    The Origin of.... HeadBanging.

    Post  That Guy on Fri Feb 26, 2010 10:40 am

    Headbanging is a type of dance which involves violently shaking the head in time with music, most commonly rock music and heavy metal music.

    The term "headbanger" was coined during Led Zeppelin's first US tour in 1969.[1] During a show at the Boston Tea Party, audience members in the first row were banging their heads against the stage in rhythm with the music.

    Lemmy from Motörhead, however, said in an interview on the documentary The Decline of Western Civilization II: The Metal Years, that the term "Headbanger" may have originated in the band's name, as in "Motorheadbanger".

    Ian Gillan, frontman of Deep Purple, when asked if he invented headbanging he said, "That’s a definite possibility"

    Headbanging has become a staple for everything Heavy Metal. It is usually used in conjunction with "Moshing" and usually only to "Heavy" songs. There are some drawbacks to Headbanging of course. Like hitting someone with your face, spraining your neck, or knocking your glasses/hat/earrings etcetera off your head. Headbanging is out of tune if you were to do it to a ballad.

    So what do ya think of this little history lesson? Should I continue my series of "The Origin of..." for rock type things? Or should I quit now and have this topic deleted. The responses shall determine my course of action.

    Heh.. I don't like headbanging myself, so I don't really care how it was made.

    Headbanging makes me feel dizzy and sick .3.
