All that mattered was the music and their feelings

and their instruments.

What do I need to see a bunch of naked guys playing guitars for?

That's a crowd pleaser.

♪ (insane instrumental) ♪

♪ (stops abruptly) ♪

- Oh, dear me. Dear me, dear me.

- ♪ Germany! ♪

- Whoo!

Good clean fun.

- Little pornographic, but I'm not complaining.

I'm not that square yet. I'm...

I can enjoy that.

- I don't know how much over-the-top you can get with that.

That's pretty much max.

- Trash. Garbage. Junk. Stupid.

- The generation now would appreciate it.

But not for me.

- It's not one of my favorite forms of music.

It's way out there.

- Raising my sons Benny and Rafi,

I got to listen to a lot of heavy metal,

because they loved it.

And the truth is, I really didn't.

When you're raising kids, you sit and you listen.

And you try to understand it.

And actually, I got into it with them.

- (FBE) So what did you think of what you just saw?

- I actually really enjoyed it. I mean, I loved the music.

And I loved most of the imagery.

- I've never seen anything like this before.

And I was quite interested in it, and it's an education.

- I enjoy their beat, and I didn't--

I don't know enough German to get all the words,

but I kinda liked the Bratwurst and the Sauerkraut.

That kinda made sense. (chuckles)

- It is definitely a very classic metal kind of sound.

It's-- it's-- it fits right in there.

The German language VERY much lends itself to the heavy metal.

It has-- it has a gritty sound to it.

- I saw some nudity.

I saw some pornography.

Um, maybe they are saying...

"We should have more freedom in this area or something."


- I don't know why they show things like that.

I won't even let my kids watch it if I had younger kids.

- (speaking German)

- (FBE) What does that mean?

- I think it's very lousy.

- (FBE) So this was Rammstein, a German band

originally formed in 1994.

- Oh, I-- oh! Okay. 'Cause I know you--

You all have been asking for that. I like 'em. Thank you.

- (FBE) Rammstein is known for having some of the most

extreme music videos like we showed you here.

And that obviously leads to controversy.

- Oh yeah, I can imagine.

- (FBE) So finally, do you think their videos

fit their type of music? Or is it all just too much for you?

- Well, it certainly apparently fit their kind of music

and obviously has some appeal to somebody, but not to me.

It's too much for me.

- Oh, it definitely fits. It fits. It makes it fun.

- It fits with their music, because

their music is weird, and so are they.

- Yes, I think their videos track perfectly

with the type of music that they play.

It's just back to "Let's eat a bat onstage" Ozzy Osbourne land.

- It really...

doesn't take a lot of talent to do what they're doing.

It's about sex. It's about the provocation.

- That's some of the best of that genre that I've seen.

That was like theatrical quality in a way.

- They're right on the edge, which makes it perfect for me.

You know, when you run stuff on the edge,

you're gonna have some people fall away from you.

But you're gonna have a gathering of people

that really enjoy that edgy part of life.
