A metal head is generally someone who enjoys metal. Trying to identify a metal head can be an easy task or a hard one. The life style the genre usually portrays is one of not caring and rebelling. Basically, do your own thing and fuck everyone else. This ties in with the whole "difficult" to identify because what you find as something unique, someone else may not. A metal head is stereotyped as a long haired, jean wearing fighter. While this may be true to some, it's not always the case (Except for the fighting aspect or at least the ability to harness an excess amount of rage and use it towards violenct.) Like the many different sub genres, I believe there are different types of metal heads.

The Physical Metal Head:

The easiest of the three to identy. Usually falls in with the "Long hair and denim jeans." stereotype. Exactly what the title states, their interest in the genre is shown physically. Whether it be through tattoos littered around there body, to hair grown down to their waist. More likely to attend concerts.

The Mental Metal Head:

This is the metal head you most likely will not be able to pick out of a crowd. Not ashamed to like the genre, instead he/she prefers the quieter approach to his undying love for it. This is most likely the quiet person with a few friends, usually also under the mental type. The Mental will more than likely commit a larger scale act of violence than a Physical simply because his rage is always bottled up until it can't be bottled up any longer. Usually hates people. Least likely to attend the concerts, but know more about the band then most.

The Mixed Metal Head:

Read the title. Mix random qualities from each of the above types and you've got yourself a molotov cocktail of ass kicking. Most people will probably find themselves associating with this title, simply because of the diversity of the genre and its fans.

There is nothing better or worse between the 3 types shown here, because in the end all 3 enjoy Metal and know that if you're a true Metal Head: No one gives a fuck about what type they are.
You probably could already tell, but I'm a metal head.

Metal head - Group of musical listeners that are often described as drunkards, partiers, and fighters, but this is a bit of a stereotype. Metal heads often listen to classic rock along with blues rock, classical, and opera based music, since those 2 genres are the root of what rock music could be considered today and the dawn of all music. Metal heads tend to have a powerful dislike towards the close-minded and mainstream. The majority tend to be very liberal and anti-conservative, but not all of course. Metal lyrics are often quite political and have more meaning than what people say. Metal music is very often stereotyped as “ satanic devil related material” . This is the worst stereotype of them all and the reason many don’t give metal a chance. Metal lyrics also deal with independence, pride, and free will. The metal genre has more sub-genres that any other musical genre existing today. These genres are often known as classic metal, death metal, black metal, grind core, thrash metal, symphonic metal, opera metal, folk metal, Viking metal, industrial metal, progressive metal, power metal, etc etc. All are tied together in the same branch and all kick ass if I do say so myself. Way back when there was a rivalry between punks, metal heads, and skinheads. This rivalry has long since dwindled out and people have matured today ( for the most part ) . There is no particular attire, metal heads tend to dress however they damn well please and this is great. But many people believe the attire to be faded blue jeans with black band tee-shirts. Long and/or wavy type hair style usually passing the eyes. Metal heads don’t give a shit about what’s trendy or what other people wear and allow people to dress and express themselves as they please without bitching about it like many “ new generation punk rockers” do today.
I have blabed on long enough on what I believe is the deffiniton of “ metal head” .

Old-school punk kicks ass, but what’s all this emo/screamo/pop-punk shit. * Sigh * Kids these days.

a dedicated listener to any kind of metal music. is thouht to be angry and violent and evil, but is less likely to kill than a rapper. DOES NOT require the hair or gear, but must respect the genre for its music and not its image.
metalhead: james, the 40-year-old who lives and breathes music, but has a loving family, kids and is no longer an alcoholic.


retard trying to capitalise on the image: fred, the 24-year-old wannabee metalhead who thinks korn are heavy, and believes that rap has a place in metal.

All these definitions are bullshit. Metalheads do NOT follow a specific look or all listen to the same bands. What's considered "metal" is so diverse and open ended that there are tons of different types of metal heads. You've got your mainstream nu-metal/metalcore, thrash, death, black, power, grind, all of that kind of stuff, and everybody enjoys different kinds of metal outside of the mainstream metalheads and perceptions of them. You don't have to exclusively listen to Slayer, Metallica, or Cannibal Corpse. Hell, you don't even have to like any of the "classic" bands. You don't need to be a long haired, dim-witted delinquent either. Or drink/do drugs. You can dress however you want; you wouldn't be able to tell some metalheads apart from people who despise metal because they look the same. As long as you like some form of the metal spectrum, it's all good.
listen to whatever you like and don't be bound to to supposed "mandatory" metalhead bands. Explore as much metal as possible.

A very small ammount of people fit into this category. Your average highschool would have four or less of them at most, seeing as most people who listen to "metal" actually listen to Alt. Rock/Nu metal. Metalheads are usually spotted by their looks. Usually denim jeans (Blue or black), band shirts, long hair/shaved hair, etc. The metalheads truely are the stupidest group of people to pick a fight with, we may be the quiet type, but metalheads could easilly wipe out multiple kids, and have a short temper that goes along with that. The metal culture however has dropped quite a bit, seeing as how the "hip" thing is to listen to rap or numetal.
Real metal bands: Iced Earth, Judas Priest, Amon Amarth, Bathory, Morbid Angel, Manegarm, Hammerfall, Blind Guardian, Burzum, Borknagar, Emperor, Immortal, Einherjer, Finntroll, etc

NOT metal bands: Korn, Slipknot, Mudvayne, Godsmack, Limp Bizkit, etc
