Certified Platinum for Rammstein's "Sehnsucht" Album
The album booklet folds out to reveal six different covers, one for each band member (each photo depicting the member with a horrible facial mutilation). The cover most commonly seen features Till Lindemann with a muzzle and odd metal objects blocking his view, as they are placed over his eyes. The cover art was created by Austrian artist Gottfried Helnwein. The album is the only album entirely in German to be certified Platinum by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America)in the United States.
