Doesn't your wife like Rammstein? So why would she be surprised?

I love Engel as well! And Link 2 3 4, Sonne, Zwitter. I can't overstate how unique Lindemann's gratingly harsh metallic voice is.

I vote for Rammstein. I don't know if it's a valid reason to vote for a group, but Du Hast was the first song I ever downloaded on iTunes. Before I realized it was a scam to pay for music.

Hey it isn't a scam, it's just a more legitimate albeit expensive way of supporting your favourite bands...

More like supporting the record companies the bands are signed to.

Which if there weren't any, won't give bands the start-up attention needed, or the capacity to expand....

She loves them, which is why she would kill me if i didn't vote for them...  not sure where the confusion is there actually.  But she knows that I like them as well.

Unless you're talking about my alarm clock..  If you listen to Adios, waking up to that song is akin to having someone come in the room screaming at the top of their lungs to wake you out of a dead sleep....  which is why i love using it as my alarm clock..  cause it works, lol.

So then the only people who can listen to and download a wide variety of music are the people with extra money to spare? That's capitalism if I ever saw it.

And what's so bad about capitalism? It's hypocritical of me, but downloading music for free is downloading someone's hard work for jack squat. In a free market yes, resources are allocated to those who can pay the highest for them.

So, what's the story with you guys and all the Rammstein-alarm clocks?!?! (o.O)
Would I be out of sink here to tell that I have a simple "beep beep beep" that wakes me in the morning? LOL

having someone come in the room screaming at the top of their lungs to wake you out of a dead sleep...

I bet kids can be just as effective as an alarm clock then! Heheh... Only diference would probably be that their voice doens't have that low pitch like Till Lindemann's when they should ask for a nice glass of... "MILK... MILK... MILK 2, 3, 4!!!"

And what's so bad about capitalism? It's hypocritical of me, but downloading music for free is downloading someone's hard work for jack squat.

I'll jump in for just a sec, but only because it's an off topic-topic...
I think that the first thing they should do in the music business, is rearrange the whole system with where the money goes, rather than should - or should we not pay for music. Artists made it, record companies distribute it and earn money for both of them, so just split it 70-30 repsectively! And we're done... =)

I can't sit this one out, simply because I was the one who suggested it, so I'll be adding my bit to the pile of votes starting to emerge here! =D
For some reason, the battle is won at all fronts by Rammstein here. GWAR's costume, props, show and acts are all of high level and fantastic to look at (wish I had such a costume at home - WANT!!), but Rammstein keeps it simple, but OH-SO effective in terms of show, which makes for an orgasmic crowd I tell ya! I've seen them perform live 3 times now (all within half a year's window) and they move the crowd, even those that aren't at a festival to come and see them!
Rammstein's music wins for being original, as to where GWAR's music is metal and ... metal, yes! Rammstein's music defined their own style and the German language makes for powerful lyrics, something English can't be compared to. =P
Well, having said all that... there's one other thing I have to add to my listing of 'why Rammstein' and that's simple, just like ilberic my girlfriend would 'SLAY' me if I were to vote other than Rammstein! What's with these women and Rammstein?! Probably the pounding hypnotising voice of Till I assume... =P

So my vote clearly goes to RAMMSTEIN!!!

OH! Almost forgot... GWAR has done something that I haven't seen Rammstein do just yet, just watch this video of GWAR singing christmas carols, it's hilarious!!! Even granny likes them after the first shock! LOL Couldn't withold this from you guys! ;)

So, the first score round up shows us :
____________________________

Current 'BotB' Battle :

0 - GWAR
4 - RAMMSTEIN

____________________________

Sorry waluigi, couldn't help myself for continuing the score count there... hope you don't mind! =)

So, Rammstein has taken a comfortable lead over GWAR here, something that might have been expected, allthough the metalheads might proove different if they visit and vote... so, make them come to see the battle between Rammstein and GWAR!

LET!... THEM!... VO-HO-HO-HOTE!!!

Possibly because I am terrified of being late for school....nothing beats having a loud German grunt wake you up everyday.
