One of the Greatest forms of Rock Music, and has many subgenres, most are respectable, but some flat out suck. Traditional Heavy metal (Judas Priest, Mötorhead, Iron Maiden, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath) is by far the most superior of all the metal styles. It encompasses pretty much everything, the best riffs, best vocals, and best subjects, Fantasy Tales, Rock N' Roll, and Girls, (Who doesn't like Girls!). Trad Heavy Metal, usually goes for an exciting, or feel-good style of song, which, coupled with its heavy distortion and anthemic choruses made it one of the best and most influential subgenres of Rock. While Trad Heavy Metal was by far the best, In a close second was 80's metal (both glam and thrash). Trad Metal had a sort of feel of both darkness (Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath) and fun (Deep Purple, Judas Priest). In the 80's metal began to divide. Thrash took the darker side of metal added the speed of hard core punk and combined, and the result was Thrash Metal. Metallica, Megadeth, and Anthrax, did this the best. Slayer on the other hand were Nazi, white supremacist assholes, who were more death metal, and jerks overall. Thrash was great (discounting Slayer), but Hair Metal was of equal merit. It took the fun side of Metal and made it… more fun. Glam, as it was called was heavy, but not like thrash, it heavy in a more anthemic way, Mötley Crüe, did this the best. Equally as good, if not more accesible. The 70's and 80's were the golden age of metal, the 90's things started to suck. With Exceptions of Pantera and Faith No More, the 90's was the era of grunge (which sukced) and Sucky Metal. First of all Nü metal ruined metal completely. Korn sucked big dick. They were terrible with their lameass antics and sucky songs. Limp Bizkit, equally as sucky so lameass. Rage Against the Machine was real good though. Now, we come to the most sucky sucky sucky sukcy sucky sucky sucky scucky sucky SUCKY metal band of all time. Slipknot. They should go die. Honestly, the metal world would be a lot better. First of all, Their guitars are so downtuned that it doesn't matter what note they hit. The Vocals are sucky, Corey Taylor ruined metal, along with the rest of his suckyass band. Their just the same sort of phrases shouted over and over again (Fuck You, Go Die etc.). Their is no melody, the solos suck, and their is pretty much no talent. Slipknot should die. Anyway so from now one we can only leave our trust in bands such as Wolfmother, Priestess, and The Darkness to champion Metal. Nü metal sucks, Trad Metal will always kick their lamass asses out hte door.
Korn, Limp Bizkit, slipknot (should die) = Sucky, embarassment to metal

Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath = Right On they rule, and and so much more talented then any stupid Nü metal suckyass band

Slayer = Nazi Assholes

Overall Heavy Metal will always win, and Nü metal… SUCKS

an overrated type of music whos fans think that the technicality of the music is all that matters and automatically makes the music better than some less technical music
:
these metalheads also badmouth power chords but don't realise that metal wouldn't even exist if it weren't for power chords
:
metalhead: "Nirvana and Green Day and Offspring suck because they only use power chords and anybody can do that"
:
me: "Yeah erm , you do realise that the first metal band Black Sabbath was all power chords , right?
I suppose then that Korn and Slipknot are better than Black Sabbath then,huh? And I suppose a retarded monkey on crack could have written Zep's A Whole Lotta Love too, right?"
:
punk walks away...
heavy metal fans are sometimes funny with how pigheaded they can be

Heavy Metal Music is a bunch of retards attempting to make noise and call it music. They think that screaming into a microphone and playing guitars and drums at the same time passes off as music, obviously they are wrong.

Listeners of heavy metal are usually loners who stick to their own bunch of people and hate everything other people like. People who listen to Heavy Metal are extremely critical and like to criticize everything because they do not like it.

Furthermore, people who listen to Heavy Metal music hate mainstream music because unfortunately their music can't make it to mainstream as it is not music but just random, retarded sounds and screams which have no meaning.

Most Heavy Metal is based on Satan and self harm. They also like to sing about the government and how it is corrupt, but the bands who sing about this do not realise that it is the same government that made them rich.

Heavy Metal is pure evil and should not be regarded as music.

Music is a sound perceived as pleasingly harmonious, Heavy Metal however, is not pleasing nor harmonious, it is the complete opposite.

A stiff style of music with no "feel" to it.
Heavy Metal is just another crappy sub-genre which idiots cling to in an attempt to belong to some social group or clique.It's no different than the so-called "punk lifestyle" or people trying to be "indie" or goth or emo or whatever.They all claim to be non-conformists and then conform to some stupid little social group or clique or whatever.Fuckin posers.Music is music and you should listen to whatever music that's good regardless of how it's labeled.
-
Conforming to some little social group or clique is so stupid because it turns into millions and millions of people thinking that they are "non-conformist" when in reality they are just conformists.Quit trying so hard ya posers,lmao!
