Top 10 Worst Things About Pop Elitists

Their far worse then metal elitists let's get started.

The Top Ten

1 They think they know enough about metal to judge it when they probably haven't listened to it all

This whole comment feud has to be the most pettiest thing I've ever seen going on here, and I'm not getting involved in this any further. - Swellow

The most popular metal song is probably Metallica's Enter Sandman, which maybe few pop fans have listened to. Most of those people haven't listened to anything else yet they think they can judge metal because they think it's gay because of screaming and it's unpopular.

I've listened to Drowning Pool before and then did not hear of another metal song until just recently - Neonco31

All of these are true but this is my number 1 - jrodz

2 They claim metalheads don't know anything about pop music

So this war between genres has really hit new heights huh? Can't we just accept other peoples opinion and shut up? - cjWriter1997

I like metal, it's just you shove Metallica and Megadeth down my throat so much (when half the time they really don't deserve it) that I'm allowed to judge you for how much metal you listen.

Also, NO metalhead elitist I've seen knows ANYTHING about pop or how it works. - WonkeyDude98

Because you're so painfully ignorant to everything but yourself that you won't listen to anything the opposing side has to say. Which is why this awful list exists. - WonkeyDude98

3 They bash metal music over stupid reasons

I never said I hated Nu Metal...even though I do.

You bash pop for ridiculous reasons, so even if I did say that, we're even. - WonkeyDude98

4 They claim that metalheads are hypocrites when they themselves are hypocrites

What have YOU done this whole list?

Point out things that YOU YOURSELF do. - WonkeyDude98

5 They get very argumentative if you disagree with them or if you criticize them

Well, if you had just moved on with your interests without bashing another, then I'm sure this war wouldn't have occurred. And this site is built on opinions moreover. So, respect them. - FieryKnightFloyd

WonkeyDude98 actually has a point - Neonco31

I only do so because the things you say are so farfetched and ridiculous that it's hard to believe a human being can think them.

Also, what it is metalheads and popheads do all the same? Argue. And more often than not, the judgy, death-threatening metalhead is the one who engages it. - WonkeyDude98

6 They claim metalheads disrespect opinions when they themselves disrespect opinions

I don't disrespect the fact that you like metal, I disrespect the fact that you won't even hold pop to a fair (or rational) standard, look deeper into pop, and -- guess what? -- disrespect opinions. - WonkeyDude98

7 They don't respect opinions

And metalheads do? - WonkeyDude98

Wonkeydude98 is the prime example

8 They use awful reasoning to defend pop and even worse reasoning to bash metal


That's their daily work... - Ananya

I swear if one more person claims I hate metal...I gave Saor an 11/10, guys.

Awful reasoning to defend pop? Last time I checked, I've never seen a metalhead talk about music theory, or lyrics, or instrumentation, in any detail. Instead, they just say "it's better than pop" to hold metal to a ludicrous high horse. - WonkeyDude98

9 They say metal is Satanic

This is barely even true to begin with. If you seriously think that all pop elitists think that metal is satanic, yet it's not even true to begin with, you probably have a hard time dealing with criticism. - SwagFlicks

I honestly haven't heard anyone say metal is satanic in YEARS - Mcgillacuddy

My stupid mom thinks that the music I listen to is Satanic when clearly you never listened to it before. All you ever listen to is rap music and don't you think that is satanic at all?

Black Metal is Satanic! - Neonco31

10 They think metalheads judge them for their opinions or music taste

Not all metalheads do that. In fact, most of thdm don't.

Because you do? - WonkeyDude98

The 2016 TTT Music Awards Post does have something to say with two metalhead elitists. - Neonco31

The Contenders

11 They make up false information about metalheads to make them look bad

I use actual evidence and things that have happened. How about follow your own Strawman fallacy? - WonkeyDude98

12 They claim metalheads hate pop when that's not the case

I've heard a lot of metalheads say pop has always been awful.

Even ignoring that, CHVRCHES, Marianas Trench, Steven Wilson, Frank Ocean, and 2016 Beyoncé are modern pop, and last time I checked they're all awesome, - WonkeyDude98

13 They troll on the internet

Wonkey Dude98 always saying nonsense about metal music, I'm not a metal fan but I hate those who can't respect each other.

Like you're not.

Seriously all this elitism is almost enough to make me retire again. - WonkeyDude98

I'M always saying nonsense about metal music?

So I should take back giving Metallica's Ride The Lightning and Maudlin of the Well's Bath 9/10s, Saor's Guardians an 11/10, and Ulver's Bergtatt a 10/10? If you wish.

I'm just trying to get respect, because this site hasn't done that even before I made that list. - WonkeyDude98

14 They don't know rhythmic beats of music

This item is cracking me up for some reason - ProPanda

Bet you don't know what a Picardy third is. - WonkeyDude98

15 They are immature

And metalheads aren't? - WonkeyDude98

@WonkeyDude98 Metalheads are actually mature.

16 They are naive sissies
17 They are blockheads

Lol.. Who even uses that term anymore? Blockhead... Lmao this list is so funny in my opinion, I don't know why.

Exactly my point. Even by the standards of elitism, you're pretty bottom-tier. - WonkeyDude98

18 They Are Stupid
19 They don't know about music

Or do I?

Dear lord, this is like the global military force going up against a supernatural turtle at this point. - WonkeyDude98

20 They wouldn't know good music if it bit them in the aft end

Wonkeydude98 aka the narcissistic Justin Bieber fanboy who thinks everything that comes out of his mouth is a fact

I like how you think liking pop translates to Justin Bieber. It shows how little you know about pop music. - DCfnaf

21 They enjoy fake music
22 They are childish
23 They listen To Justin Bieber
24 They are always fighting with metal fans
25 They always act like they are the boss
26 They defend auto-tune
27 They are cowards
28 They are inferior
29 They only will listen to pop

They hate, punk, metal, rap, industrial, classical. They even think classic rock is out dated and inferior. I've once had someone tell me to turn off my speaker (I was playing "paint it black" by The Rolling Stones) only to have them put on Katy Perry.
