I'm not making a statement on how the whole of the US feels about them, I'm just talking about my personal experiences growing up, and their popularity in the town I was from in Ohio. There were definitely just as many Rammstein fans as Metallica fans in my middle school and high school, if not more.

The reason they sold out MSG is quite simple. It has nothing to do with them being insanely popular at all. The fact is they haven't toured here in forever, they played MSG on a saturday night and it was their only US date announced. So you got fans from all over North America to make a weekend trip to NYC and see them. That's the reason they sold the place out.

They may have a good following but if this wasn't a special one time only performance they wouldn't have had a chance in hell of selling out MSG.
In Germany their just as popular as Metallica if not more so.

there's a curiosity about them bc of their stage show & theatrics. Everyone i know who went (about 5 people) all think the band is complete shit but wanted to see their stage show.

couple that with sanitarium's summation and u have the reason they sold the place out.

i equate the curiosity about them similar to cradle of filth back about 11 years ago or so when they barely played shows here yet sold out alot of bigger venues bc people wanted to know what all the hub bub was about. yes i just used the word hub bub.
