Great Videos: Rammstein – Sonne

Him Indoors reckons Rammstein are the new AC/DC: deliciously moreish riffs in utterly disposable pop-metal songs. I’d have more likened them to Disturbed, about whom you could say the same thing.

Sonne, as well as a suitably memorable chorus, has a totally unforgettable video. Be warned: it’s not safe for work.

Till Lindemann says the song was originally written as an entrance song for the boxer Vitali Klitschko, though the finished song and treatment is apparently very different to how it was first envisaged. The Burtonesque direction is haunting, but the subject matter is more than a little kinky. You’ll never see Snow White the same way again.
