Christians vs Lordi

From here

Finnish heavy metal group Lordi is one of several playing at a Wellington Easter concert that has upset a pentacostal church.

The band, whose five members dress in elaborate costumes as monsters and demons, won the Eurovision song contest last year.

The winning song, Hard Rock Hallelujah, includes the lyrics “I got horns on my head, my fangs are sharp and my eyes are red” – and prompted Finland’s religious leaders to warn that the band could inspire devil worship.

Okay. Right.

You know when The Wiggles put on little tricorne hats and sashes and then they wave little plastic sabers around while saying “Arrr!” so as to pretend to be pirates?

That’s both more Heavy Metal AND more Satanic than anything Lordi have ever done, ever.

Just sayin’ is all.


  1. Well, the Wiggles were a death-metal band before they discovered that playing “It’s A Wiggly Wiggly World” to 5-year-olds was a LOT more lucrative 🙂

  2. Hell yeah — The Wiggles are way more scary than Lordi. A bunch of grown men dressed like 60s Star Trek Extras — and they all have Spock’s haircut…

  3. Ptyaa the story of Jesus is so positive.

    A guy killed slowely and painfully by the state for censorship reasons, a lesson well learned I grant you but a positive story I disagree.

  4. I had not heard of this band “Lordi” until now.. I just went and watched said “Hard Rock Hallelujah” on youtube.

    I had to stop it because it was actively embarrassing. At first I thought they were taking the piss of metal… then the horrible realisation began to set in that no, they were taking this seriously.

    Oh god.

    Still they will never be as man and rock as Man-o-war and their metal anthem : Warriors of the world united.

    “We’re here to fight for all of you, now swaer the blood upon your steel, will never dry! As we fight for all that is to rock, under a metal sky!!!!”

    *wipes a tear*

  5. I don’t have anything to say. Just wanted to use the icon.

  6. Would it be embarrasing to admit we own the Lordi CD and DVD from after the eurovision contest last year?

  7. See I don’t get it – if they don’t like the music, they don’t need to listen or go and see them.
    Being all up in arms about it just gives Lordi more advertising!
