While German metal heavyweights Rammstein were in Mexico City for a three-night run at Foro Sol earlier this month, guitarist Richard Kruspe took to the streets to perform one of the band's most popular songs.

Wearing his stage gear and armed with what looks like a ESP E-II RZK-I Burnt Richard Z Signature, the guitarist treated gathered fans to a stripped back version Du Hast. The song, taken from their 1997 album Sehnsucht, has enjoyed 371,810,000 streams on Spotify to date. We can't remember the last time a Rammstein song wasn't accompanied by a retina-searing spectacle.

Busker Du, anyone?

Rammstein will undertake a European stadium trek next summer. The tour kicks off on May 22 in Lithuania and will end with two shows in Belgium.
