[oh, lordi!]

Hard Rock Hallelujah (Audio | Video) by Lordi

The Eurovision Song Contest is usually an ABBAesque cheesefest, but this year's winners are different. Still hopelessly cheesy, yes, but different. Taking a page from GWAR, Lordi — the most popular thing to come out of Finland since Nokia — is a metal band that only appears in ridiculous monster constumes and that indulges in parodic Satanic lyrics. From their contest-winning anthem "Rock and Roll Hallelujah":
On the day of Rockoning
It's who dares, wins
You will see the jokers soon'll be the new kings
Apparently the day of Rockoning has come, and these jokers reign supreme. In Europe, anyway.
