YLVIS - The Fox FINALLY comes to iTunes in the U.S... and goes Metal!

Written by

If you're not one of the 32,283,281 people that have viewed "The Fox" by YLVIS on YouTube, then I ask: What are you waiting for? For those that have witnessed the song and video in all of it's majesty, you'll be happy to know the the song has just arrived on iTunes (go there, buy it now and The Rock Father will make a few pennies on the deal!) so you can bump it in the car, the boat, the woods, or wherever your mobile music device may roam. If you've been left out of the YLVIS craze, quite simply: they're like THE LONELY ISLAND, but Norwegian. Yes, the land that brought us Black Metal masters like BURZUM, GORGOROTH, IMMORTAL and EMPEROR, has now given the world a dose of glorious pop-comedy.

YLVIS - The Fox

The cover versions of "The Fox" are igniting YouTube like a Norwegian Black Metal Church Burning much like "The Harlem Shake" and "Gangnam Style" before it (I even considered doing one), but thus far one stands in front of the pack... a METAL version by the user calling themselves "Metal Guitar Stuff." Check it out...

And, if you think that YLVIS is a one-trick pony, you're wrong. Check out a couple prior masterpieces below...

YLVIS is Norwegian for "Your New Lords and Masters."
