Bizarre goings on in Norway when a poll to find the symbol for the tail fin for the national airline nearly didn’t go the way the organisers planned.

The airline decided to have a deceased Norwegian to be painted on the planes and set up a poll which saw deceased black metal legend Euronymous of the band Mayhem as the front-runner in the contest that would’ve had his likeness on the tailfin of Norwegian Air jets.

Norwegian Air recently announced that they would honor a deceased Norwegian hero by putting their face on the tailfin of their jets. Despite the large margin by which the guitarist ”” real name is Oystein Aarseth ”” led the pack of candidates, he has now been removed from the running.

According to The Gauntlet, Aarseth was not included on the short-list of candidates that were presented as the finalists because his family asked that he be excised from the campaign. “Naturally we respect their wishes,” said a relieved Norwegian Air spokesperson.

The airline is most likely breathing a sigh of relief that their jets will not carry the face of the notorious guitarist, whose association with 1990”²s church burnings would’ve no doubt hurt their image. Euronymous also stirred controversy by taking pictures of his bandmate Per “Dead” Ohlin after his 1991 suicide and making necklaces from pieces of his skull. Nothing about that says, “fly the friendly skies.”

Euronymous was brutally murdered in 1993 by his former friend Varg Vikernes, who stabbed the 25-year old guitarist 23 times.

  7. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
