The Day of Rockening

I have discovered my new favourite band. They're called Lordi, and they rock harder than any band has rocked before. The band is from Finland, which they represented in an international battle of the bands called the Euro-Vision Song Contest. Obviously they won, and were honoured by the president of Finland herself (who looks like Conan O'Brien).

Check out some of this critically acclaimed band's work below. The first one is what won them the contest, but all the videos will rock your ass.





Hell yeah. Evil Dead rules.




He's my bitch too.

And this last one shows their sensitive side:



Yes. The arockalypse is upon us. We can finally live the Monsterican dream. Thank you, Lordi.

So, the cast of Warcraft won the Eurovision this year! That's quite a feat. Usually it's really bad pop.

I was just looking at the full list of winners over the years. Anybody know how Celine Dion got to represent Ireland? It seems a bit of a stretch.

I love it! Sounds like a mix between KISS and White Zombie. Two of my all time favs! You rock Phronk!

I saw this somewhere before and thought it was a joke.

I only watched the first video and that was enough for me. However, I did enjoy the seemingly endless supply of monster/religious puns. You never fail to impress!

Salem: According my source (Wikipedia), Celine Dion represented Switzerland. Still...WTF?

Indy: Yeah, they seem like the ultimate in the evolution of rock bands who wear costumes. Costumes pretty much always rule.

Jason: Shut up you. This is dead serious.

Sarah: You're missing out by skipping over the rest. They're sacrilicious.

Shora: Woo! Thanks for that link. Now I can make an avatar of myself, just like...

Sachz: Long time no see. Yeah...I doubt our women would let us hang up Lordi posters in our rooms nowadays. :(

I love this! I can't believe that a decent sounding group finally won the Eurovision Song Contest, I usually hate the type of music that wins. I love their costumes and vidoes too :)

Their costumes are the SHIT, man.

your judgemental aunt said...

Hope it's OK...they are for sure not my new favorite band.

The third video reminds me of that movie "Hell Raiser" when pinhead walks into the club and he starts killing people---by throwing cd's at everyone's throat. It was an awful scene.

I am a horror movie junkie, and these videos were morbidly fascinating!

Can a Christian like this type of entertainment? (heh)

I think their costumes are fun. I'm sure they'll grow out of their need for them soon enough and just let their music say it all. Perhaps its an improvement on their natural looks :)
