No, but Malcolm was probably the first 'back' headbanger.
You look at the majority of any AC/DC footage, and the groove that he plays forces every downbeat for his neck to snap backwards.
He stomps his right foot with the downbeat and he simultaneously rocks his head back, kinda like slamming on the brakes while you push yourself back in the seat.
I went their for my prom.
So much fail in this thread.
Origin[/h]The origin of the term "headbanging" is contested. It is possible that the term "headbanger" was coined during Led Zeppelin's first US tour in 1969.[SUP][/SUP] During a show at the Boston Tea Party, audience members in the first row were banging their heads against the stage in rhythm with the music.
Ozzy Osbourne and Geezer Butler of Black Sabbath are among the first documented headbangers, as it is possible to see on a band's concert in Paris, 1970.[SUP][/SUP]
Lemmy from MotÃ¶rhead, however, said in an interview on the documentary The Decline of Western Civilization II: The Metal Years, that the term "Headbanger" may have originated in the band's name, as in "Motorheadbanger".
Ian Gillan, frontman of Deep Purple, when asked if he invented headbanging, said: "That’s a definite possibility", although he claimed that "it was not really head banging — more hair floating".[SUP][/SUP]
The practice itself and its association with the rock genre was popularized by guitarist Angus Young of the band AC/DC.[SUP][/SUP]
[h=2]Health issues[/h]In 2005, Terry Balsamo, Evanescence guitarist, incurred a stroke from headbanging.[SUP][/SUP]
In 2007, former Moloko vocalist Roisin Murphy suffered an eye injury during a performance of her song "Primitive" when she headbanged into a chair on stage.[SUP][/SUP]
In 2009, Slayer bassist/vocalist Tom Araya began experiencing spinal problems due to his aggressive form of headbanging, and had to undergo anterior cervical discectomy and fusion.[SUP][/SUP][SUP][/SUP]
In 2011, Megadeth guitarist Dave Mustaine said that his neck and spine condition, known as stenosis was caused by many years of headbanging.[SUP][/SUP]
Slipknot Sampler Craig Jones once suffered from whiplash after an extended case of powerful headbanging.
I remember going to see Priest with Megadeth and Testament opening. Surrounded by a sea of morons violently banging there head and not watching the show. I noticed it more with the Thrash fans.
Yeah. Yer welcome anyway.
When I was a young man we would see Priest, Maiden and the Scorps and not much headbanging in the audience, then these young wipper snappers Thrashers came around and stole the mosh pits from the punks and ruined everything. Get off my lawn you punks!
