Top 10 Worst Kinds of Metal Fans

The Top Ten
1 The "I Hate All Music Genres Except Metal" Fans

Would have to agree. I'm a metalhead myself yet I love old school hip hop. Saying that you hate (hate is a strong word) all music genres besides metal just shows that you're close minded. Listen to other music…

People who say these kinds of things are usually pretentious metal fans. Cause usually no one gets into metal by one chance. People get into metal from many steps. And some songs can't be ignored at any cost.

You don't need to solely listen to metal to be classified as a metalhead. I listen to a lot of rock and metal, but I also enjoy listening to Ballads and EDM (though I don't listen to EDM as much. Doesn't mean I don't like it though).

2 The "Linkin Park and A7X are the Best Bands Ever" Fans

Metal elitists are really annoying as reflected in the comments down below. I'm a huge extreme metal fan (Death, Black, Sludge and what not) and I believe A7x is definitely more metal than hard rock (it's not a question about whether they are good or not, which is subjective anyway). People who say that A7x isn't metal are wearing their caps of ignorance and don't want to embrace the actual fact. Songs like Beast and the Harlot, Save Me, Bat Country, The Stage, Blinded in Chains, Blinded in Chains, Buried Alive, Paradigm etc. are a testament to this. A7x were Metalcore only in their 2nd Album. City of Evil & The Stage were undoubtedly Heavy Metal albums while Nightmare was a half and half mixture of Heavy Metal and Hard Rock. Elitists are just annoyed and frustrated that this band is way too popular and probably haven't listened to more than a couple of tracks from this band before passing their vacuous judgements. And also there are some sets of people who say that all their songs sounds the same, which I've always thought of as comments catapulted just to express loathing towards a particular band without (or vaguely) having listened to them. Almost all the metal bands sounds similar to one another take Norweigian/Old School Black Metal bands, Doom Metal bands, & Old School Death Metal bands as an example. Coming to A7x, I don't think any of their albums sound the same as they've always experimented with their style over the years. I don't think Beast and the Harlot sounds similar to The Stage, or Save Me to God Damn, or Bat Country to A Little Piece of Heaven, or Afterlife to Blinded in chains etc. etc etc. It's funny that despite not being a fan of this band, I've had to write such a long comment - Vip3r

3 The "Black Sabbath Isn't Metal" Fans

Well, more new wave bands get more influence from Deep Purple, but Black Sabbath is a still important contributor.

Is this a joke? Please tell me no one actually thinks this.

Obviously they are rap. (Joking)

4 The "I Only Like Metallica's First 4 Albums" Fans

For me this is true. The Black Album was good, it had great songs like Enter Sandman, Nothing Else Matters, Wherever I May Roam, etc. but it wasn't Metallica. It wasn't Thrash at all which is very disappointing. The albums after such as Lulu, St Anger, Load, Re-Load were all disappointing to me because it was regular Hard Rock/Heavy Metal. However, Death Magnetic had a few good THRASH songs on it, but it wasn't a 100% comeback. Since Death Magnetic is the most recent album and Metallica has an upcoming album for 2015, I think this will be a Thrash Metal comeback for them which would be sick.

5 The "I Hate Rock" Fans

Hmm, I don't get it. I have never seen a metalhead hating rock rock music. Though many don't like pop or rap music. But no metalhead hated rock music. And its not for only metalheads but also for most music fans. Even the person who says "I hate rock" is somehow connected to rock.

And rock helped creating metal. Beside classical, punk,hard and prog rock helped created metal

I prefer metal but I also like rock and I personally don't know any metalhead who hates rock. Maybe this item is too overrated on this list - it just doesn't sound realistic to me. Most of the metal fans also like Queen, Pink Floyd, ACDC, Guns N' Roses, Nirvana, and many more.

6 The "Power Metal and Prog Metal Suck" Fans

Power metal and prog metal are one of the greatest metal genres of all time. Don't know about others but personally I think these two genres are better and more unique than thrash, death or black metal.

Most people seem to hate power metal because of how cheesy some bands can be but not all of them are like that. Trust me.

Prog, like any other sub genre of metal, has its own sound. People need to stop acting like their preference is final.

7 The "This Band is the Best Thing to Happen to Music Since Humans Evolved Eardrums" Fans

Your basically saying you can't have a favorite song. When someone says this they mean it's there favorite band.

8 The Poser Metal Fans

Examples but not limited to:

1. That kid who claims to be a metalhead, yet only heard Linkin Park
2. That kid who only blasts brutal slam death, blackened funeral doom, or goregrind (which isn't really metal) just to boast how "br00tal" they are. They don't even like the music itself.

A poser is when someone wears a shirt of a band but they can't name a song of they pretend to like Metal.

Don't care about poser metal. I Just listen whatever I like.

9 The "Electronic Computer Garbage is Talentless Noise" Fans

Electronic music is simply a technological enhancement that we have to embrace. Remember when the electric guitar came? People hated it and said that it was talentless compared to opera music and others. The electric guitar was a technological enhancement that we eventually ended up embracing. Just like that, electronic music is nothing but an improvement in technology. It may not involve as much presenting skills when compared to other genres, but the preparation and assembling that needs to be done is much higher than in other genres.

10 The "Metal is the Best Music Genre in the Whole Entire World" Fans

Guys it's all opinion. For example Thrash is my favorite genre it's a hyperbole.

Hate to bring it to you, but it is in fact true.

Electronic is the best genre. Rock being second.

The Contenders
11 The "I Hate You Since You Haven't Heard of (Insert Band)" Fans

These fans sound like the absolute WORST. hating someone just for not listening to a band is absolutely absurd. No one should hate anybody for such a small, silly reason.

Just because I haven't heard of such doesn't mean I'm automatically terrible. I bet some of my friends here never heard bands like Bon Jovi or The Police but I never got mad at them for not having heard such bands

If I were that fan, I would hate everyone. Including my family, because they don't know Opeth. But thankfully, I'm not that kind of fan.

12 The Black Metal Fans

Black Metal is an art in the form of music that binds your soul with the nature. An art loses it's artistic value if it can easily be deciphered by any random creature - this statement is specifically applicable for black metal in it's purest form. Once you embrace the darkness and apathy encircling you, they'll stop haunting you. Black Metal is not merely another sub-genre of metal, it's something very personal that often goes well beyond the realms of human cognition.

I don't necessarily agree with this. I don't like black metal because of its satanic themes, but I respect its instrumental complexity. Regarding fans, I think only Extreme fans of this genre should be here ( the "varg vikernes Is my Hero" fans ).

Edit: now I love black metal but I have the same opinion as regards extremists

13 The "Linkin Park are Flawless" Fans

Okay, I love listening to Linkin Park, but even I know they aren't exactly flawless. A talented band, sure, but just because a band or artist is talented doesn't automatically mean they're flawless. And let's be real: Nobody's perfect, and there's nothing wrong with that.

Linkin Park is PROBABLY not flawless, but it's by far the most versatile band of all time.

Every band has a flaw but this is a opinion.

14 The "You Aren't Metal If You Don't Scream" Fans

There are plenty of metal bands that don't use growling/screaming in their songs, but are still pretty intense. (Electric wizard would be an example, mainly just dopethrone though). Saying that you're not metal if you don't scream is factually saying that bands like Metallica, Megadeth, Iron Maiden, etc. aren't metal.

Have you heard of symphonic metal fans that only have the operatic vocals?! Those are awesome combinations of classical and metal music!

So instrumental metal songs aren't metal? The metal vocals isn't the only important part. Other instruments are also important.

15 The "Anti-Lars Ulrich" Fans

I'm sorry for disliking your inspiration. Conflicting opinions are cancerous, we should all love Lars, regardless of what our opinions are.

I'm not huge with Lars either, but he still contributed to Metallica, which in turn contributed to metal in general.

Not everyone like Lars' drumming.

16 The "Iron Maiden is the Best Band Ever" Fans

I wouldn't say that they are the best band ever. They are one of the best metal bands though, but hey that's still subjective.

? For me they're the best metal band. But there are lots of other bands I like.

For the love of Lemmy, STOP! You are criticizing others opinions.

17 The "I Hate Avenged Sevenfold" Fans

I can see where people are coming from saying that they're overrated, but I don't really get why some people hate them as if they're the worst band ever. At worst, I just find them boring, but nothing that would warrant labeling them one of the worst bands.

Haha, I feel like some of this stuff is aimed at me. A7X aren't the worst metal band. Black Veil Brides has that honour. But I still think A7X are very overrated and nothing special.

They are very overrated. Am I a bad person cause of that?

18 The Stuck in the Past Metal Fans

Oh hell... There's the "take me back to 1982" fans, the "take me back to 1986", the "take me back to 2001", the "take me back to 2004" the "take me back to 2010", the "take me back to 2015", and that's just the first few categories that came to my mind. The problem is, while most great metal musicians are alive and kicking, some of the very greatest aren't. Many fans cannot get over that. I mean, Friedman is alive, Ozzy is (somehow) alive, there's some musicians who are alive, kicking, and under 7,000 years old... we'd all want a time machine, but there isn't one, so we gotta make do with the greats we still have. And hope that God doesn't need yet another music teacher anytime soon.

19 The "Modern Metal Sucks" Fans

Some modern metal is bad, but some is really good. Modern simply just refers to metal that's new. Jinjer I think would be considered "modern metal", but they're not bad in my opinion.

To those types of metal fans, did you forget that around 50 years ago, metal bands were also "modern" because they were new at the time? Also, you can't expect metal to keep the same sound it did 50 years ago. Rock has changed a lot, so why can't metal?

Those people Who Say "true" metal died with the black album.

20 The Close-Minded Fans
21 The "Black Sabbath with Ozzy Can't Be Touched" Fans

It's a shame that a lot of Black Sabbath fans hold the Ozzy days on such a high pedestal, and then go and rip apart anything from Dio onwards. Ozzy's era was great, no arguments there, but there's a lot of amazing post-1978 material that many fans are missing out on. Heaven and Hell, Born Again, Seventh Star, Headless Cross, Tyr, Forbidden; All overlooked classics in my eyes. I would argue that although the band's style certainly changed once Ozzy left, much of their later material can stand up to his era any day of the week. I wish more Sabbath fans would give it another chance.

22 The Elitist Metal Fans

My gosh, YES…. elitists are the absolute worst. Music is supposed to bring people together, but elitism divides people. Elitists are just incredibly rude to other people for liking something that they don't. And from what I've seen, elitists also seem to get offended really easily.

We should've grouped them from the start.

23 The "I Only Like Megadeth" Fans

Metallica is also just as awesome.

Oh don't even get me started I like both bands but in my opinion Metallica is better

24 The "Motorhead Isn't Metal" Fans

Lemmy himself says that Motorhead aren't metal. But they obviously have metal in some of their songs.

They have some metal in their songs. But I wouldn't consider them a pure metal band.

25 The "Metal Haters are Wusses" Fans

I'm a metalhead, but I think it's absolutely okay if someone dislikes metal. You don't have to like the same stuff that us metalheads like.

I'm completely fine with people not liking Metal. What boils my blood is that people go around and say that all Metal is satanic and a bad influence and they just accept it as fact.

I'm not a Christian, so I don't think Metal is Satanic because I don't believe in the Devil. I have never been interested in metal. I was never interested in it when I was a teenager or now. It's my choice. I like some pop music nowadays, I like more pop from the 00s, 90s and 80s.
