People who like Metal. That's it. All the lifestyle nonsense is just that, nonsense.
Jim likes metal, he is therefore a metal head.

Kay, I'm sick of looking at the difinitions of how a metal head lives, that's like trying to describe how to make a cake. A metal head is someone who listens to metal. That's all there is to it. You need not to dress a certain way to be a metal head, this isn't MTV, you feckin clowns. You don't need to wear hoodies or ripped jeans and have long hair to be a metal head, you could shop at JC Penny and still listen to metal. By stating a lifestyle of a metal head, just makes it a potential fad. 'Metal Head', like any other subculture is just a title.
lmao, how do you use an example for a metal head?

'metal head': oh dude, today I dropped out of school and smoked some dope while listening to judas priest.

A fan of heavy metal music, who hates the mainstream and generally does whatever the hell he/she wants and is his/her own person
How to identify a metalhead: long hair, black leather jacket, denim jacket often with patches bearing band logos sown in, tshirt bearing a metal band's name, however, these are not necessary, because true metal lies in the soul
True Metal bands:Black Sabbath, Dio, Armored Saint, Manowar, Slayer, Metallica, Megadeth, Iron Maiden, Iced Earth, GWAR
False Metal bands: Limp bizkit, korn, slipknot, mudvayne, deftones, any nu-metal/ hair metal band
WARNING: DO NOT INSULT ANY TRUE METAL BAND NEAR A METALHEAD!!!! THIS WILL RESULT IN YOUR BEING RIPPED TO SHREDS, ESPECIALLY IF THERE ARE MORE THAN ONE OF US AROUND!!!!

Teenage Preppy Mtv sellout 2: Yeah!!!
Metalhead: GWAAAAAARRRRRRR!!!!(making devil horns with his hands)
Both Teenage Preppy Mtv sellouts: AIIIIEEEEEE!!!!!(Running like little girls and shitting themselves)

One who listens to Metal. Identified by their style and/or behavior:

Seen wearing a black band t-shirt or a similar dark color, blue to black jeans, shaved head to long hair, metal spikes or studs around the arms, neck, and waist.

The typical Metal Head sticks pretty strictly the Underground Music. However, many Metal Heads are very open-minded musically.

Metal Heads, no matter what the size, are efficient fighters. That metal on his person doubles as armor. Also, those lyrics don't just go in one ear and out the other. They stay in there and unleash a fury of hatred and adrenaline when triggered. Often times carries a knife or shank just waiting to use it on anyone that challenges them.

While dangerous or violent, most Metal Heads are some of the friendliest most down to Earth guys you'll ever meet.
Lyric Examples:

"I will show you all that I have mastered...Fear. Pain. Hatred. Power."
"Fuck your hopeless world, I am blacker than the sun."
"Endless Mornings cut by the dawn razor..."

Real Metal: Lamb of God, Pantera, Slayer, etc.
Metalcore: Killswitch Engage, Unearth, etc.
Fake Metal: System of a Down, Slipknot

Not a brain dead rocker, but a listener and follower of metal music. Not usually violent unless someone is giving them shit or saying bad stuff about there music.

WARNING!!! NEVER EVER TALK BAD ABOUT METAL AROUND OR TO A METALHEAD (ESPESIALLY THERE FAVORITE BAND) UNLESS YOU LIKE HAVING YOUR ARMS RIPPED OFF AND BEING BEATEN TO DEATH WITH THEM!
Gangster poser- Slayer sucks cock.

A fan of heavy metal, basically. Most metalheads are realtively fun loving people, and don't take themselves too seriously, although live and breathe the music they listen to.

many metalheads will sport long hair, black clothes, band T-shirts, spikes and leather. However, in no way is this needed. Go to a metal concert, and you will see a vast number of people all dressed differently. Denim is also very oftenly sported, but again it is not required.

Metalheads generally also have an interest in the dark arts, although very few actually practise them. Most metalheads are anti-conservative, and despite the belief that they are extremly violent, usually are peaceful and happy people that simply have a rougher idea of what is a "good time" than others, but if someone is uncomfortable with the situation, such as begining to feel distressed in a mosh pit, the metalheads surrounding them will help them out.

Many metalheads have been alienated as children or teenagers, and this has caused them to feel a great amount of sadness or anger, which has been cured by heavy metal. Because of this, most metalheads are accepting people.
Bob the metalhead: A 15-year-old who was picked on at school for a long time, and takes out his frustrations with his music.

Steve the metalhead: A 50-year-old heavy drinker who dresses in pastal colours most if the time and "normal" clothing who likes the smash things.

Brian the metalhead: A 24-year-old family man who doesn't drink. Dresses in black with spikes, and has a few books on the occult.
