Rammstein have announced a re-release of the live concert DVD Live aus Berlin, covering the band’s infamous 1998 gig. The new edition comes with footage previously censored in the original release.
In a post announcing the release on Facebook, the band said: “Get ready for the re-release of Live aus Berlin – Rammstein’s iconic Berlin concert in August of 1998! Enjoy this concert-film, including the previously censored rendition of Bück Dich!”

Bück Dich was omitted from the original DVD release as during its performance frontman Till Lindemann engaged in simulated anal sex with keyboard player Christian Lorenz, complete with a dildo that squirted water. The performances led to a fine and a night in jail for Lorenz and Lindemann.
The band are known for their overly theatrical live shows, often involving enormous props, flamethrowers, BDSM gear and mind-boggling combinations of all three. Fore example, During the Mutter tour the group descended onto the stage from a giant uterus while wearing diapers. While performing Engel, Lindemann (a qualified pyrotechnician) dons enormous metal wings, fitted with flamethrowers.
A shorter version of the concert film has been made available on YouTube (unsurprisingly, without Bück Dich…). Take a look below:
