Heavy metal began as a working class music and it's never really removed itself from that. Maybe with future generations it'll grow to become another era in classical music which will then elevate it higher than how it is already percieved

Lower class in what way?

People these days prefer rap and all that, the stuff that, in my opinion, is easy to write.

Why does metal feel the need to defend itself from no existent attacks all the time? Who's calling metal low class?

It's probably due to the image of the metal bands. Most rock music has this "underground" kinda image, just like how rappers are "gangsta". The top artists are multi-millionaires, they're the furthest you could get from gangsta or underground.

Quote by idkputanamehere
because of the song structure and the use of too much distortion

this.

if you're looking for technical mind-fuckery, metal isn't really where you'd look. And because styles have been ripped and re-done so much it's sounding unoriginal

It's not a lower form of music if you're into metal.

It's only considered a lower form of music because people outside of the metal community don't like it.

As much as I hate sounding like a suck up, especially to mods (nothing personal), this honestly sums it all up perfectly.

Started in the factories, and now days it's pretty much a more general version. Metal isn't really something that you can fake your way into, it's always been the "work your guts out for life and then maybe make enough money to rent your own apartment" style of music. Between that, and the fact that metal is varying levels of NOIIIISEEEE, it's just got the overall vibe of a genre that only the "lesser" would be interested in.

It's not like it really matters, because anyone who's actually spent time listening to some of the various forms of metal will at least be able to appreciate the compositional genius that is involved in some metal bands.

Thank you! People are always jumping to the defence of metal from some imaginary attack. It's one of the the world's biggest and most popular genres, owning a massive amount of CD and gig ticket sales. It's not lower class in any sense, but metalheads like to think it is.

my parent consider it random rambling

A lot of music can be perceived as random rambling, if you personally don't see the importance of something someone is saying, isn't that what it is? A lot of times music is stereotyped by a few musicians as well, so people judge whole genres based on what is most popular. For example, a lot of today's top charting rap/hip-hop songs are what i perceive as rambling, due to the repetitive lyrics about money/hoes/imagery, but i don't judge the whole genre or the people who listen to it by these most well-known songs. But since today's world is too judgmental, some people frown upon a whole culture/type of music without a second thought.

Because metal, for the most part, is angry, aggressive music. People seem to enjoy feeling like they're above anger and aggression like that. I don't really see anybody saying that metal is 'low-class' or anything, but they kind of treat it that way sometimes, especially amongst the older generations. Younger people don't seem to do it as much. It's never really bothered me, though. I enjoy it, so I'll listen to it, regardless of what other people say.

I seriously believe that the chaps that complain about metals bad name are fans of metal for precisely that reason. It's got a bad name.

I know all metal fans aren't like this, but you know what kind of kid I'm talking about.

I don't care that because I play acoustic most of the time people expect me to own a trilby hat and be a douche bag, because i know i don't and I'm not.
