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

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.

  • 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 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.

  • Definitely a pop phenomenon, no way will that make any headway in the metal world - MIght appeal to far eastern pop fans but outside that can't see it happening - Would not be my particular genre.

    • I am inclined to agree with you-- I very much doubt something like this would gain significant traction in the west.

  • "Nay (I don't like it. 変ねえ… )" But I'd fuck some of those bitches until I had ED over ther ein Japan >_<

    • (The girls in the video are 14 and 17 at the time lol)

    • LMAO I should have said (I thought it was already well known by now that I have a thing for Asian girls ESP Japs) that goes for normal "Jap" girls not necessarily any girl/s in that video (I didn't even watch the video skimmed through it).

  • Uh oh, 100% weaabo. 😨😱

    As for real Japanese baby metal, not really my thang...

    • Lol I don't listen to them or anything. I just stumbled upon and was like "wtf is this 😂"

  • 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

  • Nay, I don't like it. As a longtime metalhead, I only like ass-kicking metal and I hate all cute things.

    Babymetal is more of a brand than a band and most of their fans are anime otaku, emos, scene kids, etc. I'd say they belong with other less aggressive rock bands like the Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Paramore, Bring Me the Horizon, Black Veil Brides, etc.

  • i think it could be improved. When the girls 'sing' to death metal music, it's neat. But when they try to 'rap' it sounds kind of silly..

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

    By Maximum The Harmone, now, they do metal well. But these kids... Ugh. What can I say? Japan has some awesome artistes, I love Scandal, and oh yeah. You should listen to Samurai Champloos soundtracks too, pretty amazing depth for anime, these folks.

  • 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 😂
