Top Ten Reasons Why It's Hard Being the Only Metalhead Out of Your Friends

From all of my friends I have at school, I'm the only metalhead. These are the reasons of why it's hard being the only metalhead out of your friends. I'm sorry if it's inacurrate

The Top Ten

1 Your friends mock you for liking metal and rock

If you like metal, you'd better get used to it - you will have to deal with it many times in the future. This is from my own experience. Currently this doesn't even offend me, I just ignore it. - Metal_Treasure

No, they are totally afraid to say this to me because they are aware that they'll just look stupid in front of me.

I ask my classmates do you know Led Zeppelin or Deep Purple they say no.It's a sad thing that bands like these are almost forgotten.I am one of the fewest boys of my class (no actually in whole school) who knows bands like Zeppelin or Deep Purple - zxm

like I get - catwalk

2 You can't talk about your favorite bands with your friends

Now you can talk to me and other metalheads on the Top Tens, you can make metal lists, get feedback, learn about less known metal bands and so on. Enjoy what you like! - Metal_Treasure

Me-have you heard Ironmaiden
Friend-Iron who,any ways listen to blank space by Taylor swift,it's like the worlds most awesome song way better than your...iron whatever

This person has never heard A single Maiden song yet he/she critisizes it.Grow up and give metal a chance - Toucan

3 Your friends call you weird

Not all metalheads are weird. - Userguy44

4 Your friends think you're always angry

It's just a weird way of getting happy lol

5 Your friends call you old fashioned

They'll say come on ain't Justin beiber's the most popular. - zxm

6 Your friends won't give you a chance to listen to metal

I appreciate metal, although I prefer undyed hair and bright clothing (no makeup or heavy eyeliner) so I'm not really following any stereotype, just like the music. However, most of my friends listen to country or pop, making it hard for us to agree on a song. Thankfully, my best friend also listens to a large variety, so I can just put on a random song on my phone and she's completely cool with it! Also, extremely good idea for a list! - Flowersocks2137

7 Your friends call you a satanist

Well even if I'm not a satanist, I feel like it's better than the morons calling you one.

Can they prove it? - Metal_Treasure

Can they ensure it that Justin Bieber or One Direction aren't satanist.If Metal is satanist then some of the black metal bands like Mayhem,Gorgoroth and Slayer are satanist.They are satanist cause they are admitted satanist bands.Bands like Iron Maiden,Metallica,Deep Purple aren't satanist.because they said they aren't satanist.because nobody knows who is or nor satanist.But only that matters is that who admitted themselves as satanist.Plus I love metal and I am more religious then my friends. - zxm

8 Your friends call you insane
9 Your friends call you depressed, emo, psychotic etc

Oh, I see - all stereotypes. In fact, I am the least depressed person among my friends. And I am sure that to a huge extent metal music keeps depression away from me (Canadian winter is harsh and long). I never was emo or psychotic. - Metal_Treasure

10 Your friends give you funny looks whenever they see you listening to metal

The Contenders

11 Your friends think you're aggressive
12 Your friends think metal bands are using you as a slave

Slavery is wrong. Why would metal bands like Slipknot and Korn do such a thing? - Croy987
