Not really my type of music...though, I have a slight bias for Poets of the Fall (which is funny, because they're primarily a rock band), mostly because they composed Alan Wake's metal songs.

So, to summarize, this is done by Finnish rock band Poets of the Fall, playing under the false band name Old Gods of Asgard, a metal band, and has lyrics playing a giant "screw you" to the main villain of the game. And it's is played as you're holding off waves of semi-Lovecraftian enemies on a band stage. Seriously, words fail to capture how amazing the sequence is (and it really disappoints me how low key Alan Wake has ended up with many audiences - it's a terrific game and this is one of the best moments in any game).

Anyways, just the song, right?
