It is pretty good. But I'd like to lodge a complaint:

1. The song is too long.
2. (Hey!! That's more than one complaint) I found the subtitles unnecessary at the beginning but wished they had PUT subtitles for the rapper guy - I couldn't understand him at all. (except that he was complaining)

I agree with llizard--the song is too long but I still found it funny. I have to agree with the song--the beer is too much in town. I'd like to participate in a Complaints Song on the West Coast. I would like to complain about bad drivers particularly in the snow. oh boy! oh boy! oh boy! skip whoo hoo!

If I didn't know that the song would take WAY too long to sing, I'd like to participate in the Complaints Song for Toronto. The verses about bad drivers particularly in the snow, rain, sunshine, day, night... would take at least 10 minutes. la la la

But I might need to join anyway. I would like to complain about local fruits and vegetables being picked when green so that by the time they get to our tables, they look good but are entirely tastefree. stomp

The Helsinki Complaints Choir is good too; much more polished (not sure if that's a good thing or not).

I Want To Complain about people who try to get onto the subway train before everyone has gotten off. Even when they wait, they crowd the door only leaving a half-person-wide gap so it takes five times as long to get off, and then they start moving into the train when there's still one or two people left to get off. I understand why they do it - it's not to get where they're going faster, it's to get into the train and onto a seat faster than the people at the other doors. la la la

I want to complain about those rail-travellers who, I assume, bathe in urine before boarding a crowded train.

My main complaint is that the Birmingham Complaints choir wasn't online when I looked. Got a message saying "scheduled downtime" for a couple of days in a row. However, I did find a site at http://www.complaintschoir.org/ where you can link to some complaints choirs including Helsinki.
