Okay, so why do heavy metal bands such as Motorhead, Blue Oyster Cult and Motley Crue affect umlauts?

Discuss..

That's about it, Chris.
Will leave time for anyone else to have a go.
Then offer an explanation out of the paper.

Yup. You got it guys (To lend the band logo a sinister air of Gothic, Germanic menace, and an umlaut refers to a diacritic put over the letter "u" - Blue Oyster Cult were the first, apparently, the idea being first mooted by the writer Richard Meltzer while talking to songwriter Sandy pearlman...).

Not many people know that........

So - how do you explain:

Haagen-Dazs ice cream with the umlaut above the first "a" when there were no such persons called Haagen or Dazs?
