** Rammstein are huge in Russia, to the point where many of their interviews are conducted there and many bootlegs originate out of Russia. Due to the band members originating from the former Soviet state of EastGermany, they are at ease with EasternEuropean culture. "Moskau", featuring then popular Russian girl group TATU, was written for their Russian fanbase. On a darker note, pirating of their music (mostly originating out of Russia), has made it unusually difficult to find their CDs second hand in any Western country because so many have downloaded their music illegally.

** On the packaging of 'Liebe Ist Fur Alle Da', the band censored 'Buckstabu' as 'B***' to make fun of the German government's tendency for censorship (even though it was a made up word). It became this trope when the German government forced the band to remove 'Ich Tu Dir Weh' from the same album shortly after release, due to its lyrics, and refused to let the band promote the album. The band was not happy about this, and simply crossed out the title, replaced the track with four seconds silence, wrote on the packaging [in German] "Removed by order of the German government", and encouraged fans to not buy this version and instead buy the uncensored version from their website. The ban was eventually lifted due to the controversy, though Rammstein later sued the government for the losses they made on recalling many copies of the album and being unable to promote it.

* HilariousInHindsight: "Stein um Stein" becomes pretty funny if you have seen {{Webcomic/Nichtlustig}} cartoons about [[http://static.notfunny.com/toondb/130502.html Mr. Riebmann]].

** The video for "Mein Land" gets even funnier after people discovered that metal and surf music [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVqqWUyDPzA are the same thing]].

** The less said about the opening line of "Seemann", the better. Before they were disabled, the YouTube comments on the video were full of people essentially going HehHehYouSaidX.

* MexicansLoveSpeedyGonzales: Both "Moskau" (Moscow, Russia) and "Amerika" (USA) deal with negative aspects of the places they are about, but fans from those places tend to love them anyway.

** This even applies to their official merchandise, such as their "Bück Dich" soap and "Mein Teil" place mats.
