Some one who listens to metal. Period. Whether it be thrash, death, grind, or even black metal, thats all there is to it. Listening to it. Metal isn't some cult. Metal isn't about wearing band t-shirts or doc martens or wearing black constantly. Metal is a type of music that lets you vent your frustration, not the way you dress.
Mallcore kid: Look at my wicked slipknot t-shirt. I'm total kvlt black metal because I wear black and listen to ICP.

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!

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

ANYONE who listens to and loves real metal regardless of how they dress or act or fight. "Metal Head" talks about ones music interests and not their personality.
metal head: one who listens to metal

A person who likes metal music and attemtps (sometimes succeeds) in going to any metal concert they can. often mosh while fast music is playing. metal heads dont nessacarily wear black or wear band tee's they can dress however. Generally nice people edspite how some are imaged.
Sean(metalhead)~Pretty nice guy, kinda odd but still a good guy to hang out with, enjoys metal music and tries to go to the Ike Box as much as possible. Generally tries to get a bunch of people to join him but is cool if they cant.

Zach(wannabe)~Pretty mean, anti-social, sits in a corner while music play and complains how the band is pussy music, tries to stay away from concerts to avoid people.

A follower of true metal music. A person who usually still listens to original metal bands (Judas Preist, Iron Maiden, Slayer, Metallica, Pantera, Motley Crue, etc.). Almost always identified by long hair, sleeveless denim jacket (airbrush painting on back), chain wallet, studded bracelet, black tee, faded jeans (ripped knees, or cut-off shorts), black shoes: old high tops, boots, or worn out tennis shoes. Metalheads tend to be very aggressive due to the intense, adrenaline-surging music. They are very free willed, and don't care how they look. Tend to drink often, and can be found air guitaring in public, with freinds, or at parties. They know true metal, and don't argue it. They are also the last people you'd want to fight. Have great hatred for "emo kids" and wiggers. 95% can play an instrument, and is also very loud due to almost constant screaming. They will do as they please and let no one tell them otherwise, also most are fearless.
Wow, that metalhead took out two guys without spilling his beer. That is a true bad ass.

1) A fan of Heavy Metal music, often stereotyped as dope heads or satanists. This stereotype is completely false (see Sam Dunn). A metalhead dresses however the hell he or she wants to, which is maybe the reason why we carry certain stereotypes, its very unfortunate. Many of us are very loyal and hard working individuals, we are not normally found working in high-paying jobs such as lawyers, doctors, politicians, etc, not because we can't do those jobs, but because we don't want to. We see the ugliness and corruption that goes on in the white collar world and we want no part of it. Most of all, we are the most passionate music fans on the planet.

2) A person who wants to destroy the emo culture.
You might be a metalhead if:

- You went to go see the movie Iron Man thinking it was a Black Sabbath documentary.

- Every time you hear someone say the word "master", you repeat it.

- You do a school reasearch project on Panthers, but write the whole thing in spanish (that's a clever one, might take you a few seconds to catch on).

- You did a book report on "Rime Of The Ancient Mariner" by Samuel T. Coleridge

- You win a poker game with the Ace Of Spades

- You want to defacate on Tipper Gore's grave

- You want to watch every emo get eaten alive by a pack of wolves

- You are intelligent

- You want the following songs to be played at your funeral:
Fade To Black by Metallica
A Tout Le Monde By Megadeth
Hallowed be thy name by Iron Maiden
Born In A Casket by Cannibal Corpse

- You think of an awesome Slayer song when you study the Holocaust.
