What to tell someone who doesn't understand and mocks metal?

Hi everyone,

I am the only one in my family who likes heavy metal (I do listen to other kinds of music as well). Apart from me there is my father who enjoys listening to music. But to softer stuff. And that is all. The others may listen to what is on air.

There is my brother who thinks I am weirdo on every point. He does not know what is heavy metal. He could only think of Marilyn Manson, Metallica or Rammstein. I think that is all the bands he "knows". To him, they are all the same. It is just noise with someone screaming over it. And they all scream the same way. For him, you may listen to the bands above when you are 15 and then you grow up.

Earlier this afternoon I was listening to some Aborted and at one point he entered my room. He said that it was all noise and blahblah, that the guy should see a doctor and check his throat to fix it (yeah it is not sung with the throat but anyway...), that there is no lyrics and that anything in the noise is comprehensible. When there was a blast beat he asked why did they speed up the song. Just before he left he finished by saying that in a few years I will think back of how stupid I was to listen to that sh**.

I do not care what he is thinking. It is not going to change my mind. Well it is not exactly that I do not care, I am actually wondering how is it possible to be so narrow-minded...

Tell him it's music, so deal with it.
Stop caring about what he thinks.

Stop caring.

Alternatively, strap him into a chair and force him to listen to Metal at full volume for at least a day.

That might well turn out to be true. And even if it isn't, you'll look back and think how stupid you were to give a shit about other people's opinions on music.

Don't tell them anything.

What do you tell a man who doesn't like chocolate ice cream? The matter is equally trivial.

Dude, getting mad at them and posting on the internet about it is just about the least metal thing you could ever do.

Grow a pair and kill them already.

Tell him, "don't insult my tastes, I won't insult yours." Then play something melodic like Maiden or Blind Guardian to disprove the majority of his points.

No, he's trying to disprove that it's not music for 15 year olds.
