Due to its extreme sound and aggressive lyrics, heavy metal music is often associated with controversy. Among the genre’s most contentious moments, there have been instances of blasphemous merchandise, accusations of promoting suicide, and blame for mass school shootings. Why, then, if it’s so “bad”, do so many people enjoy it? And does this music genre really have a negative effect on them? ... ans-118476

I've never liked heavy metal. It's too harsh sounding for me.

I think it's like violent video games. It lets people relieve their stress? I don't really understand it myself. Music influence me a lot, and fast music is like coffee and can be over-stimulating. I suspect that people who like coffee might like heavy metals. :D
