Stripped (4:43)

Cover of Völkerball

From Völkerball and 28 other releases

“Stripped” is a single by the German industrial metal band Rammstein. It is a cover of the Depeche Mode song. However, the song cut the lyric “Let me see you stripped down to the bone” to “Let me see you stripped.” (The lyric is restored in the Heavy Mental Mix by Charlie Clouser.) The song was originally on the tribute album, “For the Masses”. Depeche Mode is said to have liked the cover. It is unusual among Rammstein songs in that it is sung entirely in English.

The cover art is a drawing by Austrian artist Gottfried Helnwein.

The video includes nothing but footage from the film Olympia, directed by Leni Riefenstahl, which documented the 1936 Summer Olympics held in Berlin, which sparked controversy because they were held while Adolf Hitler was in office.

    I agree that Till should not sing in english. I know he's recording (or he recorded - i'm not sure) solo album in english. I'm afraid to listen it:)

    A solid and original cover. Stands on it's own merit without diminishing the original in any way.

    Наиотвратнейший кавер на ДМ, который только можно себе представить. Голос вокалиста, имхо, мерзотный (в сравнении с голосом Дэйва - и подавно), да и произношение... пожалуй, единственное, что удалось - это музыка.

    This is probably the most hilarious cover I've ever heard, and not in a good way. I like Rammstein, but the vocals in this are hilariously shitty.

    I know this song for 9 years and i never liked it. But now i recognize how beautiful it is. Although i hated this so long, now it's my favorite Rammstein song.
