I mean god damn how many metal songs are featured in mainstream horror movies now a days.
Prime example Rob Zombie is pretty much known to everyone know for his work in movies and everyone that knows about his movies knows about his music.
Black Sabbath played Lolla last year as the headliner. One of the biggest fests in the US got headlined by a metal band, a fest in which 99% of the stuff isn't metal.
