Hell yeah! If that is not a great victory for hard rock/metal, I don't know what is. No, you're not hallucinating, Finnish metal monsters Lordi won the formatted Eurovision contest (known for its sloppy poppish radio tunes) HANDS DOWN!

They were 44 points ahead Russia (the mullet singer) and gave a fresh new start to the oh-so-boring Eurovision stuff.

We wish to congratulate the winners from the depths of our hearts. LONG LIVE METAL

Hey its Eurovision, I dont like Lordi but then again, Eurovision isnt going to allow a band like Catamenia, Impaled Nazarene, Sonata Artica or probably even COB to play, it just wouldnt suite...

Congrats to Finland

i wasnt suprised one bit... all the other countries were singing the same crap.. they all had similar songs... the reason why lordi one... in my opinion was because they were so much different than the other countries...

way to go finland

gratz Finland!

I agree. This could be a new age for heavy metal, it might sound weird but there is a possibility. It is an opportunity for some ****** to realise that heavy metal is a special kind of music and deserves a little more. Here in Greece we have the more fanatic metal audience in Southern Europe. That's why we gave a 12 and imagine that we don't have a heavy metal radio station! I hope after this event something will happen.
Congratulations Finland!:beer:

I am very glad that Lordi won Eurovision conttest. I was always with them and I was sure that the world will finaly hear about them. And now it's true. All the best to LORDI!!!

Hell Yeah! It was about time Finland had success in Eurovision... and when we did it, we did it good! The first time I didn't feel embarrassed while watching the contest. The show was simply the best. Thanks Lordi!!

And to those hardcore metallists... don't take Lordi too seriously. Yes, the music is very stereotypical 80's glam rock (in a good sense), but the band is also about havin' fun, and that's the most important thing in Lordi. A big victory for hard rock nonetheless.

I actually saw almost the whole thing at a party this year. Normally I don't like Lordi very much but among those other songs it sounded like the best music ever.

Finland winning with Lordi is in any case better than the swedish contestant, a christian fundamentalist woman far more scary than any monster, winning. And it was fun hearing all the swedish Eurovision "experts" trying to explain it.

it was hilarious i was at my friends pub, and there was a punk thing going on, we watched all the regulars in the pub being shocked by lordi and looking out the window to be shocked again!

i can't believe this shit. obviously most of the votes were just beacuse of their appearance, and in my opninion they didn't even play very well. the participation was fun, yet they should not have won it. what we'll get now is either a lot of lordi-like bands in the media, or mainstreamers wearing monstersuits

Lordi rock! I'm from Northern Ireland in the good ol' UK and i was so glad to hear Lordi won! Altho they cut out the best bit of that song from the album version lol and the solo at the end!! aaahh who cares, Lordi won...long live Metal!!
Cthulu Corpse - 24.05.2006 at 00:48  
It was a good show but the original is better than live. Its a good song. Think this is great for all metal. Hope there will be more metalbands in the contest in the next ones to. I was very suprised that they won but i really enjoyed it Gratulations to Finland!

He was Pasi Rantanen of Finnish power metal band Thunderstone as backing vocalist. That corpsepaint was probably more like Kiss mask. If you saw those papers members of Lordi were holding, there was written "Kiss Army Finland" to Pasi´s paper.

Yes, one of my friends grilled me about that later... Sorry, my mistake. =)

Achmeazorg, if you mean by "play" as really playing the instruments, no. In Eurovisions the music comes playback and only singing is "live". They don't have time to hook all the instruments and do sound check in those 30 seconds between performances. The music sounded everytime identical, except for vocals of course. When you go to real live gig you can except even a little variation and improvisation.
DLMokoma - 29.05.2006 at 22:27  
Hard Rock Hallelujah is a bit boring song if you ask me and the singing could have done alot better. But still I'm glad that they won, because 99% of Eurovision songs have been pure crap so far. Okay, and maybe because I'm from Finland too.

I'm not from Finland but for the first time in my life, i trully like to watch a European music contest! Portugal sends some hores that shake their asses but really bad music :\ So this year I really voted for Lordi! I didnt knew the band but their music is from far the best one from the European contest this year so congrats and keep bringing metal to those contests!
