Think I'll lose my mind if I don't find something to pacify

Researchers in England have found that teenaged fans of heavy metal music had lower self-esteem than fans of other types of music. A follow-up study with a small group on honor students revealed that they listened to metal to relieve pressure and other bad feelings. (Hey, sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.)

So, far from causing depression, heavy metal music can actually be life-affirming. Makes sense to me – a good dose of metal certainly can get your motor running.

OK, I’ll stop now.

So...honor students are part of the group that has lower self esteem? You'd think that as a group, they would have higher self esteem - obvioulsy individuals would vary, but you'd think the group as a whole would not be classified as having lower self esteem...interesting. \m/
