Its from the Norse and `Anglo-Saxon` warriors who fought as an elite guard for the Eastern Roman Empire at Constantinople,they were known as the Varangian Guard.

First song I heard was `Back on the streets`,which to this day reminds me of Wolfsbane`s `I like it hot` although I much prefer the latter(sorry Biff)

Then I saw the `Ride like the wind` video,which didnt think great deal of, Northern men dressed like they wanna party in L.A

oh and in white spandex singing `everybody up`

eventually only a couple of years ago in fact I decided to go and listen to the classics and got into them from there

Haha yeah can see why you may have been put off, give some of the albums a try from that era though there are still some good songs to be listened to. Broken Heroes, Rock The Nations, Battle Cry etc.
