    So the song is called 'Du Hast', and is spelt 'Du Hast Mich', which means 'You have me', however in the song Rammstein pronounces the 's' on 'Hast' sharply, so it sounds like 'Hasst' [Haßt] which translates to 'You hate me.' The song is supposed to have a double meaning.. As it is a play on German wedding vows. For example, in the song when they sing 'Will you, until Death separates you, be faithful to her forever?' they answer with 'no' instead of 'yes'.

    In the English version of the song, they changed the lyrics to just 'You hate me' since you can't really have a double meaning with 'hate' and 'have' in English.
