“White Love” originally by Speed.
BABYMETAL Official ◆

1. The opening music is an arrangement of Edward Elgar’s “Pomp and Circumstance #1” a.k.a. “Land of Hope and Glory”, used here for SU-METAL’s birthday celebration (Seitan-sai / 聖誕祭 meaning “holy birth festival”).
2. The “Second Impact” is the fictional meteorite impact happening on 2000 Sep. 13 in the anime “Neon Genesis EVANGELION”. SU-METAL’s birth may have made an impact equal to it.
3. “Speed King” is a tongue-in-cheek allusion to the four-girl group “SPEED”. The song “White Love” was a hit in 1997 (the year Su-Metal was born), and is originally by SPEED.
4. “invicible” is an allusion to the famous heavy metal band “X JAPAN”.
5. “Kotowari” sounds like “logos” of the ancient philosophies rather than mere “physical law” of the world.

“Endless Rain”, the final song from X Japan’s last live Dec. 31, 1997:
