Abstract (Swedish)
Det huvudsakliga syftet med denna studie är att undersöka metal som kultur och livsstil. Stu-dien ger även en inblick i hur vanligt det är att lyssna på och spela metalmusik bland gymnasieelever på det estetiska programmet med musikinriktning. Studien baseras på både kvalitativa och kvantitativa studier. Elever från två gymnasieskolor svarade på en enkätundersökning och två lärare intervjuades. Resultatet visar att det finns ett intresse av metalmusik bland eleverna som deltog i
enkätundersökningen. Det visar även att det finns ett intresse av spela metal i skolan. En av informanterna tror även att det kan finnas ett behov av lärare med metalkompetens.
