In my opinion, this study doesn't provide enough proof to back itself up. I am not arguing that heavy metal fans listen to this kind of music to relieve stress or that some metalheads are smart. It's just that it doesn't really prove that most metalheads are smart. I think they just got lucky with the sample of students that they interviewed. What if they took another sample? I don't think that they would get the same results.
Although there are some smart metalheads, there are also a lot that are really dumb. And trust me, most of them are dumb.
