Are you into Norwegian Black Metal?

I'm not, but I read an article on BuzzFeed about it the other day. I was curious about this strange, subversive sub-genre so I checked out some YouTube videos. I couldn't stop laughing. They take themselves very seriously with their black clothes and their Satan worship and atmospherics and all that. But it's the same old silly heavy metal posturing it ever was. They like to shock and horrify, certainly. But I have the feeling that if you drop any one of these boys into a gay bar they'd run shrieking for the hills. It all just seems kind of silly to me. Something that ugly, nerdy, depressed teenage white boys like. Or am I missing some larger cultural significance?
