MTA Headbanger

One of the great, but also terrible, things about NYC is the plethora of music that surrounds you... every street corner, bodega, blasting out of your neighbors earbuds and thumping through your walls. If you're anything like me, you have probably seen plenty of amateur vocalists and MCs singing along to songs on the train. But how many times have you seen someone RAGE OUT to a song, headbanging furiously, air drumming, singing, and guitar playing... and keep it up for ELEVEN MINUTES. (Probably even longer, this video is edited.) Check out video of that below.

Ah, the power of metal. Eat your heart out Waxahatchee.

UPDATED I guess the joke's on me... he's singing along to Black Veil Brides (thx Doug?)

So, since it's Black Veil Brides then he is just a kid not on his ritalin, right?

Actually...the joke is on Doug for being able to recognize a Black Veil Brides song...

Anyone else find these "Big Dane" comments just plain sad?

I knew a guy who spent years trying to get 15 seconds of fame for this kind of behavior but it was before cell phones and social networking so the only people who knew were the people who saw him do it in person...


...but we've all known a guy like this...right?

If you don't know someone like this personally, you're boring. Worse, your friends are boring.

This is great! We need more people like this to come back to NYC. The city has become fucking lame with a bunch of boring people.

Can't believe there are still Beavis and Buttheads still out there after all these years.

3:06 #1- Agreed. Thanks to the influx of people who've moved here, a very accurate representation of said group comprise about 90% of the hits on this site.

For $112 I better get a show as good as this one on my next Subway ride. Fuck the MTA.

Best promo vid BVB could have ever hoped for.

That guy = more of a real Metalhead than people who like the bands on this years SXSW "Metal" shows.

AND THAT'S THE TRUTH, RUTH!

This is cool but what pisses me off is when the guy recording says 'no one is recording' at around 10:39. Admit that you are recording, don't be taking your subject for granted.
