As being labeled as metal head recently i figured i'd add another definition to this place.
We (metal heads) genreally just dress in clothes from regular stores like kohls, i myself usually just wear lee's jeans and a shirt. knowing that me and my friends are all the same there is no size chart, i myself am pretty small i have a huge friend who is also a metal head. We're quiet but hate pretty much everyone who says things to us. While i have nothing against all people from these stereotypes there are a few dumb enough to fuck with us, skaters and jocks usually. me and my personal group hate emo guys don't mind emo girls or any goths. not all of us rebel i go to school cut classes rarely. i'm an alright student b's usually. we're (my group of friends) are small (about 5 of us) and hate pretty much everything. Honestly it doesn't matter what metal you listen to it's just the effect. i personally do listen to slipknot and korn, even some disturbed.. also amon amarth and dragonforce things from my heritage (hate to say it but most of us are "tribal" decent german, norweigan, czech). if you sit here and bitch about how i'm not a metal head, well go for it. in reality if you judge us by our music and say we're fakes...well we'll just beat you to death, why? because as other people have said the lyrics go in one ear and out the other it's the hate that we care about. I am a "mixed" my hair is to shoulders i am clean shaven. some of us like animals but like i said personal view, we aren't into the cute little fuzzy animals, i have 2 cats both of which i rescued from the wild (i prefer animals to people) whom i have trained to kill other small animals. while some of us do infact wear spikes i usual am seen wearing a ring my girlfriend gave me a leather coat and jeans and a t-shirt (as previously stated). we are tough we are mostly good fighters because we go insane and just don't think in fights making us more efficent to cause damage. i am usually slow to anger but my wrath is incredible. genreally we do protect our on kind but i have been known to help out "nerds" or "goths" sometimes it's because i don't mind you others it's because i need a good fight. and for those of you who have asked me where i learned to fight like that, we don't get taught by anyone we just brawl it till we win and a lil exp isn't bad either. i'm not gonna tell you if your metal or not because it's just up to you. oh and the person who said we carry around knives, we do usually a pocket or sailor knife when i have to go places like school, but in public i carry around a hunting knife.
ME: bro just shut the fuck up it's my hate an besides only one being a fag is the one trying to label gtfo

skater kid1: hehe look at him he's so gay leather coat i bet we can take him
smart skater kid: bro it's not worth getting your ass beat just leave them alone.

me: I really hate it when those idiots on urban dictionary make us seem like douche bags
friend: agreed, half of them talk big but they are probably like the kids that just tried to mug us
me: haha that was fun wasn't it?

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
