The Death Metal Version of the Chocobo Theme Has Lyrics, But That’s Not the Weird Part

The weird part is that this song — again, a death metal version of Final Fantasy‘s perennially favorite “Chocobo Theme” — is official. It’s part of the upcoming Final Fantasy XIII-2 soundtrack, as reported by eagle-eared Topless Roboteer Daniel K.


?HOLY FUCKING SHIT. I can’t decide if “Crazy Chocobo,” as it’s called, is the most awesome thing ever, or the most awful thing ever. On the one hand, it’s a death metal cover of the Chocobo theme which includes the lyrics, and I quote, “Saddle up if you think you can ride in this rodeo / Are we in hell? I don’t know…” in all earnestness. On the other hand, it’s from a fucking Final Fantasy XIII game. I don’t know. I just don’t know. I’m so confused.
