented sadomasochism, homosexuality, incest, animal abuse, necrophilia, pyromania so what are they bitching about?  Rammstein and torture porn is better than Adolf Hitler on acid any day.
