This is a Slovenian pop song called "The Whistleblowers." And the band behind the song -- "Laibach" -- is set to become the first foreign pop group to play in North Korea. Their record label says the band is scheduled for two August concerts in Pyongyang. But that's not all... the band, famous for performing in military uniforms at the start of their career, will perform in specially made Korean costumes. The band's website says the concerts will "coincide with the 70th anniversary of the Korean peninsula's liberation from Japanese colonization and subsequent division into two enemy states."
