Are Heavy Metal Bands Like Software Developers

This one is for Andrew who essentially threw the gauntlet down (whether he knew it or not) for me to write this post.

So are members of heavy metal bands like software developers?

I am going to say yes, and here are the reasons:

  • They are both creative (or at least we like to think we are)
  • Both can have serious attitudes
  • They don't like the way the previous generation did things (big band and COBOL)
  • Like to put together complicated combinations from the basic parts of their art

Ok, it might be a little weak, but we are just having fun here.

Here's another important factor:

All the new guys on the block (devs or musicians) seem to get the older generation all riled up.

Nice joke! It will be funny, if some famous metal bands start their business as software developers. :)
And we creat a heavy metal band :)
