Tegan and Sara’s Oscar-nominated track from The Lego Movie is cute, bubbly, and very upbeat. At least it was.

Norwegian musician Leo Moracchioli of Frog Leap Studios has released an ear-splicing metal cover of “Everything Is Awesome,” the happy-go-lucky song that Emmet and the other LEGO city characters love to jam to before, during, and after work. Not sure if Emmet would be able to have a cutesy morning routine to this version, but he could definitely annoy the neighbors.

Moracchioli gives tons of popular songs the metal treatment, like “Royals” by Lorde and “Cheap Thrills” by Sia, but “Everything Is Awesome” definitely takes the cake as one of his most fun metal renditions. Check the video out below, and prepare to be blown away by the awesome.

I tried to like it, but I can’t. I’ll never get the appeal of metal, and especially of metal covers. I have a ton of friends who love the Marilyn Manson’s covers of “Sweet Dreams” and “Tainted Love” or the Disturbed cover of “Land of Confusion”, and they are baffled when I tell them I like the originals much better. (I’ll give that to Disturbed, though, the music video is pretty cool)
