(Classic Rock) Roger Tullgren has been an internet sensation several times over, as the story of his addiction to heavy metal continues to be recycled by news outlets since it first appeared in 2007.

Swedish citizen Tullgren was able to persuade officials that his inability to stop listening to heavy music made it impossible for him to find regular work and amounted to a disability.

Six years ago they agreed and paid him income support of several hundred pounds a month. At the time he said: "I have been trying for ten years to get this classified as a handicap. I spoke to three psychologists and they finally agreed that I needed this to avoid being discriminated against."

But after his story made the rounds again recently, he revealed his payments stopped in January 2012. Read what he had to say and find out if he found a job.
