Rammstein Hit Out At Over-Sensitive Critics

German rockers RAMMSTEIN have hit out at critics who savaged a cannibalism themed song on their last album.

The media in their native Germany rounded on the band because the track, MEIN TEIL, clashed with the trial of a man convicted of killing, cooking and eating his gay lover.

But Rammstein frontman TILL LINDEMANN insists their music shouldn't be taken so literally.

He says, "A lot of German critics found it very tasteless. But we like provocation - we feel that's our job.

"German people are very sensitive about their own history and the way the world sees them, like, 'Oh the whole world's going to think we like eating other men now?'

"It's like the abuse of children in the States. No-one thinks all Americans are paedophiles, but art and music always reflect the worst in society."
