The Russian band RADIO TAPOK not only covers Rammstein songs — they also recreate the crazy music videos, translating the songs into Russian, much to the delight of their thousands of fans.

German metal band Rammstein can always be counted on to raise a stir. But their latest stunt appears to have hit a particular nerve in Russia.
In support of Russia's LGBTQ community, two male members of the German heavy metal group kissed in front of a massive crowd in Moscow. Under a so-called gay propaganda law, the kiss could be considered illegal.
