So what do you get when you combine sick jams about ninjas, sung by self identified Zef trio (South african slang for white trash) and the miracle of internet? How about a sick viral phenomenon that caused Hetzner, a South African hosting provider, to disable their hosting account following massive bandwidth overage. Name of the phenom: Die Antwoord.

This South African trio has emerged on the scene in 2009. While slightly rough around the edges to say the least, once you get past the mildly morbid exterior, there is a raw talents that challenges most contemporary standards of the music industry.

If you think Gaga extravaganza is the pinnacle of modern artistic expression, hang up your coca-cola hair curlers and give these guys a gander. You will be gladly surprised to what frontiers Internet is taking the music industry.
