I always imagined that if I ever taught step aerobics, I would open my class with “Du Hast” and terrify a lot of sweatband-sporting ladies into some extreme cardio.

Rammstein released the song in 1997 to the delight of FM rock radio stations everywhere (although if I recall correctly, they never had another major hit in America). In the video, a man bids his lady adieu before heading toward an isolated shack to commit what we suspect is an act of homicide. Once inside, he opts instead to party with the gentlemen of Rammstein, who greet him in horror-movie masks. Said revelry involves drinking, fighting and setting someone on fire. Our friends at Wikipedia suggest that the protagonist was previously engaged in an illicit affair with the guy who ends up killed — not that we’d ever be able to guess that. Real uplifting, guys!

To counteract this morose tale, I point you to Rammstein’s truly hilarious cover of Depeche Mode’s “Stripped.”
