Good, but they can't touch this guy. He pushes the head banging to 11.

If I had to compare the two, I enjoyed that link far more - actually retained more of the "flavor" of the original, while still listenable. Subby's link? Not so much.

Meh, it's more like a mashup than a cover. Other than the chorus, there isn't anything recognizable in the music that indicates that it's Gangham Style. Then again, I'm just a hack guitar player and former DJ, what do I know?

/ asians playing metal would be a confusing experience.

Here's more from China

Tengger Cavalry - Blood Sacrifice Shaman

and from Taiwan -
Blair Witch - World of Wildness

and Thailand -
Zygoatsis - Evoke the Goatphomet

There's tons more from Indonesia and Singapore, and Korea has some good stuff too (though harder to find).

I'm not sure why it's confusing...

Rather nice! Although it was a surreal experience to have, side by side, that video and an advertisement for ChristianMingle.com, it was great to listen to some serious metal from a new (at least, to me) source.

/Does anyone else read that as "Christian Minge", and realize that even with the misreading, the purpose of the service doesn't change?

Not matter what the version... still sounds like he is saying, "Condom Style"

I'm not certain they were going for a direct cover. It would probably be better without the vocals.

i liked it, but if they hadn't included the vocals, i would have never known it was gangnam style.

always will prefer Ten Masked Men to turn over hyped pop songs to metal.

Ten Masked Men - Blue

Yes.  Tengger Cavalry freakin' rules. Mongolian throat singing is exceptionally metal.

For wacky metal covers of pop songs, I like Necrocomiccon's take on Hello or Careless Whisper.

Blood of the Black Owl also uses them (not a favorite of mine, but definitely interesting) as does Darkestrah
