Never before has a German death metal band continuously pushed the boundaries of political and social lyricism as much as Rammstein. Their intentionally ambiguous lyrics have led to accusations of everything from the glorification of Nazism, to responsibility for the Columbine Colorado school shooting in 1999, and in 2009 the German government even banned one of their albums from public display because of its display of Sado Masochism. Of course, we at EMP are huge fans and our Rammstein shop is full to the brim. Here, you can get everything from Rammstein t-shirts and hoodies to swim short and lunch boxes.
The Rammstein story
A hand shoots into the East German air and the future of 6 men is forever changed - they just don't know it yet. The hand belongs to Till Lindemann who was at a gig watching a band called Feeling B at the time. An offer to let the band crash at his house, sets Till and his future bandmates on a path that eventually leads to them becoming one of the biggest and most controversial bands in Germany.
Choosing to sing in their native language from the beginning, the band's first song was about an accident in Ramstein in Germany, which killed or injured over 80 people. Since then their songs have covered everything from sexual violence, incest, abuse, necrophilia, cannibalism, and pyromania. Over the years their contentious topic choices have gained them the wider attention of both fans and critics alike, but they have successfully weathered a 25 year storm.
In September of 1995 they released their debut album ‘Herzeleid’ (German for "heartache"), which was a slow starter. But things soon began to change after Swedish band Clawfinger let them support a handful of shows. Fast-forward to 2019 and Rammstein saw their biggest UK show ever at Milton Keynes Stadium. The sell out gig included not just big pyro on stage, but the whole way round the entire arena. Predicted to top even this performance is the recently announced 2020 gig at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena. If you’ve got tickets then you’re definitely going to want to browse through our extensive catalogue of Rammstein merchandise to make sure that you look the part.
Rammstein have also brought their live shows to the USA, as documented in the ‘Rammstein in Amerika’ live DVD – what a concert! All the tickets to the Madison Square Garden show were sold out within just 20 minutes. But it’s in their homeland that the band really let loose – their shows at Wuhlheide in Berlin are particularly legendary.
Over their long career, Rammstein have maintained their trademark sound and remained as provocative as ever, as is proven by albums from ‘Herzeleid’, ‘Sehnsucht’, ‘Mutter’, ‘Reise, ‘Rosenrot’ and ‘Liebe ist für alle da (LIFAD)’. As the saying goes, exceptions often prove the rule - songs like ‘Pussy’ and ‘Stripped’ may be in English, but they stick to the typical Rammstein sound as always. There’s even an English version of the song ‘Engel’.
There appears to be no end in sight for one of Germany’s most successful exports, and we’ve got plenty of merch to make sure that you’re kitted out for whatever Rammstein throws your way. With over 30 designs to choose from, finding the perfect Tee just got a whole lot easier.
Rammstein have used their distinctive typeface since their first published recordings, and have used their logo since the release of mutter in 2001. This cult lettering and the characteristic logo are a prominent feature on almost every Rammstein T-shirt in the EMP merch store, and song titles also regularly appear. On one of the T-shirts the front logo even glows in the dark ,but maybe the coolest feature on one of our womens shirts is the adjustable braces covering the characteristic flag. You can easily show off your love of the band with our T-shirts, which come in sizes up to 5XL, including the classic radio design, ‘Evil German’ and eponymous Du-Ich-Wir-Ihr slogan.
The colour contrasting print of the ‘white bars’ T-shirt is sure to earn a place in your rucksack for upcoming festivals, and the faded shades of the “in Ketten” shirt, combined with a logo in chains, might make you part with some of your paycheck. The fiery red and yellow shades of the lava logo shirt will mark you out as unmistakably a fan, or why not deck yourself out with the official ‘Engel’ t-shirt, featuring iconic golden wings - “Gott weiß, ich will kein Engel sein!”
We’ve got even more Rammstein merchandise for you at the ready with, the black "Amour" shirt, which features a large skull and of course the classic lettering. From the album ‘Reise, Reise’ we have a white skull in front of an orange spray-print, with text-excerpt from the song "Dalai Lama" on the back of the T-shirt.
Whatever Rammstein merchandise you’re looking for, we’ve got both Mens and womens clothing that will become a firm favourite in your wardrobe.

For some fans there is nothing quite like owning physical music media from their favourite bands, and whether you prefer vinyl or CD’s, EMP has got you covered. The seventh studio album from Rammtein is untitled and appears as a double-LP in a gatefold (180g-pressing / including 6 photo inserts). Like all Rammstein albums, the 11 songs were recorded in the "Studios La Fabrique '' near Avignon in the seclusion of Provence, France. But for the first time Berlin-based producer Olsen Involtini sat at the controls.The album is available as a Standard Digipak, Special Edition and Double Vinyl, all of which are available in the EMP Rammstein shop.
You can also grab a vinyl copy of the re-release of the 2005 fifth album in our Rammstein merch store. Known for upping their game with every album they release – it’s no different with ‘Rosenrot’. This record achieves a melodic sound, combined with superb lyrics, but you also notice progress on the production side.
It’s rare that a band’s debut album ends up being the best work of their whole career. And yet Rammstein managed to do just that. Despite initial difficulties, ‘Herzeleid’ has well earned its platinum status. The sound on the sensational ‘Herzeleid’ album is honest and truly powerful. This masterpiece includes hard-rock classics such as ‘Weisses Fleisch’, ‘Du Riechst So Gut’ and ‘Seemann’. Grab a re-release of the 1995 debut album at EMP. The 10" vinyl single 'Ausländer' contains the song 'Radio' and the two colors-remix of 'Radio' as well as the title track.
