Art of Noise FACTS: Metal is bad for your health...

...or at least head-banging is according to this report in the latest BMJ.

I particularly liked the conclusion which suggests that a possible intervention for the reduction of injury risk is...

"the substitution of adult oriented rock and easy listening music such as the controls [Whitney Houston, Lionel Richie and Styx], or others including Michael Bolton, Celine Dion, Enya, and Richard Clayderman, for heavy metal"
Sadly, the amount of Burzum fans in Norway who list 'Orinoco Flow' in their Top 5 guilty pleasures went unrecorded.

It's good to know an esteemed professional periodical such as the BMJ can go into the Christmas period with its tongue planted firmly into its cheek (and not to study salival erosion of the facial protuberance either).
