i was at work a couple days ago(its a retail store and they dont really care what we wear for the most part, so i usually just wear jeans and a band t shirt) and i was wearing a Metallica shirt. this couple in their late twenties comes to my register and im ringing them up and the guy goes, "you like Metallica?" i said yeah and that im seeing them next month. he goes oh yeah i love metallica, but he wasnt being friendly about it he was kinda being a dick and saying things like, "oh yeah i saw them in the early 90's you probably werent even walking yet" and stupid crap like that. he alone wasnt so bad but i've had others that were worse, i was wearing a Zeppelin shirt when this one lady in her late thirties saw that i was wearing it and goes, "Led Zeppelin?? How old are you?" 18. "18??? what do you know about Led Zeppelin? i was at the shows in the seventies before you were even born, you shouldn't even be allowed to wear the shirt"


has anyone had similar experiences?

tl;dr
old fans of old bands that hate young people for liking the music

That's because most adults are dicks.

I once told a Metallica fan I liked Megadeth, and he stabbed me 42 times.

I just get the usual "guns n roses ****ing suck dickhead" from chavs...

Its just wrong...

But they do.

yeah and Metallica fans that think you cant like megadeth and metallica at the same time, or vice versa.
The Mitch Clem formula
1)make jokes about rancid and NOFX (as if they dont already make fun of themselves)
2)make obvious punk puns, possibly related to food
3)make fun of Rancid and NOFX again
4)??????
5)PROFIT (and an army of internet fanboys)

They should be appreciative that at least one other person in today's RnB infested dungpile music charts, someone else in their community likes some music that to be fair, is no where near as popular as it once was (don't get me wrong I'm a metalhead and a classic rock fan).

Therefore I conlude that they suck and you are win.

Iron Maiden fans are the worst, but in a different way.

Haha true story man. I can't wear my Iron Maiden shirts to concerts anymore, unless I feel like making new friends...which I usually don't.

We both know just how feel,
I'm praying to god that this is real.

I was buying a Metallica shirt and the person behind the couter said something like "Oh yeah, I like Enter Sandman too." (Implying that that was the only song I knew) and I went off on a rant about how Justice was their most technically proficient album and how even though St. Anger received good reviews on it's release it is probably the most underrated album from them and it was definately beter than Reload. You know what he da to say?

"Next!"

Usually works the other way for me. Prog fans used to be labbelled geeks, so old men say things like "ooh, marillion? a closet prog fan eh?" when most people my age go "who?"

I think you would have been better off if you had just left it at being a Guitar Hero fan instead of trying to defend St. Anger.

Haha, you like Marillion? Go play dungeons & dragons looser! haha.

it was actually Chris Shifflett of the Foo Fighters who said that to me, true story. I know ehs not an old man, but hes more musically aware than someone who doesn't know who the **** Jethro Tull are.

I know what you mean.. music shouldnt have a time scale.. do u think bach is pissed off that someone likes listening to him.. why should the fans give a shit? there just elitist dicks!

St. Anger is a good album, in pieces.

I went to a concert one time and had on a pink floyd shirt, because it was the week their keyboardist died, and an old man walked up to me and said "you shouldn't be wearing that shirt, you should hang it up or something, do you know what it means?" or something along the lines of that, I was thinking "no I don't know what it means, I'm just a huge fan of prisms"

Do you mean, you possess a dungeons & dragons set?

Or you are technically proficient and would beat me by a large margain?

If the latter, its on.

I hope your "In Pieces" means "Smashed into a dozen little pieces"

I'm not a major Metallica fan, but most of St Anger was trollop. Couple of good songs..But no. Sorry
