Top 10 Annoying Things About Making Metal Lists

The Top Ten
1 Elitists

I totally agree metal elitists are annoying but the word "elitist" is often used in a wrong way - many fans use the word "elitist" when they disagree with an opinion.

About Limp Bizkit: Encyclopaedia Metallum is widely considered as the best, biggest and most correct source of metal information but they don't have articles / info about nu metal bands. Why do you think Search results for "Limp Bizkit" look like this: "No matches found. Please try with different search terms." But Encyclopaedia Metallum has info about metal bands with only 1 album.

'Limp Bizkit never played Metal.'

2 Adding rock bands

This is really annoying - Led Zeppelin, their members and their songs in the top 10 on many metal lists... Also Kurt Cobain, Bon Scott, etc. the best metal singers...

I am disgusted when I see Rock bands voted in metal lists

I like Rock but don't add any Rock bands
to a list about Metalbands.

3 Trolls

"Look at those emos! " - Fretto

4 Overreactions

"Why the **** is Slayer on this list!?

*gasp* Fretto, don't say bad. Words on a childrens site

5 Almost all topics are already gone

That's why I have to think...a lot - Ananya

The best Metalbands of (year) - Fretto

6 Visitors who down/up vote

Most of the time it's good but when Metallica is labeled as the best Death Metalband... - Fretto

7 Wrong information in the comments

'Slayer played Grindcore...' - Fretto

8 Metallica Metallica is an American Thrash Metal band formed in 1981 . The original lineup was James Hetfield (Vocalist and Rhythm guitarist), Dave Mustaine (Lead Guitar), Lars Ulrich (Drums), Ron McGovney (Bassist). The group came into mainstream from their Self-Titled album and the hit single "Enter Sandman". more.

Yes Fretto, I strongly agree with ya

Metallica is almost everywhere.
Ironically in my list too.

9 Nu metal is not metal

Facts to think about: Encyclopaedia Metallum don't have articles / info about nu metal bands. They have info about all metal bands under the sun, even with only one EP but if you search "Slipknot" you will see this: "Slipknot were from New Haven, Connecticut. Stiemy (bass/vocals) was previously the singer in Fatal Vision...", and so on. And there's a sentence:"Not to be confused with the nu-metal/modern rock band Slipknot from Des Moines, Iowa."

It's not that I ignorantly think nu metal is not metal, but because it really isn't. I heard it's actually supposed to be a genre of hard rock or something.

When Nu Metal is not Metal then Power Metal, Heavy Metal or Groove Metal aren't as well.

Riiight it's trash
