A: I love Nightwish so much.

A: Good thing because girls don't fuck guys who like Nightwish anyway!

Superhero Vixen with glowing eyes and a killer bod that kicks ass; caries a gun and blade.

A popular Finnish metal band that is in desperate need of innovation. Distinct for being popular not only in Europe, but also in the U.S. and other countries across the pond. Known for the poetic lyrics of their frontman, Tuomas Holopainen, and the operatic voice of Tarja Turunen, who has since left (forcibly) due to band drama.

Nightwish seems to want to produce music that is of a more mature grade than what comes to mind when one thinks of "metal," and succeeded, but only at first. After five albums they are still singing about the SAME things and in many cases, using the EXACT SAME words, phrases, and motifs. The ocean soul thing was insightful back in Oceanborn, but four albums later, it starts to feel like Tuomas has fashioned his ocean soul into a metal hammer that he has been swiftly and forcefully smashing against my head for the past four years. Unfortunately my desire to listen to them has been steadily leaking out of the resulting hole in my skull.

Their soft, melodic signature that they started with has been compromised by a vicious repetition of symbology and the overtly elementary singing skills of bassist Marco Hietala, who has since gotten more and more singing parts in recent albums. What began as a borderline revolution in metal has turned into a musical Days of our Lives - stagnant as a quadriplegic's legs, derivative of itself, and giving off a throbbing feeling that you already watched this shit ten years ago.
Fan 1: Poor Nightwish...what's with Marco's voice on Wish I Had an Angel?
Fan 2: His vocal chords were raping his mouth that day, but they had to record then no matter what because Tuomas had just discovered a way to reword the Ocean Soul metaphor to actually sound convincingly new, and he would have lost the idea if they waited a whole day.
Fan 1: Oh.
Fan 2: Well, don't believe everything you read in Rolling Stone.

come on, you gotta love it, even if the music MAY be a bit sad and the screaming MAY be a bit over the top.
Nightwish = pokemon opera

1. A band that nerds listen to in their Saturns as they get pumped up on the way to their RolePlayingGame Conventions dressed as Cloud from Final Fantasy 7.

2. Music that nerds listen to when they have played out all of their Anime soundtracks.

3. Music that the hardest Mofo at the Renaissance Fair blares with the Saturn doors open as he sets up tents.

4. Euro-trash
1. NERD1: "Dude, your tail is caught in the Saturn's door."
NERD2: "Oh man! Now its ruined and I won't win!"
NERD1: "It's okay man, lets listen to NIGHTWISH!"
NERD2: "YEESSSSSSSSSS!" (Pumping his fist)
2. "I'm tired of listening to the Dragon Ball Z soundtrack, how about some NIGHTWISH?"
3. "I totally dig Nightwish! I listen to it when I practice my SWORDPLAY!"
4. "Hello. Do you like my mullet and my jean jacket? My favorite band is Nightwish."
