Stupidest Reason to Hate a Metal Band

The Top Ten
1 Because they are popular

Elitists hate bands for this reason.

Metallica is popular, and they are still making good music to this day.

Liking Metallica or Avenged Sevenfold does not make you a poser.

2 Because of where they are from

No, people don't hate them for where they are from. Some people actually ignore them. For example, Fokofpolisiekar is a great African band. I don't understand their language either, but I like their music. People don't hate them. They simply ignore them.

Would somebody seriously hate a band for a reason like this? It's their music that counts - all decent bands deserve to be appreciated, no matter where they come from.

Just because Pantera is from the South of the USA doesn't mean they are a bad band.

3 Because they are a Christian band
4 Because they are loud

Indeed. A genre label like heavy metal doesn't exactly scream soft and quiet, now does it?

Being painfully loud is a brain-numbing cover for crappy music.

Just lower the volume.

5 Because they made one song you didn't like

Every music artist under the sun, even the best ones, has created songs some people may not like.

6 Because the populars at your school hate them

This is silly. Popular kids are renowned for liking generic music. Why would you choose to like generic music because of kids you won't be hanging out with ten years from now?

7 Because of their name

A bad band name doesn't mean bad music. Don't judge a book by its cover, after all.

A better name for this list would be "Stupidest Reasons to Hate a Music Artist."

This is a very stupid reason to hate a band.

8 Because they are considered nu metal
9 Because someone left the band

Some people hate Metallica just because they kicked Dave Mustaine out of the band.

10 Because you don't think the band members are hot

I bet some Black Veil Brides fans dismiss actual bands just because they're not "attractive" enough. Like, music is about the music, not their image.

(Not a hater of BVB. I honestly like a couple of their songs.)

The Contenders
11 Because they changed their sound

It depends - if they changed their sound for the better, it is stupid to hate them.

Just because Metallica changed their sound doesn't mean the Black Album, Load, and Reload are bad albums.

12 Because of their image

Yes, there is no need to judge a band because of their image created by online haters and the media.

This goes for Glam Metal and Black Metal bands.

What happened to "don't judge by looks?"

13 Because they cut their hair
14 Because they switched the lead vocalist
15 Because of their opinion

Megadeth's Dave Mustaine may be controversial for his opinions, but that doesn't take away from his musicianship, for example.
