Mein Land

Album: Made in Germany 1995-2011 (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the first single and only previously unreleased track from German Industrial Metal band Rammstein's retrospective, Made in Germany 1995-2011. The English translation of the title is "My Land" and the song is a parodic satire about European xenophobia and Anti-Immigrationists. It was released on November 11, 2011 in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and internationally three days later.
  • Swedish director Jonas Åkerlund, who has previously worked with Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne and the Prodigy, created the video. It was filmed on May 23, 2011 at Sycamore Beach, in Malibu, California and depicts the band members at a 1964 Southern California beach party. It later cuts to the same location in the present day as we watch Rammstein perform whilst flames shoot from their guitars amidst a carnal circus.
