The Most and Least Metal Words

(Photo: Robert Bejil)

What gets your heart pumping and your head banging? It's definitely not lyrics that include words such as "committee" and "approximately."

Iain, a data scientist, blogs at Degenerate State. He conducted a statistical study that determined which words are most and least likely to be associated with heavy metal music. You can see his computational methods and detailed results here.

Nope. Too many syllables. If there's one thing that confuses metal-music listeners, it's big words. For example:
Metal words = 'rock', 'fire' , 'yeah'
Non-metal words = 'anniversary', 'photosynthesis', 'syllable'

The same rule applies to rap.

I don't see why you can't combine the words from the first list with the second to make them more metal. "The beast gonna be the secretary of the university committee, whose veins will burn while his employees will cry through the ashes of their souls." ROCK ON!!!
