Oh, I think I know what you mean! Waltari had one
minor hit in Holland, of the top of my head I would
say it was about 8 years ago? Starts with the women
singers (sort of like hey da dee da ya hey da dee da
ya) and then kicks in with metal guitars and a sort of
ska-rythym as well.

I never knew that they were a band in their own right
and will certainly keep an eye open out for them.
