I had a hard drive once, MFM or RLL I cannot recall, which periodically would make an odd RRRRRRRR noise (possibly due to lack of calibration or vibration reduction somewhere) to which I referred as my "heavy metal drive".

Contemporary techno is rather reminiscent of 1541 read/write problems. I aver that technology originally spawned the term "head banging", which completes the cycle of metal versus techno. Thokling (talk) 13:04, 22 September 2013 (UTC)

That example music was obviously created after the comic, and could not be what the comic was referring to. Benjaminikuta (talk) 02:17, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

The title text was referring to the concept, which obviously existed prior to the comic existing. It's irrelevant that the example used was created after this comic. -Pennpenn 06:04, 22 December 2015 (UTC)
If it obviously existed prior to the comic existing, it would nice to link to it here. I came to this page after finding the above link as the first hit on google, and no other obvious links to examples. Having written that, I did discover this. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
