Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät To Represt Finland At Eurovision

The winner Aina mun pitää (I always have to) is a punk song written and performed by Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät. At 1:25 (one minute and twenty-five seconds) Aina mun pitää is bound to be the shortest song ever in the history of the Eurovision Song Contest.

The band's name in English is Pertti Kurikka's Name Day. Pertti Kurikan is the guitarist of the band; they are also known by their acronym, PKN.

This four-piece came together at a cultural workshop for the learning disabled and they’ve been making fierce punk rock ever since. A documentary on the band, The Punk Syndrome, was released in 2012 and has won several awards both in Finland and abroad.
