A mystery of a song, but very Denki Groove. Seven full minutes of seemingly meaningless lyrics, sound effects, and a fun beat. 2000’s VOXXX is generally a pretty good album, even if it’s a bit more on the experimental side compared to some of the band’s other albums (save for “Nothing’s Gonna Change,” there’s a dearth of real pop singles).
There are rumors on the internet that this song was banned from radio airplay in Japan due to “causing unease in listeners,” but I can’t substantiate this claim. Fun to think it might be true, but also I don’t know who in their right mind would play this song in the first place.
