I really like Die Antwoord. I don't if it's because some of their music is so catchy, or because it's so funny, or because Yo-Landi gives me the weirdest boner ever. I admire them for being one group that truly doesn't give a fuck. Their previous group MaxNormal.TV broke up just as they started to become popular. Absolutely no one wanted or understood Zef or Afrikaans rap. They also broke off their relationship with Intrerscope late last year to release under their own label. Yet somehow the internet took notice and they have fans all over the world.

They just released their new album, Ten$ion. Here's the vid for the lead single. DJ Hi-Tek's part seems out of place, but it's separate in the album. See if you can recognized where all his quotes come from without googling.:

Their other new vid, I Fink U Freeky:

And my favorite video they've made, Evil Boy:

The monster in the video is the Tokoloshe, which as far as I can tell is some African version of the Chupacabra, only instead of mutilating people it goes around raping people with it's massive penis.

I can't think of any reason why I normally would, but ever since watching that Vice piece on them I've been somewhat of a fan. Their sound is really cool.

New video out, Baby's on Fire:


Yo-Landi is so hot when she says "What evah" at the table. Also when she dances, also whenever shes on camera.

Die Antwoord is the coolest music group out right now.

Yo-Landi circa 2004, about 20 years old, before Die Antwoord:

I like her. I really like "Baby's On Fire", but listening to the album yesterday, the songs where the guy are featured aren't nearly as entertaining.
