Kiddie Train Conductor Blasts Industrial Metal at Siberian Children’s Park


On an otherwise tranquil spring morning, a children’s park in the Siberian city of Omsk was treated to the cacophonic sounds of industrial metal band Rammstein, the Gorod 55 news website reported.

Video shows the colorful kids’ train blaring the German band’s roaring 1997 single “Du Hast” while slowly making its way through the Osmk park, causing children and parents alike to stop and stare.

Omsk residents are perhaps more used to the sounds of birdsong, wind rustling in the trees and children playing — not the train conductor’s noisy song choice.

But there’s nothing wrong with expanding one’s musical horizons.
