Bummer alert! That awesome story about two elderly men escaping a German nursing home to attend the massive Wacken Open Air metal festival over the weekend wasn't all that it was cracked up to be.

Instead, the pair somehow found themselves at a medical tent for festivalgoers on Saturday, which jumpstarted the erroneous metal-elder tale.

On Sunday, we picked up the story from Deutsche Welle that first reported the geriatric German headbangers.

However, after extensive media scrutiny Itzehoe police have released a more accurate picture of what transpired. "However, the men did not have tickets for the festival and were not at any of the festival events".

On top of that, the updated statement from the police department clarifies that the two men never even made it into the Wacken festival.

"They have mental health issues. both went to Wacken [the town] to party and also consumed alcohol", Berndt told NDR, adding that the alcohol had contributed to their "helpless situation".

It took some convincing to get the two men to leave the festival and return to the nursing home, reportedly because they are grown men that should be allowed to go to a music festival if they want to; that's way cooler than sitting in a boring ass nursing home all day, staring at walls and eating mashed potatoes. They apparently missed the last bus.

The two men, as it turns out, are 58 and 59 years old and had escaped "a home for people with mental health issues", according to the Associated Press, before traveling to Wacken, a city roughly 50 miles north of Hamburg.

After speaking with police, the men eventually "willingly" agreed to leave in the taxi, which was followed by a patrol auto. Police reported the incident August 4.
