Live aus Berlin (German for Live from Berlin), is a recording of a concert by the German NDH-metal band Rammstein, performed in 1998 and released a year later. It has been released in several formats:

  • CD (15 tracks)
  • 2 CD Limited Edition (18 tracks + multimedia content)
  • Censored VHS/DVD (Without Bück dich)
  • Uncensored VHS (With Bück dich)

The performance of "Bück dich" ("Bend down", "Bend over") is controversial. The mimed portrayal of anal sex using a water-squirting dildo led to the video being given an 18 certificate in Europe. Furthermore, the DVD release of the concert does not include the performance at all, though it is included on the VHS and CD releases.

  • The DVD version also contains a subtitled interview, with the band's members, discussing Rammstein in general, and a multi-angle area featuring Tier, Du hast, and Rammstein. There is also a 2 stage quiz accessible through PCs.

Easter eggs[edit]

  • When accessing the number pad feature at the Menu of the DVD and entering '23' anywhere in the main menu, the music video Stripped will play. The song is a cover of the Depeche Mode song and is also featured as a bonus track on Rammstein's second album Sehnsucht.
  • As winning the second part of the quiz, a weblink and secret password is given in order to download a Rammstein screensaver. The webpage is no longer available.
