Re: Santorum: declaring war on heavy metal

While I was being snide, the comments by Rob Zombie (particularly the last line) appeared to me to be more about energizing his fans rather than holding any truth - the equivalent of rock bands yelling "HELLO ST LOUIS!" to pump up the crowd. Heavy Metal is a solid subculture to music. They aren't mainstream, they are loyal and they will flock to large festivals to make it appear the music is large and thriving. Doesn't necessarily mean it is (I'm sure they are doing just fine for themselves) and it doesn't make them the "true fans" compared to anyone else.

But they do enjoy the chest beating because they are surrounded by music that is not to their tastes.
