  1. Poverty is apparently not conducive to metal. A little surprised not to see Japan higher up there: weren’t they the only nation to purchase Lou Reed’s stick-it-to-the-record-company-contract project Metal Machine Music? And what’s up with Bhutan?

  2. Someone once described the distribution of HM to me as
    “Everywhere east of Prague but west of China, and everywhere north of Stoke-on-Trent. Oh, and Pittsburgh”

    Unfortunately, the map doesn’t really match that.

    I guess the idea of *east of Prague and north of Stoke-on-Trent* is supposed to indicate sort of European-but-unsophisticated.
