* EstablishingSeriesMoment: The band wanted a video to promote their first song "Rammstein", and out of sheer tenacity, decided to ask DavidLynch to produce the video. They sent him a cassette of the Herzeleid album along with some promo material, not expecting him to reply. To their surprise, he not only loved the album, but asked them to some of the songs in his movie "Lost Highway" (which they agreed to). The resultant attention from this led to the band doing the unthinkable of being a German language band with a US following. Numerous musicians raved about the band, including {{Korn}}, who invited Rammstein to appear on their Family Values tour in 1998. During this time period, Rammstein even recorded some material in English for the US market, these being their cover of Depeche Mode's "Stripped" and English versions of "Engel" (Angel) and "Du Hast" (You Hate). Rammstein's popularity grew with the NuMetal movement, with their famously theatrical live shows attracting attention, until reaching huge proportions with the Mutter album in 2001. The appearance of the band and use of "Feuer Frei" in the well-known VinDiesel movie "XXX" sealed the deal. Thanks to these business decisions they are one of the most successful metal bands on the planet despite many of their fans not speaking German.

[[caption-width-right:345: From left to right: Paul, Doom, Till, Ollie, Flake, Richard]]
->''Du, du hast, du hast mich.''[[note]]"You, you have, you have me", however the line is also a homophone for "You, you hate, you hate me" in German. This has been one of the biggest sources for confusion and arguments in the Rammstein fanbase. Note that "have" can be used both as a verb meaning possession and as an auxiliary for the perfect tense, just like in English. In this case the latter is the case and the whole sentence (Du hast mich gefragt) would translate as "you have asked me"[[/note]]
