Just For Fun

Metal Medical Alert!

A new study has just revealed something that might make you doublethink before head banging at the next concert you mosh into.

Two researchers from the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Sydney, Australia have published an article in the British Medical Journal, concluding that songs with a tempo of 146 beats a minute or faster can cause mild head injuries if the head's range of motion moves more than 75 degrees.

"If you observe people after concerts, they clearly look dazed, confused and incoherent, so something must be going on and we wanted to look into it," explained Dr. Andrew McIntosh, professor of biomechanics at UNSW.

The expert in the effects of head injuries, who co-authored the research findings with honors student Declan Patton, said that as the tempo of the song and the amount of head motion increase, so to do the risks.

Some of their methods included observing head bangers at heavy metal and rock concerts, surveying musicians to find out what tunes they were most likely to head bang to, and then mapping out the beats per minute of the top 10 songs cited.

"Possible preventive interventions include limiting the range of neck motion through a formal training program delivered before a concert, switching to easy-listening music like Michael Bolton, Celine Dion, Enya and Richard Clayderman, and using personal protective equipment, such as neck braces, to limit range of motion," McIntosh explained.

Now, if you must bang your head, McIntosh recommends trying to reduce risk by only thrashing on every second beat.

Yeah these f***in doctors can go die. What the f*** is the point in this research? Every decent metalhead knows that they're gonna get left with a f***ed up neck for days afterwards. "songs with a tempo of 146 beats a minute or faster can cause mild head injuries." Go f*** themselves.

I will mosh as hard as I like, and the advice they give? Change your music taste? What the hell is wrong with them - I think they need a study done on them to see where the f*** their common sense and logical thinking capacities went to.

Did they ever stop to think that may be because they're tired, hot, and possibly drunk? Of course not cuz they've never been to a metal show. These friggin' morons should realize the human body can take a lot more than headbanging.

Screw these guys, and screw your easy listening. You're all dead inside.

C) We know that if you headbang, you can get injured. So what. We mosh as hard as we like, and we deal with our f***ed up necks the week after.

F*ck that. Headbanging to Nile and Behemoth saved my life!

I got into a car accident, and everyone got whiplash EXCEPT ME! If nothing else, Metal prevents injury since extreme headbanging (such as windmills, making your head go a full 360 degrees) gives you strong neck muscles, which better prepare you for accidents.

I love the humorous comments from members on here, they always make my day. Especially when something ridiculous is posted like this metal study. I agree with everyone - I am going to enjoy my metal music, the way I want to. Preferably head banging and moshing. People can sustain injuries just by sleeping on their side a certain way, or coughing heavily...so this study is indeed bull shxt! The suggestions on ways to reduce injuries are crazy. I would never wear a neckbrace to a metal concert. Headbanging and moshing is part of the fun, and energy of the experience.

I could go for that. lol

and yeah, Ive actually been annoyed at all the chatrooms that have been popping up lately, and I'm generally one of the participants. Ive been trying to make it a point to say something on topic as much as possible, but sometimes it's impossible

post 126: How's your kitten?
post 127: the last cd emphasied more heavily on strange time signature rather than their signature unusual rhthym patterns the band is known for.., all the same, their anti-buddhism values kinda strike me as an attention seeker in it's peculiarity.
post 128: huh? why did your kitten do that?


just an example, but still...

MH: Why don't they ever do a study about metal drummers and the dammage they do to their hands? I think that would be far more entertaining than listening to some blowhard talk about whiplash. My drummers hands look as though he had them run over by godlike's 18 wheeler about 3000 times. lol.

Tomas Haake had to have shoulder surgery because of the 270+ speeds he constantly plays at in Meshuggah. That's how you know you're the sh** lol

and what about the calices on guitar players fingers? breaking down the skin in order to play better? Or vocalists straining their throats and getting polyps or scars in their larynx or whatever. or madonna's dancers and their risk of getting herpes jsut from standing too close to her for that long? It's tough in the music biz, deal with it.

Now playing: Carcass- Death Certificate

FAN: All of the above mentioned afflictions are much more entertaining than this idiots study. IMO. Seriously though, I believe drummers bear the scars more than other band members. They hit things with wood.
