Keine Lust (3:42)

Cover of Reise Reise

From Reise Reise and 20 other releases

“Keine Lust” (No Desire) is a song by the German band Rammstein. It was released as a fourth & final single from the album “Reise, Reise” on 28 February 2005 in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland as a maxi-single, a limited edition digipak single, a 7” vinyl single, a 12” Vinyl single, and as a two-track. The title is a German phrase which might be translated as “No Desire”, although the phrase as used in the lyrics “Ich habe keine Lust” is more like the English “I do not feel like” or “I do not want to”. But translates perfectly to “I have no desire to”.

In the “Keine Lust” video, filmed in January 2005 and finally presented only a month later, the band is morbidly obese. The film appears to be a reunion with visibly aged band members and instruments that are clearly old and dusty. Out of all of the band members only keyboardist Flake appeared not to have gained any weight (because “anything he doesn’t want to do, he doesn’t do”, which includes eating). He arrives in a motorized wheelchair, just in time to play the keyboard part. At the end of the video, the rest of the band leaves, abandoning Flake who has managed to stand during the song and now cannot sit back down.

The video was up for a nomination for the MTV European Music Awards in November 2005.

On the video “The Making of Keine Lust”, guitarist Richard Kruspe discussed the meaning of the song and music video.

“You know, after all of these years we’re full-up! Fame, success, money. We don’t want to do anything anymore! Nothing! That’s the idea in the song. We’ve returned to the starting point again.
