Solty Dog: I always preferred the pit over headbanging. More primal and dangerous. Besides, a little pain never hurt anyone.
Fupac: Dr. Ariyan Pirayesh IslamianThat is one helluva name.
Fuggin Bizzy: What the WTF. Headbanging has a much higher likelihood of farking up your neck, though. Just ask Dave Mustaine.I headbanged real hard - once - at a high school dance when I was a freshman. It hurt pretty bad for a week afterward. Luckily, I was still young enough I could heal from anything. I've taken it easy with the headbanging ever since./Also prefers the pit.//40 though, so I might have to start taking it easy soon.
doglover: Does it come with real Lemmy Smell Oil?
The Googles Do Nothing: After a good headbanging session my neck hurts more than my head....I've seen Motorhead two or three times as an opener for somebody else. I'm not sure since they always sound the same to me and I always wished they'd stop after a few songs since they sound so damn tinny. Lemmy takes all the low end off his bass. At one show after they finished I was in line for the pisser and there was a dad and his 10 year old son in front of me:"Dad?""Yes son?""I can't hear anything. My ears don't work anymore."
abhorrent1: Don't know about my brain, Motorhead does make my ears bleed though./they're awful
Parallax: Sigh, kids today. BMH.

reveal101: That's negligent parenting, verging on (unintended) abuse. That kind of hearing damage to a growing person can have lifetime effects. I knew a guy in his thirties who got permanent tinnitus after standing in front of a speaker array at a Gwar concert. Kids shouldn't be rock concerts without earplugs, frankly.

I knew a guy in his thirties who got permanent tinnitus after standing in front of a speaker array at a Gwar concert. Kids shouldn't be rock concerts without earplugs, frankly.Not to mention all the drinking and "funny smelling smoke" that is a mainstay at those kind of shows. What's even funnier is the dirty looks that they give people who are passing a joint around, as if their evil stare is going to stop them. What the hell do you expect at an Ozzy concert? But your little precious just HAD to go because that one song is like his favoriteist ever.Here's a tip to you parents out there with young children who are ignorant to how concerts work: it is mob rules. The security staff are there to stop people from getting hurt, not to snatch joints out of people's hands. Unless the band is a bunch of geriatrics, and the crowd is mostly 45+ going to see a blast from the past, there's going to be pot smoking. Indoors, outdoors, smoking or non.Bottom line: Don't take your kids to rock/metal concerts unless they are old enough to understand or you are a good enough parent that you can tell your child "You'll understand when you get older, now let's enjoy the show! You want some popcorn or something?!" and they forget all about. You making a big deal about it is only going to make the child more curious. And yes; ear plugs. Tinnitus SUCKS, let me tell you./ Many years ago I was at a Slayer show with my girlfriend and we lit up a joint. After a minute or so the young couple in front of us started turning around and giving us dirty looks. They were probably 18 or so, a few years younger than us. Dressed in like... bar clothes, I guess. All I could think was, "What the hell are you two doing here?"
