Nu/Alt. Metal Bands: Limp Bizkit, Disturbed, Godsmack, Linkin Park
Hardcore metalhead: Umm... why don't you listen to some Megadeth or Behemoth?
Average teenage kid: I don't like all that growling and loud guitars.
Hardcore metalhead: *Punch*
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.
Lewis:- What's happening?!!! :O
Jamie:- ITS A MEGA METALHEAD MOSH OUT SESSION!!!!
*Both go completely nuts to any kind of metal (apart from emo,etc)*
Dude 2: Whatever he's listening to Arch Enemy right now and yesterday was jamming to Iron Maiden, he's a complete metal-head
Dude 1: You can't listen to classical music and heavy metal and say you're a metal head!
Metal-Head: Actually you can, where do you think music started, with the classics. *Sighs* Oh the ignorance.....
Metal head: *smacks face with palm in disgust*
