Lordi ROCK to much,

I as with so many people are glad they turned Eurovision on its herad and then kicked it in the face(with those platforms:-)). They rock, and i have some ablums (Which i owned before Eurovision.)

The song was really lame, but the music video rocked, pretty much. All I could think of was me when I saw that girl getting pushed around.

Lordi are cheese-tastic, but they`ve grown on me.

I`m glad they kicked Eurovision in the balls with the better side of music.

I`ve got to admit, it was nice to see Finland win Eurovision with this great song, and they won BECAUSE it was a good song and good showmanship etc instead of the common political voting.

And yes, I now love Lordi too. Thank you Eurovision.

Listen little one.. don`t editorialize on me.. I know from my extensive musical studies at a reputable university here in the states, that there isn`t a worthy American Conductor who could carry a baton before a symphony over there.. because of your European snobbery.. and let`s see.. you`re some dumbass kid, arent you?...

even though we are every bit as good and capable.. You aren`t one damn bit different then us You are classical snobs.. we are contemporary truth sayers..

One finger points at me.. three point back at you

H0ax dude, Some neighbouring countries do stick to each other: For example: Lithuania/Latvia/Estonia and Finland/Sweden/Norway/Denmark also sometimes, at least they give pitty points even though the song would suck..like back in the days when Finland would get 4 points in total, 3 from Sweden one from Norway. Still this year the winning factor was not based on neighbouring countries just voting on each other for the sake of being neighbours. They won with over 40 points! And to end it all I think Lordi sucks, but quite frankly very little other candidates for winning. (maybe Swe or Romania)

Im from the UK and i have to say this years entry sucked, Now of the big europeon countrys have a change anymore, part from this year it was slights different but again all there stupid scattered countrys were still near the top.

Guinstar - I admit I worded that wrong. What I meant was that people have seemed to put GWAR on some kind of pedestal and Lordi have to be ripping them off. Lordi`s look bmay be inspired from GWAR, but the songs are nowhere near the same. It`s my opinion that Lori are more metal in their music - GWAR are more metal in terms of their look and the way they act. Compare Blood Red Sandman with Penguin attack. Blood Red Sandman: monster metal song. Penguin Attack: Friggin` penguins!
Don`t get me wrong, GWAR are funky, but they stiek as me as the kind of band that is deliberately spoofing the monster metal genre by doing what they do. Lordi use their image to enahnce the kind of songs they want to create.

Sorry about the long posts. I`ve had a crud load of coffee and the fingers won`t stop typing!

thecasper... you got the wrong guy buddy, I didn`t say those things. *shrug*. All I said was that I could take them satirically because of how they look and because of their lyrics.

I do appreciate them though, and hell, I`d rock out to their music over GWAR anyday.
GWAR... *shudder*.

I really don`t see what a lot of people`s problems are with Lordi. You day that "they suck" and all the rest, but who the hell else would you pick to win Eurovision? Daz Sampson?! Christ, now THAT sucked! (and I`m from the UK, so there`s no national pride thing going on here).
I agree with noiz and thecasper on this. Lordi is the ONLY hard rock/metal band of its kind in Europe (at least that`s any good anyway) I think it`s cool that this band actually has a theme that they revolve around. And for people that keep on about how that was cool 20 years ago but not now.... Lordi model themselves on the kind of monster movies that went on 20 years ago! Who cares if Lordi saw GWAR and thought (you know, we should do that)? Besides, whoever says that GWAR is metal should be strung up. Rob Zomie I agree is awesome, but he just put a bit of makeup on (a la KISS) rather than suit himself up with horns and 3 ft friggin monster boots and big ass wings! Different league.
Right, ran

Damn americans.... you all think that you are way better then us in everything. Lordi = Metal , no not death or trash or doom or black. Just plain, old school heavy metal like in the 80`s. Songs that keep buzzing in your head. I wonder what the situation would be here when america won the contest.... but oohh wait it is EUROPEAN. Yeah just heard on the news that some american want`s to do the same contest in the states... what ya call a ripp-off. Well not gonna spend anymore breath on this subject. It is cool they won. If you don`t like `m too bad. If you`re a meatal fan , drating support them, we have a hard time already. If you listen to house/trance and all that other electronic computer made poo. just shut up.

Europe loves metal !!

Hmmm, I can take these guys as satirical Hard Rock (MAYBE metal... no... not even "maybe"). I actually did like Blood Red Sandman, though the fact that they think they`re badass and end up killing/converting all the "non-believers" is good for a chuckle. If I saw them in a crappy contest, I`d let them have the crappy trophy.

Lordi is equal to Metal, as Army of Darkness is equal to Horror.

I think it`s all about comparison. Lordi was clearly the most original of the lot. Even the worst rock songs still rule over every silly happy-go-lucky pop singer who thinks they`ll win if their boobs are the biggest. :P

I really thought hell would freeze over before we would even come close to winning. But guess not, thanks to Lordi. This freaking rules. :D See you in Helsinki in 2007!

" A norwegian newspaper claimed that WoW-players voted the song to victory."

god i hope that`s not true...
well i did hear that people are saying it was rigged to stop Finland quitting the contest, seeing as they nearly always come last. The bosses feared other countries would follow. Doubt it`s true though, people just trying to take the well-earned victory away from them!

eurovision is very political though, isn`t it? in some eastern european countries it`s practically life or death stuff. death by terrible songs, presumably ;) and yes the turkish one was terrible, wasn`t it!

The costumes were not the only reason they won. They won because they were different had a good song and a perfect show. They were the best compared to blonde duble D-cup halve naked women on the stage.

Isn`t the point of Eurovision to be lame? What has Eurovision had that hasn`t been so encrusted with cheese it may aswell be part of the moon? I think Lordi deserved to win that, they are the most rocking act to ever have come out of Eurovision. I bought their album "The Monster Show" about 6 months back after seeing the video for Blood Red Sandman (the good folks at muchosucko were slandering it, so I decided to check it out). I thought it was awesome that they were in the competition.

GO LORDI! ROCK ON!
