United Press International is reporting that a convicted German cannibal has filed suit against industrial metallers RAMMSTEIN, claiming their song "Mein Teil" (My Piece) is based on his crimes.

Armin Meiwes was sentenced to 8 1/2 years in prison for eating a man (Bernd Juergen Brandes) he met on the Internet. He filmed the entire incident and confessed as well, but said it was not murder since his victim wanted to be eaten.

Speaking to MTV.com in December 2004 about the inspiration for the track, RAMMSTEIN guitarist Richard Kruspe said, "I was really interested to find out about why he would want to kill a man and eat [him]. What I figured out from some research was that Meiwes' mother totally destroyed all kinds of relationships he had in his childhood. So, he felt that if he did this, his victim would stay with him forever. It was just a really interesting story, so we decided to make a song about it."
