Rammstein - Mein Teil

"Mein Teil" is the first single by the German Industrial metal band Rammstein from their fourth album Reise, Reise.

The Title means "My Part", but can also be interpreted as "my penis".

The song is inspired by the infamous case of Armin Meiwes and Bernd Jürgen Armando Brandes.

In March 2001, in Rotenburg, Germany, the two men, both in their 40's, met each other, cut off and cooked Brandes' penis and consumed it together.

Afterwards, Meiwes killed Brandes—with Brandes' consent—and ate his remains.

As a result, Meiwes was originally sentenced to eight-and-a-half years in jail for manslaughter, but was later charged with murder and sentenced to life imprisonment.

A prominent phrase in the song is "Denn du bist was du isst und ihr wißt was es ist" According to Rammstein's bassist Oliver "Ollie" Riedel, the song came about after "one of our members brought a newspaper to rehearsal and it had a story about the cannibal guy in it.

We were fascinated, shocked and amused at the same time." Vocalist Till Lindemann comments that "It's so sick that it becomes fascinating and there just has to be a song about it."Mein Teil attracted considerable controversy in Germany; the media dubbed it the "Kannibalensong", which helped to boost it to second place in the German music charts after its release in early August 2004.

Remixes of the song were done by Arthur Baker and the Pet Shop Boys.

At the beginning of the song in the video, the phrase "Suche gut gebauten 18-30 jährigen zum Schlachten - Der Metzgermeister" ("Looking for a well built 18 to 30 year old to be slaughtered - The Master Butcher") is spoken.

This is a quote taken from an online post by Armin Meiwes.

Rammstein was nominated for "Mein Teil" in the category of "Best Metal Performance" in the 48th Annual Grammy Awards.
