    A recent fanmade song about ‘Hot Trend’ IU has become a hot topic.

    On the 23rd, a fan-made song titled ‘IU is Greater than Metallica?’ was uploaded onto a musician community site ‘Mule’, by the user ‘Ah Man Joong’ (which stands for ‘A gathering of males in their mid-20s who want to meet IU’).

    Just as the title suggests, Ah Man Joong uses the heavy guitar riffs, deep bass and powerful drums reminiscent of the band Metallica, all the while singing about IU.

    The lyrics (see below) reflect the affection that oppas in their twenties have for IU.

    Particularly, the fusion of Metallica’s ‘Enter Sandman’ with IU’s ‘You Know’ has received a lot of attention.

    In response to this fanmade song, netizens commented “IU truly is great,” “IU is genuinely the hottest trend,” “One wouldn’t expect such music to contain so much love,” and “Should I make something too?”

    i think it was kind of scary...lol

    but using a rock song to say IU is better than some pretty good bands is pretty weird...

    what will they think of next? using a rap song to say IU is better than eminem, LOL...

    The lyrics are so funny! XD And it's not the type of song you'd associate with IU, but for some reason it totally works lol. Thanks for sharing this, it's so awesome.
