42Metal can save your life

Sure saved my life. Before metal I was always lazy and lack in energy. Now that I listen to thrash metal I have unexplainable energy that I never had that I later use to exercise. It's true what they: metal is better than pop.

43It isn't generic
44Metal songs aren't a flavor of the month

Because it is an important part of Metal-respect

45Pop always focuses on the same exact subject

This is why I don't like pop music

46Metal lyrics are more realistic
47Metal toughens you up

Who would you consider a true badass:
Someone walking down the street listening to Bruno Mars or someone blasting Devourment?

48Metal lyrics make sense
49Metal music can be happy while pop can be sickening

The song "Battery":
Crowd would be jumping up and down so excited over the high energy. Song dedicated to the fans.
Typical Bubblegum pop:
Song hs too much "sweetness" to it.

50Most pop is sensual

How hypocritical is that when people say Metal is a bad influence because it's too violent yet some pop and rap is too sexual and filled with drugs.

Yep. It's why a lot of teens are getting pregnant.

51Metal song lyrics have deeper and more sensible meanings.

So true! The Amity Affliction has lyrics that I can truly relate to. Being as an Ocean has written songs that have made me cry from the lyrics. Born of Osiris has great lyrics too. Listen to Follow The Signs.

Metal songs talk about politics, society, life and death, sometimes religion and many more complex issues... unlike pop where its all about party, sex, and dope.

52Some metal songs are educationalV1 Comment
53Metal will teach you not to judge by appearances

It certainly will! I used to think that metal was just a tool of Satan and required no talent whatsoever. But then I listened to Three Days Grace (who aren't metal, but have made some metal sounding songs) and I started to realize that metal isn't satanic at all. Heck it can even prevent depression and suicide because it has so much more meaningful lyrics than pop. I really, really wish that people for once would not judge by appearances.

54Some pop can influence bad behavior
55Metal is more diverse
56Most pop is simple-mindedV1 Comment
57Metal vocalist actually sing on stage, Pop singers just lip-sync

Just watch Deny the Cross by Overkill live. You'll notice that Blitz gives out his voice with extreme power. Now compare it to pop singers on stage. Type back if you noticed anything.

58Metal has better album covers

The Great Stone War by Winds of Plague compared to a Selena Gomez cover? It's obvious which one looks better and more epic.

See the cover art of South Of Heaven. Even the simplicity of Death Magnetic. Many Megadeth cover arts.

59Most metal songs have positive messages

"Wrong Side of Heaven" by FFDP talks about helping our veterans and accepting them.

60Most metal songs talk about living and celebrating life

Basically, once the song "That Was Just Your Life" ends, you would realize that life is something to live, not to pass by.
