Their song Ich will, from 2001’s Mutter, features in the movies, featuring a variety of events, including table-tennis, wheelchair basketball, cycling, wheelchair fencing and long-jump. Check out the trailer below, and head to Rammstein’s YouTube channel to watch them all.

In other Rammstein news, frontman Till Lindemann last week announced the release of a series of increasingly expensive NFTs, with the dearest package boasting a €100,000 (£85,000) price tag, although for that you also get to go to Russia to have dinner with the big man, so there’s that.
