Rammstein: "We Are Not Nazis"

Cult German rockers Rammstein have vowed never to let their home country's fascist past affect their music - insisting they can't be held responsible for the actions of previous generations.

The "Ich Will" hitmakers are frequently misunderstood by fellow Germans and insist fear of being associated with infamous dictator Adolf Hitler is to blame.

Guitarist Oliver Riedel says, "I would have to say Germany is the country that most often misunderstands us.

"Germans are repressed in a lot of ways. They feel a sense of shame about what happened in the war.

"This means a lot of bands and a lot of people are quite cowardly in what they do and what they say. So they'll pick up on the fact that our singer rolls his R's and say that he's imitating Hitler and that we're Nazis.

"This is nonsense but it is the way a lot of people in our country think. We are not responsible for what our fathers and grandfathers did. It was not our fault. We have no blood on our hands."

Rammstein Frontman Talks About Gays

Rammstein discuss the controversial single "Mann Gegen Mann" ("Man Against Man") from their new album "Rosenrot" in the latest issue of the Swedish magazine Close-Up. In the chorus, the word "schwule" (German for "faggot") is uttered repeatedly.

In the article, Rammstein vocalist Till Lindemann asks the reporter: "Do you think it's homophobic?" When the reporter tells him that it easy to make that assumption, Lindemann responds: "It's natural [to perceive it that way], but it's just a song. It’s about gay men and the fact that they're lucky in a way. They never had to strut in front of girls and bring them ridiculous gifts or make dinner invitations. They just look at each other and decide to go home together. They're in a strange situation, but it's very easy for them to get laid. I write about this in a more poetic fashion. If you just hear the word [schwule] taken out of context it's provocative, but if you really listen to the lyrics you realize that it's not at all meant to be derogatory.

"I'm not going to give out any name, but an English band that we [Rammstein] are friends with has two gay members. We made a bet about something and if I were to lose I had to take the two of them out in Berlin one night and visit all the gay clubs in my neighborhood. Of course, I lost the bet, just like I always do. When we went out, I just thought: 'Wow! This is happening fast!' One glance and then both of them knew exactly what to do. I was jealous. I would love to walk up to a strange woman and go: 'Hi, you're hot. Wanna come back to my place?"

"Rosenrot" also marks Rammstein's first attempt at doing a song entirely in Spanish, "Te Quiero Puta" ("I Want You Whore"). Lindemann explains the lyrical theme: "Some guys, maybe us in the band, ride on to a whorehouse. Some 'puta' opens the door and says, 'Hey, gringos!' These ladies don't do any poetic stuff. It's all about men, women, sex and partying. The story is about this guy who falls in love with one of the women. She tells him: 'I like you, but don't come here with that emotional stuff. I only like your 'fruita,' so let me taste it."
