People of any race or background, who likes metal in general, there are many types of metal so characterizing metal is what true metal heads won't do, unless faced with a someone saying miley cirus is metal, which she is definitely not. metalheads can or can not wear a jacket, army boots with a band logo. many metalheads choose to wear something else and that does not make them non-metalheads. metalheads usually but dont always wear some black. anyone who is dedicated to metal is a metalhead. metalheads in some-way can relate to the song that they like, so your type of metal is based on who you are, or they may just like the tune, or whatever(just as long as they are dedicated). metalheads are not druggies or drunk mossers. they are actually generally intelligent, even though some may not. they may drink or do drugs but that is on a personal base not a general base of metalheads.
An example of a metal head is someone who is dedicated enough to go to a concert if they can actually make the distance. so just because you live on a island in the middle of the ocean and cant make it to a concert it does not make you a non-metalhead

A metalhead is kind of self explanatory, it's a person who listens to a lot of metal. Metal heads can be classified for long hair, black clothing and band tees BUT, not all metal heads look like this. Metalheads tend to dress however they want. A lot people call them selves metal heads, because the only bands they listen to is Slipknot and Disturbed. This is personally an insult to true metal heads, because true metal isn't recognized, such as Ozzy Osbourne, or Amon Amarth.
Average teenage kid: Hey guys, I listen to Slipknot now... I'm a hardcore metal head.

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*

A metal Head is anyone who listens to, and loves metal music. Sub-genres are not a factor. Clothing is not a factor. Whether you hate everything is not a factor. Whether you just like the older metal bands, or the newer ones doesn't matter either. To be a fucking metal head, all you have to fucking do is love metal music. Thats fucking it.
Me: i fucking love metal!
Someone else: he's a metal head!
