Finnish radio station HitMix is holding a big celebration to mark the 20-year anniversary of Darude’s Sandstorm this Friday.

And it’s quite out there.

The station will be playing the song non-stop for an entire 24 hours.

Would you want that even from your favourite song? We mean, we love Tay-Tay but 24 hours of the same thing, non-stop, no matter how great it is, sounds a bit nightmarish.

Still, maybe some Sandstorm superfans will be pleased about it.

The tune was released in Finland in 1999 by 16 Inch Records as the lead single on Darude’s Before The Storm album.

Siis mikä biisi tää on? NO SANDSTORM!!🤪🏜 Tänä syksynä tulee kuluneeksi 20 vuotta Darude-klassikon julkaisusta. HitMix…

It was then re-released in many other countries the following year.

Over the following decade, Sandstorm gained global recognition so that by 1 March 2010, over 10 years after it was first released, it received a Gold certification in the US from the Recording Industry Association Of America for selling over 500,000 copies.

It’s possible you won’t recognise the name of the song, but it’s almost certain you will have heard it.

Over the last 20 years it’s been used constantly, especially during sporting events and internet meme culture.

If you still aren’t sure, you should probably turn HitMix on this Friday.

Maybe not for 24 hours though.
