Worst Stereotypes About Metalheadsryanrimmel
The Top Ten
Satanism is based on rational thought and self survival, which is why its not popular.

I hate it when people think you worship Satan just because you listen to songs with lyrics about the devil.
I am truly sick and tired of this stereotype! I'm tired of being called a gosh darn Satanist! Even my mom call me one once because I said I like metal, as did my acquaintance, who also said it was just screaming into a microphone while saying the same thing over again. -_- He's the exact quote from my acquaintance when I asked him to demonstrate what he thought of when I told him metal music, "I know your mom is dead! (x20)" He screamed the whole thing, and right then and there I wanted to blast some Iron Maiden and Dio into his ears. - LostDream258
I've said this before I can worship whoever I want. I'll leave you to figure that one out. - Roach
I'm only mean if you piss me off or if I'm in a bad mood. - RiverVibeZ
Only when you bully fans of pop music, calling it stupid because you think its cool to call it stupid.
Only when they slag off the most slagged off singer on here who is the opposite to metal and wouldn't sing metal ever.
I''m a nice guy, the only time I'm 'mean' to someone is if they are 'mean' to me - ryanrimmel
Absolutely not one, I take up different sports apart from listening to any metal
I'm 14. Of COURSE I drink. It's not that it's UNSAFE or anything. - Cyri
I am. - Roach
I don't even drink haha - ryanrimmel
Nah. - RiverVibeZ
Depends on my mood. - Roach
I shouldn't have to explain why I'm not racist - ryanrimmel
Someone asks me who I'm listening to, if I don't say Black Sabbath, iron maiden, or Metallica, they say "I don't like screamo." - ryanrimmel
So annoying when they just call our bands screamo. - EvilAngel
Oh My God I told my friend that we should listen to Metallica and he said "I don't like that screaming music"
Some probably are but the majority aren't into hard drugs. - RiverVibeZ
Sabbath was just look at a Ozzy interview. He is messed up. - Roach
I can assure you that I am clean - ryanrimmel
I know two metalheads who absolutely HATE hip-hop music, so I made them listen to Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp a Butterfly. That really changed one of their opinions, but the other called it a trashy waste of space and said it was really bad. I don't know him anymore.
Not really true. I believe all metalheads should know their roots - blues and rock. And Jazz of course. - IronSabbathPriest
No true at all. I listen to metal, rock, classical, and even some jazz and older country. I say older country since most country music nowadays sounds the same to me. - LostDream258
I like to consider myself a metal head but I will listen and try to appreciate EVERY genre.For instance I greatly enjoyed Kendrick Lamar's song "King Kunta" for drawing inspiration from historical (although relatively fictional) sources. He plays his songs with a live band as well rather that just rapping over a premixed track without his vocals on it.
Again, I have no criminal record. Don't worry about that - ryanrimmel
Oof, I'm an Atheist. - RiverVibeZ
Tom Arya of Slayer is Catholic. - DarkBoi-X
I am christian
Have you heard Dave Mustaine on religion? - IronSabbathPriest
Well I strongly dislike religious EXTREMISTS, as they are the ones holding humanity back. - ryanrimmel
I am very unreligious. - gemcloben
I will admit that I'm close minded, especially when it comes to music. - RiverVibeZ
Just because we listen to metal most of the time does not mean we hate all kinds of pop.
You HAVE to be open minded to listen to metal music. The most popular bands among the metal community are still very obscure to most people - ryanrimmel
Yes... the worst thing about this is, that its partly true unfortunately.. Several metalheads (not all of course) judge others by music taste and act like bigots towards non-metalfans. This sucks! Especially because those idiots give all metalfans a bad name. - Flav
I love to mosh, but that doesn't make me violent. The violent lyrics that bands like Cannibal Corpse and Slayer use are based on serial killers and horror movies. It is no different than any horror movie you've seen. - ryanrimmel
Someone who listens to DSBM songs is not necessarily suicidal.
More of a punk thing, even then its not particularly true - xEliHbkx
I just hate politics. - Cyri
Eh, I am in between for this one. I like the democratic social views and the republican economic views. I'm not too sure what that is called. - ryanrimmel
Do people seriously believe this? Metalheads don't dress like emo or listen to the same music as them. - DarkBoi-X
