Interesting Map of the Week

Metal bands per capita!

So, what does this tell us?  Besides that the vikings of the past are metal-heads?  I would have guessed that metal would be less popular in the Mideast than in Sub-Saharan Africa.  I also would have guessed more metal bands per capita in the former Soviet space. 

Thanks to

Do notice that similarities of metal band density do not appear correlated with peace, unlike the McD's peace. What other social science observations can we glean from this?

Observations: people who live in states in which half of their income is taxed and experience six months of darkness and six months of light really prefer music that makes one want to smack his/her head off a wall :P
