More specifically--what do you do when someone puts down metal music, for all those metalheads out there. It annoys me how people belittle it and complain how (some of it) contains screaming.

I just let others have their own opinions really. Life would be really boring if everyone liked the same stuff.

I just tell them how narrow minded they are. Most people who put down what I listen to are the wannabe rappers so yeah... they only listen to 50 pence and shit like that so they don't know much about music.
#14
If they keep on annoying me about it after i kindly tell them where to go i, i punch them in the face and see if they still wanna annoy the hell outta me.

wtf? why didnt you punch one of them in the face or something? they're not girls, they are fat chavs, they are their own gender
#15
nothing...unless they're being a dick about it...Most people that put down metal (my music of choice) are people who are too close minded to give it a chance so i simply see it as them missing out on a good thing

I usually just say, ok, whatever. Not everyone likes the same kind of music. And most of the time metalheads are the ones putting down other peoples music.

This is coming from a metalhead btw.

They haven't put the effort into enjoying music that isn't as accessible as a radio.
#19
Let them have their opinions. I like what I like and they can like what they like even though some people just put down certain music to join the hate-band wagon.

Make fun of their crappy pop music and mainstream rap that always fades out and how they'll never leave the legacy that Led Zeppelin did.
#23
I don't get pissed or anything. I just calmly say:

"Okay? That's fine with me. If you don't like it, I'm not forcing you to listen to it.

And, please, don't say it again. I'm pretty sure you don't want me making fun of your music."


I've had to say that recently, because it happens A LOT. I mean, listening to a lot of the more underground metal, post rock, post metal, and other not-so-known stuff REALLY gets confused looks.

It's bothersome but I'm not going to shit a brick over it. I usually respect their opinions unless they're complete assholes.

No but like if someone just flamed how that particular genre sucked just because of what it contains. Music/vocals/etc.

I hate it when metalheads put down genres apart from metal. I don't take it seriously 'cause I know that a lot of metalheads are closed minded elitists who don't understand other genres and don't bother to try.

Yeah haha but what's really the question is that my bro always complains when I put some music on (in my room as well) that's metal/metalcore/whatever (Lamb of God, AILD, Norma Jean, etc). He says it gives him a headache

I usually just walk away - people can have their own opinions, but if they're bein total ***s about it, i walk away whilst satisfying myself with the mental image of burying a cd of whoever they'r talkin s**t bout in their skull...strange how that only ever happens if you're having a particularly bad day though...
