Effects on the global society on a whole. How it brings out sweden etc to the world in a way that nothing else really has. I'm american, and i had no idea that most of the metal bands weren't either british or american

Notable bands, and subgenres, how they differ and develop, die and get revived.

You could talk about how the roots of metal lie in blues, an inherently black form of music, and how this relates to metal as a style of music predominantly played by white pople.

Personally, I think the most interesting part of metal (culturally) is Black metal. I am not a fan of the subgenre, but the history and motives behind it are incredibly interesting.

Also, aesthetics. It's probably the genre of music with some of the strongest aesthetics and theatrics around - from Cannibal Corpse artwork to Iron Maiden's live shows.

I wrote a paper on metal in my English class. I wrote mostly about the history of metal. It was only a ten page report though.

Anyways, the documentary Metal: A Headbanger's Journey, and the book "Sound of The Beast: A Complete Head-Banging History Of Heavy Metal" By Ian Christe would be good things to take a look at if you're in need of sources.
