The Finnish press said it well, "Hell HAS frozen over, Finland have won!" Yes, "Hard Rock Hallelujah" is about as far from your typical Eurovision winner as you can get. OK, so it's very novelty - particularly with the masks the band wear - but only in the way that Slipknot are novelty really. Personally, I rank this as having a significantly better tune than Slipknot, and in its own way it's strangely likeable. Maybe more Spinal Tap than Slipknot I guess, and rather hard to decide whether I like it or not.
