HANNOVER, GERMANY – Listening to loud music can give you a headache. But heavy metal fans beware, for one man “headbanging” led to something much, much worse!

A 50-year-old German man might have rocked a little too hard at a Motörhead concert, cause afterwards he went to the hospital complaining of constant headaches only to be told by doctors that “banging his head” caused his brain to bleed! Now that’s hardcore!

The Lancet Medical Journal published this story of a hard rocking dad, who needed a hole drilled into his head to get his brain drained of excess blood. Talk about having a wet noodle! The good news is that once his soggy noggin was drained, his headaches went away. But should this serve as a warning to all headbangers to stop banging their heads?? According to these doctors, surprisingly “no”.

Dr. Ariyan Islamian, a doctor who treated the headbanging fan says injuries like his are rare and goes on to say, “Rock ‘n’ roll will never die. Heavy metal fan should rock on.”

And as a testament to the legendary heavy metal British band, Islamian declares 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.”

So there you go, scientific proof that Motörhead still knows how to rock. Well until ya drop!
