Put your middle fingers up
Take a shot, throw it up and don't stop
I'm, I'm, I'm living that life on the dark side

Every psycho in the scene
Hands up and follow me saying (hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo)
Empire of the freaks, all drinks on me

Just another night in my pitch black paradise
Don't wanna cry, so I gotta get paralyzed
My body is my weapon, so I keep it loaded
'Til I'm all over the place like my head exploded
Don't waste your prayers, they can't save us
Lifestyles of the sick and dangerous

Put your middle fingers up
Take a shot, throw it up and don't stop
I'm, I'm, I'm living that life on the dark side
Likе the 27 Club, headshot
We don't wanna grow up
I'm, I'm, I'm living that lifе on the dark side
Life on the dark side

Every psycho in the scene
Hands up and follow me saying (hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo)
Empire of the freaks, all drinks on me

I'm in a cave of man-made misery
Digging a grave for myself and my enemies
Of all the dark things that keep me wasted
You're the sweetest I've ever tasted

Put your middle fingers up
Take a shot, throw it up and don't stop
I'm, I'm, I'm living that life on the dark side
Like the 27 Club, headshot
We don't wanna grow up
I'm, I'm, I'm living that life on the dark side
Life on the dark side

Just another night in my pitch black paradise
Don't wanna cry so I gotta get paralyzed
Don't waste your prayers, they can't save us
Lifestyles of the sick and dangerous

Put your middle fingers up
Take a shot, throw it up and don't stop
I'm, I'm, I'm living that life on the dark side
Like the 27 Club, headshot
We don't wanna grow up
I'm, I'm, I'm living that life on the dark side
Life on the dark side

Neither Hatari nor AWS are „rock“, „metal“ or „new metal“ but do we really want to talk about sub-genres when even the main genre is so rarely represented in Eurovision?
I am a Metal fan too (true Metal ;)) but I am speaking Eurovision here so I just call it rock or metal. 😄

I don't understand the comparison between Dark Side and Hatari either, the only band Dark Side reminds me of in ESC is Manga from Turkey, both songs have elements of Rock, Pop and Rap

Personally, I think that "Dark Side" is the right choice for Eurovision and I can totally see them perform very well and being ranked #13 or higher in the end but I just fell in love with "Kelle mä soitan" again. I honestly think it's one of the most beautiful ballads I have ever encountered in any national finals. Even though I can't understand a single word, it totally moves me and makes me feel for her. The pre-chorus is absolutely beautiful, the chorus is so powerful - I love the whole production and how pure and pristine and powerful her voice sound.

WHAT. A. SONG.

Blind Channel's band members are not allowed to put their middle fingers up during their show:cry:.

At least they didn't ask them to change their lyrics. At the end of the day, I guess ESC is still considered a family-friendly show.

To be fair for middle finger, it is just a finger.

But not in the context of the song, isn't it? And we all know what is the underlying meaning of putting up your middle fingers.
So I believe they should have known better when they decide to submit a song like this.

EBU needs to come to 2020s with ESC rules.

expected...Will they raise up just hands then ?

I don't know.

To be honest, they don't have to and I don't see there is anything wrong trying to keep things family-friendly considering majority of the audience will be watching with their families. It's EBU's show, they make the rules. If the artist/delegation is unhappy with the rules, either they suck it up and abide to them or they can jolly well don't participate in the show. It's just as simple as that.

What is so wrong to show middle finger? It is just a finger despite its meaning;).

I don't like it. Not digging this style of rock (garage/industrial, whatever it is).
