Black metal legend Gylve 'Fenriz' Nagell of the band Darkthrone will have to spend four years as a back-up representative for his local town council in Kolbotn.
The artist agreed to be on a list of candidates because he figured in no way would he be elected.
In fact, his whole campaign was just a picture of him holding his cat along with a sign that read: “Please don't vote for me.”
Now, he will have to step in when the “usual people who go to the big meetings are sick or something. Then I have to go sit there and feel stupid among the straight people.”
Speaking to local media, Nagell said, “My campaign was a picture of me holding my cat saying, 'please don't vote for me.' But people just went nuts. After the election, the boss called me and told me I was a representative. I wasn't too pleased, and I'm not too pleased about it. It's boring. There's not a lot of money in that, either, I can tell you.”
Just goes to show you that sometimes it's better to just not enter politics.
