I have been aware of the runaway success of Japanese act Babymetal for some time (I have seen the magazine covers etc). One of their songs, “Gimme Chocolate!!” has over 68,000,000 hits on YouTube, and they have live releases captured at the Budokan in Tokyo and Wembley in London. In fact, they just put out “Live At Wembley” in time for Christmas not long ago. Word is that no other act ever sold more merchandise at Wembley than Babymetal. As a phenomenon, I kind of like that crazy mix. I was finally won over today when I saw a clip of them performing with Rob Halford from US television 2016. It is what it is and I actually like it.
