Europe: The Final Countdown

Europe Final Countdown TeslaMondoIf it’s true that Norway is going to ban gas cars by 2025, and The Netherlands is likely to do the same, this may spread throughout the continent. The final countdown may have begun for the ICE in Europe. If so, this means the impossible has happened.

It means 80s heavy metal is finally, after three decades, showing some redeeming social value, for a frizz metal band called Europe predicted a final countdown.

Headline translates to “Arduous fretwork and histrionic vocals. Long live the 80s.”

Musk tinkled and tweeted with glee about this rumor.

Mind you, this is just the latest 80s metal association with Tesla.* The company, of course, shares its name with an 80s metal band. Moreover, a new metal group called Raptor Command just released a gawdawful tribute song to Elon Musk. Where’s the connection to the 80s? Maxxxwell Carlisle of Raptor Command (yes, triple-X in the name), is also a member of Hellion. Well, back in the 80s, when Carlisle was toilet training, there was another metal band named Hellion, which was unoriginally named after the opening instrumental in Judas Priest’s 1982 Screaming For Vengeance album. (Incidentally, that instrumental was employed in this Honda Odyssey commercial.)

If our world is indeed a computer simulation, as Musk suspects, it seems the Tesla Motors story is inexplicably backed by HM midi files. Strange, because Kraftwerk’s Autobahn would seem a natural choice for, say, background tunage during Model III’s second unveiling — excepting the engine sound effects, of course. Ya know, maybe music and Tesla Motors just don’t go together.

*The connection is dubious at best, but that’s good enough for TeslaMondo on a boring Friday. Just go along with it and stop complaining.

  1. […] Editor’s Note: We’ve previously discussed the likelihood that Norway would ban gas cars (by 2025) here on CleanTechnica, and we’ve reported on the proposal from the Netherlands to do the same, and the proposal from Austria to ban gas & diesel cars by 2020! Exciting stuff. Also see our exclusive update on Norway’s EV policies from Robin Laumb here, and Oslo’s move to become the first capital city to divest from fossil fuels. And don’t forget that India is also aiming to go fully electric by 2030! The announcement was made by the Minister of Energy shortly after he and I gave presentations almost back to back at a high-rolling institutional investment conference in Mumbai, but I honestly don’t think there’s any relationship, despite Steve’s flattering suggestion. If you don’t understand why governments would do this, go read up on how greenhouse gas emissions could eliminate human livability on our planet and how much air pollution costs humans every year. Now that you’ve done all of that, here’s the fun repost from our good (and mysterious) friend at TeslaMondo: […]
