Top 10 Stupidest Reasons to Hate a Metal Genre

If you hate a metal genre have better reasoning than this.

The Top Ten

1 Because it's too loud

So hypocritical. I've had my stuff up in my headphones listening to Metallica or Diamond Head and it wasn't even that loud, and I've been told to turn it down before. Other people walk in blasting rap at full volume through their headphones, and they don't get called out AT ALL. Yeah right, like I need to turn my music down. - Metalhead1997

You have volume control? Then use it. - Metal_Treasure

Honestly, it's a wrong concept that all metal genres are loud. There are other louder genres too. - zxm

Then turn it down.

2 Because of one bad band that represents it

*Cough *Cough* Self explanatory.

That's just one band out of thousands. There's TONS of good bands out there! - Metalhead1997

Example Cannibal Corpse ruins death metals image - christangrant

3 Because you think it's satanic

People thought the same (and still think the same) about rock and roll, soul, and rock. So, yeah, this is to be expected. But there's not many satanic bands I can name, and even fewer satanic fans. - Metalhead1997

Not a good reason really.

4 Because you can't understand the meaning of the genre's songs

Then go listen to a different genre.

5 Because it's heavy

Most Metal is heavy so deal with it...

Haha, that's why it's called Heavy Metal. Why do you expect smooth midnight metal? - Metal_Treasure

Well, duh... - Metalhead1997

6 Because you think it makes you look cool

Spoiler alert: It doesn't.

7 Because people you know hate it

There's no point of listening something what others like. Each people has his/her own choice. - zxm

*Cough* *Cough* People at my school's logic right there.

8 Because it has too much screaming in it

So? Metal screams are more natural than half- assed grunge screams!

They're thinking of screamo. - Metalhead1997

9 BecauseĀ of the guitar riffs

For me it depends on the metal genre. I don't listen to thrash metal, death metal or black metal often because few notes. Rather I listen to prog, neoclassical or symphonic metal because of lots of notes. But I won't say I will hate those genres. I just don't listen it much. - zxm

I hope you would all have better reasoning than that..

10 Because it's too complex

Complex metal genres are my favorite metal genres. I am still discovering new songs. Its not for only metal, but for all genres. - zxm

The Contenders

11 Because it's popular

Not legitimate.

12 Because it doesn't fit your standards of metal
13 Because of one singer you hate
