These aren't all bad metal bands but their fans are pretty pathetic

The Top Ten

1 Megadeth Megadeth Megadeth is an American thrash metal band from Los Angeles, California. Megadeth was formed in 1983 by guitarist Dave Mustaine and bassist David Ellefson, shortly after Mustaine was fired from Metallica. They have released 15 studio albums to date, and have gone through many lineup changes, with Dave more.

Worst fanbase in metal. All they do is listen to holy wars on repeat for 5 hours, talk smack on other big four bands, mostly metallica, and worship dave mustaine like a god (even though he kinda is).

Their fans never stop thinking about talking trash on Metallica. They are very delusional too. - Sabbath

All we do is talk trash about Metallica, eh? Stop making pathetic assumptions and generalising and entire group of fans. - gemcloben

Shut the hell up. The majority of your fanbase is cancerous. You may be an exception, but I doubt it. - SoldierOfFortune

Look, I love megadeth. But their “fanbase” is actually more of a Metallica hatebase. And they don’t treat megadeth as a band, they treat it as if it was “Dave Mustaine And Co.” Who by the way, is a good Guitarist but a total douche - GreenDayFan21

Shadows (Vocals), Synyster Gates (Lead Guitar), Zacky Vengeance (Rhythm Guitar), Johnny Christ (Bass Guitar), and The Rev (Drums). more.

This must be the first in this list, their fanbase are just a bucnh of emos getting butthurt when you say this band sucks.

Metalcore fangirls are just annoying in general - Lem

4 Overkill Overkill Overkill is an American thrash metal band, formed in 1980 in New Jersey. They have gone through many line-up changes, with singer Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth and bassist D.D.

They're one of the most underrated thrash band what the hell

Overkill? You complain about true hardcore thrash metalheads, and you also complain about posers? Make your mind up. - gemcloben

5 Cannibal Corpse Cannibal Corpse Cannibal Corpse is a American death metal band from Buffalo, New York, formed in 1988 . The band is known for their graphic album covers, explicitly violent lyrics and song titles like "I C** Blood" The group got into mainstream after performing the song "Hammer Smashed Face" in the 1994 film Ace Ventura: more.

The only times CC fans annoy me is when they say they're the best death metal band. That crown belongs to Death. - IronSabbathPriest

Why does this band exist? Same with Blood On The Dance Floor. - RiverClanRocks

Riverclanrocks, don't comment on something you don't have a clue about. Take your childish closed minded views elsewhere. - gemcloben

I do know about this band. And I don't like them. I can have my own opinion, thank you very much. - RiverClanRocks

They're really nasty only time I really listen to em is on Halloween. Anything rape type from this band makes me sick

6 Slipknot Slipknot Slipknot is a Heavy Metal band formed in 1995 from Iowa. The band released their first album in 1999 and was well received by critics and fans. The group gained success after the release of their second studio album, "Iowa". more.

I like slipknot, does that make me a poser? No. Stop talking rubbish. So stop calling other people posers to make yourself feel special or superior. - gemcloben

They are also another poser fan base just like Korn. Slipknot fans used to wear paintball masks to school with Slipknot shirts along with a chain wallet. It cracked me up. - Sabbath

I love slipknots music ( not the mask ) and if anybody has a problem with it they can suck it.

7 Korn Korn Korn is an American Nu-Metal band from Bakersfield, California, formed in 1993. The band's current lineup includes founding members Jonathan Davis, James "Munky" Shaffer, Brian "Head" Welch, and Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu, with the addition of Ray Luzier, who replaced the band's original member, David more.

Korn fans are just a bunch of wanna bees and they think music with bad language is awesome. Korn fans used to go out and buy Adidas clothes just because Jon Davis did. That's called being a poser. - Sabbath

I love korns debut so don't call me stupid

8 Slayer Slayer more.

Annoying, just like slayer is the only band in the universe. Plus that god dman "SSSLAAAYEER! " is so cringy

9 Marilyn Manson Marilyn Manson Marilyn Manson is an American rock band from Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The Contenders

11 Dream Theater Dream Theater Dream Theater is an American progressive metal band from Boston, Massachusetts. The band was formed in 1985 under the name of "Majesty", only to change its name to Dream Theater later. more.

Honestly I think that the concept of all DT fans being snobs is kind of outdated now. You're more likely to find prog snobs in the Opeth and Steven Wilson fanbase. Shame really as they're like my two favourite bands. - IronSabbathPriest

This shouldn't be here dt fans are nice

"Look at me, long songs with technicality, I'm better than you." This only applies to Opeth and Tool, Not DT - SoldierOfFortune

The most critically acclaimed period for the band was from 1983-1989. With vocalist Bruce Dickinson, bassist Steve Harris, lead guitarist Dave Murray, rhythm guitarist Adrian more.

Actually they're cool because maiden is one of the best bands of all time. Hand down

Ghost consists of 5 masked instrumentalists, known as The Nameless Ghouls, and a demonic anti-pope known as Papa Emeritus. They have released 3 studio albums, 1 live album and 2 EPs. Each album brings in a new version of Papa more.

More annoying within the fanbase; the groups are the Tobias Forgers (ONes who stand behind him because he wrote all the music) Nameless Ghoulees (ones who stand behind them because they didn't get paid.) The Opus Eponymousers (People who want then to recreate the first album over and over again.) The Posers, and the Fangirls. - SoldierOfFortune
