Worst Cover Ever

"The Final Countdown" always sucked. Even when it was a brand new release I never fell for it's cheesy Emerson, Lake & Palmer pomposity and melodramatic lyricism (which, to be fair, was only mildly worse than Nena's "99 Luftballons"). It seems like justice, though, when a band as horrible as Europe is tribut-ized (my word) by a band that make The Kids Of Widney High sound like Anthrax.
Please watch. You will not regret it.

Hi Gordon... Upon first viewing this video I could only think of the horror that was attacking my ears. The second time around though it occured to me that this, sadly, has happened to songs much worse than 'The Final Countdown'. But maybe this is the songs' just desserts. If you are going to produce mediocre songs it is inevitable that even worse European cover bands will find, love, and cover them.

Wow. That's about all I can say. Although, I was expecting Gob from Arrested Development to jump up with a fan and some cards.
