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...
Fake metalhead: All that stuff is way too amazingly talented for me. I think I'm gonna go listen to Slipknot now.
guy with a brain:uh yeah they are dumbass.just cuz you dont like a band,that doesnt mean there fake metal
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!
