1. In Germany it is still alowed to sell so called "indizierte" (subscripted) media to people, who are over 18 years old. It is illegal to sell it to kids under 18 years or to promote the media in the public.

2. The album was not put on the index because of the "SS"-Sign used in the booklet (song "P.R.E.S.S."). Following songs are the reason for the subscription. The information is taken from the official announcement of the Bundesprüfstelle für jugendgefährdende Medien (BPjM) May 28th 2002:
- Song 01 "Get up while you can": The listener is invited to give his blood to fight an (undefined) enemy.
- Song 02 "Fuck all!": The listener is invited to cut policemen into pieces.
- Song 03 "Sick to death": The song preaches "I want to destroy" and "burn Berlin".
- Song 04 "Deutschland has gotta die": The song preaches "Germany has gotta die" and invites the listener to burn Germany.
- Song 08 "You can't hold us back": The song preaches to burn stores and wants to see the white men craving in the streets.
- Song 09 "Heat wave": The song preaches you need violence to destroy the society.

3. Every other song on this album is not on the index, because they are not mentioned in the official announcement.

4. According to german law every other medium which contains one of the mentioned songs would put automatic on the index. But in fact, no other album, single, maxi or compilation is actually standing on the german index. Examples:
- Deutschland Has Gotta Die! (7", contains "Deutschland has gotta die")
- Destroy 2000 Years Of Culture E.P. (CD/12", contains "You can't hold us back")
- Sick To Death E.P. (CD/12", contains "Sick to death")
- Burn, Berlin, Burn! (CD/2x12", contains "Fuck all!", "Sick to death", "Deutschland has gotta die", "Heat wave")
- Live In Philadelphia Dec. 1997 (CD/12" and as part of the special edition of the album "60 second wipe out", contains "Get up while you can", "Deutschland has gotta die", "Sick to death")
- Redefine The Enemy! (CD, contains "Sick To Death" (Remix), "Deutschland has gotta die" (Remix)
- 1992-2000 (CD/2x12", contains "Deutschland has gotta die" (Remix), "Get up while you can", "You can't hold us back", "Sick to death").
Conclusion: In Germany you can buy every song legal, even if you under are 18.

On March 28, 2002, five years after it's initial release, this record was put on the index by the Bundesprüfstelle für Jugendgefährdende Medien (BPjM), the German government institution that 'protects' the youth against 'bad influences'. In other words: it is forbidden to sell this cd in Germany. The idea to index this album came from the Bayerische Landesjugendamt (bureau of youth affairs of Bayern). The decisive track was 'Deutschland (Has Gotta Die!)'. It is, according to the BL, 'anticonstitutional'.

This cd totally blew my mind. I heard "sick to death" on an MTV amp compliation and I was intrigued. I had no idea what I was getting into. The singer's (female) voice was totally amazing. The constantly changing hardcore licks are totally insane (and I can't stand hardcore!). This album set my musicial tone for a good part of my freshman year of high school and would set up my taste for electronic music. Crazy stuff on this album. Crazy.
