Top Ten Struggles of Being a Metalhead

Ok, these may have not happened to every metalhead. If none of these never happened to you then good for you. If these ever happened then tell me your experience.

The Top Ten

1 People thinking you're a devil worshiper

Metal isn't satanic and those people need to stop whining about it. Black Sabbath even wrote a Christian song "After Forever" which proves that they aren't satanic.

I'm a Christian and I Love Metal. People are too quick to judge. - Stevenuniversefangirl

Yes, this list is very relatable. - Metal_Treasure

I’m a major metalhead and I’m an atheist. Im fact, when I told some kids I know that I like metal, they almost thought I worshiped “the devil”. I told them that it was incorrect metal stereotype. - PhoenixAura81

2 People claiming you're emo or goth

Those are COMPLETELY separate from each other. - Metalhead1997

RAW also I'm christian and love metal so um yeah bully me RAW say I worship satan RAW say slipknot are talaneted TEE HEE HEE say that I am dumb RAW RAW RAW

3 People who make the metal community look bad

The elitists are at fault of this. - Metalhead1997

Yes, there are such metal fans but it's true for every fanbase. - Metal_Treasure

4 People will think you only listen to Metallica

Metallica is my favorite band, but I love and know many other bands like Blind Guardian, Iron Maiden, Mägo de Oz, Judas Priest, Stravaganzza, etc. - PhoenixAura81

I listen to Metallica quite a bit, but they're not the only metal band I listen to. I mainly listen to six. Metallica, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest and Pantera, but I also like Slayer, Anthrax, and several others. - Metarock

Metallica isn't the only one. - Metalhead1997

5 People saying that it's just noise.

I don’t like it but I Ike some bands from it (Evanescence, Linkin Park) and it’s way better than Country, Folk and Classical.

All music is "just noise" what else is it? Its sound waves of using a frequency. All music is just is.

This posses me off

6 If you're black and listen to metal, people will call you "white"

I'm black and my mom thinks there is something wrong with me for hating rap music. I think there is something wrong with her liking modern rap music.

Ever heard of a white rapper? An example: Eminem.

7 People going crazy when you listen to genres other than metal

Quite right because we can't only listen to metal music there are also rock and indie pop and this is so good to be intersted in

8 People will think you're depressed

I am depressed - Brobusky

No, I'm just tired from headbanging too much. - Metalhead1997

9 People will assume your favorite color is black

My favorite colour is black - Brobusky

It is but other people have lighter colored shirts. - Metalhead1997

10 Being asked if you are listening to the band on your shirt

I'm wearing the Nike shirt. And I'm excited to go to the Nike concert! Never seen Nike live before. It's gonna be great!...

I'm listening to DOOM:VS right now but I'm wearing an...and Justice For All shirt. - Metalhead1997

The Contenders

11 You're expected to have band merchandise in order to be a true metalhead
12 Annoying people who claim they listen to metal, but list bands that are not metal

Example Avenged Sevenfold isn't Metal and yet people call them Metal they are only Metal at times but not enough to be called Metal - christangrant

Oh, yes - my biggest struggle, even on this site. I think users hate when I write this comment "This isn't metal". But when people learn more about metal and what metal is, they agree with me. - Metal_Treasure

13 People bullying you for it

It happens - SoldierOfFortune

14 Being the only metalhead in school...

True struggle. Every young thrasher goes through it.

There is another metal fan at my school, but I’m the biggest metalhead in my school. In 8th grade, I was the only one in the grade who knows about metal, let alone likes it (no one but me in the grade knows Metallica unless I told them about it). - PhoenixAura81
