Hi guys!

The question is pretty self-descriptive. But additionally, does it really matter if I listen to the bands which are not 'really metal' but still tell everyone that I'm a metal-head?

Additional info: I like Metallica, Dream Theater, Avenged Sevenfold (older Stuff), and some other similar bands. I consider them Metal..

Dude, c'mon. Enjoy what you want to enjoy. You shouldn't stop listening to a band just because others don't like it.

You're a metal poser if you can't recite the entire recommendation list at the beginning of the rec thread with your eyes closed.

You're a metal poser if you ever listen to anything that isn't metal.
EVER.

You're a metal poser if you don't listen to classical music.

You're a metal poser if you questioned the seeming contradiction above. You have much to learn, young metal grasshopper.

You're a metal poser if you buy posters instead of vinyls.

Agreed. I'd never do that. But the internet makes you question yourself.
I actually hate labeling music. It takes away the joy of being able to enjoy it freely.

The haters can pry my music away from my cold-dead hands. Or the fist thats plummeting them where it hurts the most. Whichever was tougher :-p

Can't tell if you're really serious. But in case I missed the sarcasm and you really are serious, then I can say that I'm not a metal-head but a music lover who leans to the heavier side of music. I failed on points 1 and 2.

some people get mad because they think metal is a lifestyle but really listen to whatever you find enjoyable who cares

If you define yourself by the music you like then you're just bad at being an interesting person.

And if you have to ask then the answer is probably yes.


And if you think Avenged Sevenfold is metal then the answer is definitely yes.

But it doesn't ****ing matter, just listen to what you like and stop worrying about it... poser.

Solid advice! :-p Stuff like that third point of yours made me doubt myself in the first place. Seriously.

I actually don't really accept it, I love Metal, but am not a 'true metal head'.

Well, enough of trying to rationalize. Thank you guys for your invaluable input. Good day.

Um...probably if you care that much about how you're perceived and make a thread about it

Just enjoy life and listen to the music you like, you're not gonna meet metal elitists who care in the real world anyway - they're usually in a basement somewhere

So by NABEF9's definition since I like other types of music other than metal I'm a poser? Guess I'm a huge poser then because I enjoy Classical, Jazz, Folk, etc etc. I've know guys who reasoned the same way and they like shit like Fear Factory and Kuntswitch Engaped

You know you're a metal poser when you give a **** enough to ask.

Also I'm feeling the word 'poser' is incredibly outdated, maybe it's just me? I feel like part of me is falling into the late 80s when I write that word.

You should ask yourself these two questions:

1.- Do you like Heavy Metal?
2.- Do you like to pose?

If your answer is yes in both questiones then yes you're a poser

Don't call yourself a metal head or a metal poser. Just listen to the music you enjoy listening to.
