Japan's creation: "Baby Metal..." yay, nay, or somewhere in between?

Alright my fellow big G's, I present to you baby metal. What do you think of it? It is actually quite big in Japan from what I know of it.

Ladybaby -- "Nippon Manju"

Oh...
and in case you were wondering how to do the dance:

Oh, by the way, the man in it goes by "Ladybeard," and he is the bearded crossdressing persona of Australian male professional wrestler Rick Magarey.

  • It's cute, but I don't think it has any musical contributions. It's more of an entertainment genre than anything.

    I also read an article about what it was like for the kids in these bands and it was a little disturbing. Like the kids are exposed to all this really dark imagery and intense fandom and it can be really difficult for the kids and their parents to deal with.

  • I love the first video with that dude in it, cracks me up every time. Some of the songs are kind of catchy, I'm not surprised if a lot of people would hate it though.

    The first band I heard that did it is called, "BabyMetal."

  • It's silly but they are having fun so they might as well if they enjoy it! The first one seems like a weird tourism video like "Please come to Japan look how fun everything is!!!"
    It reminded me of the travel videos they make for my province, this is for my city and the mountains like an hour and a half drive away from my home city. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ThFCg0tBDck

  • Very crappy to be honest. Nothing metal about it.
    They've taken some metal traits and ruined them completely.

  • Never heard of it till now. It's Terrible. It makes my ears bleed. I'm not really a huge metal fan i stick to alternative or post-hardcore but i do listen to some metal bands so i can sort of tell if it's good or not for a "metal" band. Though, i think most people can tell how shitty this is no matter the genres they tend to listen to 😂
