Loyal obsessors over the music genre of metal and it's several subgenres. They are often elitist assholes who hate any band that has more than 5 fans. Metalheads may also try to be noncomformists but usually do not succeed due to the fact that they end up blending in with all the other retarded metalheads in their cult. Metalheads enjoy cheesy corpse paint, butt rock, and sometimes, satan. They also enjoy pissing people off and saying "SLAYER!" at completely random and innoportune times because they think they are cool. They find all music besides metal inferior, and if you insult one of the bands they like, they will launch a personal attack at you. Essentially, metalheads think they are better than everyone else because their music has technical guitars, shitty vocals, double bass drumming, violence, satan, and anarchist themes. And black metal fans like to kill small animals.

Metalheads like to grow their hair out to feminine lengths and never wash it. They wear large clothing and graphic, black band tees. They never smile in pictures and headbang when they listen to music with headphones. For entertainment, they like to poke people in the emotional spots that hurt the most to feel satisfied about their lack of achievement in their metal obsessed lives. They often play weirdly shaped, ugly, angular black guitars with almost non-existant necks (see: BC Rich) through crappy solid state modeling amps like Line 6's. They also think that high output pickups are the only pickups that sound good. They shun larger quality guitar companies like Gibson and buy Schecters because they think Korean assembly line guitars somehow top American hand made models, for a lower price of course. When they encounter other guitar players who do not shred, they immediately decide that these players suck, even though their personal attempts at shredding sound like pure shit. Metalheads play guitar with distateful amounts of gain and too much treble.
1. Guy: "I don't really like Slayer."
Metalhead: "FUCK YOU! YOU IDIOTIC PIECE OF SHIT, YOU HAVE NO TASTE IN MUSIC!!! SLAYERRRRRRR!"

2. Guy: "I like Children of Bodom."
Black Metal Fan: "You're retarded, that band SUCKS. THEY'RE SO MAINSTREAM!!!! How could you like a band whose records don't sound like they were recorded on a four-track!?!?"

3. Guy: "I like *insert mainstream rock band here*."
Metalhead: "They SUCK. They have too many fans! And they play powerchords!!11! OMG EW POWERCHORDS."

(Note: Even most metal bands use powerchords in their music. Sorry, you superior metalheads.)

4. Guy: "I'm feeling depressed."
Metalhead: "Go slit your wrists and die, you fucking pussy."

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.
Metal head1 : YOUR SO NOT METAL YOU LISTEN TO SLIPKNOT FAG!
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?

a metal head is defined by what they choose to define themselves as the majority of us think along the same lines which consist of the following but are not limited to: hate for the establishment, love of the musical genre, a rebellious spirit, an urge to break the bonds of anything that is or can control us unless we so allow it to (example; friends, family, significant other, dog). we arent all violent crazies but some of us happen to be and thats the individuals path that they choose its not up to anyone else but them and you know what? fuck you people who try to tell us what to do and fuck you posers who think just cause you look one way it makes you a metalhead. you arent a metal head if you do it to be cool. we dont want to be cool! thats those preps thing we want to be free! FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION! FREEDOM OF CHOICE! FREEDOM OF EVERYTHING! WE JUST WANT TO BE FREE OF YOUR SOCIETY!! ALL YOU PEOPLE TELL US WE CANT WORK SOMEWHERE JUST BECAUSE YOU DONT LIKE TATTOOS OR LABEL US AS VIOLENT RADICALS ARE RETARDS! RAPPERS ARE VIOLENT RADICALS! METAL HEADS ARE WHATEVER WE WANNA BE!

non ignorant in general. people that think about things. some people go extreme and some people dont. some metal heads like to hang out with non-metal heads. it depends. some are girls some are guys some are just awesome some are mean.
its about the music.
they tend to care less about what people think of them. they like to listen to their music loud. most of them like long hair not all.they tend to be passionate about subjects and are open to knew ideas. some go extreme w/tats or piercings(lip piercings) and will basically shun society, but others kinda fake it so that they can get ppl to like metal also. the best metal head is someone that can be nice and chill with people and not really care and get others turned on to metal because some of the unfortunate havent been exposed to it.
the sexuality of metal heads, well i havent really looked into it, i think most are straight, some girls are more sexual because of hormones but idk, the really dont wanna be whores though. lol.
metalhead:i love death metal, some black metal and goth rock. not really into mainstream but i wont critcize ppl for liking it everyone has their days.
i seem nice but sometimes i just get frustrated with the ignorant, but i try to accept that opinions are always changing and it doesn't just mean that dopeople are plain ignorant.
