* InterplayOfSexAndViolence: Fairly common, usually wound up in IntercourseWithYou. "Wollt ihr das Bett in Flammen sehen?" has a bridge chant of "Sex ist eine Schlacht! / Liebe ist Krieg!" ([[SexIsViolence "Sex is a battle! / Love is war!"]]). Complete with a sound of a reloading shotgun. And in some versions, a shot right after that.

* IntercourseWithYou: Pretty much half of their songs. Special mention for including "Blitzkrieg mit dem Fleischgewehr"[[note]]blitzkrieg with your gun of flesh. [[SarcasmMode VERY subtle, I know.]][[/note]] and references to putting bratwurst in someone else's sauerkraut in "Pussy". "Rein Raus" [[note]]In out[[/note]] also deserves a mention. Some of the {{Double Entendre}}s Till comes up with are impressively creative.

* DontExplainTheJoke: Setting the "Mein Land" video as a [[Creator/DavidHasselhoff David Hasselhoff]]-style beach party diverts attention from the song's lyrics, a critical commentary on anti-immigrant xenophobia. In the video's making-of documentary, the original concept appeared to involve the beach party being disturbed by [[CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon a campy costumed sea monster]].

** MarilynManson, a long time friend of the band and especially Richard, has a cameo role at Till's funeral in "Haifisch", the only celebrity at the funeral who is not a part of the band.

Added DiffLines:

** This portion was likely Rammstein's attempt to avoid [[InsultBackfire a similar fate]] to that of [[BruceSpringsteen Bruce Springsteen]]'s antiwar song "Born in the USA". In a way it's a veiled insult to Americans' listening comprehension abilities, since the band is generally [[DontExplainTheJoke very reluctant to openly declare]] its sarcastic or satirical intentions.

** Actually, the song it's intentionally based on is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTM9J1PX4CI the quasi-official anthem of German communism]].

Rammstein is a six-man self-described "tanz-metall" (dance metal, though their actual style has them as the [[TropeCodifier codifiers]] of Neue Deutsche Härte, a form of industrial metal) band hailing from Germany. They take their name from the Ramstein airshow disaster of 1988, adding an extra 'm' to give the double meaning of "Battering Ram" (literally 'Ramming Stone'). The band consists of:

* CoverVersion: They have done covers of Depeche Mode's "Stripped", The Ramones's "Pet Semetary", Kraftwerk's "Das Model" (with the title of the cover version being spelt as "Das Modell"), and Aria's "Shtil" (with the cover titled "Schtiel"). Recently, Till worked with {{Apocalyptica}} to do a German cover of David Bowie's "Heroes".
