    The New Rammstein song and video has hit the net.

    Heres the video.

    Here's the translated lyrics (German to English)

    America
    We're all living in America
    America is wonderful
    we're all living in America
    America
    America

    We're all living in America
    America is wonderful
    we're all living in America
    America
    America

    When we dance I want to lead
    when you turn yourself around alone
    let us control you a bit
    I'll show you how to walk right

    We create a lovely round dance
    the freedom plays from all violins
    music comes from the White House
    and in front of Paris stands Mickey Mouse

    We're all living in America
    America is wonderful
    we're all living in America
    America
    America

    I know the very useful steps
    and I will protect you from missteps
    and who does not want to dance at the end
    does not know that he must dance

    We create a lovely round dance
    I will show you the direction
    to Africa comes Santa Claus
    and in front of Paris stands Mickey Mouse

    We're all living in America
    America is wonderful
    we're all living in America
    America
    America

    We're all living in America
    Coca Cola, Wonderbra
    we're all living in America
    America
    America

    This is not a love song
    this is not a love song
    I don't sing my mother tongue
    no, this is not a love song

    We're all living in America
    America is wonderful
    we're all living in America
    America
    America

    We're all living in America
    Coca Cola, sometimes war
    we're all living in America
    America
    America

    that part is wrong
    "lasst euch ein wenig kontrollieren" can't be translated right
    but "ich zeige euch wie's richtig geht" is not "I'll show you how to walk right"
    it's "I'll show you how it's done right"

    I like that song.
    Im assuming its going along with all the anti-american fealings lately...
    "This is not a love song
    this is not a love song
    I don't sing my mother tongue
    no, this is not a love song
    "

    I got kind of a chuckle during the scene when they cant put the flag together and have to look at the intructions. hehehe

    Actually, in an interview they stated that it wasn't anti-american... it was kind of just talking about how much American culture and influence has globally spread (both the good parts and the bad parts).

    In the same interview, another interesting thing was pointed out. Listen to this sound clip and I'll let you figure out what it was: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/clipserve/B00008XRY3001003/0/002-0362265-8265602

    Yeah, I know, it's just one part and they are still different, but it is just kinda humorous that they are pretty close :p

    They're German. They sing in German.

    That was a translation.

    Rammstein is not about the lyrics, it's about the pyrotechnics...

    Rammstein aren't exactly famous for their lyrics, you know. Although I do like the words to a few songs [namely 'Seemann' and 'Klavier'] quite a bit and think that they often get bashed for them because it's an established standard that they aren't all highbrow. That said, the new song is boring, uninspired. The chorus is catchy but that's about the only thing I like about it. The video is rather dull, too.

    I love Rammstein! Sehnsucht was best album. And also that song "1 2 3 4" I think the title that has ants marching to kill a beetle (and in the end, the camera shows that their last victim before that was a human)

    I saw this on tv the other day and thought it was an absolutely terrible song, and the video sucked too. I'm fond of their other stuff but if the new album's gonna be like this it'll suck.

    After hearing the two singles I don't think the next album will be as good as Mutter, but I'll still definitely get it. After all, so far none of the singles, with the possible exception of Links 2 3 4, have been the outstanding tracks on their respective albums.
