Im a metalhead so i dont get why people hate it. like when they hear metal there like "turn that **** off!" and crank up redneck country **** (my opinion)

anyways, im not trying to get everyone to like metal. if you dont like it you dont like it

people's image of satan worship being the topic of all metal songs. also, generalizing metal as growling

Yea, Sublime is a great band. You have an Underoath icon, so I think your opinion doesn't matter.

That's because they don't know what it is.

Same thing goes for your "redneck country ****" description.
#11
Because the music does not appeal to them.

You know a music scene is fucked up when it becomes difficult to keep track of who killed who, who committed suicide and who alledgedly engaged in cannibalism.

Metal tends to be less accessible then alot of other genres, and thus they can't get into it.
No gods, no countries, no masters.
More guitar, less Ultimate-Guitar.

no one's denying it. This is a pointless thread. you might as well ask why you LIKE it.
The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.
#17
maybe because its not as suddle, maybe because its not as easy listening as most music, maybe its just a difference in peoples taste.

the only thing that matters is what you think. Especially if someone tells you metal is emo. There a fuckin tool anyways. You should be glad that not everyone likes it. Could you imagine a world where everyone liked metal? that would take all the coolness out of it.

Yep, all a matter of taste. Obviously I enjoy metal, however there is definitely some I can't stand and also a lot of bands that I used to listen to but have grown out of completely over the years and have no ear for at all now. Looking back at them bands in particular I can see why some people may call it noise.

You obviously havnt been on this forum too long... everyone likes metal.

In the words of Judas Priest though, "They Just Don't Understand!"
#21
from a teenager's perspective I'd say that either people don't like it because it's not popular, want to fit in or can't handle the intensity. I personally love metal. Also like atr, i don't know why people label it as emo, probably because of the heaviness and the lyrical content.
#22
Because they like Taylor Swift songs, and who cares if they don't like Metal, we do and you know stand strong by it, because as you can see it has been running strong for almost 40 years. Also, people don't like bands that talk about serious issues and have good lyrics, but like the bands that are simple and make terrible music (Jonas Brothers). That is why people don't Metal, they live in a society where an E chord throughout a whole damn song is described as good.

EDIT: When I was talking about the Jonas Brothers, I forgot to mention that they sing about their broken hearts, and how their dying terribly from loneliness, with their womanly chastity rings with which they wear so proudly. Even though they got the whole web of chicks chasing them down and trying to give them all a blowjob.

This is thread is pointless, therefore to give it a meaning it has now become the Silenius fellation thread.

I'm glad the mainstream hates it.

Makes it more special knowing that I am the only kid who doesn't think that Trivium is metal at my school.

Let the impure lesser human beings listen to their mainstream garbage.


You should be an hero and tell them that metal is the best.
#31
Well if you wanted an actual answer to that question, a forum full of people who love metal isn't exactly the best place to ask, is it

wrong. beleive it or not, metal isn't some kind of mystical cult that only the elite of society can enter. it's a musical genre like any other, and people like it or not based on their musical preferences, not on a true meter that is determined based on their inner strength and hatred of mainstream religion.

I never thought I'd post anything on this forum but I saw this thread and said damn I got to write in it. I live in a small quad at college with three "Bro s". They're all my good friends but since I'm outnumbered all I hear is r and b, pop and rap. Neyo, Lil Wayne and TI. Whenever they hear any music come out of my computer they immediatly dump on my life and say that I want to kill a small baby because i listen to metal. Well after 5 months of living there now I do! I can't take having to here ****ty ryhmes all day. Basically my point is that as much as everyone says that they're glad metal isn't mainstream. I'm telling ya, I wish life could be just a little bit more like metalocalypse and a little less of a bunch a brojobin' idiots who can't listen to a song without money and bitches in it.

:'( I r so downtroddn and misundrastod :'(

EDIT: On a more serious note, for everyone saying they wish metal were mainstream: Think about it this way, with it being an underground genre we already have an astounding amount of horrible bands, now imagine if 5 times as many people liked metal as now... 5 times as many horrible bands worshiping bands that don't deserve much worship in the first place.

maybe the jonas brothers are fags or something, and besides that, if half the fu**ing idiots at my school liked metal it would probably kill the entire thing for me. i ****ing love blaring cemetery gates and having everyone look at me like i'm the one who's nuts.

i have no problem with more people liking metal, but if it were the suck-up pussies at my school, then i'm gonna have to be honest, it would detract some of the magic from it. these are the type of people that listen to rhiana and all that bull****.
