Metal Music Misconceptions Revealed (I’m Pissed)
Well here we go again! Some stupid Doctor spent money on research that didn't need to be spent. The claim is that Heavy Metal Music is listened to by only the young and the depressed! They interviewed 50, 13-18 year olds and came to this conclusion.
"Most young people listen to a range of music in positive ways -- to block out crowds, to lift their mood or to give them energy when exercising -- but young people at risk of depression are more likely to be listening to music, particularly heavy metal music, in a negative way."
This came from Dr. Katrina McFerran, a researcher at the Universty Of Melbourne, Australia. I think that some of the "Uplifting" music that she is talking about would make me depressed! HA Metal music actually keeps me from kicking someone ass. Who's with me?
