What's the point in being in a band if you only care about getting laid?

WOW you're a douchebag

If by start a metal band, you mean start a crabcore-autotuned shit band with swept hair, tight pants, and same V neck shirt as your other band mates THEN yes, girls might come to your show.

I've been a few metal shows and there were hot girls there.

I believe you have answered your own question.
#13
Yeh to be honest you do sound a bit dim, and just to let you know, if you can't get laid by yourself, its unlikely a band will help.

You want chicks? Don't do metal, do post-hardcore/emo-core stuff. There are tonnes of teen scene girls that love bands like Asking Alexandria and others like that so if your worried about not getting in, grow your hair like Oli Sykes and form a band. Boom!!!

Do metal bands have any fans in general?
Is it hot in here??

All the cool cats know you dont even need to know how to play...

As for metal bands getting groupies, of course they can, provided there music is good and provides them with enough money to have copious amounts of booze and blow around, everyone knows groupies are only around for the free partying. Chance are though you could put a "Free Cornhole" sign around your neck, walk into a San Francisco bath house and still not get laid. Cheers.

It depends on the sound of your metal.

Norwegian Death Metal - you don't want the fat ugly chicks with beards who follow you around

commercial Metallica sounding metal - you'll get mostly males, but a few hot chicks who want to be rebels.

glam metal - you will be swimming in chicks.

Typically, women are mostly into music you can dance to as opposed to headbanging. Play something melodic (actually melodic, not "melodic death metal" or whatever that shit's called) and fun and you'll be set.

EDIT: Your poll... only "sell out bands" write love songs and melodic stuff?
I'm rgrockr and I do not approve of this message.
#24
I was in a metal band for 2 years. We mostly only had dudes go to our shows, but got a group of 2-3 chicks who would come to most shows. Just play a lot of local gigs and if you see girls in the crowd during your set then talk to them after you play. Tell them when the next show is and whatnot.
#26
Nah mate, I reckon the reason 'real metal' people make such a fuss about being 'real metal' is cos they get no girls, so are offended when better looking lads play 'fake/fag/scene/sell out metal' and still get girls. If you want respect as a metal band, you'll be at a sausage fest. If you write good music with a metal edge, and don't purposefully appear overtly metal (eg. needlessly messy big hair, stupid leather get ups, looking generally angry) then girls will like it. I hate to say it, but studs and slayer tees only win you friends amongst other guys with studs and slayer tees.
Dude, where's my band?

Depends. Core variations of metal? sure, probably more chicks than guys even. If you play tr00 black or death, I wouldn't count on it.


That somehow makes me think, the new djent/progcore thing that Periphery, Tesseract and whatnot are riding seems to be quite balanced when it comes to fan genders. It always seem pretty 50/50 attendance when I go see bands like them.

cuz they're awesome

the way i see it, extreme branches of music are going to attract extreme branches of fans. bands like Periphery, Tesseract, Btbam and the like encompass more than just the "extreme" side of music and thus are able to attract a wider variety of audience.

i've seen plenty of chicks at btbam concerts...more guys of course, but females were very present

That's weird. That doesn't seem right. Do those bands have ridiculous haircuts and makeup by any chance?

I attend lots of underground metal gigs and there are always a healthy number of women there. Sure, there's usually a majority of guys, but that's not really surprising.

Furthermore, only a complete ****ing idiot gets into music to get women. If you're a stupid ugly bastard, then being a stupid ugly bastard in a band isn't going to get women to sleep with you. Unless you're Gene Simmons or something.

Go for the Attack Attack! sound/scene and you'll get hella fine scene girls.

This! They were all with their boyfriends though.

more melodic ish metal bands, these girls i know are obsessed with those japan vkei bands that are all caked with makeup and studio hairstyles

its sort of funny, i used to be only into metal, fast rock/ punk and such, and now that i met a girl i like whos into this stuff i got all into girly pop.
#36
I dunno, why don't you ask one of the four chicks sucking my dick right now.



there are currently no women fellating my penis
I'm just like the Jonas Brothers,

I'm no longer relevant and write mediocre music.

It's probably more because of it being very melody-based music with dominant clean vocals. Technical enough to keep the music geeks interested and not so br00tal that it scares away their girlfriends. Or something.
#38
Chicks love men whose passion and craft in life is actually a shallow tool to get them to take their clothes off.
#39
Create a band like One Direction or JLS and you will only have female fans. Screw the music it's all about the groupies.
#40
wow TS you're a posing douche. if you actually cared about music you wouldn't give a shit that there's no groupies. grow up this isn't 1983 on the sunset strip ffs.
