United States President Barack Obama’s commendation of the popularity of the heavy metal music genre in Finland has gone viral on social media.
Obama’s remarks came on Friday as he hosted the leaders of European Nordic countries – Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden – at a summit in Washington DC.
Finland has 53 heavy metal bands per 100,000 people, followed by Sweden with 37, while Norway has 27, according to research by a Reddit user, who took the listing of bands by country from the Encyclopaedia Metallum and calculated the number of bands per 100,000 people using numbers from the CIA World Factbook.
Thoughts on this?
