Inspired by the famous metal sayings thread, I’d like know if there are any funny/stupid things that people have said to you regarding metal.

A few years ago I was giving a friend a lift somewhere, I think I had Old Man’s Child playing or something like that, anyway she gets in the car and after a few minutes she says “hey, do you have any other music that won’t hurt my soul?”

It made me laugh.
So, stories anyone?

already had a recent one of these that got closed, but what the hell. i'm usually just told it's emo.
The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.

wasn't called the same thing, but it's not important. i was just saying that if the other got closed, you're odds weren't too hot.

So, I was playing seek and destroy in class the other day.
A kid named Abraham comes up.

"Why do you listen to that Shit? Metal is just a bunch of notes played really fast."

Not 3 days later, I am looking through his Itunes
What do I find?

The Master of Puppets album, The Black Album, and And Justice for all
Along with 4 Maiden albums, 2 Megadeth albums, and 1 Anthrax album.

I confront him. His response. "They aerent metal. They are 80s music."

I tell him that I was playing Metallica.
He first proceeds to call me a liar, then I show him the track.
He then says "Well, thats the ****ty side of metallica."

exactly, everyone knows that's when they were best
Well I've been told many times classics such as "it takes no talent", "it's just noise", etc. pretty basic stuff, but one person told me it sounds like people vomiting beating on buckets .

This one time, I was hanging out with my friends, and I'm like, "Equilibrium is pretty sweet eh? That song Met is a cool humpa song", my friend then proceeded to pop in his Equilibrium cd and play said song.

Yeah, I have friends who like metal.

And then another time we were with another friend's younger brother. Months ago we introduced him to cock and ball torture, and he despised the pig squeel/guttural grunts, so last night while he was playing guitar on rock band, we all stood around him pig squeeling into his face. Song= 40%

other guitarists in school look down upon me for playing metal. "omg all you do is play the low e string with random power chords." now that i'm getting into jazz and play standards on acoustic they stay quiet.

I'm the only guitarist at my school who listens to metal, the rest listen to classic rock and alternative rock and such. To them, my music is terrible with no talent required.

Guess which guy can improvise, read sheet music, and have an in-depth conversation with the music teacher?

Quote by demiphoenix
i don't get funny comments as much as everyone assumes metal = death metal

This is very true.

They also assume that death metal = Satanic goat sacrifice music spit out of the 8th circle of hell by Lucifer himself.

silhoutettica I find that extremely hard to believe as every song off MoP aside from maybe Sanitarium is heavier and most are faster than Seek and Destroy...and thus more "metal-sounding" to non-metalheads.

Metal comes from the circle devoted to fraudulent acts and trechery?
That's a bit harsh

Some hippie chick at the train station tried to sign me up for a charity, and was making this impersonation of a metal band... complete with attempts at headbanging and vocals.

I laughed at her.

Plus you get your standard idiotic misconceptions. I've made a couple of people mixed cds that encompassed various genres and variations, needless to say their opinion changed...

I hear all the time that metal is just noise, retards screaming, down sydrome kid music, etc, etc.

I feel bad for people who don't take the time to realize it's not as they're missing out ;D
#32
well,.. if you are going to get technical about it, everything is noise. Or sound. Some sound is more harmonious than other. I bet if you played some metal for him on acoustic, or transcribed it for horn or violin or whatever else you lads out there might be playing, his view would be different.

It's amazing how many people get turned off by bad production hah

I hate it that I'm the only one of my friends that listens to metal, but they all assume that every single type of metal sounds the same or is death metal. One of my friends said that all metal sounds the same even after I showed him Dream Theater, Cannibal corpse and then Hammerfall... that kid is no longer my friend
#35
"What is that Crap you're listening to?" (MY dad) "It's Death Metal dad" (ME) "Ugh...That's horrible! Why would anyone want to listen to that? It's not even real music." "Dad how can you say that?!?!?! The guitarists are so technically skilled and amazing." "It doesn't matter. Real music has to have intelligible singing."

Needless to say My father and I DO NOT agree on metal even though I listen to and enjoy plenty of the music that he does.

i go places with my mom alot because my dad doesnt like her going places alone. so I ride with her and listen to my mp3 player. well she bitches at me because she wants my to take my headphones off so we can talk and shit. so she tells me to plug my music up to the radio and I do. I put it on death so its not extremely heavy and incoherent or w.e. then she starts in saying "what is this that were listening too??" and she says it with a disgusted face. I say this is a band called Death. she shakes her head and sighs, saying "why would you want to listen to something called death, thats so negative. I hate that snarling, he sounds like the devil" I get stuff like that alot. It doesnt help to wear a cannibal corpse shirt with a zombie desecrating a grave yard,eating his own intestines. I know you guys must catch as many stares as I do walking into town like that. Anyways the conversations usually go something like that. I will say however ive changed her perspective on the musicianship. She now knows that the musicians are extremely talented. Its funny because my dad doesnt give a shit about anything. I bought "The Bleeding" by Cannibal Corpse about a year ago and she found it and took it to him and read the song titles "Force Fed Broken Glass" "fucked with a Knife" "Staring Through the Eyes of the Dead" lol and my dad didnt do anything. I was talkin to him later while wearing a CC shirt and he said "whos that?" I told him and he asked if they were any good, and I said "ya, you prolli wouldnt like em tho" and he goes.. O ok.

Yeah, I'll show non-hessians some folk metal (Ensiferum usually, Finntroll as well) and they'll be like "Yeah I like it" or just won't say anything until they hear the vocals, at which point they say "Yeah I like the music but not the vocals" or "Don't like the vocals" and then don't listen to it. Others say it's not music because of the vocals. I laugh.
If you see me in the pit, know that I'm only there because the metal forum is moving slowly.

Most of my friends say stupid stuff about metal all the time, cant think of anything out of the regular "its noise, people just screaming and banging senseless on the drums".

They still have that 70's grandma view on metal and hard rock, in the year of 2008.
#39
Wow i can relate to a lot of people in this thread, it's really true and this itself is a very interesting thread.

A lot of my friends have heard my music on my ipod/itunes and stuff and told me that all they hear is 'noise' or 'crap' and that 'theycan't even hear what they're saying' which infuriates me.

I'm dead thankful that I'm not the only one in my school that's seriously devoted to this music because I've managed to influence some of my friends into this music. Had it not been for me, they'd all be still into their punk and rap crap.

Anyway a few days ago i was blasting 'I am the black wizards' by Emperor and the second i opened my door and walked out to grab something to eat, my mom shouted TURN OFF THAT DEVILISH MUSIC.


i laughed and proceeded to the kitchen for food.

reminds me of my mom. funniest was when i put the symphony x on (because i knew she wouldnt be able to stand the Behemoth CD i had also bought), and she goes, wow they're really good at their instruments, but this is so tense it doesn't allow me to relax.... i'm just thinking in my head that my mom is so metal by transition of:

metal --> tense, mom --> tense, mom = metal
hahahahaha oh well she at least doesn't bother me anymore about what i listen to.
