METAL does NOT = 'GOTH'
Gothic music is Gothic metal & Black metal. Cradle of Filth is Black metal. They are 'goth'.
A metal head cannot be classified. Metal defeats all racial and economic boundaries in almost everywhere in the world.
Example.. I used to sit at a table in highschool with the 'rich jocks' at the time and we'd listen to Pantera together.
Were they Goth? No.. did'nt they have piercings or wear baggy ass pants you ask? No. Piercings and baggy pants dont qualify you for 'Goth' either, you have to LIVE 'Goth'.
I guess what I'm trying to say is, you don't HAVE to look or dress any way to like metal, or be a metal head. People that dress a certain way, do, because they want to.
Metal is a movement and thus is very dynamic.
All these stereotypes hurt the Metal scene by trying to single us out and make us the minority. People however are going to have to come to terms with the fact that everybody has a will of their own. The people doing the labeling are the ones that perpetuate the stereotypes. Why should people that know nothing of our culture be allowed to generalize us so? You may be sick of us, but we've BEEN sick of you, society and the bullshit games it plays. If you think we look pissed all the time, you just may be on to something there..
Metal = Fullblown Chaos, A Perfect Murder, Chimaira, Old Sepultura.
Black Metal/Goth Metal = Dimmu Borgir, Cradle of Filth, Hammerfall.
Fallout Boy Kid: Dude you metal heads listen to your shitty noise way too loud!
Metal Head: So what, thats how we do it! Atleast I'm not blasting Fallout Fags. Why don't you go put on some womens clothing and cry about how your middleclass suburban life is so terrible.
Old-school punk kicks ass, but what’s all this emo/screamo/pop-punk shit. * Sigh * Kids these days.
retard trying to capitalise on the image: fred, the 24-year-old wannabee metalhead who thinks korn are heavy, and believes that rap has a place in metal.
NOT metal bands: Korn, Slipknot, Mudvayne, Godsmack, Limp Bizkit, etc
