For nearly a decade, metal folklore had Rammstein banned in the United States, the result of a public indecency arrest and far too many onstage sex scenes. But after successfully conquering Madison Square Garden last fall, Germany’s version of The Beatles — at least in terms of popularity — recently embarked on a U.S. tour. Along the way, they were invited to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and the clips from last night’s performance are the best things you’ll see all day. I promise.
Performing “Du Hast” and “Feuer Frei”, Rammstein brought their full arsenal of tricks to the broadcast. In fact, in the the four minutes it took to play “Du Hast”, frontman Till Lindemann managed to both breathe fire and light a roadie on fire, all while various fiery explosions went off in five-second intervals. Check out the videos below (via The Audio Perv).
Oh, and props on the booking, Kimmel. Now let’s get ’em on Ellen.
