I've noticed something around my area....most of the metalheads and such are generally really cool people, and are good to help anyone who needs help, and just give you hand if you need it.

The preppy indie/hip hop kids tend to be complete assholes, and make fun of anyone and everyone.

The gangster rap kids tend to try and be hard, but in reality they're just little pushovers that cant hold their own in a fight. No help whatsoever from them.

The band people tend to be quite nice as well....

So, is it just me, or are the people who are less socially accepted generally a lot nicer to everyone? I even noticed it here, many metalheads are actually really cool people.

One day, when the time has come,
The truth will shine, we'll never run.
We both know just how feel,
I'm praying to god that this is real.

It's only chavs around here who tend to be knob heads. All the other sub-cultures are generally friendly.

that is pretty much how it works
because metalheads are nice
because guitar is the path to inner peace and salvation

****IN RIGHT MAN!!!!! Metalheads are where its at, I am considered to be in the "in" group at my school and am the only metalhead in it and recieve many satan jokes, but your statement is true.
#15
Not so much the case around here. I've noticed the thing about the indie folks though. Some of them are very asshole-ish, but some of them are some of the coolest people I've met.
#16
Generally pretty true in my area too.

Maybe it has something to do with letting out your inner asshole through your music rather than on others.
#18
most metalheads I know are also cool mellow people. And most people who listen to rap are arrogant pricks.

I myself am a nice person also, until you piss me off, then it's heavens and monkeyballs!

same around here

example. today a dog was running away from a woman who was walking another dog. I stopped the dog and gave it back to her

I love being kind
Only the blue sky and the green grass
Go on forever in this world
Where seconds feel like eternity
And years pass in blink of an eye

Metalheads are generally pricks to me The ones on here are usually pretty cool though

The nicest people I've met are my mates with the huge influences that span rap, jazz and nu-metal =/

Metalheads in my area were really stupid and jackasses most of the time. Theives and stuff too. Man, I must have the bad end of the metalhead-stick.

But other than that, your observation is generally correct.

I think we have a candidate for the most generalizing thread award of 2008.

Just no.


I just talk to anyone and judge each person on their own, rather than labeling, im not to fond of it, society loves to put things in a little box and put a sticker on it. Its quite annoying.
#27
yeah same, it's just that in my area, most of the Metalheads are dicks and usually the band people are the nice ones. (I'm both band and metal

oh god no, majority of people in my area fall into the 'indie/preppy' kid group you describe, and funnily enough they vary from dickhead to nice peeps, however the few people that listen to metal in my school, are freaking wierdos, they all either are socially inept or have some sort of disorder, but tbh i listen to metal and reasonably well balanced and so are my friends.

SO i think the morale of this long and rather pointless story is that you can't really put people into groups.

Saying that most metal heads are nice is about as well supported statement as 'most metal heads are satanists'.

I have yet to see any study which suggests that there is even a correlation (not cause) between preferred musical genre and 'niceness'.

Most of the metalheads in my school are alrite, there are some that i cant stand, some that arent in high school anymore that are total assholes. I know a few indie kids that are cool, personally im more aligned with the people that play general rock and they're all nice kids

i cant stand the pop punk types in my area. all full of themselves all annoying.
#33
To be honest most people are pretty nice, obviously you get some lemons who couldn't bring themselves to smile if their life depended on it. Even the chavs don't seem to give me hassle.
Which is the exact opposite of when i was in Secondary school.

Most people are nice I find, about half of the metalheads I've met have all been annoying and pretentious to people who don't like metal and pretty damn anti-social but the other half were really nice. I don't think it matters what group people in, there will be nice people and assholes in every group but I find nice people usually outnumber the assholes.
I'm the same as I was when I was six years old
And oh my god I feel so damn old
I don't really feel anything

I find that every subculture has its bad eggs but the majority are quite nice. The only exception has been scene kids, but they're usually ok as long as you don't talk to them for longer than 5 minutes at a time.

Yeah, people who arent "popular" tend to be lower on the douchebag scale.
