• Black metal drummer "accidentally" elected to town council


    KOLBOTN, NORWAY - A Norwegian death metal drummer has accidentally been elected to his local town council.

    The front man for the band Darkthrone mistakenly agreed to be on a list of backup representatives and assumed that he’d never be called upon.  To ensure this, Glyve "Fenriz" Nagell, posted a picture of him holding his cat and the caption “Please don’t vote for me.” 

    Locals loved the low-key campaign and instead he won a position on the council.  He’ll have to serve as a backup representative for the next four years and is quite unhappy about it, citing how boring it is and the lack of good pay.
