Most Controversial Metal Subgenres

These are the 'metal'genres that have received a lot of controversy and backlash, mostly because of their lyrics, their musicians, or their sound in general.
This list also includes:
* Non-metal genres with 'metal' in the name.
* Non-metal genres that are considered as 'metal' by a lot of people.
I'm not saying that these genres are bad, I'm just saying that they received a lot of controversy.
