Does it surprise you to learn that I'm a fan of loud heavy metal music? Not all of it, and not all the time. These days my heavy metal intake is pretty much limited to a few odd bands (the odder the better!) at the annual Pitchfork Music Festival. Back in the day, though, I did a little headbanging right up next to the big speakers.
For some reason I really dig Rob Zombie, whose 51st birthday was yesterday. I think it’s because he adds a goofy B-movie horror ethos to the heavy metal rush. Doesn’t sound like it should work but give a listen to the Playlist below. I think you’ll be Headbanging right along in no time.
By the way, this is what Wikipedia has to say about Headbanging:
Headbanging is violently shaking one's head in time with music, normally to whip long hair back and forth. Headbanging is sometimes used by musicians on stage, and is most common in the rock, punk and heavy metal music genres.
