... if they don't like metal, they don't like metal. You writing a speech isn't going to change anything about that.

Write a speech about how you can like what music you want to.

Or actually, don't write a speech at all, because that's just plain stupid and it's not going to change your parents opinions and it will be awkward for everyone involved.

Don't try to convince them that it's super-barbeque-awesome, just get them to understand that it's no worse than pop, reggae or funk.

Tell them nothing bad has ever happened to a guy who listened or played metal. Oh, wait.

what slinkyblue said is correct, their views are different to yours. people tell me that metals great, and i tell them that without blues you wouldn't have metal, and they bag me for listening to blues..

Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

A good one at that.

But yeah if you're planning on writing a speech about that you better write one about coming out of the retarded closet.

TS, if you like metal, you are obviously going to be horrifically murdered in front of a crowd of fans.

If they think metal is going to turn you into an evil rapist then just direct them to The Pit and ask them to make a choice. It's either metal, or The Pit.

Unless they're giving you **** for listening to it then i don't really see the point. And even if they are, just talk to them about it, no need to write a speech. Just tell them that it requires a lot of talent and is actually very melodic and musical and not just guys screaming down a microphone as they probably suspect.

Writing a speech would be gay. Just drop it clear.
BTW, they WILL NOT CHANGE their opinion on metal. They will hate it even more the older they get (probably).
#16
good luck, you're better off talking to a wall. They have a different prospective on this than you and it probably won't change the years of horrific media coverage of metal or any other "extreme' music style, just look at news reports about punk in the early 80s. /thread

His parents probablywere Punks in the early 80's. My god you guys have some really weird misconceptions about your parents. A lot of the metal guitarists you metalheads worship are older than I am. Your parents rocked when they were your age.
Unless they did that whole disco thing in which case well nm.

Write a new speech telling them how awesome it is that they give you free accommodation and food.

And, they also are partial to music of their own era.

Similar to how when I am 50 I'm likely not going to be listening to the pop stations.

well what kind of music do they listen to?

if its classic rock, jazz, blues, country etc., you have a case. if its soft rock or adult favorites that play things like Jason Marz, u dont. actually Jason Marz drops acid, so u actually do lol.

classic rock: drugs, sex
jazz: weed and heroin, sex
blues: drugs and sex
country: beer and fishing

the point is all music is dirty or influenced by something not morally "acceptable". srsly how old r u that ur parents monitor ur music. tell them ur not like the kids at Columbine and ur not influenced by the music or anything. say u know the difference between entertainment and actually acting on what its talking about. plus theres plenty of "safe" metal bands out there, or if they r Christian crazy folk, As I Lay Dying or Haste the Day. and Dave Mustaines Christian, but also an addict, so eh, idk.

Ya I know what you're saying. I have friends that don't realize that there is more than the "classic rock" station they listen too. I don't care to hear Led Zeppelin 20 times a day. I've already heard it 20,000 times. Don't get me wrong. I still throw some Zep on. But it's when I want to hear it. I much rather listen to stuff I haven't heard before.
I guess I just get bored easily.

It should go something like this...

Dear Mother and Father,

Thank you for giving me a place to live and feeding me on a daily basis. I can't say how glad I am to have clothes on my back and parents who are still together in this day and age. Tell you what mom and pop, when I'm eighteen I'll work very hard and have a place of my own that I can live in and create the rules of its domain. There I will listen to my loud music you disapprove of, but in the meantime I'll gladly accept your warm hospitality. I really don't know how good I have it. Thanks

- Love, TS

Dear Mom,

I'll look back on this in a few years in a few years and realize how stupid I was and how silly metal is. Thanks for the advice; I really need to start listening to you more and quit dressing in dark clothes.

Your Son,

Hi!

Or he could say that it's just music, and that even though he lives under his parents roof, he still has the right to listen to whatever he wants (as long as it's at a reasonable volume/he uses headphones).
