My boyfriend just linked me to this Finnish rap music video, titled "Jeesei".



As you can hear, it's either sampling or recreating this melody from the GNG soundtrack. Just an example of the series' influence on Finland, when it's even used in mainstream rap.

Thats. CRAZY!!
It sounds so freakin good too! To think one day Ginga's ost could be used as a beat to rap to... it works though! I kinda hope they make more with more Ginga ost xD

This reminds me of when I once watched a Finnish fan dub of a Sonic movie by a group called "Dubbinaattorit" and they used GNG's osts for some scenes, or at least one. Much like the rap, this just goes to show the anime's impact over here. They also at some point dubbed the missing later parts of GNG, but I'm not sure if those are anywhere to be found anymore, unfortunately (as they shut themselves down at one point).

Link in the spoiler, the music is at 16:55 if you're curious.:
"Exceed the you from yesterday."

Words to truly live by.
