Rammstein Album Banned In Germany For Being ‘Harmful To Children’!
The German authorities come crashing down on Rammstein over their sadomasochistic new album! Get this banned in Germany artwork on the limited-edition Cross Pack copy of the latest issue of Metal Hammer!
As if the hardcore porn video for their track ‘Pussy’ hadn’t got people in a tizzy enough, now the German authorities have taken the album off of the shelves because of ‘Liebe Ist Fur Alle Da’s depictions of sadism/masochism, which have been deemed to be harmful to children and young people.
Petra Meier, the deputy president of the Federal Office for the Examination of Media Harmful to Young People, has acted against the artwork and the track ‘Ich tue Dir Weh’ (which translates as ‘I Want to Hurt You’). The album is rumoured to be being repressed in Germany with new artowrk and minus that track. In true Rammstein style, we’ve also heard that the track will now be issued as a single outside of Germany.
You can, of course, get a huge copy of the artwork that is now banned in Germany by ordering a limited-edition Cross Pack copy of the latest issue of Metal Hammer. Sorry Germany! See the full banned artwork on our Cross pack below!
