Top 10 Pop Artists that Are Respected by MetalheadsCaptainMowzker Pop Artists that have gotten respect by Metalheads. So if anyone tries saying that Metalheads only like "Metal" artists this list will prove them wrong for the most part. If I missed one feel free to add it. And if you disagree that's perfectly fine.
The Top Ten
His hiccups, that are a significant part of his singing style, make me burst into uncontrollable laughter and I can't stop the giggle (please, don't hate me for this, I really have no control over it).
I think he's a better dancer than singer (his voice is too thin and weak to my taste). - Metal_Treasure
This guy got me into real music! - awesomedp900
That's a very interesting comment because metalheads believe that metal is the real music. Just saying. - Metal_Treasure
A cliché choice but he's admired by people of all music preferences including Metalheads. - CaptainMowzker
I've seen quite a few Metalheads admit to liking her music on this site and I can see why. She's fairly a enjoyable singer. - CaptainMowzker
I definitely like her voice, she is immensely talented. I have a respect for her godly voice - so powerful, rich and perfect.
And I feel bad for her - her private life was such a mess. R.I.P. Whitney.
If I listen to her songs from time to time, it's for her voice and not for her music. - Metal_Treasure
Don’t really like her that much to be honest. All opinions respected. *dies*
Despite I love metal to death, I don't refuse giving credits when deserved. She is a talented singer and songwriter. Believe it or not, I was the person who was on her side when some pop and rap fans on this site described her as "fat, ugly and can't sing". Now, if a musician appearance is so important to you, perhaps music isn't your strength. Metal taught me one thing: if somebody is talented, his/her looks, age, race, origin, etc., don't matter.
My favorite Adele songs are: Rolling in the Deep and Rumour Has It (I'm not into her slow songs, not saying they are bad, they are just too depressing to me and depressing music isn't my cup of tea). - Metal_Treasure
Even Metal_Treasure likes her and to be honest she's a great singer. - CaptainMowzker
One of the few modern pop singers metalheads like. - DarkBoi-X
She gained some respect when I learned she was actually a metal fan and likes Metallica the most. She likes thrash metal! Not something softer, she likes thrash and even danced to a Metallica song at a live show! Wow, I didn't know one can dance to thrash.
She also likes Iron Maiden (a lot) and Saxon.
And yes, she likes Queen (a band I respect) and took her stage name from Queen's song Radio GaGa. - Metal_Treasure
I saw a comment on Bohemian Rhapsody saying "why do we have crap nowadays like Justin and Lady Gaga? " The irony is strong here when they are saying this on a Queen song. - 445956
The thing is, Lady Gaga is a fan of rock and metal and she named herself after Radio GaGa by Queen. - 445956
I hugely respect her creativity. Haven't listened to her music for years but the ones I've heard show her talent. - LemonComputer
Metalheads respect her because she respects metal - B1ueNewV 2 Comments
I admit she is incredibly talented - her song Hurt is one of the best vocal performances in all pop. Her vocal range is remarkable, her runs are awesome. Also, she and Michael Bolton are the singers with the most perfect pitch I've ever heard (I don't count opera singers, they are a different story).
However, there are some things I don't like: she uses autotune for some songs - she doesn't need it, she just wants to get that awful robot voice and sound like every other talentless singer in the pop industry.
She's got a great, powerful and soulful voice made for singing soul and jazz - by the way, I've heard her singing jazz with Tony Bennett and she was amazing. - Metal_Treasure
A bit iffy on this one but I'm sure that there's a few Metalheads that like her. - CaptainMowzker
They are the classical of pop music. Their songs are very well composed - of course, it's pop but it's top notch pop. I respect them for that. The singers are very good as well.
Also, many metal musicians admitted they liked ABBA and many even made metal covers of ABBA songs (see the list Top 10 Metal Covers of Abba Songs).
Even the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (London) played ABBA live and recorded a CD with cover songs. - Metal_Treasure
The first group to introduce me to music. I used to do choir in year 2 and we had to sing their songs. Not knowing any other artist or band, I was hooked. - LemonComputer
Corey Taylor of Slipknot and Stone Sour once admitted that he likes this band. - JCHOW
Even the most intense of metalhead elitists seem to like ABBA - DCfnaf
If you don't know the meaning of a word, don't use it (elitist). A metal elitist wouldn't give ABBA a chance, let alone talking about ABBA and liking them. - Metal_TreasureV 1 Comment
I can definitely understand why Metalheads would respect Prince. He had that rock-star quality about him and could shred his ass off on the guitar. - Eddiej
RIP Prince. - CaptainMowzker
I love rock and metal but I kept replaying one of her songs on Guitar Hero Live. Definitely a talented singer. - LemonComputer
And for good reason she was a talented singer who died too soon. - CaptainMowzker
Yes, I respect him. As far as I know, christangrant also likes him. - Metal_Treasure
I'm not exactly a metalhead, but being mainly a hip hop head, I can say that I've always loved Elton John's music. - Mcgillacuddy
Their riffs are dark and heavy which is enough for me to make me like them - I like about 6-7 songs, my favorite is I Feel You (I love that riff). - Metal_Treasure
Somewhat respected ig. - CaptainMowzker
I tried to get into them several times but it didn't happen - I guess they aren't my cup of tea. I liked very much one song - Surfin' USA - but it turned out the music to this song was a 100% rip off of Chuck Berry's Sweet Little Sixteen, so I basically liked Chuck Berry again and not exactly The Beach Boys. - Metal_Treasure
They sound more poppy than Rock-ish so I guess they count. - CaptainMowzker
I guess you can say that mouth in the pic is BRUTAL! - DarkMatter1997
Somebody has to find the trolls a better goal in life... - Metal_Treasure
This isn't funny - B1ueNew
I added her because I respect her for the talent she has - a great voice and songwriting skills (her music is pop but it's different than the mainstream pop;
some lyrics are poetry).
Songs I like the most:
Left Outside Alone, Heavy On My Heart, I'm Outta Love, One Day in Your Life, Sick and Tired, Paid My Dues - Metal_Treasure
More of just normal rock actually - B1ueNew
I don't listen to her but she is extremely talented, so I would say I respect her. - Metal_Treasure
Um no he might be worshipped by Indians (Not trying to be racist) but no Metalhead respects him that I know of. - CaptainMowzker
Never want to respect this band! They're violent! - Userguy44
Definitely pop music! (Sarcasm) - B1ueNew
Best pop group ever! -MetalheadSatanic666
Ummm, HELL NO - B1ueNew
I don't. And I don't know any metal fan who does. - Metal_Treasure
No, Every metalhead despises her - B1ueNew
She’s a beautiful talented kind woman but no metal
No metalhead respects her... if anything most metalheads hate her. - CaptainMowzkerV 1 Comment
Ah...no. Not me. - Metal_Treasure
You should listen to her new album if you haven't; it's much more respectable than her other ones - DCfnaf
No metalhead respects Justin Timberlake. - CaptainMowzker
Not a SINGLE metalhead I know of respects this douchebag. - CaptainMowzker
What? I don't think he was added by a metalhead. Easily - a troll item on this list. - Metal_Treasure
She gets hate by Metalheads if I recall correctly... - CaptainMowzker
Queen is Hard Rock maybe Operatic Rock at most not Pop in the slightest. - CaptainMowzker
