"Deutschland" (German for "Germany") is a song by German Neue Deutsche Härte band Rammstein. It was released as the lead single from the band's untitled seventh studio album on 28 March 2019. It was their first piece of new music released since "Mein Land" in 2011. "Deutschland" became Rammstein's second number-one single in Germany after "Pussy" in 2009.[1] It was also a number-one hit in Hungary and Switzerland and reached the top 5 in Austria and Finland.

Music video[edit]

The video was directed by Specter Berlin and was released online on 28 March 2019 at 18:00 CET[2] following a 35-second preview[3] for the video two days prior. The video preview sparked criticism a few hours after release. The dark, violent, even macabre video, typical for the band, features various events from Germany’s history,[4] including Roman times, the Middle Ages, the World Wars and the Cold War; and fantasy scenes set in outer space. German actress Ruby Commey also appears throughout the video and is credited as Germania. The ending credits feature a piano version of the band's 2001 single "Sonne".
