"Sonne" (German for "Sun") is a song and single by the German Neue Deutsche Härte group Rammstein. According to Till Lindemann, the song was originally written as an entrance song for the boxer Vitali Klitschko, which was also the working title of the song.

The song's melody was also spoofed as a false Nazi rally on YouTube and Lime Wire. It was known simply as "Hitler" It referenced Hitler, Heinrich Himmler, and Auschwitz.

Music video

The video features the band as dwarves working for a gold dust-addicted Snow White. Apparently, this came about while several of the band members were watching the old Disney film, "Snow White", and had Sonne playing in the background, giving them the idea for the video. Also (as told by Paul in the Making Of Sonne video) the video came out of a video Olliver (bassist) did mixing Sonne song and parts of "Snow White" movie with his computer. The band supposedly went through nearly 40 different ideas for the video such as the story of a Boxer, before choosing the Snow White theme. One of the other ideas was a video about the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima. Lady Snow-White (German "Schneewittchen") is played by the Russian soap actress Joulia Stepanova.

Live story

It debuted as "Klitschko" in April 16th, 2000. The song was very different to the final version released in Mutter. Sonne was also played in some concerts of the Big Day Out festival 2001, and those concerts were the only time the song was played like it was released on the album. When played live, the band usually omits the final stanza, and instead they play a slightly longer intro and outro. Theatrical flames shoot several feet into the air when Rammstein plays the song. Since May 2001, Sonne has been played live in every Rammstein concert to date.
