Metal fans be warned...


I often get great stories passed onto me by friends that subscribe to Popbitch.
Here's a belter...

It's not a good time to be a heavy metal fan in Iran.

Last week Iran's Minister of Culture, Mohamed Hosein Sarrar-Harandi, gave an interview to Spanish newspaper El Pais where he talked about his taste in pop music.

Mr Sarrar-Harandi said, "I know there are music genres, mostly heavy metal, that can provoke - combined with some hallucinogens - young people to jump out of the windows of cars while driving at high speed. I'm opposed to that kind of music."

Fans of Megadeth pay heed, we don't want you doing a Brian Harvey now do we!
