“The Final Countdown”-possibly the worst cover you might ever hear.

August 29, 2008

We posted a band from Norway’s rockabilly cover of Europe’s The Final Countdown earlier this month. Now, we present possibly the worst cover, of a bad song to begin with, ever. No idea of who this band is or where they’re playing. You must watch all of it. It’s hypnotically bad. The famous synthesizer part sounds like it’s played on a Fisher Price “My First Keyboard.” Seriously, watch the whole thing. You’ll thank me.

Norway’s Twang Gang cover Europe’s “The Final Countdown”

August 16, 2008

About 10 yrs. ago I was listening to the radio at work. I didn’t hear the prize, but I noticed that the DJ was playing their daily “name that song and we’ll give you stuff” game so my ears perked up. The song played was Europe’s “The Final Countdown.” I phoned in and won. What’s not great about winning a radio contest? When the prize is 2 tickets to a Renaissance Fair..that’s when it’s not great. Oh, also, “The Final Countdown” is a crappy song unless you like your hair metal with lots of synthesizers.

Anyway, here’s a rockabilly band from Norway, Twang Gang, with their rendition of “The Final Countdown.”

Ok, ok…..I’m sure some of you have fond memories of the original song. Here it is then.

Austrian monster-“”I could have killed them and then sealed the place with concrete…I have not been treated fairly, it has all been one-sided.”

Yeah, the Austrian man who imprisoned his daughter in a hidden cellar, then repeatedly raped her and fathered 7 children with her, also imprisoning the ones that survived, claims he’s not getting a fair shake. Poor bastard. This guy is disgusting. He needs to quickly find a psychologist to give him some sort of diagnosis he can use at his trial. Apparently, there’s another “side” to the story explaining his henous actions. I’m surprised he’s Austrian, his reasoning sounds far more like something you’d hear over here in the U.S.

“Kerstin would not be alive today if it wasn’t for me,” he said in a statement issued by his lawyer. “I have made sure that she got to a hospital.

“I could have killed all of them. No one would have ever known about it.

A bullet is too good for him. More here.
