A question to those that belittle any genre that isn't Metal / Heavy music

Why do you do it? Genuine question.

Why can't you accept that there is great music from every genre? Have you ever properly listened to other genres? And how old are you?

I'm honestly curious about your reasons.
RIP Tom Searle.

because if the music was actuallly good it would be included as a sub genre of metal such as acoustic-folk-ambient-meditation metal

Because metalheads in general are stupid and if you disagree you're stupid.

Metal person says Rap is bad.

Pop person says Metal is bad.

Rap person says Country is bad.

Classical person says Electronic is bad.

Country person says Rap is bad.

Electronic person says Country is bad.

Indie person says all are bad.

All say Indie is bad.

J-Pop person says (US)Pop is bad.

(US) Pop person says Anime is the work of pedophiles.

J-Pop person takes frustration out on LotR person.

Because they are trapped, they belittle it all to the point were actually trying to enjoy it would undermine the last few years of their efforts.

Anyone who says "every song thats [genre] sucks" is naive or just plain ignorant.

Most say things like this just on some social principle that hey are not proper "rock/metal fans" if they listen to other things. Or that they must dress/act/listen to the "right" things to be accepted in their social circle.

Luckily most of these people, myself included reach 20/21 and grow up a little, and start being a little more open minded and individual, Best thing i did. Sadly some don't and loose out on thousands of great bands and songs due to a childish conception that they will be seen in a negative light for liking something that personal to them.

Because hipsters are awful people.

Seriously though. I like a lot of different genres, but it does get annoying when you will talking to someone about bands and they immediately toss aside any band you mention once they find out they are metal, without even ever listening to them. Same goes for any genre though.

How are you supposed to expend your musical tastes if you won't even listen to something because of the genre it's been labeled under?

you say emenem - i say iron maiden

92% of teenagers have turned to hip-hop and pop, if ur part of the 8%, copy this message and past it to an other video. DONT LET THE SPIRIT OF ROCK DIE !!!!!

Group mentality. Admitting something other than metal is worthwhile is going back on what they've said. Nobody likes admitting they were wrong.
I've got the spirit, but lose the feeling.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

From what I noticed, it just has a lot to do with them knowing almost nothing about where metal derived from and what musical aspects are used in the writing process. All they seem to know is it's heavy, and very little metalheads, nowadays from my experience anyways, give very little credit to the bands who pioneered it and what their influences were.

The majority of them are just young, dumb kids IMO but they're still some of the younger generation who appreciate all forms of music.

I always wondered where that statistic came from.

92% of mole people teenagers have turned to mud and gravel, if ur part of the 8% that liek good ole dirt, then copy this message and past it to an other video. DONT LET THE DIRTY EARTH DIE!

For serious.

Most people who say this is because they dislike the vocals and are generally oblivious to music. These are people that use music as a background audio that serves no purpose but to fill in the silence.

People also dislike Metal due to it's more rigid content that is considered scary, evil, perverted, or all of the above. They view music as a tool of only allowing you to feel a very limited set of emotions such as Happy, Sad, and angsty angst.

The other people are ones who just don't like the genre and have their own opinions about it and really just don't give a flying spaghetti monster meatball shit that came out of his gaping sauce vagina.

Moral of this story: Metal lovers hate the flying spaghetti monster's vagina.

I've never met a metalhead who only listens to metal. Actually every metalhead I know listens to several different genres of music and is very open to listening to new things. Where is this stereotype coming from?

Who cares about influences? If that was the case then we must enjoy banging rocks together and clapping like idiots. That was the beginning of music, so everything is influenced by that.

Than you're lucky haha I'm stuck in a city with a bunch of morons who think any metal with gutteral vocals is classified as screamo, and the only heavy songs are down tuned.

Missed the point completely. I meant all the old metal bands when they were growing up didn't just listen to what was "heavy."

I really like metal and its my favortite genre of music. But I don't think its the best. There is good music in all genres, but for some you have to look outside the mainstream to find the good artists. Metalheads that say that all other music sucks need to look at the deeper roots of metal before saying that. Rap/Pop/Indie/any other music fan that say metal is all noise really should look at the roots of metal as well.

TS, most of the time its the younger metalheads that think metal is the best and everything else sucks. They only say it out of ignorance, and immaturaty in some cases.
Trust me, I'm a Jedi.

Why do you do it? Genuine question.

Why can't you accept that you are not good at creating threads? Have you ever properly tried your hand at making a decent one? And why are you so bad at it?

I'm honestly curious about your reasons.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.
