advice about eating mussels

When I lived in Maine, I was told that you shouldn't eat mussels that don't open when they are cooked, because that indicates that the mussel was dead before it was cooked. My husband disregards this rule, and so far he is still alive. Is this just an old wive's tale or is there good reason to avoid unopened mussels?
