Earlier this year it was revealed that the President is a fan of black metal.

Speaking to to leaders from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden at a state dinner, he praised the strengths and exports of each nation. During a speech about the virtues of Finland, President Obama commented on the country’s love of black metal and in fact, his own.

“I do want to point out that Finland has perhaps the most heavy metal bands in the world, per capita, and also ranks high on good governance,” he said. “I don’t know that there’s any correlation there.”
