Where To Start? Swedish Parents Want To Name Kid Metallica


You know I love me some Sweden around here, but I guess I'm too damn 'Murican to understand what business it is of the National Tax Board what I choose to name my kid. Those countries all over Scandinavia--and Europe, too!--and Japan, for that matter, they're all like commie fascists when it comes to names from the approved National list.

That said, I can also understand why Stockholm parents Michael and Karolina Tamaro are so intent on naming their newborn daughter Metallica. "It suits her," says Karolina, by which I assume she means all the kid does these days cry and whine and annoy the hell out of the neighbors.

If Metallica doesn't fly, maybe they could try RIAA.
