Aside from being a music genre, "Metal" can be used as a metalhead's equivalent of "ballin'"

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

Metal is quite obviously enough either an element of the earth or a very wonderful genre originating from rock. Rock is also wonderful. "Metal Heads" are people who listen to Metal. These people are the best people the great Dieties unknown to us created. Those formentioned Dieties who reign above us love Metal Heads. In fact, they most likely despise anti-Metal-ers, that's what pop and most Emo is for. The great degredation set upon us by the whorey teens and tweens who think that Metal sucks and that faux music with a singer who may or may not be a good artist is a horrible thing. Do not judge someone by their taste in music, unless they adore whores, men and women alike, who sing to "bop bop bop", as mentioned by a previous definition. By saying that Metal sucks or that Metal Heads are unintelligent, you are most likely saying that you are either Old, a whore worshiping shit, very biased and ignorant to the "kick-ass-i-ness" of the Rock world, OR just need to stop sucking your boyfriend's dick long enough to listen to real music.
Poppy Bitch : Metal sucks, lYke, Oh, My God...I worship Paris Hilton...

A cool derivative word, mostly used by metalheads to describe a wide range of moments the involves metal or a cool vibe.
