Study Says That Headbangers Are Smarter Than Classical Music Fans!

Do clever kids headbang? Well, according to a survey conducted by psychologist Stuart Cadwallader, teenagers who crank up Heavy Music could be unusually bright. As we all know, many of us (if not all of us) use loud/fast music as a way to deal with the pressure of being gifted outsiders.

Cadwallader, who surveyed 1,057 members of the National Academy for Gifted and Talented Youth (now IGGY: International Gateway for Gifted Youth), had this to say about the research he gathered:

"There is a perception of gifted students as being into classical music. That's an inaccurate stereotype." So in the wise words of MACHINE HEAD's Robb Flynn: "HEADBANG MOTHERF'ER!"

Note: IGGY is targeted at the brightest young people (aged 11–19) from across the globe.
