  1. I'm in my low 30's, an when I was a kid headbanging was popular. Basically just kinda like an odd dance to some heavy metal music.

    Generally stoned, occasionally drunk, loud band, and teenage alpha male syndrome, having hair and ability to head-bang was a pretty token skill in the heavy metal communities?

    Do people today still ever headbang? And who on this site remembers this era :)
  2. im a senior in highschool and no one headbangs anymore. just the head nod to the beat of songs
  3. I've probably caused permanent neurological dysfunction with the amount of violent headbanging I did at shows between 15 and 17 years of age, when my hair was much longer than it is now.

    I literally can't do it any more. I'll be able to put out about five decent seconds before collapsing in skull-splitting agony.
  4. Yes! Tons of people still headbang. I don't headbang nearly as much as I used to when I was younger. My hair used to be two feet long back then and it also screwed up my back and neck because of it. But when you are listening to the right tracks it's hard not to headbang.
  5. My neck gets stiff and sore if I try to headbang with even the most minuscule effort.

    Must drink more milk.
  6. Now it's more like...

    Glad I like Jam bands and not....whatever it is these kids listen to. :confused:
  7. Help us all...
  8. Fuck yeah people still headbang.

    And that "hardcore dancing" is the most ridiculous thing ever seen live.

    I went to a metal concert once. Just a bunch of local bands. And I was expecting to have some fun in the pit.

    Only when I get there the pit is loaded with these seizure bandits. I instantly started laughing.
  9. thisss
  10. I'm pretty sure my brain rattles from all the fucking headbanging I've done. I'm a fuckin 90's guy what can I say.

  11. I don't get it, are they Pentecostals?
  12. Gives me a headache.

    I feel guilty not doing it though when I'm listening to some Maiden or some Priest.

    I second the UP THE IRONS!
  13. lol at dubstep shows i headbang sometimes, dubstep just makes me wanna go fucking insane and just go nuts, sometimes headbanging is just what im feeling
  14. Kids are into the two-step these days, but I don't think the head band will ever truly die.
  15. I still headbang, haven't been to a show in a while though. My city has a shitty [insert word]-core scene.

    No one head bangs like Corpsegrinder.. his neck is fucking huge because of decades of it.
  16. Headbangin' is still widely done in underground gigs and shows and mainstream gigs worldwide well simply put if you like the music(preferably thrashy or extreme metal) you headbang to it. Going to a Slayer or BBB show will solidify this fact haha.

    I mean how can one stop headbanging to this?
