This music is found in genres such as Glam Rock (Bon Jovi), Glam Metal (KISS, Twisted Sister), Nu metal (Slipknot, Korn), Deathcore (Bring Me The Horizon, As Blood Runs Black), some Metalcore (Attack Attack!, Iwrestledabearonce), Alternative metal (System of a Down, Papa Roach), some Hard Rock (people call AC/DC and Led Zeppelin metal).
Most mainstream metal sucks because of its very watered-down MTV style, which most metalheads dislike strongly.
Idiots, who have no clue what they're saying, call Led Zeppelin or AC/DC metal. This is not true at all. They both have told their fans that they play hard rock, not metal.
Bon Jovi is not metal and never will be. Their style is too love song oriented and they have appeared on shows like American Idol, which totally throws away metal completely no matter who is on that show.
Korn and Slipknot are not even heavy enough to be metal. Their lyrics, image, and singing is too mainstream to be metal. People call Slipknot death metal? Haha! This is a disgrace to true death metal, which was created by amazingly talented bands. That is just pure blasphemy.
Deathcore ruins death metal by invading it with talentless hardcore punk. Don't get any metalhead started on that...
Real metalhead: Go listen to real metal such as Death, Carcass or Nile.
Fake metalhead: All that stuff is way too amazingly talented for me. I think I'm gonna go listen to Slipknot now.
something idiot metalheads call metal bands that are new and because of the metal genre they supposedly are.(as they worship old thrash,black,and death metal bands).a.k.a they dont have the balls to say that this metal band sucks so they say that it's fake metal
metalhead:dude slipknot is fake metal cuz they wear masks
guy with a brain:uh yeah they are dumbass.just cuz you dont like a band,that doesnt mean there fake metal
Loud Rock Music that has nothing to do with Heavy Metal other than being loud!? People who think that Glam Bands like Quiet Riot, Motley Crue, Def Leppard, Poison, Ratt, Bon Jovi and Skid Row are (NOT) 'Metal' don't know what the hell Heavy Metal is! These bands are too sentimental and/or romantic and poppy to be 'Metal'! They are the opposite of what Heavy Metal is! Their image and style is too flashy and over-the-top! They wear more make-up than your girlfriend! People say they look like chicks, well yeah, they also look like clowns! Seriously, get a clue!
Manowar is NOT 'Metal'! Why? Because they are too cheesey and silly to be taken seriously! They've never been in any wars and they certainly aren't warriors, so their fake! Their lyrical themes are remeniscent of fairytales! And lastly, Motorhead is NOT 'Metal'! Why? Because Lemmy Kilmister disregards the term 'Heavy Metal'! And simply lables his style as Rock 'N Roll! And Motorhead's style and content leans closer to Punk Rock!
