Question Are most metalheads anti-punk?

It seems that way, which is strange because punk and metal for me is the best musical marriage there is. For me a lot of the 1st wave BM bands like Venom, Celtic Frost/Hellhammer have a lot of similarities to the punk bands I like - particuarly the more crust/anarcho bands of the 80s. Also Deathcrush era-Mayhem and new Darkthrone, Autopsy/Abscess all show strong punk influences. I think I read somewhere in an interview somewhere that when Mayhem started off they were popular at the punk venues.

Anyway I was just wondering people's views on this? most metalheads I meet seem to disregard punk for being too simplistic and underproduced but old school black metal, grind and death metal is exactly that...it's just they took the extremity to the limits. To be fair those people are usually pretty prejudiced and ignorant to "true" punk anyway in the same way that many punks are the same to metal.

I don't like much punk, which doesn't make me, or for that matter anyone who shares the same view, anti-punk - it's a needlessly inflammatory way of expressing it.

I am a huge metalhead; I LOVE death metal, 80's thrash and hair metal, today's metalcore, and pretty much everything inbetween..But I HATE punk. It just strikes a nerve, and I don't really know why.

I despise the genre with every fibre in my being. None of them can play, they just do chords, their vocals take no technique, I mean it's just shouting, none of the skill of growling and their clothes are so bad. They need to get some Metal style, not those awful mohicans.

this right here, most people like it or don't care for it, but if they have a hate for them, then most likely it's something personal or they are just trying to fit the stereotype of what a "metalhead" should be which makes them what?

Cambyses you have an epic avatar, especially if you've seen the video behind it

I don't hate punk. it's just not one of my favorite genres. I do like a few punk bands (Sex Pistols, NOFX, early Green Day) but I never really got into punk. I definitely do not hate it though.

Im a metalhead but I like alot of different music too, blues, rockabilly, classic rock... (I think "normal" rock is obvious) but I dont like punk that much. I dont hate it, but I wouldnt listen to it voluntarily. However I can stand it much better than absolute shit like pop, rap or techno. To answer the question straight; No, I dont hate punk but I dont like it that much either.

I must say that punk is one of the few musical styles that I often really can't stand, and I'm pretty into metal.

EDIT: ^ I love metal alot
