My Top 100 Favourite Songs 2010-14 Edition: #87

#87. “Mein Land" – Rammstein
Released: 11/11/11
Album: Made in Germany 1995–2011

Rammstein have been very quiet in this decade so far. Sure they've done some touring and festivals but on the "new music" front there's been a little bit of chatter here and there but very little progress on a new album. Latest news suggests they will be bringing a new album out this year or next year but who knows.

So the only true new song by Rammstein really this decade is the terrific and hilarious "Mein Land". Taking the piss out of Baywatch and beach programs in general, "Mein Land" once again shows that Rammstein go against the grain when it comes to showing that Germans truly do have a good sense of humour. The song itself is good but not great, but the video alone makes the song better. This song was on their Greatest Hits compilation, the only new song on the release, but it fits really well with all the fantastic tracks Rammstein have created over the years. "Mein Land" is a fine record, pure and simple.

Here's the music video if you want to hear it!
