Metal's about rebellion. The rebellion is about freedom.
Metal is my religion. Get the fuck out of my way!

A genre of music, that's all. It's not a culture or anything it's just a type of music.

1. An element on the periodic table that is a good conductor of heat and electricity. Often have a metallic sheen to them.

2. A genre of music that grew out of rock. Its listeners, called metalheads, are often stereotyped incorrectly, as is the music itself. Metal is not a bunch of rich, angsty teens screaming about Satan, violence, and sex. That is called Metalcore or Nu-metal and is generally looked down upon. Metal is a genre based off of originality and technicality. It is extremely diverse ranging from bands such as Pain Of Salvation to Decapitated.
1. Gold, or Iron are commonly known examples of metal

2. Cynic, Atheist, Mors Principium Est, Ayreon, Dream Theater, Opeth, Death, Miseration, Decapitated, Unmoored, Strapping Young Lad, UneXpecT, Torchbearer, Symphony X, Shadow Gallery, Anata, Nevermore, Between The Buried and Me, Iron Maide, ect. ect.

A sub-genre of rock music. Notorious for being heavy (hence the name, heavy metal), dark, and often deep pitched. The bass and drums are often played in sync while the guitar plays the main rhythm with riffs, licks, and chords. Stereotypic metal is often associated with darkness, destruction, pain, and Satanism. Ladies and Gentlemen, this is the music mommy and daddy warned you not to listen to.
The father of metal, Ozzy Osbourne, bit the head off of a bat during the song "Bark At The Moon". THAT is metal.

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*
