Metalheads around the globe praised the two men for finding a way to listen to music — but the story wasn't completely accurate.

The two men were not elderly and did not go to the festival, but, instead, went to a party nearby, Itzehoe police said.

The two men, aged 58 and 59, left a home for people with mental health issues to attend a party in Wacken, near the festival. Attendees of the festival called police after finding the two “helpless, disoriented and intoxicated” men waiting for a bus home at a main street stop after the buses had stopped running at 3 a.m. Saturday. Police said alcohol “had contributed to their helpless situation.”

The two men were taken to a medical tent at the festival to get checked out before they were taken to their care home. The two men left in a cab as a police cruiser followed them back to their home about 20 miles away.
