The World’s Largest Muslim Country Has A Metalhead President Now.

So, after a long, ridiculous election, Indonesia has elected Joko Widodo. While the name may sound like he’s a member of the Jedi Council, he’s actually a devout metalhead, and the new president of the country that has the largest Muslim population in the world. Mic.com has a great spread on the guy and his headbanging, moshing and being with the people. I find music love to be the great unifier, and in a nation that can swing very, VERY conservative, this is a sign that there is progress happening. He’s a fan of Metallica, Napalm Death, Led Zeppelin, and Muslim metal bands, which probably rock face. Whenever a head of state says “Rock is my passion,” I think it’s a good day for music. Rock out President Widodo!
