Rammstein Release Censored Album

German rockers RAMMSTEIN are releasing an edited version of their new album - after it was pulled from record store shelves because of explicit artwork and lyrics.
Authorities acted swiftly after discovering the CD cover for Liebe Ist Für Alle Da (Love is for all) features masked, naked woman on guitarist Richard Kruspe's lap.
They ruled the image inappropriate for children and also objected to a track called P**sy, which featured sexually suggestive lyrics and an X-rated video.
Offending songs and artwork have been removed from the disc and German stores have been ordered to sell only the censored version.
Rammstein aren't entirely happy with the ruling, with keyboard player Christian Lorenz dubbing it a "petty misunderstanding of art and a massive interference with civil rights".
But the album is still tipped to storm the European Albums chart - where it currently sits in second place.
