Anyone who lives and breathes the genre of metal. Metalheads also hate the mainstream shit and get pissed off when someone says their tatse of music comes from the radio and MTV. Open minded metalheads love everything from the legendary Black Sabbath to the wave of nu metal that errupted in the 90s. And don't stereotype bout a metalhead's appearance either; we arn't all long haired people that get drunk on a regular basis. And we aren't all goths either. The whole point of being a metalhead is to let the music become part of your soul and to realise that nothing else in the world matters. Proper metalheads should be open minded about every last bit of metal and at least give it a try.
Awesome bands: Iced Earth, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Slayer, Coal Chamber, Disturbed, System Of A Down and Static- X.

Oh and Korn isn't a bad band, but they're more rock than metal. This is why many metalheads don't like them probably.

Metalheads are people (both girls and guys)who enjoy and are particularly devoted to metal music. Metal music includes (limited list - theres LOTS more subgenres): death metal, black metal, heavy metal (for example 80s heavy metal), nu metal (often disregarded by old school/death metal lovers) symphonic/gothic metal etc.

Metal heads dont HAVE to dress in a particular way, however a STEREOTYPICAL male metalhead could be seen wearing long pants (ie army pants) in dark colours like grey, black, karki green etc, a band shirt often bought from a concert, and long hair - popular because of effect when headbanging. patches are also popular. Females dress is harder to stereotype - ranging from gothic tendancies to indie/emo (thrift store emo - not wannabe hate life emo).

some metal heads (particularly males) get very defensive when describing a metal head - often calling those not as devoted as them as posers (often assosiated with nu metal)
Metal Head Music:

Death Metal examples(including melodic etc): Amon Amarth, Chimera, In Flames, Nile, Immolation, Trivium

Thrash: Metallica, Slayer, Megadeath, Sepultra, Dark Angel

Black Metal: Venom, immortal, mayhem

Heavy Metal: Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Ozzy Osbourne/Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper

Nu Metal: System of a Down, Mudvayne, Fear Factory, Slipknot

Symphonic Metal: Nightwish, tristania, symphony X, stratovarious

A metalhead is someone with a "if you don't like me, FUCK YOU" attitude. Someone who lives eats and breathes metal, someone whos passion revolves around metal, in my oppinion, the true definition of a metalhead, is someone who respects themselves, and others who live amongst them. We as metalheas have no boundaries, and will not obey to your plain society, we are who we choose, and no one person or any creature can controll us or our oppinions we live as people of our own free will, and that will, is metal. May it live forever.
One day, my english teacher asked me," Why did you paint your nails black?"
I respnded with,"Because I'm a fucking metalhead and we will never die."

(later that day I got a detention...)

Entry no. 5 in this was good, but you missed out some MAJOR bands! Erm... Motorhead, Judas Priest, to name a couple! I was born of metalheads, and i can handle my drink. I keep up wiv the folks, and they're fuckin BIKERS!!! Unlike the townies who get pissed on half a bottle of alco-pop! Any true metalhead should drink beer, beer and more beer, have an inhuman love for motorbikes and worship Black Sabbath. And be half deaf from the volume 11 music...! Oh, and here's a tip, please please please don't wear a brand-spanking squeaky new leather jacket until its worn in a bit, it makes you look like an extra for grease. Cheers.
The metalhead got so into headbanging to motorhead, he didn't notice his beer had spilt all over his jacket which already had beer and cum stains all over it. Oh well, better cover it up with another patch i suppose...!
