RE: The "anti-American" comment, stop being a drop-kick and read the lyrics, rather than jumping to conclusions. The song actually isn't about America at all, but the spread of "American culture" globally. It does not comment on whether this is a good or a bad thing.

I find this knock on American culture a bit amusing. This in no way is meant to put the song nor Rammstein down. It's probably correct to infer that they dislike how American culture is infiltrating everything. Our hamburgers. Our obesity. Our obsession with little conveniencies. I'd like to address el comment de "Fred." They're named not completely after Ramstein AF in Deutschland, but partially, as their name was inspired by a famous jet incident there, not by the base itself. They're under no obligation to say things that right-wing Americans want to hear. They're more obligated to say things that Deutschland wants to hear, yes, although I'd be a bit surprised to find that their statements warp to the latest hates of America, the latest local news, et cetera. People like you who tell others what to do don't deserve their respect nor get it. So your little flame was amusing to me. And while I'll stop short of calling myself anti-American, for I don't hate my country, but merely what it has done/is doing, I will agree that our globalisation sucks. And as for you, USA Hater, I'd rather you die than all of my fellow Americans. You're an ignorant fool who should get a better education on foreign countries and their people's opinions rather than just blather with your hateful junk-words.

But getting back on topic, Amerika, when I first was listening to it, sounded rather cruddy. However, as I listened to it more, it was quite catchy, and upon finding a translation for the German section of the lyrics, I couldn't help but chuckle. It's a very good song, although not Rammstein's best, though I think of it equally to Mein Teil... which, was another good song, in my opinion. And Rammstein does not suck, and we most CERTAINLY do NOT have the Germans beaten with music taste. Quite frankly, our mainstream sucks, and even going into obscurer, foreign materials beat us, in quite a few cases. Still... Megaherz >; Rammstein. :P

@Fred Fury:
How about thinking before writing crazy & imperialistic comments ?
a) The name of the airbase is the german name of a nearby village, which might have been there longer then your country exists
b) About 80 People already have been killed at Ramstein when 2 Airplanes collided at a flight show - who ever needs shows like that - this accident is what most germans think of when hearing the name - besides the genuine band ...
c) If you read Carries post you will see why some people here complain about American ignorance - even with the song-part "this is not a love song" the irony in this song will not be seen ....

Just like to drop in and say that Ramstein Air Base is indeed named for the village next to it. Much like ALL military posts in Germany and for that matter Europe. Ramstein AB and it's miltary personnel drop a huge amount of money on the local economy and if we leave it will impact the locals to a great extent. Second, Rammstein took the air show disaster as inspiration for their band name, and here's the kicker. While it was an air show at an American military base it was an ITALIAN flight demonstration team that collided in mid air and killed 70 people on the ground. I was there as an Air Force cop and know what happened. Now then, the song Amerika is catchy and is not when reading the translated lyrics negative toward America in general but more on our lifestyles spreading world wide. I enjoy the single but the album as a whole is my least favorite of Rammstein's library. And even though I'm an American, Rammstein is my favorite metal band rivaled only by Judas Priest...

Hate to break it to you anarchevan but it's pronounced Ram Stine not steen. I lived there for 2 years and even here in the US I work with native Germans. When it's "ie" it's a long sounding E and when it's "ei" it's a long sounding I. Two: if you live in the US then I think you should leave, and to adjust the quote you had, "and I don't have to explain my self because if you do not know what makes this country GREAT .. then you have no business replying". I of course modified it but kept your same sorry sentence structure...

Alot of you people need to get a grip.......if you don't enjoy Rammstein, don't listen to them. This song is about a very basic simple fact, Americanization is spreading around the world....is it a good thing? some, but I for 1 do not appreciate it, when I visit other countries, I want to experiance their culture, I do not want it to be just like home. For all you american haters.......lucky you that you got to choose what country you were born in, wow!!!! I love my home, which is America, I do not like our political bullsh!t , most americans are powerless to change anything, you live, you try to make things good, so many things are horrible in the world, but I find some enjoyment when listening to Rammstein........love them!!!!!!!!
and Bush is just a money hungry bully......still it is not all his fault, he is just a very common politician, commercialism and americanization has been spreading around the world long before Bush, he is just a bullying big promoter right now.....in the discuise of help, god forbid if he is elected again, but on the other hand.......who knows if Kerry will do any better? they are all liars regardless. Brainwashed???? no! actually it's the oposite . brainwashed people do not lose faith in their 'leader' or complain about the government, or feel they have no power to do anything. Brainwashed people follow along blindly with their faith in tact. I'd just as soon be born Canadian, Austrailian, European, just because you love your home, want it to be protected does not mean you are against others nor agree with the government.

Ich hoffe mein Englisch ist verständlich.( i hope my enlish is understandable).
I found this site because i wanted to know what the americans thinks about the german (not a love-)song "Amerika".
My personel opinion is that i like the way the US tries to protect themselfs agains the terror of some stupid and in the past living muslims like taking pictures and fingerprints of everybody who comes to the US. (i would favor the german government would do more like that, too. But we german have to pay attention what we do, because we are in everybodys eyes still nazis.)

But some doings of Mr Bush etc. are arrogant and hard-nosed. He dont cares about meaning of the UN or other countries. So you all dont have to wonder about such lyrics, music and meanings of (not only german) people.
I mostly like the USA as the most other german do. The american soldiers who live in germany (like those who live near the town "Ramstein") are friends to the german and vice versa.

As previously said, america dont keeps his friends with doing things of its own, doing things only because of economic causes or to force something to someone.

I think the single "amerika" only wants to let you americans think about what you do.
Rammstein is great !

Corporate America and America are different, if other nations around the globe don't want American corporations and American products in thier country, why are they purchasing them? If you wouldn't purchase American products it would be uneconomical for the corportaions and they would leave. I know in the United States we have Volkswagons and Adidas. We live in a global economy. Our president did make a mistake in Iraq, but cursing at each other isn't going to solve anything. We do have a high standard of living in the United States, I am not sure where in the US teutonic knight is talking about, we do have problems in innercities, but alot of people in the United States own nice cars and nice houses. We have rich people in the US and poor people, but most Americans are middle class. I find Rammstein amusing, they are talented. But anybody who hates Americans and America should just realize that politicans and corporations are what you are viewing America by, not the Americans themselves.

I think Rammstein is justly taking a jab at American commercialism here but they should have gone a step further.

In my opinion the biggest problem with America is that we have such an ethnocentric point of view that they feel the need to "fix" countries or immigrants because their culture's are different and possibly unacceptable to us. No one ever stops to think that perhaps the way other's live works for them and we should leave them the hell alone. Some people like to say that the rest of the world is just "ungrateful" for all the support we give them. Well, we never stop to think perhaps all the foreign "aid" we give other countries is not wanted by the people themselves. Every year the US flings money, supplies and commercial crap like McDonald's to the far corners of the world. When a culture disagrees with this or dislikes it and puts up the slightest protest to the effect, they're branded and enemy by our government. Now it would be foolish of me, not to draw attention to the fact that there are many countries out there as bad as we are with respect to ethnocentrism, but the US has the military arm to turn ethnocentrism into a threat. We would love to chang ethe way other nation view us but the way to do that is not through violent force. As Ghandi said "In order to change the world you must first change yourself." But this isn't likely to happen anytime soon since America is the obnoxious kid in the world who can't mind his own business. We have no need to be in Iraq, or many of the other places that we occupy in the world. By the logic that the president gives that we needed to get rid of Saddam because "he's a butcher of his own people" and "support terrorists" we should be bombing Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Israel, and Indonesia all of which have nightmarish human rights records and questionable dealings with terrorists. All we're doing by running around the world, flexing our military muscle is validating the cause of extremists. The US had better wake up and realize that Terrorists have a reason for acting violently, or we'll die the death of a thousand cuts. I think, as johnt apparently does, that many Americans themselves realize that the government and corporate concerns are ruining our reputation in the world. Let's change US foreign policy so we use our brains rather than our brawn.

Sorry it looks like I wrote book here : )

Rammstein condemns the whole US and you condemn whole germany.
Not every american votes for Mr.Bush, nor every german says America is bad.
And not every German killed a Jew. So dont remember us everytime at the WWII. Or is that the only thing you can argue with ?
Germany has a democracy too, so the german who are against the US have the right to say it.

i recently heared this song "Amerika", i like it very much. i used to think german songs sounds not good. but this song changed my mind! german is really a perfect language for heavy metal: ). i found this site and wanna learn about how other people think about this song. but i was so dissapointed to see how big comflict the song has brought up and how peole from one country hate people from another country. i was astonished to see how frequently you guys use the F word in your language. and to uncle sam(the propaganda man), you really should be elected for american president! you have the quality

Wow, this topic really hit a nerve! Some ill-informed people would like to think that America is the great defender of all that is good and just when in fact the political leadership is simply power and money hungry. "W" has been a miserable President and needs to be replaced. I find it humbling that it is entirely possible for the world's most populous nation to wipe us off the map should they so choose. I hope that people realize that America isn't "The greatest nation in the world" nor are we some "great satan" we're simply one of many countries in the world and if we want to beat terrorism we have to stop it's creation. We can only do that by respecting other nations' sovereignty. When I say terrorist act the way they do for a reason, I mean they don't wake up one morning and say "I think I'll kill women and children." They do however, wake up in the morning and find bombs falling on their city and realize that their friends, children, and way of life have been destroyed. Dortmund you make the point that terrorists kill "people who have never done anything but try their best to feed their family." What do yo consider the current war in Iraq? A freedom fight? Hardly, how many innocents have we killed, maimed or emotionally destryed as a result of our wrong-headed war? We've done nothing in Iraq but give terrorists one more reason to hate us. If you ask me I don't hink the world is better off with Saddam out of power. He was far better than Zarqawi, Sadr, and all the rest of the theologially motivated ass-hole who will replace him.

Not all germans killed Jews, but most of them ignored it because of the benefits it gave them. I don't know why most of America let Bush control one of the most powerful countries in the world.

In the 2000 election more Americans voted for Gore than Bush to become president, but the way we have our electoral votes for each state, Bush won Flordia by a few hundred votes. That is how he got to be president. But why did the Germans back in the 30's allow Hitler to take power, George W. Bush might not be one of our best presidents but at least he is very far away from being Hitler. Hitler tried to take over the world, we only invaded Iraq, which is a lot worse?

This song is a observation of us domination in the world. Germans killed jews, but it doesn't matter how many people are killed. All goverments that wants to survive have to kill. Bush is the same as other leaders before him like clinton. Only he does everything to destroy the UN and that is bad lying. Clinton did this better. The only thing wrong that nazi germany did was losing the war. Because now they are the bad side in the 2 world war. Forget all the merchendise about them in books, films and other art ways. Wouldn't the nazi's made movies like schindlers list with bad other nations like US , jews etc. History is always written by winners and they are never good sides in a war. They were all bad. War is just busines and nothing more. I personally loved the mutter album. Songs like ich will, links and sonne are greath songs. On the reise reise album they have no greath songs like that. Only mein teill was nice and the others just sound like the pre mutter albums. They sucked. If you listen the intro of rr you can hear some other song. See the forum at herzeleid.com. site.

Have a nice day

Amerika doesn't even exist as a country, it's a part of the world. What you all are talking about might have more to do with US culture, not with Colombia, Mexico, Argentina... cause these count also as "amerika".

And Rammstein with their name hit it spot-on because older people here are disgusted by the reference to the nasty accident at the US base in combination with the nazi-inspired way of pronounciation of german. I'm dutch while part of my family is from germany, so I know what I'm talking about.

"Germans killed Jews." "Germans are Nazis." I'm sick of this ignorant hick bullsh**. First off, as was stated before, NOT EVERY GERMAN KILLED A JEW. Second, ALL THIS HAPPENED OVER 60 YEARS AGO. Every SS a$$hole that presided over the concentration camps is either long dead or so old they can't even remember what they did back then. Yes, NAZIS killed millions of Jews 60 years ago, but America's dumb-f*** President invaded Iraq last year and in the process killed how many thousands of innocent Iraqis? All this so Iraq could endure some f***ed-up version of "freedom" for the foreseeable future where no one has running water, enough food or medical supplies, and is in constant fear for there lives. Sounds like you're doing a better job than Saddam at tormenting Iraq, Mr. Bush. Oh yeah, and when an improvised bomb blows up and kills United States soldiers (who have no blame in starting this mess) that means "get the f*** out of my country and mind your own business." I feel sorry for the US, you guys ended up with a moron for President because about half of you had your heads up you asses or were too lazy to vote. Worst of all, this is all happening today, Mr johnt.

Wow, you're Dutch,huh? Well I guess that means you to know exactly what's going on! Get real buddy! Do you think a Nazi band would sing about eating unmentionable body parts? And besides, what in the HELL does the way they pronounce German have to do with their politics? If you had any idea what Rammstein's lyrics are about you'd realize what an a$$ you just made of yourself.

Rammstein chose their name to promote awareness of the airshow diaster. If you're offended by that, you must be painfully sensitive.

hey americans, don't wonder why the rest of the world can't stand you-including what's left of your allies-when you allow your government and media to spout propaganda that justifies their greed then sit on your asses and say there's nothing you can do about it!! three quarters of the american population couldn't be f***ed voting at your last presidential election, so you're apathetic at best. and notice how eveyone's forgotten about afghanistan since you bombed the crap out of it? i've got a theory about the war on iraq- it was all a diversion to keep everyone from noticing you didn't fulfill your objective in afghanistan. Oops, we bombed the sh** out of an entire country and osama bin laden wasn't even f***ing there-what to do? i know- bomb the sh** out of someone else! yeehaa!

I hope that one day America will resolve to utterly destroy all of Europe. We should have conqured you people after WWII. You think you are so smart. Do you realize that 99% of the problems in the world today were caused by your imperialist doctrine in the 17th 18th and 19th centuries? The blood of all wars today is a direct result of your history. We, Americans, are the cure for the plague of Europe. Our citizens fled your pathetic sub-continent to start a better world here. We are the future. Get used to it.

Did you guys bought the amerika single, because this single version is 36 minutes long and the album is only 50 minutes. Why would they do this! One version has a sample from the clinton speech were he talks about monica lewinsky. Rammstein rocks the western world like the germans 60 years ago did.
