First post, so here goes. One of my friends in a sense is kinda of a poser. When someone asks him what genre he listens to he responds with Death metal. However he doesn't have any death metal on his ipod (besides like 2 songs of deicide, which mainly was a joke) idk why but it gets on my nerves, i mean im pretty much the only kid in the grade that listens to progressive death metal and i do it because i enjoy the music. What would drive someone to say the like a genre IF THEY DONT HAVE ANY OF THE F****** SONGS OF THAT GENRE. so any comments or advice to tell him hes got to stop being a poser (nicely)

as much as i hate death metal.. i hate posers more. so here i go..

just start asking him questions about it that you know the answer too and that he doesnt. then trap him in a hole and say "you dont know anything about metal.. do you?.."

haha but i dont want to completely destroy our friendship but he doesnt get it. he made his freaking group name on a game, deathmetaljunki. actually maybe u could consider he has one album of death metal, Dethklok, but in all honestly there kind of a joke band.

Ive said to him "you know you dont have any Death metal on your ipod?" hes excuse is he doesnt know any bands. THEN HOW DO YOU LIKE THE DAMN GENRE?

everyones a noob at a genre at sometime, when you first started listening to death metal its not as if you knew everything about it just dont be a dick about it and introduce him to the genre
Sig space available, give me some praise

Reminds me of a kid I knew that bought a Clash t-shirt before he even owned any of their albums. Don't hang out with people like that, they're losers and they'll just bring you down.

as much as a joke band they may be, I find that they're still pretty good.

as for your friend, just show other people that he has Hannah Montana on his iPod and be like, "THIS is what he really listens to"

hahah you prob looked on my profile, i havent changed it in a while. just so some of you are questioning that i like the genre, I have two cannibal corpse albums ,KILL and the onther ones on the tip of my tounge, Opeth Blackwater park watershed damnation, BTBAM Colors, and DM isnt my only genre i listen to a bunch of other stuff
#25
Constantly listen to it when you're with him, link him to it on Youtube, exchange trivia with him. If he survives, he'll probably be a real one by the end.

Yeah... a few douches at my school say they listen to death metal. One brought in a Demon Hunter CD, and they're more metalcore imo. Just about everyone thinks Slipknot is death metal.

NOTHING HURTS BATMAN!

thats what he said when i told him to list DM bands, he said slipknot, i said no. then he was like what are they, kinda implying that he thought they were death metal
#29
just so everyone knows idc waht people listen to just dont lie, i think he likes the genre a little but not enough to say thats all he listens too. the majority of what he listens to is like van halen stuff.

Opeth i consider Progressive Death Metal which is what i mainly go for in DM. BTBAM some consider deathcore some consider death metal, either way pretty damn close to DM. plus i have some other DM bands im just too lazy to open up my ipod.

EDITamn i completely forgot about death, the ones who started it all. Also I have Cynic and Atheist. sorry i only got like 5 hours of sleep so im drawing a bit of a blank.

Not just a DM member, but a legend. Yeah Necrophagist is good, so is Ityphallic, and every other album they have made.
