Top Ten Reasons Why People Shouldn't Be Put-Off by Heavy Metal

The Top Ten

1 The lyrics have meaning. Ex: Master of Puppets is about drugs changing your life.
2 The bands actually help people in need. Ex: Metallica played to deter the Taliban in Afghanistan.
3 The bands are people who just love music. Ex: Metallica, Iron Maiden, Ozzy Osbourne, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath etc.
4 They play songs about world problems. Ex: "Countdown to Extinction" received awards for endangered animal awareness, and "Fight the Silence" is about when will we stop human trafficking
5 They are not evil people like most people think. Ex: Brian "Head" Welsh left Korn because he was a Christian person
6 They put time and effort into their songs and albums. Ex: Metallica put 8 years of work into their album "Hardwired... To Self-Destruct"
7 The songs are different in many ways. Ex: In "Hardwired... To Self-Destruct" "Moth Into The Flame" and "Atlas, Rise!" are completely different
8 Metal lets people from other genres do stuff with them. Ex: Metallica sang "Moth Into The Flame" with pop legend Lady Gaga
9 Metal has variety. Ex: Metallica sings about things in life, Megadeth sings about problems in life, and Iron Maiden sings about the past
10 Heavy metal has slow songs, but they also have fast songs too. Ex: "The House Jack Built" is slow and melodic, while "Peace Sells... But Who's Buying?" is fast and thrash-type.
