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!"

Hands down one of the best genres of music. Negative stereotypes about metal come from metalheads, who always argue, that their music/band is better, than whatever you listen to, if it's not metal.
In Flames, Dark Tranquility, Metallica, AC/DC, and so on...

The best musical genre in the world. People think it's just a bunch of screaming and satanic lyrics, but they fail to see the true meaning behind metal. Not all of it is screaming, there is melodic metal too. And not all of it is Satanic either, there is Pagan, Viking, Folk, Death, Thrash, Glam, even Christian, and many other genres. Not just satanic metal. Also, some bands CALL themselves metal, when in fact they are just wannabe posers.
Metal: Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax, Cannibal Corpse, Lamb of God, Kataklysm, Dimmu Borgir, Cradle of Filth, Amon Amarth, Behemoth, Exodus.

Wannabe poser shit:
Korn, Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park, and Slipknot.

Stands for "Make 'Em Take A Loss", which is the philosophy that anything done can be done better by using all materials provided to you by a commercial enterprise.

Examples include using all towels in a hotel, even though you don't need them, taking both hot AND mild sauce when at Taco Bell, even if you have no intention of using them, using the automated handi-door activation so that you don't expend energy opening doors and, the best one, leaving your hotel lights and TV on at all times so that the room is ready to go when you come back.

If it doesn't cost you more, you should METAL to balance out the equation. It costs them a little bit more, and gives you a better deal than the next guy.
Remember to METAL the bar by taking 4 packs of matches, even though you don't smoke!
