Das Modell (1997)
''Das Model'' is a song recorded by the German group Krafwerk. Rammstein covered the German version of "Das Model" and was released at November 23, 1997 as ''Das Modell''. It was released as a non-album single.
"Das Modell" is introduced by a French phrase spoken by film editor Mathilde Bonnefoy: "Mesdames et messieurs, nous avons l'honneur ce soir, de vous présenter la nouvelle collection de Rammstein" which translates to "Ladies and Gentlemen, tonight we have the honour of presenting you with Rammstein's new collection" – something that one would expect to hear about a clothing collection. The beginning sounds like a fashion catwalk. Someone belches then a bump and a scream is heard, followed by laughter and cameras clicking, apparently to sound as if the model stumbled and fell.
Despite being a single, "Das Modell" has only been played live once, on 23 October 1998 in St. Louis, MO, USA, during the Family Values tour. It had a shortened intro and outro, making it one of the few Rammstein songs to be shortened instead of extended when played live.
