* Rammstein generally have either lyrics about sex or murder or both. There are two songs about plane crashes, one about an insane man shagging his decaying dead wife, "Wo Bist du?" (Where are you?) about a man searching for someone [[spoiler: in order to knife them.]] Then there's "Ich Tu Dir Weh", an ObligatoryBondageSong so twisted and horrific that the German government has put it and the album on which it appears, ''Liebe ist für alle da'', on the Index. This means it cannot be sold to minors. (to be fair, the artwork shows them killing and eating women.) And "Haifisch" (Shark) is based on the chorus of "Die Moritat von Mackier Messer" (The Ballad of Mack the Knife).

Finally, there's "Wiener Blut" (Viennese Blood), which talks about [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fritzl_case the Elizabeth Fritzl case]].

* "Du Riechst So Gut" is by itself a horrifying song, being sung from the POV of a StalkerWithACrush who ends up raping his prey, but [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rrmsJhf89MY the '98 music video]] makes it even more unsettling, with Till playing the part of a vampire hunting down a high-life woman all the way to a castle. He manages to seduce the woman, but then kills her and takes her clothes, before transforming into a pack of wolves wreaking havoc in the ballroom. Upon escaping from the castle, the wolves are revealed to be the entire band, as the other people check out the woman's corpse. [[spoiler:Except the woman herself has been transformed into a vampire, as the surprise ending shows.]]

*** Add to that by reading up on the disaster- some call it the largest natural disaster since Chernobyl. By the time it got to the Danube (which features in the song title), the cyanide already went through at least 3 rivers big and small, and was highly diluted. The effects were felt not only in Romania, where the spill happened, but Hungary (thanks to the spill almost directly getting into 2 of Hungary's major rivers, first the Szamos then the Tisza), Serbia (via the Tisza and Danube as far as Belgrad), and even as far as Bulgaria. Parents from all these places asked that question when seeing fish and other animals die and smelling their rivers stink- and just as the song states, the Romanian government and the mine itself denied everything and claimed ignorance for a good while. "Nobody saw what happened" indeed.

Parents As for the question, the accident happened in January so no children were actually ''swimming'' in the rivers, per se, bu they could have been ''walking along them'', and parents from all these places asked that question when seeing fish and other animals die and smelling their rivers stink- and just as the song states, the Romanian government and the mine itself denied everything and claimed ignorance for a good while.

* The music video for "Ich Will", disturbing not because of gore and violence or nightmarish lyrics of the song, but because its depiction of journalists [[IfItBleedsItLeads treating bank robbers as if they were celebrities]] is uncomfortably close to how news media sometimes operate in RealLife.

* ''Weisses Fleisch'' definitely deserves a mention here as well, the song is about rape told from the rapist's perspective in rather graphic detail.

* The piano version of "Mein Herz Brennt". The song is creepy enough as it is, but among a lone piano is just disturbing. Till's appearance in the video doesn't help matters either.

* "Mein Teil" also deserves a mention. Partly because it's about the [[http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/3230774.stm real-life case of Armin Meiwes]] -- indeed, the lyrics are preceded by Meiwes' ad for a young man to be "slaughtered and then consumed" -- and partly because in the middle eight, there's a noise in the background that sounds like dying screams. As if the fact it's an eerie metal song about cannibalism ''sung in a foreign language creepily'' weren't enough, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armin_Meiwes#Killing_and_cannibalism read the story behind the song in excruciating detail.]] Yes, he really did that to his you-know-what (hence the title, 'Mein Teil', which means 'my part' in German). And if you're still not convinced as to how frightening the song is, [[https://youtu.be/PBvwcH4XX6U watch the music video.]] [[SarcasmMode Sweet dreams...]]
