Top Ten Worst Kinds of Metal Fans


The Top Ten

1 The "I Hate All Music Genres Except Metal" Fans

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.

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

2 The "Linkin Park and A7X Are The Best Bands Ever" Fans

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

I agree but linkin park is nothing compared to a7x a7x has some good songs they shouldn't be compared

Linkin Park and A7X are not metal - Ananya

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

3 The "I Only Like Metallica's First 4 Albums" Fans.

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. - ryanrimmel

Metallica's first four albums are the greatest, the three albums succeeding it were good, Death Magnetic was also a good comeback album, and the band had really great songs in the '80s that we can forgive them for making St. Anger and Lulu.

My Dad is a true Metallica fan because he loves ALL of Metallica's albums, not just the first four. In fact, that's his favorite band. - Pony

If any other band released load, it would be held as a masterpiece. They set the bar too damn high

4 The "I Hate Rock" Fans

If rock didn't exist metal wouldn't exist. I love both rock and metal. - RiverClanRocks

Without rock there wouldn't be metal. Keep listening to those old rock songs, they put a lot of effort into them. - NuMetalManiak

Rock is better than metal by a little bit in my opinion because that's how metal came alive

How can metalheads hate rock if metal is a subgenre of rock. - DarkBoi-X

5 The "Black Sabbath Isn't Metal" Fans

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... - Pony

Obviously they are rap. (Joking) - Roach

6 The "Power Metal and Prog Metal Suck" Fans

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.

Some fans don't like them but I guarantee that they probably like Iron Maiden which is a mixture of Prog and Heavy. - Roach

7 The "This Band Is The Best Thing To Happen To Music Since Humans Evolved Eardrums" Fans

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

8 The "Electronic Computer Garbage Is Talentless Noise" Fans

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

Innovation is what makes things better. The more you can expand the depth of a genre, the more great it becomes. More to listen to - MikeTheLight

Well if its pop then yea

It is. - Roach

9 The "Anti-Lars Ulrich" Fans

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 - christangrant

Not everyone like Lars' drumming. - Roach

10 The "Metal is the Best Music Genre in the Whole Entire World" Fans

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

Guys it's all opinion. For example Thrash is my favorite genre it's a hyperbole. - Roach

But it is... - christangrant

"Best in the entire world" means no genre beats it but no genre is better by fact, it's better by each individual's opinion. - Neonco31

The Contenders

11 The "Iron Maiden Is the Best Band Ever" Fans

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 one

Wrong these people are awesome - christangrant

For the love of Lemmy, STOP! You are criticizing others opinions. - Roach

12 The "I Hate Avenged Sevenfold" Fans

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.

Overrated but still rules and its not their fault so stop blaming them

We should hate metalcore. - Roach

13 The Poser Metal Fans

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

14 The "I Hate You Since You Haven't Heard of (Insert Band)" Fans

You hate me because I've never heard of a band you know? Kinda harsh there.

I'm not gonna get angry at my parents just because they don't know Dream Theater.

I'm not going to hate someone just because they don't know a certain band I know. - Pony

Elitism. - Roach

V 7 Comments
15 The "I Only Like Megadeth" Fans

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 there

People can like one band. - Roach

16 The "Linkin Park Are Flawless" Fans

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.

Every band has a flaw but this is a opinion. - Roach

17 The "People Who Like Other Genres Are Twats" Fans

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

18 The Black Metal Fans

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.

Bug off man. Black Metal is a solid genre. - Roach

19 The "You Aren't Metal If You Don't Scream" Fans

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

Elitism. - Roach

20 The Metal Fans Who Are Stuck in the Past

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

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

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_Treasure

That's fine with me I mean I listen to Cowboys From Hell. Everyday at 200 pm. - Roach

21 The "Black Sabbath with Ozzy can't be touched" Fans

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

He can be touched after Sabbath bloody sabbath. - Roach

Sorry but Dio>Ozzy - christangrant

22 The Fans Who Make the Entire Metal Community Look Bad

Looking at you maggots. Aka, Slipknot fans. - IronSabbathPriest

Especially the ones who murder just to make themselves look "cool"!

Sad but true - there are such fans. - Metal_Treasure

Like you? - Roach

23 The Elitist Metal Fans

We should've grouped them from the start. - AdamDestructorJr.

This should be number 1 - Neonco31

yeah - christangrant

24 The "Motorhead Isn't Metal" Fans

Lemmy himself says that Motorhead aren't metal. But they obviously have metal in some of their songs. - IronSabbathPriest

25 The "Modern Metal Sucks" Fans

This is why the metal fans are stereotyped as evil!

26 The "Metal Haters Are Wusses" Fans

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'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 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

27 The Close-Minded Fans

This one too should be higher - Neonco31

Stereotypical list item - christangrant

28 The "I Hate Babymetal" Fans

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.

Because of the name? Lol - Neonco31

29 The "Metallica Is The Best Band Of All Time" Fans

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

They aren't the best, but they're still very good. - Userguy44

But... they are...

30 The Nu Metal Fans

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

Nu Metal>>>>>>Real Metal - DarkBoi-X

How are we bad? No explanation? Ok then. e.e - LemonComputer

31 The Fans Who Bash Other Metal Subgenres
32 The "Metallica Is Overrated" Fans

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

33 The "Megadeth is Better than Metallica" Fans

And they triggered when you say vice versa but anyways, Metallica is better than Megadeth and that's my opinion - Neonco31

Yeah agreed - christangrant

34 The "I Hate Linkin Park" Fans

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.

Sorry for hating LP. I'm so sorry for having musical tastes. - AdamDestructorJr.

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

36 The Fans Who Call Blood on the Dance Floor Metal

OH GOD YES how the f is that sh! t metal? - christangrant

37 The Fans Who Ignorantly Bash Pop, Rap, Electronic, Country, Etc

And say they started it.

38 The “Korn sucked after David Silveria left” Fans

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

39 The "I Hate Rap" Fans

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.

40 The "Tool Sucks" Fans

I like some of Tool's music I've found out through Guitar Hero. - LemonComputer

Hooray! More bigoting! - AdamDestructorJr.

41 The ''Evanescence Isn't Metal'' Fans

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.

42 The "I Listen to Black Metal and Kill and Sacrifice People" Fans

Stereotypical list item number 2 - christangrant

Okay this is stupid. - Userguy44

43 The "Black Metal is an Ideology and a Movement of Satanism" Fans

"Black metal is SOUND. Not an ideaology."... Euronymous (from Mayhem) would say otherwise, but he's dead

Black metal is SOUND. Not an ideaology.

44 The Fans That Caused Real Life Crimes Because of the Lyrics in Their Favorite Metal Songs

Some people should really learn the difference between fiction an reality.

Varg is still a retard. - AdamDestructorJr.

45 The "Metal Makes You a Better Person" Fans

Not always true - Neonco31

46 The Fans Who Just Infight Instead of Supporting Artists and Letting Other Listen to Whatever Metal Band They Want
47 The "I Hate Electronic Music" Fans

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

48 The Metal Fans Who Kill and Torture Animals

This would be the black metal fans.

What. - LemonComputer


49 The "Alternative Rock/Metal Sucks" Fans

I don't care about it. - zxm

This sucks - Userguy44

50 The "Marilyn Manson Sucks" Fans

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
