    With Tool's iconic record Lateralus having just turned 19 years old, it seems like a fitting time to take a look back at this moment from the Adelaide stop of Big Day Out 2011 (RIP), when Rammstein members crashed the stage and set parts of it on fire during the band's performance of Lateralus' title track.

    The clip starts with Rammstein's drummer Christoph Schenider having a drum-off with Tool's Danny Carey, before Rammstein frontman Till Lindemann and guitarist Paul Landers run on-stage wielding their signature flamethrower props, firing them into the air and setting Christoph's drum kit ablaze.

    It's a moment that even took Tool's Maynard James Keenan by surprise, who can be seen whipping out his phone to take pictures of the incident before jokingly exclaiming "I'm gonna turn these photos in to my lawyer".
