Listen To This Cover of RAMMSTEIN's "Amerika" Done In A True Americana Style

This is simply fantastic!

In most instances, Rammstein leaves very little open to interpretation. Let's just say the German industrial titans are pretty straightforward with their feelings. But that's what is so wonderful about music: change the sound a little here, mash a few bits of some other songs over there, plus co-opt an entirely different cultural aesthetic, and—voila!—what you got is one hilarious cover song!

Enter the Italian group Melodicka Bros. There take on Rammstein's classic track "Amerika" features a traditional Americana arrangement driven by twangy banjos and lush mandolins—while snagging a little bit from Ennio Morricone's "The Ecstasy of Gold."

The video does come with an hysterical disclaimer at the beginning, stating: "We sincerely apologize for killing the German language, American culture and Italy’s reputation all in a single video."

I dunno… if you ask me, I think the lads have done us all quite proud! Rammstein, in the meantime, will be doing a staggering amount of touring in 2022 and 2023 in both North America, the UK, and Europe. You can find all dates below:
