It is well known in Indonesia that president Joko Widodo is also a fan of metal music. Below he can be seen wearing a Napalm Death t-shirt and at a festival watching Cannibal Corpse whilst donning a Lamb Of God t-shirt.
After Jokowi was elected as president, Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe posted the following message on his Instagram account:
"Incredibly, ladies & gentlemen, the new President of Indonesia is a metal head AND a lamb of god fan. No, this is not a joke, yes the photos are real, yes he digs Napalm Death, Metallica, Megadeth, & lamb of god amongst others- holy crap! THE WORLD'S FIRST HEAVY METAL PRESIDENT! Joko "Jokowi" Widodo, the governor of Jakarta & former furniture salesman who was born into poverty, has won the election. I do not know much at all about Indonesian politics, so I can't comment of their political situation one way or the other, but from what I can tell, Jokowi seems to be a man of the people. Wow. A metal head president- who would have thought? AMAZING.
I mean, can you IMAGINE it? This is THE ONLY PRESIDENT IN THE WORLD with whom you can sit down and argue about which Slayer record is the best. Holy crap, it's too much! I want the Prez to take me on a diplomatic surf summit to Bali. Maybe I can get ambassadorial status. #jokowipleasetakemetoyourislandparadise"
