RAMMSTEIN have reportedly been sued by a synthwave duo called NINJA CYBORG for plagiarism.
NINJA CYBORG, hailing from France, claimed that the German giants stole their song "The Sunny Road," which came out in 2018, for the 2019 song "Deutschland."

The RAMMSTEIN track was featured on their 2019 untitled album.
The French group alleges that RAMMSTEIN took the guitar riff, in particular, from their song, and sought out the advice of legal musical expert Richard Dubugnon at the Paris Court of Appeal to see if they had a case in the matter, according to DayFR Euro.

On March 27, Dubugnon stated that “without a doubt,” RAMMSTEIN "voluntarily borrowed the riff and other melodic elements" from NINJA CYBORG's "The Sunny Road," adding that there are “too many similarities" and it is plagiarism "without a doubt."
The report by DayFR Euro further adds that the members of NINJA CYBORG, Marc Botté and Martin Antiphon, were accused of plagiarizing RAMMSTEIN by fans online first, even though "The Sunny Road" came out months before "Deutschland" did. They claim the accusations started sometime in 2020.
