Babymetal Is Something Else Again

The Internet can indeed be a wonderful place, in that it can open your eyes - and ears - to all sorts of things you might otherwise have been unaware of. Case in point is Babymetal. Babymetal is a Japanese group fusing Heavy Metal and Idol music - Idol is a popular Japanese trend featuring cute, "manufactured" pop groups (think of the Monkees from the 1960's as a baby boomer example, or New Kids On The Block as a later one). 

I was all set to moan about how this made me feel old, but oddly enough it doesn't. I won't say I like it, but I don't hate it. It's kinda silly and playful, and, well, not horrible. Weird, but not really horrible...
