But just because they don't know anything about real metal or punk rock, don't let that fool you, they're still hardcore as hell, they're just ignorant to boot. They tend to live in trailor parks or indian reservations and have mothers who are probably meth addicts or alcoholics.
They usually don't complete high-school and are charged with a variety of domestic violence crimes. They do plenty of drugs, and talk about it freely.
The reason why they dont know about the more obscure bands is because simply they haven't been exposed to any real 'scene' living in their rural community.
