It seems that 62 years after WWII the germans may not say anything about ohter countries...
I'm from Holland. There are lots of people from my country who died during WWII. Do I have to blaim Germans from my age for what there grandfathers did? I agree with Rammstein... Think, Realy think about it... If you do you will understand why people from many countries don't like Amerika/the american government...
Anti Americans Annoy me | Reviewer: Amerika
Im not a right wing nutjob Im a moderate constitutionalist but people who live in America but are so quick to bad mouth it: just remember you live in a country where you are afforded that privilege. America isn't perfect but I for one am glad its the it's USA that is the dominant force on this planet. Would you rather it had been Nazi Germany? Or perhaps you were rooting for Hirohito's Japan to keep beating the piss out of China and take over all the Pacific. Perhaps you were really hoping for Comrade Stalin to be in charge. Our constitution when upheld and adhered to makes us one of the best countries in the world. We lag behind Europe and Canada in some areas, most notable Health Care but there will always be a force emerging as a dominant role on this planet -- just be glad its not one the ones it could have been. Unfortunately with the last 7 years we have made infinately more enemies than friends and we are getting away from the core values that mades us so great.

I don't take the lyrics seriously...to do so with rock music is pure folly. But, I like the music.
rammstien | Reviewer: luke
ameika is ther best song they have ever done especially in german
people come on | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/17/07
yes the song does talk about the white house, and is supposed to be about america dominating culture, but most of the song says america is wonderful, and if not, then they talk about dancing in a circle, and coca-cola. rammstein is probably anti-bush, most europeans are, but their more likely than not anti-american.
VAS? | Reviewer: hunt
I'm an american and i too like rammstein so i'm a little on the fence if one deoesn't like country that's fine, it's called freedom of speech i'd be hypocritical to say otherwise but i do think this song, although good, doesn't reflect america. it is if i said all black people steal or all jewish people convent money or even say all canadians are just a bunch of drunk hockey players. it's all nothing more than a stereotype, and personally sterotypes only reflect soem and not all. i will end however saying that i love america much of my family have all served in the army and i will never stand agianst where i made my money and my life. so all in all good song, but if you don't like to joke about things like your country then opt not to listen to the song/
what a joke | Reviewer: estigmat | 5/6/07
America is the land of freedom?? 2 friends of mine were arrested only because they were preying in they flat with some candles... Freedom?? a place where is illegal to express religious beliefs in the open? probably I'm wrong and america is the only land of freedom in the world, but wait, i live in a small country called Portugal and in here i dont get arrested for preying in my own way. Here i can choose to be a communist or a nacionalist, NO QUESTIONS ASKED. We portugueses don't create wars, don't invade other countries for oil and weapons, and yet you americans try to invade us with your bullshit propaganda.

I hope you won't be able to read this never, but you'd try it. THIS IS AN ANNONYMOUS MESSAGE... I don't think this is a intelligent dialog... I agree in this sentence: AMERICA, LOVE IT or LEAVE IT, and personally I want to add it this:
AMERICA, LOVE IT or LEAVE IT or LEAVE IT IN PEACE

Rammstein---Amerika | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/24/06
First of all, I am american. Amerika is really a great song. Rammstein is one of my favorite bands. At first as I watched the music video, some of the lyrics bothered me (I understand German fluently)and some of the images. But if this band wants to speak out...why not let them? Besides, our country is based on freedom, of speech and almost everything else. So I think americans should be accepting of this song...even though it might contain some very unpatriotic messages.
The world is getting smaller... | Reviewer: mechafroggie | 6/5/06
People who complain that America has no culture or is evil don't actually understand what America is. Every culture all tossed into a blender which was set to "frappe". I fully understand that countries with history going back thousands of years might be xenophobic. But don't mistake the world getting smaller for American imperialism. The reality is, if America was wiped off the face of the Earth today, via comet or nuclear explosion or tidal wave, the rest of the world would still gradually turn into what America already is. With modern communication, transportation, and the inquisitive nature of every country's youth, all cultures will continue to intermingle. You can't live in your microcosm forever.
this is dumb | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/21/06
america is not a bad place, and if you hate it im sorry, i don't hate my country, i don't always agree with what our country does but again,its not MY fault, we bombed Afghanistan because they supported Al Qaeda, we bombed iraq because they supposedly had weapons of mass destruction,which i don't agree with.. we were in Vietnam because they asked for our help, we were in WW2 because we were bombed by japan, we tried not to go to war in ww2 but japan pushed us into it, we were in korea because the south asked for our help,we were in the first iraq war because kuwait and saudi arabia asked for our help, in ww1 we were trying to keep peace with britain and germany and not ally with any of them, but they kept attacking our cargo ships, then germany sent a telegram to mexico stating to declare war on the u.s so we were pushed into war, the civil war was us against us trying to sop slavery, and the revolutionary war was us against britain trying to gain our independance. you see the u.s tries to help people when they ask for it, but if we don't they get mad because we werent there and if we do we get spit on anyway,we are just trying to get the world to like us, we are still a young country, and germans have no right to make fun of america we have done nothing to them, other than fighting them in ww1 and 2 but again we were pushed into the conflicts by germany and its allies both time.
