One of the most common things metalheads get mocked for is our long hair. And that got me thinking...why exactly do we have long hair? Now, I'm not hating people with long hair (I have long hair myself), I'm asking a legitimate question: what is it with us metalheads and our long hair?

Cause youre all obsessed with looks and not being a poser more than a teenage girl going to prom.

Because it's a simple way to "rebel" against "the system" without inconveniencing yourselves.

You are desperate for an identity and long hair helps to create one for you.

both quintessential UG bitch answers tbhtbh.

In all seriousness, it's likely a hold over from Heavy Metal's roots in 1960s counterculture.

It started as a rebellion against the 'man' and the corporate world of 'taking care' of yourself and worrying about your looks. Then it turned into the style of rock/metal

^ never ever saw video footage or photo of soldiers fighting in World War 2 with long hair. . .even civilians. . .

That's not corporate America. I'm talking big businesses that enforce dress code and shit,

Because when headbanging one needs to either have:

A. Really long hair or

B. Be bald and scary looking like Kerry King

People with short hair look dumb banging their heads

Long hair is more about rebellion and anti-establishment

Did I mention people look dumb headbanging with short hair?

So looking these pictures I've discovered a universal law.

Long hair on dudes must be accompanied by denim or leather.
Both is the preferred option of course.
