This dude thinks so, but my question is if you know that headbanging "is dangerous" would you wear the suggested neck brace (hahaha unlikely), stop doing it completely or just keep rocking?

Also, does anyone know of someone actually getting hurt from headbanging?

Here's the article.

No.
Your article will not faze me.

EDIT: I'm offended that he thinks people head bang to AC/DC.
Blindfolds aside I'd probably still close my eyes

And try to feel a trembling fetal life inside
that shotgun barrel that's about to make me bleed

Like an ulcer in the stomach of the beast

I am pretty sure the neck brace thing was a joke. and this is SO old

ever heard of a bangover?
Only the blue sky and the green grass
Go on forever in this world
Where seconds feel like eternity
And years pass in blink of an eye

My neck was soar for two days once after furiously headbanging to Bohemian Rhapsody... frigging Wayne's World...

Mr. Fancy Pants can save his statistics and his technical jargon. I will bang my head violently in an uncontrolled manner because that is the way things are supposed to be.

bangover. good'un, IRONxPANTERA. i wake up with a sore neck all the time, but i'm going to have a huge neck later on in life. its exercise, and even though it can hurt, i don't think it will kill you.

do you think i made that up?

I've given myself whiplash and pinched a nerve in my spin/neck from headbanging. so yes, yuo can get hurt and it is harmful to your body. I still do it, just in moderation and not as viciously.

Like that'll ever happen. I'll keep on rocking.

Neck brace... pfft, even the news reporters said that it was bollocks.

Just dont headbang that much... probably do it in the excessive riffs.

Yup, that pretty much sums up the majority of the pit. Smoking and drinking both do damage, many of the people in the pit do it. Drugs are harmful, we have a discussion FOR drugs. Maybe you're a bit too "intellectual" for the pit. I suggest music theory or the Electric/ acoustic guitar forum for you.

The only time I've ever heard of someone actually getting hurt, is the "new" guy for Evanessence. Something about losing cartilage in his neck, so he had to get surgery. I don't remember exactly, but that's basically it I think...

Headbanging with a neck brace... I'll do that next time I go to a show.

Actually, I smoke, drink and headbang. I'm just saying they're obviously harmful, I'm not saying I particularly give a shit.
