Top Ten Worst Things About Metal


The Top Ten

1 Pop bashers

I'm not supporting pop music but when metal heads sit behind a computer and have to bash pop artist to make metal look better then that's pathetic - Sabbath

You can't hate the whole genre of pop just because of the significant portion of the garbage songs you hear on the radio.

It just annoys me so much. Not all pop and rap is bad. Pop artists and rappers like Michael jackson and tupac have talent and real meaning behind their music.

I mainly listen to EDM, and people keep thinking I have no taste and goes like "oh you like EDM your manhood is in question LISTEN TO SOMETHING EDGY LIKE METAL YOU LIL (insert swear word)" Metal listeners should be more open to other genres. Turn up some EDM and enjoy the great sounds. - MChkflaguard_Yt

2 Elitist Metalheads

This, I will agree with. They won't let kids get into the genre without bashing them constantly for their music tastes. They will call you a poser just for liking other stuff as well. I am a metalhead, but this has got to go. - Caleb9000

Just because you don't like it doesn't mean it's not metal - SoldierOfFortune

Most of them like only Metallica and hate Megadeth (or vice versa) and say everything else is fake

3 Stereotypes

"You got to be dark, dull, fat, drunk, high". Criticize people, for again being too pop, slay dragons, wear stuff with thorns. Posters, war craft - metal is about passion towards music of any kind, not just itself metal. We like tougher alternative, psychedelic, some of us are mad enough to listen towards indie bands and follow post-punk revival movement, old rock sometimes. Even bleeding Brit-pop. It's about passion towards music. You can be dressed as a smartass, nerd or a hipster, and claim Judas Priest had the top guitar techniques back in 80's (actually before they embraced NWOABH, riffs used to be more complex). I like to wear a neat shirt, clean shoes, brogues, head phones and turn on some Motorhead sometimes. P.S. owning collection of 30 t-shirts with band logo doesn't make you a true fan of music.

4 Haters

Why not accept everything for what it is?

5 Metal Haters

I'm talking about people who ignorantly view Metal as satanic and have no real messages.

6 Megadeth fanbase

Megadeth is my second favorite band only to Black Sabbath, but I don't understand why people can't like Megadeth AND Metallica. Personally I love them both.

Megadeth are my fave band as are metallica anthrax slayer pantera guns n roses ac/dc helloween dragonforce hendrix all greats

7 Technical death metal fanboys

Think they're above everyone - wolphert

8 Metalheads who are biased
9 Bass players that use a pick

What's wrong about playing the bass with a pick?

Absolutely illogical reason.

1. Is Paul McCartney, Roger Waters or Dee Dee Ramone a metal bassist? No. So non-metal bassists use picks too.
2. Using picks for playing bass guitar don't make them bad. Yes, if you ask me if finger-playing technique requires more skills than using picks, I'd say absolutely. But as a matter of fact sometimes some bassists have to use a pick. Even if they can play bass guitars without picks. - zxm

17 Thrash metal fanboys

Yeah, I too think thrash metal is overrated. But I can't say anything about it. It's their opinions. - zxm

Thrash is very good but the close minded nutjobs who accept no other genre bash the others are dumb fair enough jb is bad but accept mj the beatles adele ed sheeran and that they have talent

18 People saying that metal makes you a better person
19 Cover killer nation

What? He's an excellent reviewer. He's passionate and he is all about the music. Not everything has to be joyful. - Caleb9000

He doesn't really seem that happy in most of his videos.

20 Close-mindedness

We could say the same about the mainstream. - Caleb9000

I am so sick and tired of you retarded Metalheads out online saying "Oh Grunge sucks! It takes no talent whatsoever! " I mean what wrong with you genre hating people? Grunge does take talent and it talks different kinds of things. You people bashing bands like Nirvana and Alice in Chains, saying "these bands suck! They're the reason we have all these Emo bands today! " Their goals were never to bring Emo bands into the mainstream. Ok? They were not trying to bring Emo music into the mainstream. They just wanted to make music and sing about other important stuff. And for all those Emo bands you guys talk about, maybe they are really messed up in the head and want to kill themselves. You people should've known this thing when you were 4, music doesn't make you Emo. Only you make yourself Emo. It's your choice. Your choice to cut yourself.

And you Metalheads also keep bashing other genres like Pop, Rap, Country, And R&B. I know that it's all trash today but if ...more

We aren't all like that I agree closed mindedness is an issue in metal
