10 Things Elitist Metalheads Hate the Most

The Top Ten

Pop Music

Metalheads who universally disregard all pop are just posers. They hate it because it's easy and popular to hate. Somwhere buried inside all the garbage autotuned nonsense and monstrosities created by the same two producers in a swedish pop factory there are actual artists with musical talent there. You have to respect that.

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

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

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

Popular Metal Bands

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.

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.

To me a7x is a metal boy band. Even though I tried them, I can't get into them.
Metallica completely sold out, there is no denying it, I mean they aren't even metal at this point

"Oh, I love this band! Why aren't people listening to this? This band will kill 1D and Justin Beiber! "
Band wins a Grammy and becomes popular
" sellout they are posers"
The typical journey of the metal elitist.

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

Stupid emos

Five Finger Death Punch Five Finger Death Punch, often shortened to Five Finger or Death Punch, also abbreviated as 5FDP or FFDP, is an American Alternative Metal/Alternative Rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Formed in 2005, the band's name comes from the kung fu movie The Five Fingers of Death.

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

Because it is crap, simple

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.

Deathcore

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.

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

WHO KIND OF TRUE DIE HARD METALHEAD WOULDN'T?

Scene Bands

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

Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold is an American heavy metal 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

It's true. They hate them just as much as they hate 5fdp.

Glam Metal

The thing with these people is that they see it as an equivalent of pop in the "metalness" spectrum, and end up despising it in the worst cases. I actually enjoy this subgenre of metal; in fact, there are some very good glam bands/artists like Ratt, Lita Ford, Winger, and pretty underrated ones such as Heavy Bones, Extreme, Real Steel, E.M.N., and lots more.

In fact, most "metal-heads" go with their "exceptions", like Motley Crue, Dokken, 80s Pantera, etc.; in fact, here's a message to them: Give some more bands a try and prepare your opinion to be changed!

To be fair, glam is crap

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.

If it's a fusion between metal and something else, it's not just that something else, and it's not just metal. It's both.

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

When People Call Metal Screamo

I'm not an elitist.In fact I actually like EDM,Rap and Alternative more than Metal but Metal is still awesome.Anyways heavy metal is not screamo.Screamo is just a more aggressive version of emo music with more screaming than typical emo bands like My Chemical Romance or FOB.Heavy Metal isn't just screaming only Death Metal and Black Metal are like that but Alternative Metal,Groove Metal,Thrash Metal,Nu Metal(Yes I like it) and Metalcore(Yes I also like that) are amazing.Some Metalcore or Post Hardcore bands like Asking Alexandria,Bring Me The Horizan and Black Veil Brides can be called screamo but usually they have more singing than screaming but they can scream a lot.-DarkBoi-X

Anyone who calls metal screamo is just retarded.

I hate this too...

The Contenders

Rap/Hip Hop

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

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.

And you're saying this because it's your favourite band..
But truth is the truth, Babymetal isn't metal...none of your efforts will change that.

Babymetal is the second worst thing hit metal after Attila.

I hate this band more than any musician or band

Any genre (especially metal) can be diverse.

Coldplay Coldplay are a British rock band formed in 1996. The band consists of Chris Martin (lead vocalist and pianist), Jonny Buckland (lead guitarist), Guy Berryman (bassist) and Will Champion (drummer and backing vocalist). Manager Phil Harvey is often considered an unofficial fifth member. The band renamed ...read more.

Coldplay's A Rush of Blood to the Head and Parachutes were masterpieces, other than those, they have a solid reason to hate this band.

Breakdowns
Country Music

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

Smooth Jazz

^ No, Ryan, Metal music is not influenced by jazz. Just because you think it would be a cool thing doesn't make it true. Metal was born out of rock, which was born out of blues. Jazz was also born out of blues, though that doesn't make jazz and metal related in any way. Also, smooth jazz -despite what the name implies- is not a subgenre of jazz music, but a subgenre of pop music. Any jazz musician can confirm this fact for you.

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

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).

This is so stupid. Metallica are the best band ever. All metalhead like them. I have been listening to them since I was 6

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

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

Metallica is a great band

Classical

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

Unless it is a cover of a great song or symphonic I do not like classic.

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.

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.

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

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

Elitist and Metal maniacs are two different things.

Reggaeton
Electronic Music

I can't listen to something knowing that no instruments are being played

Metalcore

Sad. my life is all about metal. Mainly metalcore.

Pretty sure most people, not only metal elitists hate this obnoxious prick.

Nu Metal

I like Korn and the Deftones. But I hate when bands try to cross rap and metal. It doesn't work
