About this song

"The Final Countdown" is a hard rock song by Europe, from their 1986 breakthrough album of the same name. The song's musical-style and production were heavily inspired by glam metal, glam rock and hard rock from the 80s. Released as the album's first single, the song entered the top five on the majority of the charts it appeared on. It is arguably the band's most recognizable and popular song. The song was based on an old keyboard riff that vocalist Joey Tempest had composed as early as 1981
