[After Music Station '14 Feb. 7]

This is the audio track of http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/music/sec/artist/2013/140207.html with an English subtitle. This interview was done just after their appearance on MUSIC STATION.

Music Station is a famous music TV program targeting mainly young people, broadcasted by TV Asahi every Friday night. Besides the idols appear also rock bands and sometimes the foreign musicians who have come to Japan. Though it is a live music program, the music part is short (except for some big artists). For BABYMETAL, "IJIME, DAME, ZETTAI" was shortened from 6:07 to 2:30, with the 1 min. introducing video and the 1 min. talk with the host. BABYMETAL seemed to be very tense during the program because they knew how big it is while they seemed not when being with Metallica because they didn't know them well.

    The video which I uploaded to YouTube was deleted 7 months later, and this was also deleted, so I uploaded this to Google Drive on 2016 May 14th. I hope it'll survive long. There is also the extracted audio track on Youtube.

Notes

  1. In "IJIME, DAME, ZETTAI", the fans usually do "dame" jump with YUI&MOA (= jump with arms crossed and the fox signs). In the program, the guests were taught how to do it before the tune started.
  2. Miss YUIMETAL actually said as if she would perform after this. Probably she was not sure of their performance until she watched the playbacked video.
  3. Since BABYMETAL and T.M.Revolution (a.k.a. Takanori NISHIKAWA) were lined up together in some music festivals, they may have got acquaintance with each other.
  4. Miss Yui & Miss Moa will graduate from junior high school in 2015 March.
  5. Miss Mayu WATANABE (19 yr) is a member of AKB48 (the big power "Idols"!). She has been a big fan of Miss Moa, BABYMETAL and Sakura Gakuin since early in 2011 (confirmed by her official blog). AKB48's fans say she seemed to be very merry to be with BABYMETAL.

00:00:02,500 --> 00:00:04,400
[iv (=interviewer)] Thank you for your hard work.

2
00:00:04,500 --> 00:00:05,800
[BM] Thank you for your hard work.

3
00:00:05,900 --> 00:00:07,200
[iv] How was today's program?

4
00:00:07,300 --> 00:00:10,300
[SU] I was very tense at first.

5
00:00:10,400 --> 00:00:12,300
But, while we were performing,

6
00:00:12,400 --> 00:00:17,200
all the artists kindly did the "dame" jump with us.  *1

7
00:00:17,300 --> 00:00:21,600
It was so encouraging
and I enjoyed the program so much.

8
00:00:21,700 --> 00:00:22,900
[iv] Miss MOAMETAL, how did you feel?

9
00:00:23,000 --> 00:00:28,000
[MOA] Well, as I have often watched
Music Station since before,

10
00:00:28,100 --> 00:00:33,000
I couldn't believe
we were appearing on such a TV program,

11
00:00:33,100 --> 00:00:35,100
so my heart was beating fast.

12
00:00:35,200 --> 00:00:37,700
But I was happy that I could enjoy the program.

13
00:00:37,800 --> 00:00:39,400
[iv] Miss YUIMETAL, how did you feel?

14
00:00:39,500 --> 00:00:42,900
[YUI] Well, appearing on Music Station this time,

15
00:00:43,000 --> 00:00:49,300
I was so tense that I felt as if
one hour had passed away the fastest in my life.

16
00:00:49,400 --> 00:00:55,700
But I hope we have done
good performance with our united efforts.  *2

17
00:00:55,800 --> 00:00:56,800
[iv] Did you all get tense?

18
00:00:56,900 --> 00:00:59,300
[BM] Yes. [SU] We all got so tense.

19
00:00:59,700 --> 00:01:03,400
[iv] Well, did you talk with other artists?

20
00:01:03,500 --> 00:01:08,600
[SU] Yes. We got a chance to talk
with T.M.Revolution, Mr. NISHIKAWA.  *3

21
00:01:08,700 --> 00:01:10,700
He asked us how old we are.

22
00:01:10,800 --> 00:01:13,500
We answered we are in the eighth and the tenth grade.

23
00:01:13,600 --> 00:01:16,300
Then he said Yui & Moa would be busy
this year for the entrance examination,  *4

24
00:01:16,400 --> 00:01:17,900
and he looked like our daddy.

25
00:01:18,000 --> 00:01:19,700
At last he said "do your best!",

26
00:01:19,800 --> 00:01:22,500
and we answered "teach us our study, please!"

27
00:01:22,600 --> 00:01:26,100
[iv] Miss MOAMETAL, you talked
with Miss Mayu WATANABE, didn't you?  *5

28
00:01:26,200 --> 00:01:32,200
[MOA] Yes. BABYMETAL started
as the sub group of Sakura Gakuin.

29
00:01:32,300 --> 00:01:37,900
She told me she had come
to the concert of Sakura Gakuin.

30
00:01:38,000 --> 00:01:39,600
I thanked her for that.

31
00:01:39,700 --> 00:01:42,100
[iv] Then, tell us your schedule, please.

32
00:01:42,200 --> 00:01:47,700
[SU] Our first album "BABYMETAL"
will be released on February 26th.

33
00:01:47,800 --> 00:01:52,900
And we will hold two concerts
at Nihon Budokan on March 1st & 2nd.

34
00:01:53,000 --> 00:01:55,700
Please come and join us.

35
00:01:55,800 --> 00:01:57,200
[YUIMOA] Please come and join us.

36
00:01:57,300 --> 00:02:00,700
[iv] At last, send your message to your fans, please.

37
00:02:00,800 --> 00:02:05,500
[SU] In a new genre,
the fusion of the idols and the metal,

38
00:02:05,600 --> 00:02:08,400
we want to challenge more various things.

39
00:02:08,500 --> 00:02:10,200
Please support us in the future as well.

40
00:02:10,300 --> 00:02:11,400
This was BABYMETAL.

41
00:02:11,500 --> 00:02:13,300
[BM] See you!

  1. Unfortunately, it looks like that's been DMCA'd from Youtube, I wonder if you could upload it to Daily Motion instead. If not, thanks for your effort, and at least the subs are here for all to see.
