Top Ten Struggles of Being a Metalhead

Ok, these may have not happened to every metalhead. If none of these never happened to you then good for you. If these ever happened then tell me your experience.
The Top Ten
1 People thinking you're a devil worshiper

Metal isn't satanic and those people need to stop whining about it. Black Sabbath even wrote a Christian song "After Forever" which proves that they aren't satanic.

I'm a Christian and I Love Metal. People are too quick to judge.

Yes, this list is very relatable.

I Am not a satanist I’m just angry at this goddamn world!

2 People claiming you're emo or goth

Those are COMPLETELY separate from each other.

RAW also I'm christian and love metal so um yeah bully me RAW say I worship satan RAW say slipknot are talaneted TEE HEE HEE say that I am dumb RAW RAW RAW

3 People who make the metal community look bad

Yes, there are such metal fans but it's true for every fanbase.

The elitists are at fault of this.

4 People saying that it's just noise.

All music is "just noise" what else is it? Its sound waves of using a frequency. All music is just is.

This posses me off

I don’t like it but I Ike some bands from it (Evanescence, Linkin Park) and it’s way better than Country, Folk and Classical.

5 People will think you only listen to Metallica

I listen to Metallica quite a bit, but they're not the only metal band I listen to. I mainly listen to six. Metallica, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest and Pantera, but I also like Slayer, Anthrax, and several others.

Metallica is my favorite band, but I love and know many other bands like Blind Guardian, Iron Maiden, Mägo de Oz, Judas Priest, Stravaganzza, etc.

Metallica isn't the only one.

6 People bullying you for it

The worst thing. I was bullied for listening to metal since I started

7 If you're black and listen to metal, people will call you "white"

I'm black and my mom thinks there is something wrong with me for hating rap music. I think there is something wrong with her liking modern rap music.

Ever heard of a white rapper? An example: Eminem.

8 People will think you're depressed

No, I'm just tired from headbanging too much.

I am depressed

9 People going crazy when you listen to genres other than metal

Quite right because we can't only listen to metal music there are also rock and indie pop and this is so good to be intersted in

10 Being the only metalhead in school...

There is another metal fan at my school, but I’m the biggest metalhead in my school. In 8th grade, I was the only one in the grade who knows about metal, let alone likes it (no one but me in the grade knows Metallica unless I told them about it).

True struggle. Every young thrasher goes through it.

OML yes I’m a fifth grader and everyone calls me weird.

But they’ll regret it someday...

The Contenders
11 People will assume your favorite color is black

It is but other people have lighter colored shirts.

My favorite colour is black

My favorite color is black

12 You're expected to have band merchandise in order to be a true metalhead
13 Annoying people who claim they listen to metal, but list bands that are not metal

Oh, yes - my biggest struggle, even on this site. I think users hate when I write this comment "This isn't metal". But when people learn more about metal and what metal is, they agree with me.

If the band isn't in the metal archives, then it's not metal.

Example Avenged Sevenfold isn't Metal and yet people call them Metal they are only Metal at times but not enough to be called Metal

14 Being asked if you are listening to the band on your shirt

I'm wearing the Nike shirt. And I'm excited to go to the Nike concert! Never seen Nike live before. It's gonna be great!...

I'm listening to DOOM:VS right now but I'm wearing an...and Justice For All shirt.

15 People thinking you're an elitist
