Well, not MINE, but I knew so many guys like this in my teens and twenties. Thing is, you gotta love these kind of guys 'cause what they lack in brains and ambition they make up for in lust for life and overall heart. The "headbanger" mentality hasn't been well-represented in most Hollywood movies (Bill and Ted's, Wayne's World et al). As silly as it may seem, headbangers take their lifestyle choice very seriously and -- even if they are not always eloquent enough to put it in such poignant terms -- they are consciously rebelling against conformity and the pressures of modern life to do everything but enjoy life and have a good time.
Even better, it was all filmed within two hours of my place. Just give'r!!!
