The hard rockers of Rammstein shocked the classic German press yesterday by releasing a 9-minute video of their upcoming album. The new song entitled ‘Deutschland’ features a overview of German history from Roman over Nazi times and even includes references to the Communist DDR.

It features the lyric ‘Deutschland uber allen,’ a play on words to the forbidden ‘Deutschland uber alles,’ the opening of the Nazi era anthem which is now a criminal offense in Germany.

The long video gained 8.5 million views in only 1 day (a record for a German song) and Youtube slapped a sign-in on it already.

The imagery of the Nazi era features hangings of holocaust prisoners whilst military look on approvingly.
