Japanese group Babymetal has been described as an “adorable apocalypse,” and I’ll be darned if that’s not just what they are. This week coverage was everywhere from Gawker to USA Today. It’s now been viewed over 2.8 million times.
The break out week also saw their self titled album hit the top of the iTunes Metal chart in the US (34 overall), UK, Canada and beyond. In the US, it also topped the Rock album chart. It got to No.20 on Billboard “Heatseekers Albums” chart.
That song, called “Give Me Chocolate,” includes such lyrics as “I can have a bit of chocolate, can’t I? But my weight worries me a bit these days. However, chocolate.”
