Top Ten Rammstein Songs that Entered the Top Ten on the German Media Control Charts

Martin_Canine
Being one of the, if not the most popular band of Germany, Rammstein of course are familiar with high chart positions in their home country. Apart from their debut "Herzeleid", which peaked at number 6, all of their albums topped the German charts, including one compilation and three live records - and they announced a new studio album to come, so we can expect even more. Due to their heavy sound and dark lyricism, they aren't one of the groups that get frequent radio airplay with their songs, but they are well known for their music videos, and when music channels like VIVA and MTV were really big in the 2000s, they were very present there. This of course also lead to high single sales and quite a bunch of hit songs. So let's celebrate their top ten hits with this list!

2 Du hast

It's not a bad song, but I never got why exactly this song gets that much international attention. - Martin_Canine

Because it has a better riff than the likes of sonne, which is not nearly even remotely as memorable melodically and is not even half as powerful or climactic but rather hum-drum. In order for a track to succeed on all levels, it can't rely on trivia or lyrics, it must stand the test of time through guitar riffs and composition. - PrinceZarbon

I don't know why either but I like this song... - Metal_Treasure

3 Mein Herz brennt

Although first released in 2001 on the "Mutter" album, this song wasn't a single until 2012 to collide with the release of a music video collection. It charted in 2012. - Martin_Canine
