If a country LOVES metal music, they have more money....

The popularity of heavy metal music can predict how wealthy a country is.
Researchers looked at the number of heavy metal bands in the country and a range of economic and social factors. They found that the number of heavy metal bands per country was linked with the nation’s economic output, level of creativity and entrepreneurship. Countries that had more heavy metal bands had more adults who had college degrees, and had higher levels of well-being and satisfaction with life. Example: Scandinavian countries are very rich....and love their metal bands.

Some believe the dark, cold days of northern Europe reflect heavy metal's emotional darkness and fury.
