Heavy metal rock for Finland in ESC

  octal 09:43 21 May 2006

I wonder if this is a wake up call to Eurovision Song Contest that people are getting fed up with the usual mix of pansies, posies and puppy dog tails we have been getting over the years. I think it was brave of Finland to attempt to enter such a song, more power to their elbow and long may it continue.

Great video by the way.

This is the best thing that has happened to Eurovision in my lifetime, and I'm nearly 42!

Good looking people these Finns. No wonder they have gone nuclear!!!

Long live R n R - out with the pap.

Let's resurrect Iron Maiden for Englands' entry next year :-)

...Best thing I've seen in *music* for a while!

Mr Mistoffelees...
I used to be nearly 42, quite a few years ago now. And I second what you say!

left 42 behind a while ago and I think it was a great wake-up call for Eurovision!

Very good result...

Not really heavy metal though - except for the outfits.

Still makes a refreshing change :o)

Not to do them down but for most metal fans Lordi are considered a joke band in the same vain as Gwar,

Just google a picture of them to see what i mean,

I do think that more metal bands should enter euro vision but apart from england i cant think of any in europe.
