Alright well as you could tell by the title I listen to metal and it really annoys me when you get those ignorant kids who just go "ewww theres screaming its screamo" or they go "Metal is so emo!" one of my mates was paying me out about Dimebag and he goes "His music was so crap no-wonder he got shot!" now he listens to rap so I go "Yeah that would explain why rappers get shot so much hey?" needless to say owned

so any of you dudes get any of this kinda hate?


(and just so you know I dont hate rap, I listen to some Dr.Dre, Eazy-E classic rap but it just popped into my mind lol)

Never happened to me, but thats probably because I haven't talked to any of my friends in about a year, which is about when I started to like metal.
#5
bout 5 years ago, if i listened to anything with a guitar in or wore a band tee, i was a mosher, now the word of choice is emo. im neither to be honest, but people just dont get that. i suppose that said when people go down the street playing mc music really loudly but with terrible quality sound systems i call them knob heads - and thats means im generalizing as much as they do.

cors the difference is, im right . . .

It's funny cause rap, rnb, etc... relies on their video clips to be successful, cause their music is s***. Put a couple of naked chicks on the screen and anyone will listen to your music...

I hate those f***ing techno people... there are 2 in my class, and once one came in while we were listening to metal, and he shouted "Turn off that ****!" ... I just shouted back at him, altough he is a big, strong nazi bitch... -.- (I am not just calling him one, he really is)

Once another funny techno-thing (are they human?) called our bassist emo... he has long blonde hair, NOT hanging into his face... a long black coat... damn they are so silly. xD

Oh, and have you ever tried to put your jeans into your boots? You never knew how strange some people can look at you. xD

Sry for my hate against techno... but the techno people around here are just amazingly damn stupid!
Emo compared to techno... I love emo! xD

this is just a way people try and either A. give you **** or B.make dicks out of themselves. Now, if you look at metal and emo, what actually makes something emo is what they are singing about, and metal can be like that sometimes, but if you think its a good song or band, I wouldn't argue, just take it in stride and giggle about the fact that they care enough to say anything.
#10
i get hate all the time, usually get called a mosher or whatever. i dont see how its an insult though, so i just kinda annoy them back by waving at them or blow them kisses, they usually stop around about that time
#11
nah man i get none of that rubbish aye. but then again in my area everyone listens to rock like ac/dc nd zepplin nd stuff so metal is tolerated. I donno aye people that live in perth (australia) are pretty good at differentiating between emos nd metalheads nd the like, in fact we are pretty much tolerant of everyones musical tastes even if we dont like them ourselves. but its universal that everyone h8s emos not the music but the people who play the sterotype of en emo for attention purposes or for fasion.
#12
whats wrong with techno?

tbh emo/screamo does sound **** IMO. I listen to metal but i can understand why some people wouldnt like it, as to some its just noise.

And thats the way i feel about regular 'pop' music. Just tell people to **** off or just dont play and cause controversy. TS is probably just one of those 13yr old fan boys who listens to metal to piss off his parents and to annoy people. People like THAT piss me off.

It's an acquired taste, like most forms of technical and complex music (jazz, classical, etc.). People who think it's all a bunch of mindless screaming are ignorant and I don't really care enough to try to change their opinion.

No I listen to metal cause I like it, when I first heard cowboys from hell I was like "wow this sounds awesome" and that got me into metal and I found more metal bands and I only listen to music that I like, I've got freakin' Marvin Gaye, Lionel Richie and Blink 182 on my computer now please GTFO before you try and be an e-Badass

Don't all break it down into Metal genres. The question was generalised.

The simple fact is that most people like their Justin Timberlakes and blooming Pussy Hot Girls or whatever. **** music suits **** people. They feel the need to express their opinions about our music, completely basing their arguments on stereotypes and misinterpretations, when in fact they haven't the slightest idea about it.

What it comes down to is, generally speaking, musicians and music passionates choose classical, blues, jazz and metal because they both understand and appreciate those genres of music for the talent and worth they exhibit.

As knowledgeable and credible minds, the metal head that you are, its up to you to ignore the sea of mediocrity known as the commercial rock industry and simply tell them to kindly **** the hell off.

Surely I could say the exact same thing about you though? Maybe you don't know enough about the kind of music that they listen to. And you because you listen to a certain kind of music doesn't make you any more knowledgeable or credible that anyone else. And plenty of musicians and "music passionates" listen to mainstream and popular music too you know.

Yes you are right, that is highly contradictory when given in perspective. What I forgot to say is that, and i am sure you agree when I say that Justin Timberlake, Cat Sluts, Eminem etc are indeed ****. ( I used to listen to such music and still hear it played at my friends houses all the time. Now that I am more critical of music and have more of a musically analytical perspective, this is how I view them now).

Pardon, I was not making an attack on commercial music or mainstream rock. Though great bands like Red Hot Chilli Peppers are commercial, I was recognising the more common garbage of commercial rock such as Good Charlotte etc.

Me and some of my friends just stared at him like he was out of his mind till he went away
#25
one of my mates yes hes my mate tried to say metal is not music it should b considered an artwork as there is no point to it as you cant dance to it... i then preceded to grind him into the ground by saying techno is not real music as it uses no actual instruments and is less of music than metal because most of the **** he listens to either has NO melody no harmony and generally no structure whatsoever. now needless to say he shut the **** up especially wen i told him that metal is older has deeper roots and it HAS all these things..

My only problem with it is genres aren't set in stone, they're more of a personal boundary though there are some broad general sections. If that person believes one scream makes it screamo, so be it. He dislikes anything that is in his "screamo" genre. Most likely you on the other hand, like me, are used to a few metal screams and know it to be nothing like what we consider the genre screamo to be. Someone's specific opinion does not make them ignorant.

Anyways, no, I am not called emo. Yes, I listen to metal. It might be the metal you listen to, I prefer the classics "e.g. Iron Maiden et cetera." The more screaming versions of metal are called emo when in my opinion they aren't, but it's a stereotype because many said emo teens listen to that type of music.

I used to get refered to as "emo" by some of my friends (who are very much into dance/pop music) for wearing a studded wrist band. Good lord...

I don't have my hair covering my face (christ, it isn't even long).
I listen to punk, not emo.
I wear combat trousers/ripped jeans, not skin tight testicle chokers.
I wear Clash/Ramones t-shirts. Hardly 'emo'.
I can't stand songs about failing relationships, love or and of that sort.

It's just musical ignorance.

I just don't bother with it, although I did have a rather awesome call a few years ago to an ex girlfriends friend who was having a go about Dimebag (notice a pattern here)

The usual, "rah rah it was so fortuitous that Dimabag got shot lollolol"
My reply, "Hey, how good was it that Ramones dude got cancer and died a slow painful death ?"

Meh. I get the 'it's just senseless screaming' from time to time, but since I have an iPod, most people listen to some stuff I listen to and say it's not that bad.

It's all about open-mindness. You're worse for hating other genre's because their listeners hate metal and their listeners. I also wholeheartedly love it when 'metalheads' say they don't care, then continue on how 'bad' pop music is.

I hate being called metalhead because of people who think Metal is the greatest thing to have ever happened, being the best genre, etc.
