At a time when the world seems to be in turmoil, it’s good to see our leaders are listening to some damn great music. In a recent act of geo-politically inclined good will, Denmark’s PM, Lars Løkke Rasmussen gifted Indonesia’s President Joko Widodo with an epic Master of Puppets vinyl box set.
President Joko has expressed quite obviously his love for all things metal having, reportedly seen wearing a Napalm Death shirt in the past. In saying that, Kendall Jenner has also been spotted wearing Slayer t-shirts so who knows anymore…
The act of inter-continental support was signed by Metallica’s drummer, Lars Ulrich and both leaders proudly tweeted the exchange.

Maybe Malcom Turnbull would do a better job if he listened to more Megadeth?
