I've been hearing people saying that they kinda like metal but they afraid of starting listening to it for fear it might make them angry or satanists.
So , Is metal A stereotype ? will people go angry and smth else by listening to it?
Are more and more people intimidated to listen to metal?

I fail to see how metal is a 'stereotype,' but yeah, generally people look at metal as an intimadating genre.

People generally lump metalheads into a stereotypical group, yes. For the most part it's not entirely true.
#6
Yeah , just to clear the air , I 'm not talking about ppl that are listening to metal , or were or aything .
I'm talking about other ppl thoughts and ppl who like metal but they dont want to hear it for the reasons I said.

I was afraid of metal for the same reasons threadstarter posted. Now I can see past that stereotype and enjoy some good music.

Quote by Metallica!
people say its evil because its too hard for them to play.


I think ppl think its evil cause they dont know ****.
ppl think its evil cause of the stereotype other folks create.
They think its evil cause they hear tons of crap spewing out of dumbasses.

If thats directed to me, curl up into a ball and blow yourself.

It's easy to be affected by stereotypes if wrong idea's are spreaded by the majority of people. After a while you just say fuck it and stop paying attention to other people. I just looked beyond the lies that were spewed and found what I was always missing.

Yeah lots of people think that. To top it off, lots of people I know think SOAD, Three Days Grace, and any band that is heavier than their R&B/Rap/Pop bull**** is "heavy metal" or "death hardcore metal".
#29
So it comes back to the old "what people don't understand, they fear". Although I don't se how someone can be afraid of a genre of music or being influenced by it (greatly).

Although I was scared of heavy bands...before I hit puberty.

^Exactly.

Everyone at my school except for my friends thinks that In Flames is all blood, gore, kill people ICP ****, based on my Come Clarity shirt. They view metal as a genre that is only those things...

So thats what I mean. Ignorant bastards stereotype our genre .
They think that its all blood and fights and satanism and ****. It is just the music we love and we are through taking **** from ignorant ppl.

Well I like metal and I mnot an angry person. Yes I have a strong being but thats it. Im Christian and still listen to music I just dont let the lyrics or message consume me. I just listen play it enjoy it and know that is only music.
#33
I can see though how some people get "discouraged" or even offened when they see say...a Cannibal corpse album cover, or hear something simlarily extreme.
#35
That's B*ll**** metal doesn't make you become a satanist or angier, a bunch of right wing lunatics started that stuff because metal is something they don't understand it

Well these people are pussies if they don't want to listen to metal just because people are so quick to judge. Metal doesn't make you go angry or "smth else".
