Icelandic Rapping? CCP's Permaband:

The team at CCP has always been a little different. Of course, you know them for EVE Online, but in somewhat of a paradox from their ultra-hardcore space MMO, these guys are truly one of a kind.

Icelanders know how to party. Each year, their FanFest is one of the most complete, over the top and fun fan gatherings any game puts on and CCP has developed a reputation for hosting the best video game conference parties each year.

What's best about them though is their completely fearless approach to the outside world. Most developers will never let the press talk to anyone save the most vetted, senior people. CCP lets people at their Fanfest talk to anyone. No other developer will actually tell you how many subscribers they have. CCP will give you that answer down to the last digit. 

So, oddly, it came as no surprise that during Fanfest the team released their own company rap video. Yes, Iceland isn't known for its thriving rap scene, and you can hear the accent through the chorus, but once again, despite having a very serious game, CCP has shown that they don't take themselves too seriously. It's refreshing.

The video is by their in-house band Permaband, which is actually the second CCP bred musical group. Previous Fanfests have been headlined by their rock band "RoXor," who continued the trend with a performance this year.

Before clicking the link, though, let me get the obligatory "NSFW" (Not Safe For Work!) warning out the way. This video contains some strong language. The name of the song is "HTFU" and if you're up on your internet acronyms, you can guess what the F stands for.

Enjoy the video!

m3ta. Do you think they shouldn't be allowed to take BREAKS? The company can use the money they make off their product however they damn well please.
