Best Music Videos Of 2009: #2 Rammstein "Pussy"

It's been brought to my attention that full or partial frontal nudity has become a recent trend in pop videos, perhaps as a result of music videos no longer requiring permission from MTV programmers before becoming popular. I haven't actually seen the videos, but I've been told t.A.T.u., Girls, and The Flaming Lips have all been "letting it all hang out" so to speak.. So it shouldn't have been a complete surprise that Rammstein decided to throw their inhibitions out the window entirely and go down (huh-huh-huh go down) as possibly the first well known rock band to have all six band members (huh-huh-huh member) whipping off the towel once and for all. Something tells me Marilyn Manson is super-pissed he didn't think of this first. And much like Manson (and Tool for that matter), Rammstein seems to be repeatedly misunderstood as a band who takes themselves way too seriously, when in reality, nothing could be farther from the truth.

P.S. My favorite shot is around 2:58... Standing in front of the flag.. the big important speech to the adoring country of followers...
