Well, you gave it a shot...!
Maxx, I must have seen your link before, because I know that about that time I saw Baby Metal. Thought it was cool, but heard a story in NPR the other day and pulled it up again. Love it...such a crazy mashup.
Sounds like what happened to me when I first heard about them. Someone posted a link to Gimme Chocolate on Facebook. I watched it and thought it was interesting, but nothing amazing. This was back in very late February-very early March. I didn't think much about it over the next couple weeks, but when I was jumping around one night watching various vids on YouTube, it popped up in one of the sidebar lists, so I watched it again. Liked it a *lot* more, and from there, spent the next hour or two watching all their other stuff on YT, including subbed interviews with the girls. Looked 'em up on Wiki, then did a Google search for Babymetal-related stories.
They're now my favorite "new" group.
