Awesome 2005 documentary directed by metalhead Sam Dunn, an anthropoligist from British Columbia. The film studies many topics relating to Heavy Metal, including:

-Who the very first Heavy Metal band is (widely believed to be Black Sabbath, as suggested in the film) as well as the roots of metal
-The backgrounds of Heavy Metal musicians and their fans
-Gender and sexuality roles in Metal
-Why a lot of bands have faced problems with censorship due to their lyrical content, album art, and live shows
-Satanic and/or anti-christian beliefs followed by a handful of Norweigian Black Metal bands, as well as other views on religion, satanism, and other controversial topics when associated with metal.

People interviewed include (but are NOT limited to) Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath, Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden, Alice Cooper, Lemmy of Motorhead, James "Munky" Shaffer" of Korn, Ronnie James Dio, Corey Taylor and Joey Jordinson of Slipknot, Kerry King and Tom Araya of Slayer, Gaahl of Gorgoroth, Alex Webster and George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher of Cannibal Corpse, and many other metal musicians and producers, as well as multiple fans, socioligists, and even one minister.

The film is a largely independent film with limited theatrical release, so very few are totally familiar with it. A sequal entitled "Global Metal" was released in 2008, which is probably just as good but even less known.
Brad thinks Nickelback is Metal, so I'm going to show him "Metal: A Headbanger's Journey" to teach him what real metal is about.

A person, often an adult in their 40s or 50s, who resides in any suburb of a major city and holds the firm belief everything they and their family need is in their suburb and others surrounding it and rarely, if ever, venture into the core city, either out of fear of being a victim of a crime (even if they live near a city with low crime rates) or out of contempt for the cities mostly liberal/open-minded view points that clash with their staunch conservative ideas.

Militant suburbanites are not very common in communities within 15 miles of the core city and make up less than half a metro area's population, but they are not common to spot, as they feel the need to conform to whatever their neighbors and/or coworkers are doing. Militant Suburbanites that do venture into the city usually tend to stick to the most crowded areas of the city and will avoid any form of public transportation.
There are three levels of Militant Suburbanite:

Level 1-most willing to venture into a core city, though only do so for certain occasions, usually being sporting events, some concerts and conventions/trade shows/conferences, travel (driving through in a car, heading to the airport, etc.) and work, if their job is in the city. All other entertainment and shopping they feel can be done in the suburbs.

Level 2-will venture into the core city from time to time, but usually only for work and travel

Level 3-rarest of all. Is absolutely not willing to venture into the core city at all. They will go out of their way to not find a job there and will even refuse to drive through there on the highway.

Stupid, pointless method for writing a paper and citing your sources. Dictates that every little detail must be done in a certain way and if you make the smallest mistake then you deserve to fail (and be expelled if your in college).
The paper took me only a half hour, but I ended up spending all night correcting it because of the stupid MLA format rules.

Contrary to what most people are saying on this site, LP are actually a good group. Yes they aren't as good as other Nu-Metal bands like Korn and Disturbed (I wouldn't even consider them Nu-Metal or any kind of Metal music really, more like straight up Rap Rock) but they are still a very creative, talented band that's a helluva lot better than most Rap/Pop crap on the radio today.
Linkin Park is not great, but still good. Too many people are just closed minded.
