The Top Ten

1 That all metal heads are satanic

I'm a HUGE metal fan and I'm atheist. - PhoenixAura81

I am a humongous metal fan and I'm Catholic - MattAffterburner

I am a death metalhead who is also a devout hindu.

I'm not a metalhead (I'm a fan of electronic music) but this is just wrong. A bunch of Black Metal bands are satanic but most metal fans listen to Heavy Metal and even Alternative Metal. Saying that all metal fans are satanic is like saying all rappers are cop killers.-TheCoolGuy1

2 That all metal fans hate pop music

I like some pop music. I HATE pop from 2016 and beyond unless there were some non-mainstream pop I missed. I like pop the best from 2009-2011 (there are some exceptions like that dreadful "song" called Baby). - PhoenixAura81

I love Pop (Taylor Swift, YEAH! ) and Metal, duh... - Neonco31

3 That all metal fans are elitists

There are no such thing as a "Metal Elitist" and plus most of the people who use that term are hypocrites because they are usally by defintion an "elitist" of something else (Usally Pop Music, Rap Music, Metalcore, and Deathcore) so their "insult" is invalid - christangrant

4 That all metal fans disrespect opinions of people who like other genres of music

Actually, I have no idea how one can judge a person on the basis of their music tastes
..Because it doesn't make sense people! Haha! , I would like to say - that I mind my business when it comes to disrespecting others, Like what you like, simple! - Ananya

5 That all metal fans are closed minded
6 That all metal fans are terrible people

I've said this before but it's worth saying again. Metal fans are the friendliest, most laidback and easy-going people I've ever met. I have two brothers; both of whom are severe metalheads with huge hearts and smiles. - Britgirl

7 That all metal fans are stupid
8 That all metal fans listen to is metal

We listen to it mainly, yes, but we like other genres! - Metalhead1997

I really like Heavy Metal music(Especially Alternative Metal,Power Metal,some Metalcore and some Thrash Metal) but ny favorite music genre is industrial(A genre of electronic music with dark and provocative lyrics that sounds epic when combined with Rock music) and I also like l also like some Rap,Dubstep,Punk Rock and Alternative.-DarkBoi-X

9 That all metal fans have little knowledge of music

I know a lot of great music. - PhoenixAura81

Ever heard of Metal_Treasure? - Userguy44

I actually know a lot about it. - Metalhead1997

10 That all metal fans think metal is the only good genre

Why is this on the list basically three times? - somelifeonaplanet

The Contenders

11 That all metal fans are depressed
12 That metalcore fans are posers.

This one is a stereotype used by elitist metal fans. - somelifeonaplanet

Obviously not all Metalcore fans are posers, however all the ones who claim bands like BVB, Asking Alexandria, BMTH and other bands like them are their favorite metal bands AND they are the only bands they listen to then they are posers I should also mention that not everyone who likes Extreme Metal is an "elitist" further more why is elitism such a bad thing? Using "elitist" means that you are just using a last resort to childish name calling when someone disagrees with you besides the so called "elitism" in metal is actually not "elitism" it's called "Quality Control" because metal does not need to be infested with bands like the ones I previously stated (though those bands are not metal many claim them to be and not only is that wrong because they play emo music mixed with hardcore punk, those bands suck and so they are rightfully hated).

My advice is to shut the hell up about "elitism" in metal and just listen to ...more - christangrant

13 That metal fans are Nazis or white supremacists
