A couple of years ago, Eyjafjallajökull erupted, and news announcers all over the world began tripping over their tongues. Now JJ DOOM uses the name in the first verse of the track GUV'NOR from their new album KEYS TO THE CUFFS:
Catch a throatful from the fire vocal
Ash and molten glass like Eyjafjallajökull
Volcano out of Iceland
Go conquer and destroy the rap world like the white men
You can listen to the rest, and watch the video, here.
Icelanders may suggest a bit more practice, but MF DOOM does better than lots of news announcers did, back in April of 2010. And for extra flavor, the track mixes in the sound of someone fumbling for the pronunciation in the background.
This is not the first English song to reference the volcano by name, however…
