Don’t believe me? Then watch this video of the theme song (yes, theme song!) for the 2016 League of Legends Champions Korea Summer Tournament. It’s epic.

The video features some of the country’s biggest LoL teams, and, as tipster Sang points out, that’s indie Korean rock bank Guckkasten belting out the tune.

There are chains, flames, and guitar solos. That’s probably all you need, really.
