I'm in an argument with a friend of mine. I keep telling him that nobody under ~30 uses these terms to describe music anymore. He keeps insisting that the terms are still used by young people. Do you know anyone who still says 'heavy metal' or 'rock and roll' when describing music?

I say rock n' roll if I'm referring to a band with a more classic rock 'n roll vibe, ifnahmeen. I'd never call a modern radio rock sounding band rock 'n roll though.

I say I listen to Metal, I think Heavy Metal is the same thing.
I call it Rock N' Roll to classify Classic Rock, good old fashion Rock N' Roll.

I think StevieSwan is a fag.

I listen to rock and roll music and heavy metal, brah. Whajoo talkin' bout' man?

Seriously? Seriously, no. Heavy metal, occasionally, but it's mostly just talked about under the umbrella term metal. Rock and roll, on the other hand...
#7
No. I use the term heavy metal occasionally, but I've only heard people over thirty use those terms outside of that.

Edit: I don't think I ever use the terms "metal" and "rock" by themselves. I always tack something on to them (ie. post-rock). I'm more of a genre Nazi than I realise.

I use rock-and-roll to talk about roots stuff, like Buddy Holly, Bill Haley, Chuck Berry, etc.
#10
Rock 'N Roll; Chuck Berry, ACDC, a lot of other bands I don't really listen to.

Heavy Metal; Maiden, Dream Evil, blah blah.
#11
I refer to every and all Punk bands as 'Rock and Roll' for some reason... and metal just isn't as heavy as it used it be.
#13
I use them both. rock and roll for more 50's kinda rock.

and calling StewieSwan a fag would insult fags.

The only time I use the term "Traditional Heavy Metal" I use it to describe bands like Iron Maiden.

You just have to find people who understand subgenres. And by understand, I don't mean know of the dozens of sub-adjective adjective post-nouncore metal subgenres.

This

Both heavy metal and rock'n'roll are genres on their own.

If it's Rock 'n' Roll, I call it Rock 'n' Roll. If it Heavy Metal, I call it Heavy Metal.

I know what you are getting at saying "Heavy Metal/Rock N' Roll" is like hearing an older person call Facebook the "internet" or something of the sort. I usually just hear rock/metal from under 30. There is no need to say "heavy" or "roll" any more....

With good reason. I'm glad no one uses the Netherlands and the Benelux interchangeably.

I'd use rock'n'roll to describe stuff like Chuck Berry et cetera. When rock was just a faster and louder blues shuffle with terrible lyrics.

Me... I use both terms...
You are now using UG Black.
You are now using UG Classic.

My sister complained I was listening to Heavy Metal when I played this:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XO3GQvye2bQ

I was like GTFO.

From my understanding, Heavy Metal is a sub-genre of metal applicable to bands like Metallica and whatnot, so the bands that do play Heavy Metal are generally older. Those unversed in the different genres of metal are more likely to use the term Heavy Metal though.

if they're talking about "heavy metal" as in traditional 70's/early 80's metal such as Judas Priest and Deep Purple or modern metal in that style, or "rock 'n' roll" as in 50's rock such as Buddy Holly and Elvis Presley or modern bands in that style, then i know plenty.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.
#39
I use both terms all the time. I use rock n roll for anything from Chuck Berry to the Stones and heavy metal for classic metal like early Black Sabbath.
#40
Heavy metal can be used to mean traditional metal, but is a shit name for that subgenre because it's the least heavy type of metal.
