For the episode with the same name, see Yo Way Yo (episode).

Yo Way Yo is a song frequently sung by Kai. The song is known only in an ancient and long forgotten language of the Brunnen-G, and its exact translation and meaning are unknown. At the time of the fall of the Brunnen-G people, the song is sung by their warriors in battle, and is most famously known to be sung during the Brunnen-G suicide attack on the Foreshadow, flagship of the Divine Order, shortly before it destroys the planet.

TriviaEdit

  • Kai sings an Irish interpretation of the song in Lexx 4.6 "The Rock"
  • Michael McManus (the actor who plays Kai) is an accomplished pianist, and the versions you hear Kai play in "The Rock" are versions that McManus arranged and played himself.[1]
  • The opening credit version has Marty Simon and his choir mixed in together. The live Kai singing in his spacecraft in Lexx 1.1 "I Worship His Shadow" has Michael’s voice mixed in with the choir of five other males.[2]
