Top Ten Reasons Why Pop Fans Are Worse Than Metal Fans

The Top Ten

1 They like the artists because of looks, not the music

Metal fans certainly don't care about the age and looks of metal musicians. Metal fans love musicians for their talent and this is an important part of the metal subculture and Metal Ethic Code. Yes, there is Metal Ethic Code which is based on shared values - this Code mostly applies to musicians but sometimes to fans. Metal genre is the only music genre with community because you have community only where you have shared values and rules.

Metal musicians don't want to look very sexy or attractive on purpose - they want to be appreciated for their music. Metal musicians are not stupid - they know that "sex sells" but they actually avoid it and this is one of the metal rules. - Metal_Treasure

Beaver, one direction, maroon 5,BTR, 5sos, Jonas brothers, Brittany spears, Taylor swift,etc. In my Spanish class, we watched a Spanish music video with hot guys. The girls were loving those guys, and always ask my Spanish teacher if we can watch it. THEY DON'T EVEN UNDERSTAND THEM. I don't care if someone looks like a deformed rhino human hybrid, if I like their MUSIC, I'll buy it. - RustyNail

Wrong. There are a lot of popular pop singers who look good and can actually sing very, very well. For example, Madonna, Christina Aguilera, Alicia Keys, Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Lady Gaga, Jessie J. You don't even look further than their looks. Their music also has meaning. Lady Gaga's "Born this way", Madonna's "Frozen", Jessie J's "Price tag", Katy Perry's "Chained to the rhythm", Michael Jackson's "Earth song", "Heal the world", "Black or white". Don't judge a book by its cover.

2 They often like an artist/band/song because it's popular and their friends like it

I listen to rock/metal music because I love it. Not because its what's cool, if I'm not in your club, I don't care. They want to fit in, I get that, but like what you want to. - RustyNail

I'm a metalhead and say it everywhere just so I don't have to listen to computerized music

3 They bash rock/metal fans for liking a different type of music

If we were all the same, this would be a horrible world - RustyNail

This is super annoying. - 906389

4 They like an artist for a short time then begin to hate them if they aren't as popular

Yes, I'm a metal fan and I would never say "I was into Iron Maiden for the summer", LOL

Metal music isn't disposable. Metal fans are the most loyal music fans - Spotify published a report on that based on their stats about all music genres.

And I actually like less popular metal bands that sound different from the metal mainstream. - Metal_Treasure

You never see a metalhead say " oh yeah I was really into slayer or Avenged Sevenfold for the summer". We like something and we are hooked - RustyNail

"I was into Iron Maiden last year, then I went into Megadeth, and now I'm into Metallica! "

That is not how it works.

5 They think all metal fans are Satanists, druggies, deadbeats, etc.

You don't know me, and if you're looking for Satanism, music is definitely not it. - RustyNail

You haven't met me. - 906389

I SO have to agree! I unfortunately became very well known a year ago on deviantart as a person whom LOVES all sorts of metal music and almost instantly their were comments all over my profile page screaming, "2edgy4me! " "emo loser! " "evil Satanist/devil worshipper! " and "you cutter! You attention whore! " and I was like, "what? I'm a devote Christian whom is not some emo weirdo whom cuts herself for attention, worships the devil and does evil things in his name, and loves to be edgy."

6 They can't tell lip syncing/autotune

Every Pop song has been tampered with especially the voice so it not the artist real voice

7 If you don't like a specific artist or genre, they bash on you

It doesn't matter what genres in metal.I'll wear one of my Pantera shirts and see a teen chick wearing a megadeth shirt. Next thing you know we're talking, next thing were close friends, then you wake up with us nude in the same bed( KIDDING, COULDN'T RESIST), then their singing on your record. - RustyNail

8 They often think songs that are covered by pop artist are an original song from that artist
9 They think there's not any more metal bands when there are

So many bands old and new, soft and heavy. If you don't listen to the music you don't know. Its actually pretty cool because of this, its like our own HUGE secret. - RustyNail

10 They think dubstep artists are talented

By their logic, pressing buttons on a keyboard is talent and shredding an electric guitar for a solid 2 and a half minutes while changing tempos midway through the solo isn't.

Makes perfect sense doesn't it?

No of course not; these people are ignorant fools who don't deserve to be on this planet.

The Contenders

11 They are very judgemental

A lot of times bands don't make songs that sound the same most pop fans hear one song from a band and hate it they don't listen to the bands other song

12 They don't understand sub genres

I don't just mean rock and metal, every music genre from pop to blues has many subgenres - RustyNail

Pop fans stop thinking that metal is oh god I hate saying this 'screamo' cause its not check out some Symphonic metal for crying out loud

13 Metal fans don't shriek whenever they meet their idol V 1 Comment
14 They are stalkers
