A follower of true metal music. A person who usually still listens to original metal bands (Judas Preist, Iron Maiden, Slayer, Metallica, Pantera, Motley Crue, etc.). Almost always identified by long hair, sleeveless denim jacket (airbrush painting on back), chain wallet, studded bracelet, black tee, faded jeans (ripped knees, or cut-off shorts), black shoes: old high tops, boots, or worn out tennis shoes. Metalheads tend to be very aggressive due to the intense, adrenaline-surging music. They are very free willed, and don't care how they look. Tend to drink often, and can be found air guitaring in public, with freinds, or at parties. They know true metal, and don't argue it. They are also the last people you'd want to fight. Have great hatred for "emo kids" and wiggers. 95% can play an instrument, and is also very loud due to almost constant screaming. They will do as they please and let no one tell them otherwise, also most are fearless.
Wow, that metalhead took out two guys without spilling his beer. That is a true bad ass.
