10 Things Elitist Metalheads Hate the Most


The Top Ten

1 Pop Music

They hate it simply because they are too close-minded to try anything else. - MoldySock

I hate pop music too, but they absolutely despise it with every fiber of their being. - MetalFoREVer1228

Pop music sucks, but if all music was serious and sad it wouldn't seem serious and sad anymore.

Metalheads dislike Pop music becuase it focuses on being mainstream and relies on sex apeal (for example) more than actual musical substance.

2 Popular Metal Bands

They could be a fan of a certain band and claim to be diehard, but when that band makes it big, they call that band a bunch of sellouts. - MetalFoREVer1228

Just because a band is popular and 'overrated' doesn't mean they are bad. Slipknot are probably the most popular metal band at the moment, but they are amazing, and definitely one of my favourite bands. - Lem

Avenged kicks ass and metal heads hate them

Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold, Slipknot, etc.

3 Black Veil Brides Black Veil Brides Black Veil Brides is an American rock band currently consisting of Andy Biersack (vocals), Jinxx (guitar), Jake Pitts (guitar), Christian Coma (drums) and Ashley Purdy (bass), that formed in 2006 in Ohio. ...read more.

They stink at fashion, and we just don't like em!

Stupid emos

4 Deathcore

Oh man whenever a metal news website posts anything about death core all the elitists get pissed off. - MetalFoREVer1228

It's like they are being payed to dislike deathcore, and not let one band from the genre into their musical taste. If there was a metalhead that likes one or two deathcore bands, but dosen't want to admit it, I would not be surprised at all.


5 Scene Bands

I myself don't like scene bands, but god the elitists throw the biggest fits about them. - MetalFoREVer1228

6 Five Finger Death Punch Five Finger Death Punch Five Finger Death Punch is an American heavy metal band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Formed in 2005, the band's name is derived from a fictional martial arts maneuver in the 2003 film Kill Bill.

Because it is crap, simple - Ananya

I can't even count the number of 5fdp posts that have been constantly bashed on by elitists. - MetalFoREVer1228

I don't know, I just think these guys get so much flak is:
1)Mainstream success
2)The alt-groove sound is so unique that it only appeals to some people.

7 Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold is an American alternative metal/metalcore (early) band, that was formed 1999 in California. Their longest lineup of members was M. Shadows (Vocals), Synyster Gates (Lead Guitar), Zacky Vengeance (Rhythm Guitar), Johnny Christ (Bass Guitar), and The Rev (Drums). ...read more.

I don't get it. In terms of reviews, metalheads will give a 4 to a Taylor Swift album, but this band, because they're called metal, will get lots of hate from elitists. Because they're a popular band that people call metal. Avenged is a hard rock band, but they still have a lot more edge than any other kind of music out now.

I'm not a huge fan of this band either but the elitists show no respect at all for them, they are even celebrating the Rev's death.

They are extremely overrated, and ripped off everyone imaginable

I wouldn't have a problem with this band if their fans weren't annoying a**holes.
Yes, they are talented, but their fans think the rev was the best drummer ever, zacky vengeance the best guitarist ever? Give me a break - ryanrimmel

9 Rap/Hip Hop

I like rap and metal, does that make me a bad person?

10 When Metal Bands That They Don't Like Are Called Metal

One thing I hate the most is when they say that a certain band isn't metal even when they R. I saw once that someone said Lamb of God is just generic Wal-Mart rock and not metal. Oh how uncultired you elitists are. - MetalFoREVer1228

Yeah, I mean really who thinks that Judas Priest isn't metal? - SoldierOfFortune

The Contenders

11 Babymetal Babymetal Babymetal is a Japanese metal idol band. Their line-up consists of Suzuka Nakamoto as "Su-metal", Yui Mizuno as "Yuimetal", and Moa Kikuchi as "Moametal".

I strongly wish that she and her crap members disband themselves, If thinks that if she barks and thinks that if it will be labelled as metal-singer then she needs electric shocks. - Ananya

It seems like you may have experienced more than you're fair share of electric shocks, because this comment reeks of severe brain damage. - MetalFoREVer1228

Any genre (especially metal) can be diverse.

Babymetal is the second worst thing hit metal after Attila.

Enough has already been said. As a parody, BM are ok. That's about it.

12 When People Call Metal Screamo

Anyone who calls metal screamo is just retarded.

14 Country Music

Most country is about the beach and nice weather and I live in a cold, nasty, rainy place - ryanrimmel

15 Breakdowns
16 Smooth Jazz

Almost all metal bands are heavily influenced by jazz, so there's that - ryanrimmel

17 Modern Bands

I hate it when people say that the only good bands are the ones that that have ben around for a long time. Metallica and Iron Maiden are amazing, I'll admit, but I prefer mpre modern bands like Slipknot, Avenged Sevenfold and Trivium. - Lem

Yeah. Just because it's old doesn't mean it's better. I mean, would you rather have a clothesrack, or a dryer? Then again, would you want a cool vintage record player, or an iPod? There are good and bad things from the past and future. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

Totally agree with you Lem. People get stuck in the past and think everything from that time period was better.

18 Metallica Metallica Metallica is an American Thrash Metal band formed in 1981 . The original lineup was James Hetfield (Vocalist and Rhythm guitarist), Dave Mustaine (Lead Guitar), Lars Ulrich (Drums), Ron McGovney (Bassist). The group came into mainstream from their Self-Titled album and the hit single "Enter Sandman". ...read more.

Metal Amino & Black Metal Amino are full of Metallica haters who are elitists. - Fretto

I swear an elitist had the nerve to say "mainstreamallica"

19 Clean singing

Not true. I'm a metal maniac and I love classic rock, punk, grunge, alternative, you name it. Almost anything rock or metal appeals to me - ryanrimmel

Elitist and Metal maniacs are two different things.

20 Classical

Like jazz, most metal bands are heavily influenced by classical so - ryanrimmel
