MTV Blog Advises Guys to Visit Metal Concerts to Pick Up Ladies
MTV has come under fire from the metal community after publishing a blog post that encourages guys to visit metal shows to pick up girls. The article, which ran on MTV's GuyCode, notes that more and more women (or "cute girls" as the article refers to them) are frequenting concerts by bands like Dying Fetus and and Pig Destroyer, before telling readers:

"Ultimately, it doesn't matter why cute girls are there - they're there. So get your ass to a metal, punk or hardcore show."

The piece then goes on to offer such advice as:

"... Single metal girls often travel in packs, and it's easier to approach such a crew with a pal in tow. Plus, it'll help mask your ulterior motives, you head-bobbing lurker, you…"

And tells guys to make sure they know their s--t about metal before attending.

As Axl Rosenberg of MetalSucks notes, the article effectively states "you should be going to metal shows JUST because it's a place to meet women BUT make sure you do some research on Wikipedia first." Other commentators, such as St. Vitus Bar, who hosted the Pig Destroyer concert that the MTV author was attending, have criticized the piece for its "blatant sexism" and "misrepresentation."

When asked for a response to the piece, author Ethan Fixell noted "it was written for a specific comedy-driven blog - if it were for a music-driven site, I would have written a much different piece."
