10 Things Elitist Metalheads Hate the Most


The Top TenXW

1Popular Metal Bands

They could be a fan of a certain band and claim to be diehard, but when that band makes it big, they call that band a bunch of sellouts. - MetalFoREVer1228

I guess many people hate great bands (not only metal) just because they're overrated (examples : Linkin Park, Avenged Sevenfold, Green Day etc) - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

Just because a band is popular and 'overrated' doesn't mean they are bad. Slipknot are probably the most popular metal band at the moment, but they are amazing, and definitely one of my favourite bands. - Lem

Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold, Slipknot, etc.

2Pop Music

They hate it simply because they are too close-minded to try anything else. - MoldySock

I hate pop music too, but they absolutely despise it with every fiber of their being. - MetalFoREVer1228

Pop music sucks, but if all music was serious and sad it wouldn't seem serious and sad anymore.

Shadows (Vocals), Synyster Gates (Lead Guitar), Zacky Vengeance (Rhythm Guitar), Johnny Christ (Bass Guitar), and The Rev (Drums) . ...read more.

I don't get it. In terms of reviews, metalheads will give a 4 to a Taylor Swift album, but this band, because they're called metal, will get lots of hate from elitists. Because they're a popular band that people call metal. Avenged is a hard rock band, but they still have a lot more edge than any other kind of music out now.

I'm not a huge fan of this band either but the elitists show no respect at all for them, they are even celebrating the Rev's death.

Why are they hated so much? They're great. Overrated doesn't always mean bad - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

They are extremely overrated, and ripped off everyone imaginable

9Rap/Hip Hop

I like rap and metal, does that make me a bad person?

10When Metal Bands That They Don't Like Are Called Metal

One thing I hate the most is when they say that a certain band isn't metal even when they R. I saw once that someone said Lamb of God is just generic Wal-Mart rock and not metal. Oh how uncultired you elitists are. - MetalFoREVer1228

11When People Call Metal Screamo

Anyone who calls metal screamo is just retarded.

17Modern Bands

I hate it when people say that the only good bands are the ones that that have ben around for a long time. Metallica and Iron Maiden are amazing, I'll admit, but I prefer mpre modern bands like Slipknot, Avenged Sevenfold and Trivium. - Lem

Totally agree with you Lem. People get stuck in the past and think everything from that time period was better.

18Smooth Jazz

Almost all metal bands are heavily influenced by jazz, so there's that - ryanrimmel


Like jazz, most metal bands are heavily influenced by classical so - ryanrimmel

20Clean singing

Not true. I'm a metal maniac and I love classic rock, punk, grunge, alternative, you name it. Almost anything rock or metal appeals to me - ryanrimmel

Elitist and Metal maniacs are two different things.
