Metal Not So Big in Iran

From popbitch:

Last week Iran's Minister of Culture,Mohamed Hosein Sarrar-Harandi, gave an interview to Spanish newspaper El Pais where he talked about his taste in pop music. Mr Sarrar-Harandi said "I know there are music genres, mostly heavy metal, that can provoke - combined with some hallucinogens - young people to jump out of the windows of cars while driving at high speed. I'm opposed to that kind of music."

Hmmm... He's obviously never heard of the old 'Judas Priest/ Killing off our fanbase makes no financial sense' defence.
