Nu-metal is simply a genre of music and I want to make a point to all of you people who think it is stupid and automatically makes anyone who listens to it a poser or mallgoth who is just depressed because they have no friends or seeking attention and wants to rebel against their parents. You don't have to listen because I'm not going to shove it down your throats like you do to others.
Let's pretend okay:
I'm a prep. I listen to the Sex Pistols. Does that make me punk? NO!
Okay so now lets stop pretending. I listen to nu-metal and I have never claimed any label. And I DO like to shop at hot topic. Not because I am rebellious and attention seeking. I prefer to stay out of the limelight. I like the clothes, the style, the people, the atmosphere. Anybody who says that everybody there are all depressed attention seeking cutters with no sense of humor obviously has never been in Hot Topic. Just a few weeks ago I was in there and I met the greatest guy. He was so funny had a great sense of style (which was by the way not exactly typical of hot topic.) And he was not at all depressed.
I like the mall. I can get cheap cd's there, which is good cause I'm poor.
So listening to the sex pistols can't make a prep a punk. How does liking the things i do make me a poser? The answer is simple. I never claimed to be anything, therefore I am not posing as anything. I am not the one who calls myself punk or gothic. It's my peers. So basically I ambeing judged for what my friends think.
now I ask you is that what you think I am, a poser?
Isn't it sad that nowadays our character is judged by what music we like and the clothes we wear.
If you don't like what I like or what I wear say so. But don't judge me as a person because chances are I don't like what you like or wear either.
I don't listen to nu-metal in particular. I like all bands with guitars and talent.
If you consider yourself emo and listen to Dashboard Confessional, Fall Out Boy, All-American rejects, or Hawthorne Heights then your probably a scenesters for you follow a so-called trend or in this case scene.
Now here's something to chew on kiddies:
Much as I hate labels let's say I am a prep and I listen to the Sex Pistols. Does that make me punk? I think not.
Now let's say I am emo and happen to listen to one of the bands named above. Does that make me a poser?
Especially if I never claimed that the band was emo, I simply enjoy the music.
It's kind of sad that our characters should be judged by what kind of music we listen to. Maybe we should get to know people before we judge them.
Girl thinks of me and my friends as scenesters because we wear lots of black clothes, make up, and nail polish, and like metal, and punk rock.
Girl is stupid enough to voice her opinion.
I punch her in her face and tell her to learn a little bit more about me before she goes judging me because I SEEM to fit into a certain stereotype.
