Hi guys, so because it was 30C last night I ended up on one of those weird 3am Youtube journeys where you stumble upon the more…interesting things the site has to offer and I made quite a shocking discovery.

Do you want something a little spicier? How about this nice little jingle about a paramilitary death squad/?
Meanwhile, the Croatians have gone for a prog-rock approach:
And to top it all off, we have a diss track, a goddamn diss track:
There are many, many more examples of songs like this and they all sound so worryingly upbeat and happy. I wasn't entirely sure what to do with this new found knowledge, so I thought I'd share it with you guys.
I'm generally surprised no one's used them as backing music to a balkan-themed troll video or anything like that, as they have the same sort of feel as the Ievan Polkka or the Soviet march from Red Alert 3.
