Stein Um Stein (Rammstein) Song Analysis & Rammstein ‘News’

After a hiatus due to a severe case of the 'Covid-19 Lockdown Blues', the RandomRammstein girls are back with a discussion that Angel has been wanting to do for a very long time -- STEIN UM STEIN.

This week we talk about various tidbits of Rammstein 'news', including new merchandise, the 2020 tour and possible tour DVD. Then we break back into our analytical roots and build an analysis for Stein Um Stein.

We are opening our Instagram DMs up to suggests for an Emigrate song to cover in our next episode -- if you have a favourite you'd like us to dig into, drop us a DM on Instagram:

Till the End - Till Lindemann & Porn - AGAIN….

Well, Till put it out there, so we had to discuss it...yes...this week we have a chat about Till Lindemann's porn video for - Till the End.

In discussing this video we talk about the song, the video, the purpose behind it, what it all might mean, Zoran's influence on it, the implications this might have for Lindemann and Rammstein fan culture, Lindemann and Rammstein parties, our predictions for Till's tattoo and other things...AND... we divulge way too much about our own kinks and sexual proclivities.

If Till can be unabashed in doing his thing... so can we... (until we get remorseful and edit further later). In the meantime, listen quick while the cheeky bits are still available!

Platz Eins and Porn

Part 2 of a 2 part episode on the new video 'Platz Eins' from Lindemann.

What is a discussion of a Lindemann video without dealing with SEX? The Platz Eins video doubles-down on violence and sex, by including explicit sexual imagery. In this episode we dive deep and discuss whether the 'porn' sequence is necessary to the visual narrative being told and if so, what purpose it serves. We also discuss the use of porn sequences in the new Lindemann stage show, and offer theories about what the 'porn' video that Till Lindemann is rumoured to release on Valentine's Day will entail.

Despite starting Platz Eins episode 1 feeling disappointed about the video, through the course of our discussion and arguments, we come around to find that the video actually serves a very distinct purpose and carries with it a clear message about the nature of stardom and sexual power.

Join us for the wild ride that is -- PLATZ EINS.

Platz Eins Video Analysis - Sex and Symbolism

Part 1 of a 2 part episode on the new video 'Platz Eins' from Lindemann.

Join us for a wild ride as we delve into the lyrics and video for Platz Eins... going from being disturbed and disappointed, to somewhat impressed and intrigued by the logic within it. As much as we hate to admit it, the visuals of the video offer a compelling (and disturbing) narrative of power and personality.

We talk about symbolism, misogyny, the use of violence, the nature of power, the cult of personality, onstage/offstage personas, and.... SEX -- because what is a discussion of a Lindemann video without resulting in SEX. 

For the full discussion of the use of explicit sexual visuals in the video, as well as the use of porn in the new Lindemann tour, and what it may all potentially mean, check out episode 2!

Opposites Attract In Frau Und Mann - Lindemann

We're finally back and this week we are talking about the song and video for Frau und Mann, from the new Lindemann album of the same name.

We love the video and there are lots of interesting 'opposites' to discuss. Come along for the journey. 

 

Frau & Mann - Lindemann Album Review

This week on RandomRammstein, the Lyric Lunatics get stuck into the new album from Lindemann -- Frau & Mann. We discuss the eclectic sound of the album, the biggest surprises, and our favourite songs. This album is a wild roller-coaster ride of different genres and topics, that left us jamming one minute, laughing the next, then gasping in surprise.

All in all, it was a hell of a ride and we can't wait to ride again!

Ich Weiss Es Nicht - Lindemann

We don't know... we just don't know...but that won't stop us chatting about Ich Weiss Es Nicht (I don't know) - one of the new singles and videos from Lindemann.

The lyrics are heart-breaking and curious and the video is... well... you'll have to listen to find out our thoughts on the video.

As always we cover a wide range of topics in the course of analyzing the lyrics and video, including: the problems with fame, the nature of personality and identity, dementia, and AI as a video author. 

Knebel - song & video review (Lindemann)

The latest Lindemann videos have given us lots of food for thought -- but this week we are tackling Knebel - is it tasteless, a feminist statement piece or a chance to thumb their noses at the stupidity of censorship… we have our theories...and we’re gagging to share them!

We analyze the lyrics (as always) but for those of you who want to jump ahead to find out our thoughts on the video... jump to time mark 19:35...that's when the 'juicy' stuff begins (so to speak).

One last word...

TENTACLES.

WARNING: If you have not seen the uncensored version there ARE spoilers in the podcast... we also discuss blood so... you have been warned. We aren't pulling our punches (or thoughts) on this one.

As always, we'd love your feedback.

Part 2 - YASB Emigrate - Video Analysis & Discussion

Part 2 of our 2 part episode on You Are So Beautiful

We have ALOT to say about these videos because they are fascinating! From location aesthetics, to that glorious wig, to costumes, filming choices, good/evil symbolism and yes... SEX as a video element... we roam far and wide as we unpack the original YASB video. Then we turn our analytical lens to the acoustic version of the song and video, to unpack the more subtle symbolism/aesthetics.

And yet again we wonder... WHAT IS IN THE BLOODY BOX?! :)

Part 2 is a double-length episode that digs through the layered symbolism and parallel characterizations in the first YASB video, as well as exploring the aesthetic choices as symbolic in the acoustic version.

As always -- please reach out -- we'd love to hear from you!
