Stories are all over the news about how the Finns are reaching out in pride to their Eurovision winning latex-wearing monster band, Lordi. Even one report that there will be Lordi stamps soon.
Lordi, the leader of Lordi, has things in perspective when he says “Being a hero is easy: you just have to win the Eurovision Song Contest, apparently. Until a few weeks ago the whole nation was against us totally â€” they did not want us to represent Finland. Now all the magazines in Finland are printing Lordi masks for children. Thereâ€™s not much logic going on inside. But letâ€™s face it, people are stupid.” (quoted from a story by Dan Bilefsky in the International Herald Tribune)
Speaking of stupid, the new Lordi song “Who’s Your Daddy?” makes their “Hard Rock Halelujah” sound like a complex ELO song with Bob Dylan lyrics. The video is a sex change on the oppression of Goths. This time a letter jacket wearing boy band-ish lad gets the Lordi abuse instead of cheerleaders. But Lordi had much more budget to spend on fireworks and sparklers this time out. And it all takes place in a roller disco!
Too good to pass up! Especially good in this live version but Lordi in the daytime means no fireworks and much less set. A plus is that you can see the costumes and those funky boots better.
