Italian music act Melodicka Bros decided to cover the Rammstein song “Amerika” to the style of bluegrass and folk music. “Amerika” is a song off of the band’s 2004 album, Reise, Reise.

Per their YouTube channel, the Melodicka Bros are two brothers who perform a variety of covers. Their latest effort involves a popular Rammstein track. In the video associated with this cover (which you can find below), rather than embrace the industrial nature of Rammstein, the Melodicka Bros go for an Americana/bluegrass presentation.

Their video starts with a comical message to viewers as well, with text on the screen sharing the following:

“We sincerely apologize for killing the German language, American culture and Italy’s reputation all in a single video.”

Here is the original song for context:
