I don't have any tolerance for people seriously making fun of me
NONE
but at 6'6 and 230 pounds, it doesn't happen often

the worst I get is when people consider my taste in music to be stupid and bad.
That's just pure ignorance, and it usually comes from people that listen to top 40 stuff like Hannah Montana.
I actually feel bad that they are so closed minded when it comes to music. While they stick to what is popular I can enjoy some Evile, some SRV, and even some Bach.

The metal genre is really interesting in that it has a large following of die hard fans, but is likely the most hated genre in the world. It's not hated because of the music, it's hated because the media and society drills it into people's heads that metal is bad, it's full of drug addicts and violent people. All fans of metal are delinquents and criminals...blah blah blah

tell me, when you ask someone what kind of music they like, how often do you hear: "Anything but metal"?

i agree with alot of this, except for the bottem statement, i hear anything but rap, or anything but contry alot more, since the whole emo/screamo scene started going more mainstream i see alot of people listening to "metal" Songs where there is the occasional scream people have started considering metal so i know lots of people who listen to Alexisonfire and call it metal but as soon as i put on some suffocation they look like they want to puke. more examples of "metal" would be

Linken park(rap metal.. went mainstream became crapmetal)
AfI-started screaming, ruined it by going emo, their first albums were awsome
Alexisonfire-they just got popular i have no beef
Atreyu-
A7X-

im not good at knowing these bands but the rock scene started going heavier and its making "metal" more listen to able, but when u really like the Br()()tol stuff and real metal like oldschool stuff you realise metal is a very generalized term now sad.gif

Im all for a brotherhood of metal biggrin.gif a Secret Society of metalheads, we all need the same pendant or something, something that every metalhead carries to show that they are part of the society!

Um doesn't it seem a bit odd that considering people are called satanists for liking metal we'd have a pendant like that...

Haha, just a form of intimidation mate smile.gif. Half the people in Black Metal uses it, and there not technically Satanist in both forms of the matter.

Yeah but it doesn't make much sense if you get tired of being called a satanist but wear a satanist pendant to show your a member of a society.

Well, this is a universal thought.

Where you attracted to some sort of evil before you started listening to metal? Metal, no matter what genre it is, has an evil aura in it. Seriously, if any cannot take criticism from one of the most looked down genre in the history of music, then why even bother to listen to metal. Pentagram could relate to anything in Metal in general. Its not just satanism, or any of that stuff. Its a way for everyone to tell that you are part of this culture and being proud of it. I'm not a Satanist, but I see a Pentagram as being that pendant that tells everyone that I am a Metalhead.

well, metal is only thought of as evil because people labeled it as so when it first started. But metal bands were attracted to metal not for the evil but for the rebellion...and rebellion is not evil...just take a look at starwars and such. METAL IS NOT EVIL UNLESS IF U MAKE IT SO!

Oh yea Black Sabbath wasn't evil in a way.

Iron Maiden?
Grim Reaper?
Venom?
Bathory?
Mercyful Fate?

Seriously, those bands where the first to sing about Evilness in Metal. Sure, it could also be rebellion, but really... its not evil?

im not saying they dont n have evil lyrics and such but thats because they chose to be evil. Metal doesnt have to be about evil stuff, its just a stereotype. cool.gif

While we're deciding which pick we should use we should think about what else we would need for this group.
