so my band takes stage presence as a preety big deal, were into some pretty rank head banging and such, our last show we tried to do some synced head banging ( like the band miss may i ) basically wed just regularly head bang, but on every snare wed **** our heads back super far, apparently it looks pretty sick, but point being everyone in the bands neck is just killin them for the next few days after every show, i was just wondering if any one of you guys have any ideas on how not to completely kill all your neck muscles when head banging, i am running reeeal low on rub a535 lol

**** = c0ck. I think.

I suggest stopping the head banging and do synchronized jumping jacks.

It goes away on itself when you've built up enough muscle. Or you snap your neck and become disabled.
#12
You should do synchronised handstands/cartwheels instead. So much more br00tal.

Don't headbang so much.

It might look good, but is it worth your neck?


If so, keep going, but expect your neck to permanently **** up some time in the future.

That's your problem. If you're doing that every snare, of course you're gonna screw up your neck.

Ctually work out. There is a weight machine that you put the side of your head on and push it sideways. It works your neck muscles a ton. We used it at school for soccer.

Do it with control so you dont get the whole whiplash effect. Also, dave mustaine recently said that his neck is affecting his mobility because he didnt prepare for shows/headbanging properly, so therefore you should warm up so you dont completely destroy your neck after a few gigs. Or, just turn into corey taylor and have a gigantic neck....

is there any like stretches or anything that might help?? i mean most bands headbang we cant be the only band with this problem haha

A suck it up just headbang till your neck snaps then you'll be br00tal
But seriously just do a little bit of head banging, don't do it the entire show maybe? Just do it when you are playing some really tasty riff or something.

Why are so many bands obsessed with choreographed headbanging these days? It looks retarded, bro. The rock gods are shamed.
