Heavy Metal 101 is celebrating its tenth anniversary at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) in Cambridge, MA. This crash course in all things heavy metal will have you head banging, air guitaring, and devil horn raising in no time. Learn everything you ever wanted to know about heavy metal, including who’s awesome, who isn’t, why louder does mean better, and so much more!

Topics include: musicology; culture and iconography; history and development; why JUDAS PRIEST rules; why METALLICA used to; and why Lemmy IS God.

This multimedia extravaganza promises to cover everything you ever wanted to know about heavy metal.

If you think that POISON is metal (they're not), that ümlaüts häve nö pläce in the Ënglish längüage (they do), and can't tell the difference between BLACK SABBATH and BON JOVI (hell, if you think BON JOVI is listenable, for that matter), then you can't afford to miss this series. This is guaranteed to be the most brutal class ever offered at MIT!

2015 Schedule of Events (all events held in 14N-313 at 5:00 PM)
