'''Vazelina Bilopphøggers''' (Vazelina Auto Wreckers) is a [[UsefulNotes/{{Norway}} Norwegian]] pop and rock group, specializing in songs that borrow elements and chord progressions from classic songs (sometimes covering the songs outright), and crafting a mostly-original composition by adding bizarre humorous lyrics, which more often than not have little to no relation to a song's original lyrical content.
