We have NRK which is a bit like Norway's version of the BBC. It's a whatchacallit.. Television and media house? With the mandate to provide entertainment, news, information to everyone. So for example they make programs for sami people and other ethnic minorities, deaf people and so on - things that a purely commercially driven media might not be able to or incentivized to do because it wouldn't generate enough income.

There are no commercials on their platforms. Instead, NRK's income comes from a fee imposed on TV owners. By and large, people support it.

For reasons kinda mentioned, NRK also has no political affiliation and so creates these surveys / questionnaires when it's election time.

That's kinda PBS for us and right wing talking heads have been trying to tell people it's communism for years but nobody cares cause nobody watches it anyway.

Metal is less political and more escapist than punk which means it attracts more nerds who would rather play video games than keep up with politics and those types are much easier to radicalize into the far right.

Progressive rock is not immune to this either, most prog fans are aging hippies so a lot of them tend to be libs but I've seen some that are conservative, ironic given the name of the genre.

Since punk is a much more actively political genre the political views of musicians and their fans are more relevant. It's easy to not give a sh*t about the political views of a band whose songs are mostly about wizards and dragons and whatever.

A Narrative Soundscape is a masterpiece of outsider music. The audible mouse clicks changing the presets are pure artistry.
