Specifically not, but I can ridicule something and enjoy it at the same time.
For example I find Manowar utterly ridiculous but they're loads of fun to listen to despite of that.

THIS!

Kings of Metal!

Van Canto is another prime example of "Holy shit this is so stupid" but it's fun as heck, especially when they do Manowar:

Anyone listen to the new Megadeth album?  Kiko Loureiro is one of my favorite guitarists and I'm really curious about his performance on the album.

God I love folk metal. Thanks, did not know of them!

The XM channel has been pumping it hard lately, I've probably heard the whole album by now. I've liked most of it, particularly the guitar work. The album has a sort of unnervingly clean and produced feel, but most of the songs I've heard were cool.

funny you should say that, I've been a bit *bleh* about it lately, but just the other day I heard what's probably going to be one of the top albums of the year. everyone I've shared it with seems really impressed by them, the whole album is really wonderful selection of tracks, too (this is coming from not only not an-album-person but someone who is known to chop 3 minutes out of a 5 minute song :P

If you know Otyg and Lumsk you'll have an idea of what to expect, but at the same time it's such a fresh feeling, sure, it's very Scandinavian, but there's something very unique about the acoustic work, and after a year of what I consider largely stale album releases making me worry about the genre's future. I really can't fault anything on this: production, vocal choice, vocalist, orchestration, range of instruments. everything is just so on point.

Ouch, kicking in my belly

Last year I heard the singing lark
Yes, yes, the singing lark
Yes, the singing lark

This year I learned the result of love
Ouch, ouch, the result of love
Ouch, the result of love

Last year I went with boys at the party
Yes, yes, with the boys at the party
Yes, with the boys at the party

This year I sit here and soothe the baby
Ouch, ouch, and soothe the baby
Ouch, and soothe the baby

Last year I went with lords and barons
Yes, yes, with lords and barons
Yes, with the lords and barons

This year I watch the chickens and turkeys
Ouch, ouch, chickens and turkeys
Ouch, chickens and turkeys

Last year I went with the gents in the pasture
Yes, yes, with the gents in the pasture
Yes, with the gents in the pasture

This year I have something kicking in my belly

If you want something else translated from Sweden, just ask. I'm even better than GoogleTranslate.
