Top 10 Reasons to Love Heavy Metal

Now before you all ask, I want to say I'm not one of those ignorant and biased rock/metal fans on this website and this isn't a list trying to force people to love metal. I like all kinds of music. But I honestly think metal gets really accused of being "satanic" more than any other music genre. metal is not satanic ok? It's just harmless entertainment. Metal can actually prevent people from suicide and murder because most metal lyrics say you are not the only one that is angry in the world.
And you people do know that Christian Metal exists right?

Anyway, here are the top 10 reasons to love heavy metal. Just a reminder, this list is not trying to force you to love metal. Enjoy whatever you want.

5 Great Guitar Riffs
6 It Isn't Overplayed
