The last sentence in your post is the only answer you need.

Now, if you're asking why do most people dislike it then I can give you a good guess.

It's probably because the genre tries to center itself around being aggressive and loud, two things that most people are uncomfortable with. That doesn't make it bad, it just makes it more of an acquired taste than more popular genres of Music.

I grew out of it a while ago. I still listen to it occasionally but definitely not enough to call myself a metal head.

Brothers that stare at their shoes while butt grinding on each other violently.

I like a lot of metal. It's got the most energy and some of the coolest fans.(Spare for the overly existent nobhead elitests).

My problems with Metal:
Firstly tremelo picking rhythm is pretty uninteresting. Downtuning sounds stupid. Having no melody makes it boring.
Also Death Metal, Cannibal Corpse in particular. They get popular off the gimmick that is their ******ed song titles. Who can actually relate to "Entrails ripped from a virgins cnut"?


All that aside there are some good metal bands. The best gigs are from the heaviest metal.

Metal is great. I don't understand all the hate for it. I mean, there are some things that people say that are valid, like the general wankery of a lot of prog, but the genre as a whole seems to get far more hate than it deserves, and I think people who refuse to listen to metal are really missing out.

So you like a lot of metal, but dislike some of the most important elements of the genre? That is like saying you like a lot of jazz but hate syncopation and chromaticism or saying you like a lot of drum and bass but hate break beats and subbasslines or saying you like a lot of bluegrass but hate the sound of banjo, dobro, fiddle, guitar, mandolin, and upright bass.

lol, no

If you tune to drop A or some shit just to chug, yea whatever. But most of the time it fits the style of the song really well and it would sound completely different if it was in standard.

Half step down is the best tuning anyway

Fanbase is total ass. The image is disgusting. Vast majority of the music itself is awful. I listen to like 2-3 metal bands now.

There is plenty of metal without these elements....right?

Punk is a far superior genre.

I will happily meet up for a fight with any UG'er who disagrees.

You sound so eager to provoke someone, you are like the Psychos from Borderlands...especially that Face McShooty guy.

Definitely.

Here's proof.

The best punk band vs the best metal band.
