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

I'm a major metalhead and I'm an atheist. I'm fact, when I told some kids I know that I like metal, they almost thought I worshiped "the devil". I told them that it was incorrect metal stereotype.

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.

2 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.

3 People claiming you're emo or goth
4 People saying that it's just noise.

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.

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

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, M├Ągo de Oz, Judas Priest, Stravaganzza, etc.

6 People bullying you for it

I don't get bullied, but I once got told off for playing a Mayhem song on my class TV.

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

I've tried getting other people into it, but it just doesn't work.

True struggle. Every young thrasher goes through it.

The Contenders
11 People will assume your favorite color is black

My favourite colour is Dark Blue. However, Black would definitely be in my top 10.

It is but other people have lighter colored shirts.

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.

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!...

15 People trying to play Taylor Swift around you
16 People thinking you're an elitist
