KMFDM is the brainchild of founding member Sascha Konietzko. KMFDM was founded in Paris on February 29, 1984 as a joint effort between Konietzko and German painter/multi-media performer Udo Sturm to perform for the opening of an exhibition of young European artists at the Grand Palais. Sturm had no lasting musical aspirations and Konietzko was interested in studio recordings more than the occasional art-performance, therefore he joined forces with then-Hamburg-based studio owner Raymond Watts and drummer Klaus Schandelmaier, later known as En Esch. After working the Hamburg underground and releasing three albums on European labels they began their relationship with Wax Trax! Records in Chicago, Illinois. After touring with Ministry in 1989–1990, they were signed to Wax Trax! Records and quickly became a part of the industrial music scene in Chicago that included Ministry, Front 242 and My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult. Konietzko then moved to Chicago; Esch followed a year later. After close friend and president of Wax Trax! Records Jim Nash died of AIDS, KMFDM relocated to Seattle, Washington.

KMFDM has no fixed line-up; rather, it is a "revolving-door" collaboration of contributors. Konietzko is the only member that has been directly involved with every KMFDM project. En Esch, Raymond Watts, and guitarist Günter Schulz are other key members in the band's history.

Other notable musicians that have contributed to KMFDM projects include Bill Rieflin of Ministry/R.E.M., Nivek Ogre from Skinny Puppy and ohGr, John DeSalvo of Chemlab, Tim Skold of Shotgun Messiah/Marilyn Manson, F.M. Einheit of Einstürzende Neubauten, Nina Hagen, and spoken word artist Nicole Blackman. Additionally, Chemlab, Die Warzau, Nine Inch Nails, My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult, and Giorgio Moroder have remixed music for KMFDM.

In addition to all of this KMFDM took the blame for the columbine shooting because of some lyrics in songs

In wake of the Columbine High School massacre it was revealed that lyrics to KMFDM songs ("Power", "Son of a Gun", "Stray Bullet", "Waste") were posted on the website of shooter Eric Harris, and that the massacre coincided with the release date of the album Adios and the birthday of Adolf Hitler. The media was quick to jump on the apparent connection of the massacre to violent entertainment and Nazism. In response, Konietzko issued a statement the following day:

First and foremost, KMFDM would like to express their deep and heartfelt sympathy for the parents, families and friends of the murdered and injured children in Littleton. We are sick and appalled, as is the rest of the nation, by what took place in Colorado yesterday.

KMFDM are an art formnot a political party. From the beginning, our music has been a statement against war, oppression, fascism and violence against others. While some of the former band members are German as reported in the media, none of us condone any Nazi beliefs whatsoever.

epitome of incomprehensibility Pah! About Toxic Cyborg's report:
Bands, movies and such (now video games) are always being used as a scapegoat on behalf of the violently inclined--a variant of "the devil made me do it"--maybe there is too much violent material out there but that doesn't mean these oversimplifications are valid.
Correlation doesn't prove cause-and-effect (yay, statistical methods).

Furthermore, two audience members can have radically different views on the same song, video, etc.
Example: I read that the movie Basketball Diaries had been implicated in the Columbine shooting because of one scene when the main character daydreams about doing something similar.
In eleventh grade, my class watched it because my teacher considered it an anti-drug film.

This had absolutely nothing to do with the actual band, it was just a side comment. (EoI squeezes into the margins of the page and watches the others parade past.) Carry on.
