Led Zeppelin isn't metal.

I guess I'd go in "Prime Metaller." Though, I don't like that label, or any label. Which is ironic as I've labeled myself by answering.

Led Zeppelin isn't metal.


Yeah, but they are considered to be a major influence, and a lot of fans of older metal seem to consider them as a major part of it...I'm not disagreeing with you, but I think that it's more about their influence and people's tendency to lump them in with that than whether or not they are metal, or not.

As for me, I like a lot of stuff from different genres (many of which are listed), so I don't really count as any of those.

Fuck Metal!!!!!
But, seriously, I guess I'd fit into the Prime Metaller category. Also, please remove DragonForce and Kamelot from the Power Metal list. DragonForce barely counts, and Kamelot is...well...Kamelot.

That's a label in itself. You're a non-conforming conformist who REFUSES to be labeled in one clique. I'm going to guess you're a mall goth.


POWER METAL FTW!

In that list, Thrash metaller is probably most accurate. Saying that I like all genres of metal except black and glam. But really, I'm just me

Not everyone listens to metal (although I do).
Also, I like some of the descriptions (this may not be a proper quote, but it is near enough)
Power Metaller: You listen to power metal

Surely not!
