Top 10 Most Overused Rock & Metal StereotypesRock & Metal two popular music genre have quite a lot of overused stereo types. For this list I`m counting down the most overused stereo types of both genres. NOTE: I don't believe in these stereo types but I`m rather against them hence why the word overused is in the list. If there's any stereo types I forgot add them.
The Top Ten
Neither genres are sexist and stop making this stereo type a thing.
Where did this even come from? - 3DG20
All stereotypes make me LOL every time I see them. About this one, guess what: screamo isn't a metal subgenre, it's a punk subgenre - screamo is a subgenre of emo and emo is a style of post-hardcore that emerged from hardcore punk. There's no metal in this, it's punk-based but people think it's metal because of the stereotype - metal is the genre with screaming.
Of course metal isn't just screaming but metal singers use screams to express emotions. And what's so wrong with that? The Beatles are praised for their screaming! - Metal_Treasure
Actually if you bothered to listen to the genre there's more to it then just screaming...
Screaming vocals really aren't inherently a bad thing. Heck, the amount of talent it takes to do them without damaging your vocals in record time is quite admirable. - NiktheWiz
Metal and scream-o aren’t even the same thing... - 3DG20
Only 4 types of people would say that metal is talentless: ignorant, biased, delusional and jealous. Actually there is a "visitor" of this site who is a combination of these 4 - he wrote the dumbest comments on my lists. Many users (not only metal fans) hate him for a reason. - Metal_Treasure
Really? Last I checked trying to play "Master of Puppets" took actual talent.
Wait, people are actually delusional enough to say this (being sincere here)? - ProPanda
Look, it’s okay not to like metal. I don’t listen to it myself, but to whoever thinks it takes no talent, let’s see you try to master something as complex as many metal songs. - 3DG20V 1 Comment
No it's not just noise it's real music.
I think people are too stupid to understand sounding of metal. They're have no musical taste.
I’m tired of hearing this from people at my school who don’t understand the true meaning of metal.
No they don't always party, stop assuming they do before you know what the hell you're talking about.
Not every rock band is under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
*Facepalm* More emotions can be displayed in metal songs other then angry and aggressiveness...
I am 14 and listen to metal, I even went to see cradle of filth and Ozzy Osbourne and I am going to see my favourite band iron maiden next month
This one cracked me up... because it's so dumb and inaccurate. Even on this small site Metal is at #2 on the list 'Top Ten Music Genres That Teens Like'. TEENS. - Metal_Treasure
No not true, I'm 12 and listen to a lot of metal.
Rock music has more than songs about sex and drugs, honestly pop music literally has songs about the same damn topic but it's done 10x worse.
I don't like this stereotype - lovestarlist
Most of them aren’t even about sex or drugs. - 3DG20
This stereo type needs to die in a hole! Metal music isn't satanic, it might be heavier then a lot of genres but it has nothing to do with the devil ffs.
To be honest I am an atheist and I do not worship satan the at all
This makes me laugh
This makes me so angry! I could see why people think Black Metal Is satanic, because It’s made to sing about the Devil. But Heavy Metal? No, Not all of It. Also whoever made this a stereotype they have obviously never heard of Christian Metal. - MegadethFan07V 1 Comment
Not all metalheads are angry and violent if you believe that you got some serious issues...
Not true at all I also listen to Punk, Grunge, Alternative and Blues so not legitimate.
I listen to Metallica and other metal bands but I also listen to rap like NF
"Hello? There are those who had spiky hair and are still called metalheads
It's too edgy but not violent at all really.
No thanks that's kinda cringey - EliHbk
