A 50-year old man recently went to doctors at the Hannover Medical School in Germany after complaining about constant headaches that seemed to only get worse as time went on. With no history of head injuries or drug problems, doctors asked the man what else could have possibly led to any head trauma. The answer? The man had taken his son to a Motorhead concert the month before and had been headbanging like a freaking maniac. Before I continue, you rock on metal dad!
In a study that was published, doctors found a brain bleed and had to drill a small hole into the man’s head to drain it of the blood. The result? The headaches have since stopped.
Dr. Ariyan Pirayesh Islamian stated that with headbanging the, “…risk of injury is very, very low.”
The study writes that this case:
…serves as evidence in support of Motörhead’s reputation as one of the most hardcore rock’n’roll acts on earth, if nothing else because of their contagious speed drive and the hazardous potential for headbanging fans to suffer brain injury.
Islamian also stated, “Rock ‘n’ roll will never die. Heavy metal fans should rock on.“
