RAMMSTEIN Unveil Controversial "Deutschland" Video Amid Criticism

Before Rammstein was even able to release the full music video for their new single, "Deutschland," they were already facing some serious critiques. Reuters reports some Jewish leaders in Germany have blasting the preview teaser for making light of the Holocaust.

Charlotte Knobloch, former president of the Central Council of Jews in Germany and Holocaust survivor, said “With this video, the band has crossed a line. The instrumentalisation and trivialisation of the Holocaust, as shown in the images, is irresponsible.”

The German government's commissioner for anti-semitism, Felix Klein, said the band "crossed a line" with the imagery in this teaser. I consider this a tasteless exploitation of artistic freedom,” he added.

Well, they're probably not going to like the full video for the song that just premiered, which goes even further with the Holocaust imagery and features band members being hung. Overall, it's exactly what you expect out of a Rammstein video. The video was directed by Specter Berlin.

The band confirmed today that their new album will be released on May 17th.

Here are the lyrics to the song:

[Stanza 1]
You (you have, you have, you have, you have) You have
cried a lot (weeping, crying, crying, crying)
Separated in the mind (separated, separated, separated, separated)
Im Heart united (united, united, united, united)
We (we are, we are, we are, we are)
Are already very long together (you are, you are, you are, you are)
Your breath cold (so cold, so cold, so cold, so cold)
The heart in flames (so hot, so hot, so hot, so hot)
You (you can, you can, you can, you can)
Me (I know, I know, I know , I know)
We (we are, we are, we are, we are)
you (you stay, you stay, you stay, you stay)

[refrain]
Germany – my heart in flames
Wants to love you and damn
Germany – your breath cold
So young, and yet so old
Germany!

[Stanza 2]
I (you have, you have, you have, you have)
I never want to leave you (you cry, you cry, you cry, you cry)
You can love you (you love, you love, you love, you love)
and wants to hate you (you hate, you hate, you hate, you hate)
arrogant, superior
takeover, surrender
surprise,
Germany, Germany invades all
