Sakura Gakuin is a Japanese girl group dress in school girl uniforms and sing sugary pop songs. But, because Japan always likes to keep it weird, some of the young ladies from Sakura Gakuin are also involved in a side project, Baby Metal, in which those syrupy lyrics are backed by a thrash metal band.

This would be the equivalent of Demi Lovato fronting Anthrax. Or something like that. Enjoy the odd musical hybrid below. (WARNING: Turn your speakers down if you're not a fan of piercing metal.)
