A proud listener of the Metal music genre. Metal can be broken down into sub-genre such as Power Metal, Death Metal, and much more. Such sub-genres such as Glam Metal and Nu Metal are widely critized and mocked by other metal heads. Some of the most well known bands are Black Sabbath, VENOM, and Bathory. The stareotyped metalhead dress is a denim patch jacket with multiple band patches on them, blue jeans, and a metal shirt, accompanied with shirt with a metal band on the front, combat boots, and long hair, usually past the shoulders but with modern times, short hair is also wildely accepted in metalhead culture. Though each of the different sub-genres also seem to dictate a different type of dress, such as Black Metal which dictates more of a black leather jacket, corpse paint, and bullet belts, or like Nu Metal idiotic baggy pants and shirts.
"Dude those crazy metalheads in the mosh pit totally smashed that stupid idiot with the SlipKnot shirt!"

Someone who is heavily involved with some aspect of metal. Usually has long hair, wears black clothes, and has band-T's. But not always. Metalheads are defined by what they listen to, not how they dress. They often despise rap and they destroy anyone who disses metal round them.
metalheads often have short tempers

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
