Researchers found that metal-heads from the ’80s “were significantly HAPPIER in their youth.” Quote, “[Fans] felt a kinship in the metal community, and [had] a way to experience heightened emotions with like-minded people.”

It’s possible the data was skewed though, because most of the people in the study were, quote, “relatively high functioning individuals.” In other words, you’re not that likely to sign up for a study if you still listen to Slayer and get hammered every day.
