Did anyone else notice that this was written by Dr. Hetfield (James Hetfield from Metallica), I'm not sure if that's just a coincidence or not. But more to the point I'm not surprised that listening to heavy metal increases testosterone because some of my favourites lift my mood if I'm feeling a bit down.
