The best kind of music ever made. Created as a branch of rock, jazz and blues.

People stereotype it to death, saying it's nothing but loud guitars and screaming. Most of it is actually composed of complex riffs, excellent solo's, and the best singing in the music business. Sure, there are a few black sheep's in the genre but when you ignore that stuff, you will see that it is awesome.

Listened to by metalheads, who are also stereotyped. Close-minded people think that metalheads are nothing but loud and obnoxious rejects. This is usually untrue, a vast majority of metalheads are deep thinkers and individuals who don't just follow the crowd.
Some examples of good metal bands are
Metallica
Iron Maiden
Slayer
Gojira
Lamb of God
Avenged Sevenfold (before their self-titled album)
COG
Black Sabbath
Led Zeppelin
System of a Down (although their genre can be disputed)
Megadeth
Disturbed

Examples of metal stereotyping
Dumbass: Eww, u lizen 2 metallica? dats all just screamin. u should lizen 2 50 cent or fall out boi!
Metalhead: Fuck you, I won't like something just because it's popular. Metal has deep lyrics and talented musicians.
Dumbass: nu! its just screamin! the only good metal is avril lavigne!
Metalhead: Fuck you, she's a poser? And have you ever heard Metallica?
Dumbass: yah...
Metalhead: What song?
Dumbass: Uh *runs*
Metalhead: Yeah, that's right, go conform with the crowd! *Walks off with awesome friends who are also Metalheads*

TRUE Metal is the most under appreciated style of music today. There are many good, TRUE, metal bands that exist. However, shit like Slipknot, Korn, System of a Down, and (recent) Cradle of Filth have given this genre a bad name in the mainstream. Thus, all the good bands were forced to remain obscure. This is one thing that seperates the TRUE metalheads, from the posers. The posers are the stupid kids who claim to be metalheads, yet listen to nothing but slipknot while claiming to be "Hardcore". The TRUE metal fans are the ones who appreciate bands that are not well known to the media whores that MTV controls. TRUE metal fans and TRUE metal bands are the 2 last remaining hopes of the genre.
Poser "Hey, man slipknot is the most fuckin' Brutal metal ever!"

Metal can only be described as the best genre ofmusic to ever hit the earth. Metal derived from the hard rock popular in the late 60s such as Led Zepplin and turned into Black Sabbath and Alice Cooper in the 70s. Continually accused of being Satanist and listening to Metal or wearing band T-shirts made people targets for police. More bands followed like Iron Maiden in the ealy 80s. Then Speed and Death metal came along when Metallica, Slayer and Megadeath showed up. In the mid 80s Gwar came out and took the stage show to the max with fake decapitations and blood spewing everywhere. In the early 90s (93-94) Melodic Death Metal bands came out of Scandanavia like In Flames and Children of Bodom. Then came along Nu Metal a.k.a Mallcore. Nu metal includes Slipknot, Korn Manson. System of a Down is slightly Nu Metal but more harcore punk-metal. Progreessive metal bands like Tool don't have the same style as other forms of metal but can still retain the heaviness of metal.
Metal is awesome and emo sucks.
In Flames, Children of Bodom, Gwar, Tool and Metallica are awesome

A real man's music, popularized by bands such as Metallica, Black Sabbath and Megadeth, to be reintroduced into the 90's in the incarnation of the agressive but simplified nu-metal.
Metal is the best music out there, and there is no compromising this statement.

Music in its most perfect form. A metal song usually has fast and hard guitar riffs, Lightning speed drums, dark lyrics, and a kick ass guitar solo. Black Sabbath was the first real metal band, although some bands you wouldnt expect to be metal bands, such as AC/DC and Led Zeppelin have also been an influence. After Black Sabbath came Judas Priest, Accept, etc. After those came Motley Crue, Van Halen, Motorhead Ozzy Osbourne(solo artist), then came Metallica, Megadeth, Pantera, Slayer, and Anthrax, then came the worst time with bands such as Slipknot, Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park, and Nickelback. But there is some good nu metal bands out there such as Saliva, At the Gates, and KoRn. But overall, Metal has had a great history with some of the most talented bands ever.

Some of the best metal artists/musicians in my opinion are..
Randy Rhoads-Guitar/Quiet Riot/Ozzy Osbourne
Udo Dirkschnider-Vocalist/Accept
Ozzy Osbourne-Vocals/Black Sabbath/Solo
Cliff Burton-Bass/Metallica
Eddie Van Halen-Guitar/Van Halen
Tony Iommi-Guitar/Black Sabbath
Jimmy Page-Guitar/Led Zeppelin
Kerry King-Guitar/Slayer
Vinnie Paul-Drums/Pantera
Wolf Hoffman-Guitar/Accept
Zakk Wylde-Guitar/Black Label Society/Ozzy
Dee Snider-Vocals/Twisted Sister
Dimebag Darell-Guitar/Pantera
Slash-Guitar/Guns N Roses
Glenn Tipton-Guitar/Judas Priest
KK Downing-Guitar/Judas Priest

..And many others
Metal is indescribable
