Fans Campaign for Heavy Metal to Become a Recognized Religion

In the country where "Jedi" appears as a category on the census (and there are 390,000 adherents), heavy metal music might likewise become a recognized religion. British fans have mounted a political campaign for official status:

Rock magazine Metal Hammer launched its campaign last week and has already attracted nearly 10,000 followers to a Facebook group.

It has even gained the backing of a metal figurehead, Saxon frontman Biff Byford, whom the magazine says will become the proposed faith's ''world metal peace ambassador'' if the campaign proves successful.

There isn't any such thing as an old rocker, Alex. When someone no longer rocks is when they become old. Is there anything more pathetic than ignorance?
