Because one time i listened to metal,and a person said to turn it off. And they put on the radio and there was this song about a mickey mouse watch,i kid you not.

Why do we metalheads always get hate directed towards us?
#2
Because we are too metal for them to handle.

Because alot of this look this this




And ya know I guess it's not the most appealing type of person

And I hate people who hate metal because it's metal.

At band practice once I start playing some megadeth riffs to our drummer (who is a douche who loves razorlight and other pop rock bands and is making me rethink about staying in the band) says he really likes those riffs and thought we should do the rest of the song. He then asked who it was by and I said Megadeth then he said actually we better not made me rage

I don't know, but it pisses me off that bands like Nickelback and Three Days Grace are ruling the airwaves. Most progressive metal bands have skill that overpowers every radio rock band and even some of the greats i.e. Slash and Angus Young. It seems in only to get recognition you have to be a virtuoso in the metal scene. Other than that, no one cares for it. Sad but true.

Because some metalheads are assholes. Also, some fans of metal are stupid and don't know how to act in public.

That's why metal is frowned upon.

Because the lyrics are often dark and doomy and a lot of metalheads are assholes. I listen to metal myself but there are some dickheads out there all the same.

>implying metal is good

No, there is some good metal. But most of it is garbage produced by garbage "musicians." Just like any other genre. One thing I hate about metal and metalheads is that they are so narrow-minded about other music.

i.e. "DIMEBAG IS THE BEST GUITARIST EVER" "ZAKK WYLDE IS THE BEST GUITARIST EVER"

Anyone who says that those two are the greatest guitarists ever have not listened to anything besides metal. Which is also funny, because there is no such thing as "the greatest guitarist ever."

Because it's a genre filled with terrible artists and cheesy songs.


I normally don't take offense to this, but since it's coming from someone with such unreliable and near satanic traits, such as enjoying anime, I don't think I can allow you to live.
#17
Because you're a pussy and didn't just tell them to f**k off. That would be truly metal.

It's just stigma.

Like i've had someone class Muse's Supermassive Blackhole as 'metal' - to which i guffawed at.

Each genre is separately looked down upon depending on social circle, the beauty of your initial post is that you got cussed for your taste in music, and you then chose to repeat the favor by then bitching about their choice in music whilst claiming your music is better

Metal isn't the most accessible genre of music out there.

Also, you're just another metal fan with the perception that they are "bullied" for their taste in music. I like metal too, but I can still see it from the perspective of a person who doesn't like metal. Grow up.

Because 98% of metulhedz are absolute shits that need a serious ass kicking. It's really unfortunate in all honesty, because there are a lot of really cool metal fans and a lot of really good metal bands out there.

its not really about skill though. being able to play mental chord progressions in obscene time signatures doesn't exactly mean that the music itself is any good. i enjoy crazy music but i can understand why people don't, and because people don't like it fans of these type of bands go postal and say things like "YOU JUST CAN'T APPRECIATE GOOD MUSIC".

but on another subject, Nickelback should be made illegal.
#25
because of the media portraying the correlation between psychopathic behaviour and metal music. about 4 weeks ago some kid murdered a guy in a hotel with ritualistic bullshit like blood pacts, and he left behind a slipknot disk in the crime scene.

it's generally shit like that that people misinterpret.

also, a lot of metal is shit.

also, music is extremely subjective.

it's a lot of shit man, just headbang your way through it.

Stereotypes. The stereotypical metalhead is a satan-worshipping narrow-minded stoned douchebag hipster. Even though this is not the case for all of us, there are enough of these to make a stereotype.

If metalheads would shut the **** up about it every once in a while, I wouldn't be as judgmental about it.

Because some people are idiots who think it's smart to make fun of metal. A few years ago people in the Pit used to think it was cool to listen to it and they'd look down on people who didn't. Basically the Pit is full of idiots.

Yup, Indie is the most listened to and respected genre in the Pit, and metal is super underrated here.

Firstly, that guy was obviously trolling.

Secondly, people who go around this forum yelling 'YOU HAVE TO SAY IT'S YOUR OPINION IT'S SUBJECTIVE!!!" are really boring. It's a discussion about music, and if music is subjective then it's impossible to make an objective comment about its quality. That it is an opinion being expressed is implied by the subject matter.

Metal is all about accessibility. I just bought a cassette that only 50 were produced, ever. You honestly tell me that you've never heard of "Bronvie - Mystic Dawn of Death" before.

I don't think metal is looked down upon. Mind you it's hard to take a lot of metal heads seriously.
