Worst Things About Metalheads/Elitists

ProPanda

The Top Ten

1 They can't respect opinions

All the metalheads I know don't have a problem with other genres and many even like some pop songs. In every genre there are going to be those few stubborn people. Yes, there will be some metalheads who hate everything else because "metal uses instruments", but many people have told me metal is garbage and not even music. Whether you like it or not, that's different, but to make metal music you need to understand musical theory and there is still melody. It's definitely music, at least. This list is incredibly biased. All of these points can go both ways other than some metalheads not appreciating other types of metal.

@WonkeyDude98 - man, you are totally wrong: "metalheads like you can't accept the fact that some people like pop". There are no such signs on my lists so please, don't attribute to me things that aren't mine. I accepted this fact and I'm OK with it. I never made any single list about "Worst Things About Pop Fans, Pop music" or similar. I even defended Adele several times, when a pop & rap fan wrote about her "Ugly, fat, can't sing" - I'm not her fan but she can sing and I appreciate talented people from all genres. - Metal_Treasure

No one means you specifically. I apologize if I didn't title or describe this specific enough - ProPanda

One thing that's always gotten on my nerves is when metalheads bash pop and rap music for some of the stupidest reasons. - Mcgillacuddy

I kinda like metal, and I am not a fan of pop, but I used to like pop. But to be honest, I do not think pop and metal bashing lists should be made.

2 They can't accept good pop music

I defended several times Adele, Whitney Houston, Adam Lambert and Jackie Evancho when pop & rap fans attacked them. I did it because I appreciate their singing talent (I'm not a typical fan of theirs, it's different). And I even defended somebody without a big talent in a context that wasn't music-related: I said Justin Bieber is overhated and it's immature to think he is the most evil person in history - more evil than Hitler, Stalin, etc. I'm not his fan but I try to be unbiased and reasonable. - Metal_Treasure

I've read comments from Metalheads who like Jackie Evancho. Some are now even diehard fans. Same goes for Rock fans. She's that good.

This list is just basically saying "all metal fans hate popular music and trash - talk every other genre because metal has instruments", an incredibly stupid stereotype. - Swellow

There is no "good" pop music! There is no "bad" pop music either! It's all about preference. Of course it's amazing though, because one random guy likes it so therefore it is the only good music on earth regardless of others' opinions. Well using this bs logic, some people can't accept "GOOD" metal music. Incredibly biased.

3 They don't ever really use reasoning

Pop artists just do things for popularity and the fans only like what's popular and trendy and they rely on their looks to become popular and have no talent and don't even try to make good music. When a retard wrote a song about a fox, he didn't even care if people liked the song or not and just did it to become popular.

This is ridiculous. This entire list is disrespectful to the metal culture. In every single genre, there will be some fan who's incredibly stubborn and never uses reasoning. There is NO better music. It all depends on opinion. It's true that instruments don't make a song automatically good, but it's perfectly okay to prefer music for reasons like that. Just because ProPanda met one stubborn metalhead doesn't make all metalheads high and mighty idiots.

Quite sure they do use reasoning their not that biased.

Some pop artists have talent, however, some of them are famous for no good reason like Jacob Sartorious. I do not like pop nowadays because to me it is not appealing. I also do not like it when pop artists cannot sing live.

4 They say false things

Pop actually requires some talent and producing, metal requires instruments to play, which is talent as well. But I do not like it when some pop artists only are famous for their looks, yet they do not have vocals, not all pop artists are like that though. It is also not appealing to me anymore, we are all different. Most pop songs are about sex, but not all pop songs are about sex.

Um what is it that metalheads say that's false exactly?

It's been only 2 days. and the list is already on the hottest list page. I can see that, the arguments will increase - zxm

"Like what? " Like when they insist metal is music.

5 They are ignorant

How is liking Metal music ignorant exactly?

Liking metal music isn't ignorant. However, using bad reasoning to bash on other music genres is. - SelfDestruct

Not all are ignorant, it's just some are.

6 They criticize other metalheads for certain types of Metal they listen to

Personally, I hate nu metal and metalcore for example. I won't deny that. But it's still metal and different people like different things and I respect that. The metalheads who do criticize other metal are pretty stubborn.

Some do, others don't as for me I say whatever rocks your boat.

Not really. I like A7X. And once I asked MT why they aren't a metal band? he described it to me. And said something like that "Just because they aren't metal doesn't mean they are not good". I don't like black metal. But I've never bashed someone for loving it. - zxm

@NikBrusk - you can listen to whatever you like! - Metal_Treasure

7 They troll the internet

This is valid how?

@Bored Jeffery obviously that was a troll list because no music genre more talented than another. Get your head out of the clouds and stop with the inaccurate comparison.

Look at these list and you will see
1)Top 10 reasons why pop music is awful
2)Top 10 reasons why rock music is better than pop
3)Top Ten reasons why people buy terrible rap/pop music
4)Top Ten music genres that have more talent than pop
5)Top Ten reasons boys hate pop music
6) Top Ten worst things about Pop music
7) Top Ten Reasons metal is better than modern pop
8) Top Ten Reasons Pop Fans are worse than Metal Fans
The list goes on.

Eh Top 10 Music Genres that have more Talent than Pop is one of my lists. Honestly I made that list to point out Pop isn't really all that talented. It's not a troll list whatsoever.

8 They are hypocrites

Like this list isn't hypocritical?

Yo visitor, how am I a hypocrite, please tell me, I always need ways to improve - ProPanda

DonaldThe Brony Trump, I don't ask metal fans to respect pop fans. If the pop fan is a horrible person, they lose my respect (which, trust me, is hard). I just want them to respect the opinion trhat people can like pop music too. I respect metal fans, as I am one too (I know, I can like both genres, isn't it shocking! ) - ProPanda

AND PROPANDA ISN'T?

9 They call pop fans immature for their own opinions

Enough of the nonsense that "most" metalheads do these things. How many have you met? 2? Just because you met one horrible person that happens to like metal, doesn't make metalheads all evil people. This is very similar to racism, for example. Just because some terrorists attack in the name of Islam, of course, ALL muslims are evil! So one metalhead hurts someone's feelings, of course, ALL metalheads are stubborn brutes!

We have seen several comments similar to this reason from several people. - SelfDestruct

I don't call some Pop fans immature for their opinions I call some Pop Fans immature based on their constant lashing out when you criticize a overrated pop artist.

I admit I used to like pop, even last year. But this year is the year I do not like pop anymore. However, calling all pop fans immature is biased. Not all pop fans are immature.

Well, most metalheads do do this, and most of them are immature, so what's your point - ProPanda

10 They are immature

This is perhaps the most relevant complaint on this list. They tend to be mired in obsessive, worshipful minutiae, such as actually measuring the length of "screams," overemphasizing speed and "complexity" as somehow related to musicality or instrumental prowess; waxing authoritative on what is "difficult" to play, when they've never even blown a kazoo; endless, unsolicited, irrelevant tutorials on trivia regarding metal "musicians," their kids, their pets, their ignorant politics, their "socially conscious causes"...all in attempt to convince someone (likely themselves) that their "genre" is not only "classical," but somehow superior. It's all a crushing bore.

Not all Metalheads are immature, honestly Pop fan are rarely mature. Especially if you bash Taylor Swift they'll go nuts. Honestly Pop fans can be even more immature then Metalheads.

Every music fanbase has immature fans not just metal music ALL music does.

Of course, some are. But then there are the Bieber fans who claim he's the best artist of all time because he looks pretty. I don't even have anything against Bieber, I don't care about him, but there are fans of every single genre that are full of crap.

Or that they genuinely believe he is the greatest artist ever because they think he makes better music that everyone else? - SwagFlicks
