So, in our media class we were doing a project on music genres. Our teacher (who is one of those Jazz elitist guys that think that metal is just a bunch of radom noise) put in Headbangers Journey the movie (which I seen 4 times and still love it). I swear to god! that I have never seen so much ignorance in my life. All I kept hear from these stupid kids were "what crap music" and the famous mocking of the vocals. Throughtout most of the movie I got was being called oreo (I'm black BTW) and other stuff. I really wanted to defend Metal but everytime I would, my race would be questioned. I really really hate urban kids.

Get a caucasioplasty. Or show them a picture of Tom Morello. Option 2 is less permanent to your skin and is cheaper.

I'm an urban kid and metal is my life.

do you still really really hate me ?
Cette nuit j'ai rêvé que je mâchais ses yeux
Après avoir crevé par accès de furie
Ta replète panse d'helminthes blancs nourrie,
Trop prompte à déféquer le fruit d'un vit sanieux.

Urban kids think your music=Sh*t
You think their music=Sh*t
Because
What you think of their music=What they think of your music
You=Urban kid

It goes both ways dude. I'm black, I listen to metal, and I get it all the time (it doesn't help that I skateboard, but meh), so just suck it up and get used to it.

Take a step back. It's pretty easy to see why people don't understand metal.


yeah. i love metal, but i'd say it's hardly the most likeable of all genres.
#17
ok walk through your school playin soulja boy screamo by i set my friends on fire, but like sum1 might try to beat u up, or just tell people to be a rapper the only thing u need is to have a grade 3 reading level and a speech impedament.

I think the real issue here is that people who don't like the same music as you were saying they don't like it for one period, and it bothered you enough that you're complaining to us.
People aren't going to go for the same things you do.

Absolutely. Because everyone who lives in the city categorizes people's musical tastes based on irrelevant criteria like race.

How ignorant.

To classify anything as "music" is an entirely subjective judgment. There is no bad or good music, only sound that you enjoy and sound that you do not. Live and let live.

i hate that shit, and of course what they mean by being white is: Thinking, being intellectual, not being arrogant, not bragging about things youve never even done.

its usually the same people that are stupid enough to think that being black= being ignorant and violent
and that showing pride in your race means hating everyone thats not you
and the stereotypes forcefed to people by BET and MTV (****'em all i hope they burn) show people at a young age the image they have to live up to. meanwhile ignorant racist white people see this and think it represents all black people. in otherwords the mainstream media helps keep this steaming pile of bullshit we now know as modern society alive. law wise we have come very far since the 1960s, but socially we have barley done anything. It all went to shit after one of the greatest men to ever step to a podium was shot in 1968.

sorry to rant but this is a subject im pretty firey on.

Hang on, so a teacher allowed racism to go on in his classroom? I mean, musical elitism is one thing, but that's just wrong.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

OK to people bashing TS for his "hypocrisy" all ts said was that his teacher was an elitist he never actually said that he himself WASNT a metal elitist.

I feel sorry for u about the racism TS, but seriously metal elitists piss me off.
I like metal quite a bit (well im not into death or black metal, but I love thrash and NWOBHM type stuff), but cmon everyone can admit that its hardly easy listening.

"Oh but its soo musically brilliant and techincally difficult", well fvck that doesn't mean its good. And whining about how all these kids nowadays don't know shit about music, well maybe they don't, but that doesn't mean they can't appreciate music they like. It's like all art, to me the Mona Lisa is a pile of shit even though it's a "great" work of art. Metal is the same for some people.

Art is so subjective anyone complaining about someone elses taste should be shot.


EDIT: and to the people complaining about the soulja boy lyrics (I hate him btw), you can't exactly say metal lyrics are better. Im sure some might be deeper, but alot of it is either fantasy, satanist bullshit; mystical, pretentious claptrap and generally shit people can't relate too (note: some of my favorite bands sing about these topics, doesn't stop me liking them).

Few metal bands have lyrics that I enjoy on a personal level(off the top of my head, metallica, megadeths serious lyrics, a select few iron maiden songs, pantera lyrics, a few more).

They're idiots for thinking race is a boundary for musical tastes, let alone anything.
