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.

IZ DAT VHAT Y0V WANT ME T0 ZAY!??!?!

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

A metal head is generally someone who enjoys metal. Trying to identify a metal head can be an easy task or a hard one. The life style the genre usually portrays is one of not caring and rebelling. Basically, do your own thing and fuck everyone else. This ties in with the whole "difficult" to identify because what you find as something unique, someone else may not. A metal head is stereotyped as a long haired, jean wearing fighter. While this may be true to some, it's not always the case (Except for the fighting aspect or at least the ability to harness an excess amount of rage and use it towards violenct.) Like the many different sub genres, I believe there are different types of metal heads.

The Physical Metal Head:

The easiest of the three to identy. Usually falls in with the "Long hair and denim jeans." stereotype. Exactly what the title states, their interest in the genre is shown physically. Whether it be through tattoos littered around there body, to hair grown down to their waist. More likely to attend concerts.

The Mental Metal Head:

This is the metal head you most likely will not be able to pick out of a crowd. Not ashamed to like the genre, instead he/she prefers the quieter approach to his undying love for it. This is most likely the quiet person with a few friends, usually also under the mental type. The Mental will more than likely commit a larger scale act of violence than a Physical simply because his rage is always bottled up until it can't be bottled up any longer. Usually hates people. Least likely to attend the concerts, but know more about the band then most.

The Mixed Metal Head:

Read the title. Mix random qualities from each of the above types and you've got yourself a molotov cocktail of ass kicking. Most people will probably find themselves associating with this title, simply because of the diversity of the genre and its fans.

There is nothing better or worse between the 3 types shown here, because in the end all 3 enjoy Metal and know that if you're a true Metal Head: No one gives a fuck about what type they are.
You probably could already tell, but I'm a metal head.

Person adhering to the metal culture.
Agressive in nature, yet very fun loving people, know how to have a great time, and thrash/mosh like none others.
Generaly wear black, army clothes, boots, studs and chains. May resemble Rivethead, though DEFINETLY not them.

Also, in Quebec/Canada, most metal heads are not of the "Metallica rulez" type, they listen to the extremely aggressive Death Metal produced from there. Extreme hyperblast and technical bands like Kataklysm, Cryptopsy, Martyr, Neuraxis to name a few are part of this style.
Metalhead: GRRRAAAAAWWWWWWRRRRR!!!

A Metalhead is anything you, or they want it to be, there are many definitions of what people think a metalhead is, the ONLY one's tht are wrong are the ones saying that they are evil people with only destruction in mind (this is complete bull ¬_¬), a real metalhead is generally one of the nicest people you'll ever meet, sure, they tend to be extremely loud and intimidating in large groups because of all the noise they make, but its all in good fun, the true meaning of "metalhead" is to listen to the greatest kind of music EVER! and still respect others for their own opinion on it. Remember "Only treat others how you wish for them to treat you."
Jamie:- Lewis, i think its happening again...!
Lewis:- What's happening?!!! :O
Jamie:- ITS A MEGA METALHEAD MOSH OUT SESSION!!!!
*Both go completely nuts to any kind of metal (apart from emo,etc)*

One who listens to music for it's talent. The artists may be everyone from Bach and Mozart, to Arch Enemy and Iron Maiden. They believe that the so called "Class system" and "social status" are just labels that the insecure people in society have created to seperate themselves and make them feel superior. If a metal-head weres a shirt and is asked why, they will say "Cus I like it" NOT "Cus I'm a metal-head" True Metal heads will not say such things. Generally very accepting over different ways of life with a strong sense of moral and honor.
Dude 1: That guy isn't a metal-head, I checked his playlist, he listens to Bach and mozart
Dude 2: Whatever he's listening to Arch Enemy right now and yesterday was jamming to Iron Maiden, he's a complete metal-head
Dude 1: You can't listen to classical music and heavy metal and say you're a metal head!
Metal-Head: Actually you can, where do you think music started, with the classics. *Sighs* Oh the ignorance.....
