Top Ten Worst Kinds of Metal FansMcKing1003
The Top Ten
For the love of Lemmy, not all Metal fans criticize your music. Can you not take criticism? Who cares if we only like Metal and Rock? - Roach
I like metal but I also like other genres of music as well, especially rock. - LemonComputer
People who say these kinds of things are usually pretentious metal fans. Cause usually no one gets into metal by one chance. People get into metal from many steps. And some songs can't be ignored at any cost. - zxm
Or the "I hate all genres except Thrash, Black, and Death Metal" fans.V 5 Comments
Metal elitists are really annoying as reflected in the comments down below. I'm a huge extreme metal fan (Death, Black, Sludge and what not) and I believe A7x is definitely more metal than hard rock (it's not a question about whether they are good or not, which is subjective anyway). People who say that A7x isn't metal are wearing their caps of ignorance and don't want to embrace the actual fact. Songs like Beast and the Harlot, Save Me, Bat Country, The Stage, Blinded in Chains, Blinded in Chains, Buried Alive, Paradigm etc. are a testament to this. A7x were Metalcore only in their 2nd Album. City of Evil & The Stage were undoubtedly Heavy Metal albums while Nightmare was a half and half mixture of Heavy Metal and Hard Rock. Elitists are just annoyed and frustrated that this band is way too popular and probably haven't listened to more than a couple of tracks from this band before passing their vacuous judgements. And also there are some sets of people who say that all their songs ...more
Linkin Park was Nu
Avenged Sevenfold is Metalcore
I personally hate these bands but now you guys are being a genre elitist.
I don't criticize bands except for I dislike this album because... - Roach
LP isn't even metal anymore. They're a band which has done multiple genres and experiments. I do love the band's music though.
What the hell is A7X though? - LemonComputer
I agree but linkin park is nothing compared to a7x a7x has some good songs they shouldn't be comparedV 4 Comments
Because the fact remains that only their first four albums were good rest were piles of garbages. Megadeth is no good either as they've released masterpieces (*cough *) like Risk and Super Collider.
If any other band released load, it would be held as a masterpiece. They set the bar too damn high
What's wrong with that? I personally didn't like that Metallica changed their sound. But I only like the first two albums. So what's wrong with that? - Roach
For me this is true. The Black Album was good, it had great songs like Enter Sandman, Nothing Else Matters, Wherever I May Roam, etc. but it wasn't Metallica. It wasn't Thrash at all which is very disappointing. The albums after such as Lulu, St Anger, Load, Re-Load were all disappointing to me because it was regular Hard Rock/Heavy Metal. However, Death Magnetic had a few good THRASH songs on it, but it wasn't a 100% comeback. Since Death Magnetic is the most recent album and Metallica has an upcoming album for 2015, I think this will be a Thrash Metal comeback for them which would be sick. - ryanrimmelV 6 Comments
Obviously they are rap. (Joking) - Roach
Is this a joke? Please tell me no one actually thinks this.
They are a metal band but only when Dio came in Deep Purple are the real inventors of metal - christangrant
Black Sabbath created metal... - PonyV 1 Comment
I can relate but I like hard rock but I usually listen to Thrash and Extreme. - Roach
How can metalheads hate rock if metal is a subgenre of rock. - DarkBoi-X
I love both rock and metal though I listen to rock way more than metal. Disturbed all the way! - LemonComputer
If rock didn't exist metal wouldn't exist. I love both rock and metal. - RiverClanRocksV 6 Comments
Some fans don't like them but I guarantee that they probably like Iron Maiden which is a mixture of Prog and Heavy. - Roach
Two of the best subgenres. - IronSabbathPriest
Power metal and prog metal are one of the greatest metal genres of all time. Don't know about others but personally I think these two genres are better and more unique than thrash, death or black metal. - zxm
Power Metal and Prog Metal are both awesome.V 6 Comments
Your basically saying you can't have a favorite song. When someone says this they mean it's there favorite band. - Roach
Eh this could apply to any music genre to be honest - christangrant
Hyperbolizing much? - Neonco31
Not everyone like Lars' drumming. - Roach
I'm sorry for disliking your inspiration. Conflicting opinions are cancerous, we should all love Lars, regardless of what our opinions are. - AdamDestructorJr.
Shut up, that's all I gotta say. - McKing1003
Sort off agree he is overhated but at same the same time he's overrated - christangrantV 3 Comments
Electronic music is simply a technological enhancement that we have to embrace. Remember when the electric guitar came? People hated it and said that it was talentless compared to opera music and others. The electric guitar was a technological enhancement that we eventually ended up embracing. Just like that, electronic music is nothing but an improvement in technology. It may not involve as much presenting skills when compared to other genres, but the preparation and assembling that needs to be done is much higher than in other genres. - styLIShT
I used to try to do electronic music and it's pretty bloody hard. But I'm 14 so of course I'll be terrible at it compared to a 20+ year old. - LemonComputer
It is. - Roach
Electronic music is garbage thoughV 8 Comments
Guys it's all opinion. For example Thrash is my favorite genre it's a hyperbole. - Roach
Hate to bring it to you, but it is in fact true.
It's an opinion, not a fact. Don't treat your opinions as facts - Neonco31
Rock and metal many people love metV 2 Comments
A poser is when someone wears a shirt of a band but they can't name a song of they pretend to like Metal. - Roach
Don't care about poser metal. I Just listen whatever I like. - zxm
For the love of Lemmy, STOP! You are criticizing others opinions. - Roach
Iron Maiden fans are some of my favorite metal fans. - Metarock
Umm... In my opinion they are. But I love other bands as well. - IronSabbathPriest
Seriously I mean I love other bands but this band is my favorite so back off on this oneV 3 Comments
We should hate metalcore. - Roach
Opinions. - Roach
They are very overrated. Am I a bad person cause of that? - ryanrimmel
I can see where people are coming from saying that they're overrated, but I don't really get why some people hate them as if they're the worst band ever. At worst, I just find them boring, but nothing that would warrant labeling them one of the worst bands.V 5 Comments
Elitism. - Roach
Woooah harsh. I have a friend who doesn't really listen to rock, I've been friends with him for years. - LemonComputer
This list has basically dissected elitism and given it about 10 spots on the list. We could just group them, you know? - AdamDestructorJr.
You hate me because I've never heard of a band you know? Kinda harsh there.V 7 Comments
People can like one band. - Roach
Metallica is also just as awesome. - McKing1003
Oh don't even get me started I like both bands but in my opinion Metallica is better - christangrant
They are thousands more bands out thereV 1 Comment
Especially the pretentious "kvlt" morons
Bug off man. Black Metal is a solid genre. - Roach
Whoever added this, you're a stereotype. - IronSabbathPriest
True, but in all honesty it's created one of the more hilarious stereotypes in metal. The people within this group that are truly annoying are the black metal purists, and in fact most of them just troll for the lulz.V 2 Comments
Every band has a flaw but this is a opinion. - Roach
No band is flawless. - NuMetalManiak
Linkin Park is PROBABLY not flawless, but it's by far the most versatile band of all time.
They have MANY flaws.V 2 Comments
Elitism. - Roach
Be open-minded with other music genres!
I love Pop and I never criticized anyone who likes metal so why not do what I do? Be more accepting - Neonco31
Elitism. - Roach
Have you heard of symphonic metal fans that only have the operatic vocals?! Those are awesome combinations of classical and metal music!
So instrumental metal songs aren't metal? The metal vocals isn't the only important part. Other instruments are also important. - zxm
Like you? - Roach
'You hate my band? *sniff* well... *sniff* you're mom gay *sniff*' - AdamDestructorJr.
Looking at you maggots. Aka, Slipknot fans. - IronSabbathPriest
Especially the ones who murder just to make themselves look "cool"!V 4 Comments
That's fine with me I mean I listen to Cowboys From Hell. Everyday at 200 pm. - Roach
Preferring to keep to the past isn't a bad thing in my opinion. Everyone has different songs and want to still keep listening to them. It's ok to not like if a band is doing a different genre of music. - LemonComputer
The worst kinds, always stuck with their favorite genre or band or album or year or whatever. How many Metallica fans are the hardcore thrash fans that get disgusted from the black album onwards? These kinds of metal fans make all of them look bad. I am consistently looking for tons of new bands on tons of new record labels, and I would take that over the same-y thrash any day of the week. - NuMetalManiak
Yeah, for example The - Metal_Treasure
I wanted to say: Yeah, for example The "Black Sabbath with Ozzy can't be touched" Fans (sorry, something happened to my comment). - Metal_TreasureV 4 Comments
He can be touched after Sabbath bloody sabbath. - Roach
It's a shame that a lot of Black Sabbath fans hold the Ozzy days on such a high pedestal, and then go and rip apart anything from Dio onwards. Ozzy's era was great, no arguments there, but there's a lot of amazing post-1978 material that many fans are missing out on. Heaven and Hell, Born Again, Seventh Star, Headless Cross, Tyr, Forbidden; All overlooked classics in my eyes. I would argue that although the band's style certainly changed once Ozzy left, much of their later material can stand up to his era any day of the week. I wish more Sabbath fans would give it another chance. - Simba_Lennon
Sorry but Dio>Ozzy - christangrant
We should've grouped them from the start. - AdamDestructorJr.
This should be number 1 - Neonco31
yeah - christangrant
Lemmy himself says that Motorhead aren't metal. But they obviously have metal in some of their songs. - IronSabbathPriest
This is why the metal fans are stereotyped as evil!
I'm not a Christian, so I don't think Metal is Satanic because I don't believe in the Devil. I have never been interested in metal. I was never interested in it when I was a teenager or now. It's my choice. I like some pop music nowadays, I like more pop from the 00s, 90s and 80s.
I'm completely fine with people not liking Metal. What boils my blood is that people go around and say that all Metal is satanic and a bad influence and they just accept it as fact.
I don't really give a crap about Metal haters because I understand even Metal has some haters but probably those on the other side of the coin can the worse ones out there - Neonco31
This one too should be higher - Neonco31
Stereotypical list item - christangrant
It's surprising how so many people think that 3 little girls from Japan are going to completely destroy metal for all time. If that's the case, maybe those people's view is fragile in the first place. It's about as bad as the ones who think metal isn't metal unless you've gargled rocks first...
I don't hate Babymetal, they just scare me. I also get the feeling that the majority of fans are anime nerds. - IronSabbathPriest
I can completely understand that some people dislike Babymetal, but that doesn't mean you have to be a dick about it. They are very talented and hard-working, and their live performances are absolutely amazing, those people act like they've ruined the metal genre. I can see why many people don't like them, but seeing how so many purists get hurt when someone praises them is just straight up hilarious.
Oh...But I hate Babymetal more than any other music artist or group, they are just some idiotic gimmicks - AnanyaV 2 Comments
They aren't the best, but they're still very good. - Userguy44
No, they aren't the worst. But if they can't stand criticisms, and attack people personally for this, then they are the worst. - zxm
Pantera is better in my opinion but they are one of the best of all time my 2nd favorite band - christangrant
But... they are...
Nu Metal>>>>>>Real Metal - DarkBoi-X
How are we bad? No explanation? Ok then. e.e - LemonComputer
I like some Nu Metal but I'm not a bad person plsu I like all kinds of metal (Except Grindcore and Screamo) - christangrant
No! - Neonco31
I don't think it's a reason to call someone worse. Everybody has their own opinions. And overrating is a subjective thing. - zxm
They deserve their praise in my opinion - christangrant
And they triggered when you say vice versa but anyways, Metallica is better than Megadeth and that's my opinion - Neonco31
Yeah agreed - christangrant
Sorry for hating LP. I'm so sorry for having musical tastes. - AdamDestructorJr.
Just because they aren't metal? Or they mixed rap and rock? Or rock and electro? They sold out? They're overrated? Overrated does not mean bad. And we could just be more open-minded with other genres and musical styles.
Oh God. I mean, if you like to listen to the same thing for 2 hours when you go to a show (as much as a metal band can be versatile, it's still riffs, solos and singing over and over), then yeah, you hate LP... But if you like hip hop, alt.rock, electronica and yeah, even metal, all in the same show, and sometimes in the same song, then Linkin Park is the only choice you have. And that's what makes them the most unique band ever, one of the best of all time.
That long visitor comment by the triggered LP fanboy contains only inaccurate reasons:
- "there clearly catagorized as metal". Sorry, they're clearly catagorized as NOT metal by the specilized metal site Encyclopaedia Metallum (aka The Metal Archives), the most credible metal site by far. LP have no page there.
- LP "have aggresive, loud drums and gutiar riffs and screaming which is considered metal". Wrong - punk also has these features but isn't metal. Grunge guitars are loud, too. Screamo is a punk subgenre, not metal. To be metal, a band has to play metal music, music with metal ingredients. But LP music has no metal in it - it's a mix of rap, rock, punk, pop, electronic, alternative.
- "LP haters think they know what metal means and they clearly don't." Judging by the long comment of this LP fan I would say HE clearly doesn't know what metal is.
- "irrational and illogical reasons". My reasons are rational and logical: you can't make a potato soup with carrots, ...more - Metal_Treasure
OH GOD YES how the f is that sh! t metal? - christangrant
And say they started it.
Korn was fine after Silveria left. Albums like Korn III, The Paradigm Shift, and The Serenity of Suffering had Korn back at their old roots. - awesomedp900
Nah rap does suck at least most modern rap does but there is good rappers - christangrant
I can't stand rap haha - ryanrimmel
Let's be fair. With mumble rappers boasting about their bitches and money for every single song, it gets old. There is a noticeable drought in the quality of rap atm. - AdamDestructorJr.
I like some of Tool's music I've found out through Guitar Hero. - LemonComputer
Hooray! More bigoting! - AdamDestructorJr.
Well, they aren't metal, and they're overrated as a female-fronted band. But you can't deny that they're good.
They aren't metal though even the band members say that - christangrant
I love Evanescence, I'd LOVE to have a voice like Amy's. And to the people whining that her music is depressing, STFU. Seriously maybe try and understand the lyrics before judging.
Okay this is stupid. - Userguy44
Stereotypical list item number 2 - christangrant
"Black metal is SOUND. Not an ideaology."... Euronymous (from Mayhem) would say otherwise, but he's dead
Black metal is SOUND. Not an ideaology.
Varg is still a retard. - AdamDestructorJr.
Some people should really learn the difference between fiction an reality.
Not always true - Neonco31
I am not a big fan of electronic music, but these people need to learn how to shut up. Just because you don't like something it doesn't mean it's bad.
The bands use electric guitars and without electric guitars, the whole atmosphere of metal music would be boring - Neonco31
But Metal is electronic, if it's not, then it would be bad. - BorisRule
Metal fans should like some electronic in their music, after all, metal is one of the most electric genres out there! Bands like Sybreed and Disarmonia Mundi blend in electronica and metal very well. - NuMetalManiak
What. - LemonComputer
This would be the black metal fans.
This sucks - Userguy44
I don't care about it. - zxm
To be fair, MM does kinda suck though. Don't get me wrong. He's got good lyrics and all but he's never a good singer!
MM actually makes decent music.
he's ok - christangrant
