Just wondering for any of you out there who happen to be metalheads and have girlfriends, what they think of your musical taste. I don't have a gf atm but one of my buddy's girlfriend cant stand his music, but plays it anyways lol.

Don't have a girlfriend now, but one I had back in the day didn't care what I listened to.

You know a music scene is fucked up when it becomes difficult to keep track of who killed who, who committed suicide and who alledgedly engaged in cannibalism.

If I were a metalhead's girlfriend, I would probably enjoy his music taste. Unless he listened to sucky metal, but then I'd probably just tell him to go to hell and break up with him.

If you really want tehm to listen to metal.... If they like rock, listen to that with them and make the music progressively heavier over about the course of about a month... Cant gaurentee it will work for death metal that may take longer but this is usually how most people who dont like metal end up getting into it.

na that dont work slim SG trust me on that one... i tried it with like 4 girls but i give up now ay... i dont actually give a **** what they listen to and usually they dont care that much... ma gf at the moment listens to rap religiously...
Metallica is god, you're a boring sod!
#7
I like girls that wear death metal baby t's.(Nile, Cannibal Corpse, Dying Fetus). Unfortunately, I have only met one girl that does and she is married.

Otherwise, one of my best friend listens to newer metal like Mastodon, BTBAM, The Faceless, and she kick a$$! I guess if I had a girlfriend that listened to metal religiously that would be cool, but I am not too worried about it.

(Sorry for beyond-human, rap sucks so bad....)

I'm not a metal head, but I do listen to metal from time to time. And my girlfriend has absolutely no problem with it. The only time she has a problem with what I'm listening to is when I blast M'Bop. Aside from that, her taste is on par with mine.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

My girlfriend's not really a huge metal fan, but the metal she does listen to is good. She likes Pantera the most, from what I can tell. She doesn't even like the metalcore bands like A7x. I got her into listening Metallica, but she doesn't like Hetfield's voice that much. It was funny, I actually thought it would be better to start off showing the later stuff, but it turns out, early Metallica is her favorite, especially Ride the Lightning.

Your best bet is to try and find metal bands with close-as-possible similarities to what they already like. If she really likes good lyrics, find a band with good writing. If she's more into rock, try finding songs by metal bands which are closer to that aspect. If she likes the ballad-y stuff, go for softer ones, like Nothing Else Matters by Metallica.

Youre gonna break up with her in a month and a half on account of the fact that 'she doesnt understand you'.
And may I ask if you cried when you found out Casey Calvert died?

similur case for me, my girlfriend thinks im hot cuz I dress all punk and ****ty looking and listen to screamin' tunes. like, my pants are so tight that the button ****in broke off, and she thought that was hot cuz the zipper was down most the time. she likes the whole studded belt with ripped jeans and denim crap.

oh yeah and by the way, my girlfriend is a total prep, who listens to mostly rap and whatever crap music is on tv today. and she's on the cross-country team, basketball team, track team. i wanted her to do wrestling but it was during track so she couldn't ( i figured I could benefit from that one sexually

but yeah i have brainwashed her quite a bit unintentionally with the devil's music known as rock n roll.
I love all forms of Rock 'n' Roll, past and NOT present

My Girlfriend likes similar music to me, but less heavy.
We share common music until the heaviness of Pantera.
She likes that, but any heavier than that she doesn't.

my girlfriend loves the same music that i'm into, which is cool cause a) hardly anyone where i live likes metal and b) i didn't get her into metal, she loved it before we were together

What the hell was the point in that? Jesus christ, grow up.

And on the subject yeah it'd be a bonus if my GF was a metalhead but not a need.
My GF likes some metal but not any of the heavier stuff.

Yeah, I don't have a girlfriend any more, but I did not long ago. And sure she liked some stuff like Iron Maiden, bit of Slipknot (I think). But I don't think she was overly keen on the Cradle of Filth, Children of Bodom, Machine Head etc kind of music. And I don't care to be honest, I listened to stuff of hers that I didn't like, so she can bloody well listen to some of my shit.
You cannot choose the little time you're given in this world. You enter bare and unclothed, provided only with intelligence enough to choose how you spend your time. You always have a choice. Always. Though be warned, your choice can rarely be undone
#25
My girlfriend listens to Killswitch, As I Lay Dying, Atreyu, Cradle Of Filth, and a few other metal-type bands. I think I kinda got her on to it.
Unfortunately, she doesn't care much for Thrice. Sigh...
#26
My last one lhad really shallow music taste so she liked everything....

But the one i'm hunting at the moment is a metalhead like myself
#27
Mine doesn't like it, but that doesn't make her love me less ..

Opeth, Porcupine Tree (even though not entirely metal) Kalmah, Amon Amarth, Dream Theatre, COB/Norther, Dark Tranquility, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Metallica, a bit of Dimmu Borgir and quite a lot more metal bands she likes. She's not a metal-head and often listens to alternative rock as well and it's just perfect.

She loves Opeth a lot and that's one of my favourite band. She's pretty much open to all kind of Metal except she can't stand the very low quality production of early black metal. But that's just fine.


P.S. She seemed to be very tr00 with the metal and never saw her interested in metal that aren't tr00, namely the core scenes. (Without having mine, public or forum influence). I love her!

My ex used to listen to bands like Fall Out Boy and Panic!....
I always used to slag her bout her music taste.
#31
Yeah I do, she likes coming to the shows and watching me perform, just like I go to her dancing shows. I have no interest in Dancing really and only go for her, same reason she goes for me. She likes the usual pop stuff. FOB etc.
#32
People consider me a metalhead, whereas I'm not. But my last girlfriend had a fairly similar music taste. It wasn't as heavy, but I only listen to the really heavy stuff when I'm pissed off lol.

So music taste does not change attractiveness it seems. Though I don't think I could go out with a girl that's really close minded to music. I listen to Blues, Country, Pop, Metal, Death Metal, Rock, Classic Rock, Instrumentals, Acoustic, pretty much most things, just not Rap/Rn'B. So I can't go out with a girl who solely likes one genre lol.

My g/f is very much an everything type of girl, when we started dating she was very keen on classic rock and stuff from the 60s (particularly the beatles), she also adores fall out boy and alkaline trio, but among the shows we've been to together: Megadeth/Dream Theater/Nevermore Gigantour, Children of Bodom, Avenged Sevenfold, Black Label Society, In Flames/Trivium, Atreyu/Every Time I Die

mind you she skipped out on seeing All That Remains, Arch Enemy/Machinehead, Lamb of God, Killswitch Engage, and the last 2 Sounds of the Underground tours

but she doesn't like death, black or anything that touches that general aea (Cannibal corpse, JFAC, Behemoth ect) she's an atheist and insists that music makes baby jesus cry
#34
My girlfriend listens to Kelly Clarkson
And Black Sabbath, Iron MAiden Judas Priest, Metallica, Nazareth and a **** load of other stuff.
She listens to a load of classical stuff to.
Doesn't like Dance music though

Although i've evolved out of my metalhead phase into a general overviewer of rockin' music, My girlfriend HATES my favourite band, Rush.

I don't mind though, where is the fun in having the same tastes. To be fair, she does love T-rex.

i like all music, including a hefty amount of metal, and my boyfriend can't stand it.

he teases me about how bad metal is, so i tell him how rubbish indie is

i've had exes who've like drum n bass, which was ok with me, and exes who've also liked metal, and exes who've been too musically retarded to like anything.
