Rammstein’s NSFW Box Set

Remember the 90s? Remember that barking German band Rammstein? They had that crunchy, metallic hit single called “Du Hast?” (see above). Seemed kinda homo and horny in that “latex bodysuit night at the gay bar” way? Not ringing a bell? Well, let’s just say that you do remember them. Even fondly. You’ll be happy to know that they didn’t disband after that one taste of American success. They just went back to Germany and got even nastier. And “Liebe Ist Fur Alle Da,” their forthcoming CD, will available in an attractive limited edition metal box set, one that features a pair of handcuffs, some lube and six pink dildos molded on the band members’ own Euro-penises (sizes vary). There’s also some music in there somewhere.

The never-making-it-through-airport-security holiday gift is both a happy shout-out to what we think of when backroom-bar-having cities like Berlin come to mind and a nod to rock history’s favorite cheerleader, Cynthia Plaster Caster, the artist who made a career out of arousing rock stars like Jimi Hendrix by any means necessary and immortalizing the resulting boners as sculpture.

There’s even a commercial, in the form of the band’s new video, “Pussy.” It’s basically all the guys in the band having hardcore sex with various women and showing off the dildo-inspiring equipment. It almost certainly airs in primetime on German television but if you watch it at work you’re going to be fired.
