|Rammstein single chronology|
The single was originally planned for a release on 14 June 2004. First it was delayed to 28 June 2004 before it was ultimately pushed to 26 July 2004, because of "controversial discussions between the band and record company".
The artwork for this single was designed by Plantage. The jewel case contains a small misprint and is therefore available in two different versions: when looking at the side, where band and song title are, you can see, that some pressings also show the catalog number, others don't.

The single came in some different formats. Mainly as a jewel case and as a digipack. But Russian countries had the single in an album jewel case and Germany got a 3" single, while the Benelux countries got a card sleeve. The single was also released as a double 12" LP. Also there are some different promotional CDs with either four tracks or even six (called "Hand on Mein Teil"). The 3" CD format (also called Pock-it CD) was later sold together with all singles off Reise, Reise as set.
