1.) See the Periodic Table of the Elements. Most of the little squares on the left are metals or metalloids. Nonmetals (with the exception of hydrogen) are on the right fourth, next to the noble gasses.

2.) A genre of music that causes a great difference of opinion. Charachterized by loud cacaphonious guitar riffs and barely audible lyrics, metal fans are derogotoraly referred to as metal heads. But there is no problem in making fun of metal heads because that is what they are, see definition 1, their brains are made of Uranium for listening to that crap. All of you angsty metal kids should listen to some classic punk, or some ska and cut your hair. You will do the world a favor.
1.) I really like to play with Rutherfordium. It's a metal.

2.) "Yeah man, i so totally went to an augument of death salazar war blood shroomfest korncob concert the other night and headbanged all night long to their newest hit, "Kick me in the face and get a tatoo of a dragon on your penis" which has a 672196528 hour long guitar solo of three notes played in repetitive patterns, METAL RULES!" -Metal head

A type of music characterized by it's cacophonous wall of sound and accelerated tempo which is achieved through distorted electric guitars playing fast-paced riffs, with the driving drumbeat often utilizing hypersonic double bass rhythms and emphasizing the continuous pumping action, the bass guitar is often playing similar to the guitar, but more with the drums, so as to add to the overall heavyness and depth. It can manifest in many different forms and the spectrum of intensity is usually quite varied. From slow and heavy melodic grooves, to complex and precise blinding rhythms, odd time changes, and sheer brutality.. metal comes in many shapes and sizes. One common trait of metal is to have vocals dealing with dark subject matter, often sung with anger, aggression, and conviction in the form of screaming. Melodic smooth vocals are also accepted. Solos are an integral part of metal music, as the icing on the cake to complement the heavy intensity of the songs and add more depth and individuality. Real metal has a solo in every song, usually scales and arpeggios played with some changes often in 8th, 16th, or 32nd notes..if only a few quick licks. Metal is progressive and dynamic, and usually provokes feelings that are therapeutic to the listener. Metal is rock music that has evolved.

A misunderstood type of music that can not easily be appreciated if you haven't heard much of it. It may take a long time for you to warm up to it, but as soon as you do, there's no turning back. Contrary to belief, metalheads are not stupid or angsty - that's just throwing around labels.
1. Metal music is judged too easily.
2. People's minds need to be more open.

a great type of music which has been ruined by too many sub-genres and too many stupid people bitching & moaning & making vacuous statements about what "is or isn't" real metal. They hang around message boards and give each other blowjobs & snowballs.
Stupid Metal Bitch 1: "-insert band name- isn't metal! That's fucking stupid ass mallcore nu-metal. God, you fucking loser. I should kick your ass. If you want "real" metal listen to -insert band here"

LAWLLLL..you listen to pussy metal...fuck goth metal..dark metal..death metal..pop metal..nu-metal..industrial metal..german metal..hardcore metal..punk metal..mallcore metal..you pussy. fuck you. listen to real metal, bitch"
