QUESTION OF THE DAY:

Where did the term "heavy metal," used in relation to music, come from?

ANSWER:

"Heavy metal" was once used exclusively by the military to indicate something that was heavily fortified by tanks and guns. In 1968, a journalist for Cream magazine used this expression to describe a performance of the band MC5 from Detroit. Soon the same magazine was using the term for many other bands of that era, and it caught on in the broader community.
