As for the theory that head banging too much might make you unconscious, the researchers state that this probably can't happen, unless a person is banging their head against a stage

Yes, we smash our heads against large solid objects

Edit: That wasn't even the stupidest thing in the article

To protect against these injuries, the researchers note that bands could play less ‘beat-oriented’ songs and instead play more mellow music. They also suggest that some record labels place anti-head banging warnings on the packaging .

... really?

“To minimise the risk of head and neck injury, headbangers should decrease their range of head and neck motion, headbang to slower tempo songs by replacing heavy metal with adult oriented rock, only headbang to every second beat, or use personal protective equipment,” said Professor McIntosh.


Professor Macintosh? like the computer, if thats the case then i dont trust him

hahaha. I'm gonna put that on my band's first CD.

Warning: Music may cause excessive headbanging. Resist temptation to headbang furiously, it may cause serious injury.

O what a disgrace if such a despised and base race, which worships demons, should conquer a people which has the faith of omnipotent God and is made glorious with the name of Christ!

By head banging at more than a 75 degree angle, headaches and dizziness may soon follow.


That's only if you haven't done it enough!

I remember when I first started headbanging, doing it for a minute and then stopping because my neck hurt

My neck is a lot thicker than it used to be

Haha then I guess they should also put a disclaimer warning about the possible side effect of looking like George Fisher.

Wow I hate when people who know nothing about metal and try talking about it

"Researchers attended various rock and roll concerts... they discovered that the up and down head banging style was most popular".

"They average head banging song has a tempo of 146bpm".

"The researchers note that bands could play less beat orientated music".

“To minimise the risk of head and neck injury, headbangers should decrease their range of head and neck motion, headbang to slower tempo songs by replacing heavy metal with adult oriented rock, only headbang to every second beat, or use personal protective equipment.”
