Fans who already followed the band in 2009 know that the German Federal Republic censured the album Liebe ist für alle da
shortly after its release. The album was completely removed from German record shops, until the return a few weeks later of a censored version without the song Ich tu dir weh
and without some pictures of the booklet. The Bundesrepublik thought it was encouraging minors to shocking practices and unsafe sex.
Six years later, the case takes a new turn. Rammstein today asks the Regional Court of Bonn damages of 66,000 euros. The bands says that they were forced to destroy 80,000 copies of the record due to the censorship.
The request of Rammstein is probably legitimate, but we wonder why it happens so late. Other elements will probably allow us to understand things more clearly in the future.
