The most Swedish man of all time gets disability benefits for heavy metal addiction

Meanwhile in Sweden… Roger Tullgren, described as a man with long hair, tattoos and a penchant for jewellery that looks like skulls, after consulting three psychologists, managed to get his obsession with heavy metal music classified as a disability that qualifies him for supplemental disability benefits.  The man, Roger Tullgren, has been unable to hold down a full time job between being compelled to “show his heavy metal style” and attend over 300 concerts last year alone.

Tullgren has been trying to get his heavy metal addiction classified as a mental handicap for the past decade.  Now, thanks to Sweden being a utopia of both social democracy and metal, he will be awarded state disability benefits to supplement his part time dishwashing job.

Rock on Sweden, rock on.
