    For all those "Arrested Development" fans, you know the song merely as G.O.B.'s signature music when he's doing his magic act.

    But the song is actually "The Final Countdown," by one-hit wonder Europe. And it's hilarious (let's just say it didn't age well from the time it was first released in 1986).

    We're leaving together,
    But still it's farewell
    And maybe we'll come back
    To earth, who can tell?
    I guess there is no one to blame
    We're leaving ground (leaving ground)
    Will things ever be the same again?
    It's the final countdown
    The final countdown​

    Oy.

    But that makes it the perfect song with which to troll North Korea.


    That's right, a hacker burst onto a North Korean short-wave radio station and played the Swedish band's big hit, the Epoch Times reports.

    News of the incident was posted on Twitter by vigilante hacker, “The Jester,” who has in the past gained fame by hacking jihadist websites, and who in October 2016 defaced the website of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs with the message, “Stop attacking Americans.” ...

    The 6400kHz station is based in Kanggye close to the North Korean border with China, and is used by North Korean radio station Pyongyang Broadcasting Station (Pyongyang BS), which also broadcasts on the 621, 1053, and 3250 frequencies.

    The North Korean communist regime has in the past used the 6400kHz radio station to broadcast coded messages. Strategic Sentinel, a Washington-based nonpartisan geostrategic consulting company, noted that North Korea often broadcasts messages on the station ahead of provocations.

    Twitter wags had a field day.
