    A case study: Lanita in extreme metal communities
     
    One topic i find incredibly interesting is when fans of an artist don’t fit the supposed “target demographic” of that artist. The target demographic of Lanas music tends to be boiled down to theys and gays, white girl music, etc. While that may very often be true, I think that narrowing Lanas appeal like that really sells her short. Really, anybody can listen to and become a fan of Lana. Anyone with functioning ears can listen to anything, rather it be pop, rap, country, metal, yodeling waltz polka, etc. It’s up to the individual to determine the meaning of any art via their interpretation. In essay terms, the listener determines their own logos, ecos and pathos for the music they hear. In Lana’s music i’ve found that she has fans in the most unlikely of places. The most bewildering (and often hilarious) example would be fans of Lana within the metal community. By metal, i don’t mean Linkin Park. I mean the loud angry screaming bands in the genres of black metal, death metal, grindcore. Quite possibly the most sonically opposed sounding music compared to Lanas. I’ve seen a few fans of Lana in these communities. Some examples:
     
    “Myke C-Town” is a popular youtuber who has collaborated with big channels TheNeedleDrop and Dead End Hiphop. He has a music channel where he mainly talks about extreme metal. He is a fan of Lanas music and has regarded it well in his reviews. In his Top Albums of 2019 video he ranked NFR the 13th best album of the year:
    He also has Ocean Blvd in his 2023 video.
     
    Extreme metal youtuber “CountBlagorath” is relatively popular in the underground scene. He mainly post vinyl collection updates. In one vinyl updates, he shows off Lana records and give an explanation as to liking her music. Skip to 12:30 to hear him talk about Lana, unless you want to hear him talk about GOAT SEMEN for ten minutes
     
    Musician Stéphane “Niege” Paut, most well known for his project Alcest (which i talked about on the page before) said in instagram comments that he listens to and likes Lana. I can’t find it anywhere, but I remember seeing it.
     
    Speaking of instagram, the instagram page for Profound Lore Records, an extreme metal label, follows Lana on instagram. They occasionally comment on her posts, and when they do they get about 10-15 likes . That shows at least some overlap between the communities.
     
    I know theres plenty of other examples out there, but those are the ones i can think of. Speaking from personal experience, I myself would fit this description as well. Lana is the only pop artist i really like. I’ve heard and dabbled into others, but Lana is only one I can truly say i’m a fan of. If i told people in the metal community i’m a fan of Lana, they would probably look at me like i’m a looney toon. Same thing vice versa, i’d imagine most Lana fans would cover their ears hearing most of my favorite music

    raise your hand if you're tired of people thinking the lizzy grant days were filled with darkness, suffering, and despair and claim it was "problematic" or whatever

    Embarrassing  He’s probably just saying that to stir up clout using the name of a big star. Who gives a fuck about G-Easy in 2024?
