Everyone WQHTS US...

both in Finland and Europe.

If you're in the neighborhood,

come and see us play.

You won't be disappointed. Ever.

We'll always be

one of the best in Finland.

At least we think so. Flight, guys?

- That's right.

We're number one.

Let's hope

we stay at the top of the charts.

Pertti, we havent even

recorded anything yet!

Toni, time to go onstage.

Flush the toilet

and wash your hands.

I've been to the toilet and...

- Without washing hands.

Now Pertti Kurikka's Name Day

will play!

Alright. Let's go.

My shirt says "God dammit!"

You don't listen to me.

You don't understand me.

That's where my competition starts.

Some pretty kick-ass bands

will play here tonight, such as...

Pertti Kurikka's Name Day!

Give it up for

Pertti Kurikka's Name Day!

This is great!

I need a little respect

and equality in my life

I need a little respect

and dignity in my life


Pertti, just one chorus.

- I'm trying my best.

I'll shout "intro" after the chorus,

so you'll know.

Let's just move on.

I need a little respect

and equality in my life

I need a little respect

and dignity in my life

No. Too late.

- Look at my fingers.

You see one or five?

There's just one chorus. One!

Not five.

- I'm sorry

I think I've had enough.

That's enough.

- A break.

Why can't I get it?

Pertti, you'll get it.

I'll count to four.

You'll get the hang of it.

- I get it.

Don't cry, big boy.

- I'm not crying.

This isn't about crying.

This is about punk.

This is about honor

and rock 'n' roll.

I didn't cry


when you write riffs for songs,...

don't write such difficult ones.

Don't write such difficult ones.

Write easy ones.

- I try my best.

It's Friday March 11th.

Writing a diary

is very important to me because...

I can release my a-a-anger...

into my diary.

It helps me if I have...

a b-b-b-bad day

I'll write in my diary

that Pertti is a shithead...

and that Pertti is an a**hole...

and that Pertti is a f*ggot

and a sh*t goddamn a**hole.

Pertti will be stabbed.

Pertti will be punched in the face.

Pertti Will be...

strangled to d-d-d-death.

That's why I write these things.

Hi! How's it going?

Have a friggin' good time!

Wave your hands in the air

like you don't give a f***!

Now we'll kick some ass!

One, two, one, two, three, four.

Sorry, sorry...

Sorry for this little...

Let's give it another try.

- It's okay

It was a Sunday

I went to church

I had coffee I took a dump

It was a Sunday

I went to church

I had coffee I took a dump

Thank you.

Sorry I made a little blunder

in the beginning.

Don't worry

These things can happen to anyone.

Will you help us carry the stuff?

- No, I don't think so.

I can't carry anything now

I've been so stressed out

the whole week.

I'm still a bit stressed.

- Now you can do whatever you like.

What's the name of this song?

"Six Cups of Coffee."

- Flight. "Six..."

Six. Six.

Okay start dictating.


- "Coffee" What then?

Let's see.

It has to be honest.

Sure. "Coffee is good."

Let's write "Coffee..."

You mean that coffee..

- ...Is good...

"Coffee is good." Right.

- ...when you drink it.


If a human being

doesn't get coffee...

I-low do you spell "human being"?

What comes after H?

- U, M, A, N, B, I, N.

Human being.

Did I spell it right?

Spell it out.

What comes after M?

- A, N, B, I, N.

"Human... being."

"Human being."

"Human being."


What does it say so far, Pertti?

Are you up there?

- Yes.

Okay I'll call home and tell them...

that I'm coming to your place today.


- Ag reed.
