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!"

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.

1. A heavier genre of music, usually containing lots of distortion, shredy riffs and solos, men with hair down to their knees, and sometimes a giraffe. More modern styles have incorporated breakdowns to give it a more brutal edge to the sound. These breakdown should not be confused with the Mariah Carry type of breakdown.

2. A type of elementary substance, many of which are characterized by opacity, ductility, conductivity, and a unique luster when freshly fractured. Can be found in the solid and liquid forms depending on its temperature.

Guy 1: "Dude! You going to the metal show tonight?"
Guy 2: "Yeah man!"

Person 1: "Dude! What's that can made of?"
Person 2: "Some kind of Metal, I assume."

A form of rock that is often misunderstood(kinda like rap) as only for angry, moody teenagers, when in reality it is a wide assortments of types from light to Brutal and any variable in between. Often with fast guitar parts and driving bass and drums. Doesn't have to have screaming.
