An obscure music listener who pretty much judges music by their obscurity than the actual music. Try going on sites like Sputnikmusic.com, last.fm, rateyourmusic or something like that or even youtube, and there will be some obscurists there. Usually they deny that fact that they are an obscurist and get batshit insane if you point it out. They may say they listen to whatever approves to their ears. However, often you'll notice that depending on what site they're on, if you look on their playlists on youtube or scrobbles on last.fm, everything there is ultra obscure music that hasn't made even 5 sells yet. Some will also point out the "true" and "false" of genres. Anything they like,they say is automatically underground,even if it has been famous before. Anything they hate, regardless of the popularity, they call mainstream or "hipster faggotry". Some people sometimes call these people "music elitists". However, they aren't necessarily elitists for this. They definitely are purists though. Some will say that all punk rock must be underground otherwise it's "poser punk", despite that the Ramones, the Clash and Sex Pistols were really popular, and even the Ramones are still famous today. Even a lot of punk bands have appeared on Guitar Hero so thus, that's completely stupid to think.
Normal guy: Hey, I heard you like metal music. You like Megadeth or Pantera or even Job for a Cowboy?
Music Obscurist: You're a fucking poser! Job for a Cowboy?! They are a bunch of posers! And you can't even name any real metal band besides the very famous and legendary ones. Listen to REAL metal if you want to be a real metalhead! Like Unbidden, Murder Reconstruction, Brain Drill, Anaya, Misery Index, etc.

Or known as a "scenester". Somebody who has straight hair covering the backs of the head with a fringe (the "emo haircut") only crazier and sometimes dyed neon colors, lots of neon and bright colored clothing, neon skinny jeans, gauges, piercings, fruity-designed shirts, hoodies, sunglasses, tattoos (applies to boys) and stuff who also might have a very up-to-date teenage-friendly attitude, no rules in spelling or grammar and often likes stuff like Invader Zim and Hello Kitty as well as electropop/crunkcore/techno music. When it comes to scenesters, the girls are very likely to wear makeup and mascara with crazy and dyed bright hair, while the boys tend to wear tattoos or baseball caps. Scene isn't to be confused with emo. Emo is just a genre of music which is played by bands such Thursday, Sunny Day Real Estate, Cap'n Jazz, Such Gold, Dashboard Confessional, Braid, etc. While scene isn't really a genre of music, the music associated with the scene fad is usually autotuned dance-pop/crunkcore/techno music that most likely has a lot of criticism. Stuff in music associated with the scene style includes BrokeNCYDE, Blood on the Dance Floor, Millionaires, I Set My Friends on Fire, 3OH!3, Dot Dot Curve, etc.
Scene kid: Scene is fuking awsom!!!!!

"Emo" kid/emo music fan: Scene is a ripoff of emo.

Rocker: Scene music isn't even rock, it's dance/pop.

Parents: My children are probably going through a phase.

a type of harsher emo music with screaming in it and stuff. Many times it gets confused with metal, death metal, melodic metalcore, hardcore punk, or any music with harsh vocals in it. Often confused by it's older fans as a punk style, when real hardcore punk is actually Minor Threat, Black Flag and Agnostic Front, it's more of a subgenre of emo, which derived from punk. If emo was punk, then MCR's first album was punk. Because believe me, their first album actually did sound A LOT like old school emo and had some hardcore influence. But I wouldn't call it punk. I think punk is more rebellious and is like Ramones and Sex Pistols and 4 skins and emo is short for emotional hardcore (despite sunny day real estate gave it a softer sound and remade it). It was influenced by hardcore, it was raw a lot and had screaming or speaking in it. Vocals often sounded very emotional but sometimes a little disturbed sometimes. At first it was pioneered by Pg 99. Early bands were Pg 99, Saetia, Heroin, Orchid and I Hate Myself. Today it's more of bands are I Would set myself on fire for you, Alexisonfire, thursday, funeral for a friend and the saddest landscape. Some newer bands sound a little less harsh and do less screams than older screamo. The reason why screamo isn't hardcore punk is because it doesn't sound ANYTHING like black flag or agnostic front or even bad brains.

Rock music popular in the 80s with catchy choruses, usually romantic but friendly lyrics, major scales and joyful tones and usually was more hard rock than metal. The bands usually were drag queens. They also often sold out and made power ballads or went unplugged.

"WHAT'S METAL ABOUT THAT?!" - Dee Snider

Oh and also, TWISTED SISTER ARE NOT GLAM METAL, THEY'RE JUST HEAVY METAL. They sound NOTHING like glam, and sound more like Judas Priest, Saxon and Ozzy than Poison and Ratt. Neither are their lyrics glam. How is rebellion and kicking ass with rock n roll considered love and lust?????? They only got called glam just cause of their frontmans look. Glam is NOT a fashion. It's music. And at least Dee Snider has a more shock rock look than a glamour look. He's meant to look freaky in that makeup, not glamour-friendly. And he doesn't wear makeup anymore. And shit even metal archives doesn't even call them glam. Even Metallica were huge fans of twisted sister and they obviously DESPISED glam. If TS are glam, so is Iron Maidrn and Saxon. It's obvious they don't sound anything like the glam bands, they don't sound all joyful catchy pop-influenced shit that glam does. I bet if u told a fan they were glam they'd knock your god damn lights out!!!
REAL glam metal: Quiet Riot, Kix, Poison, Cinderella, Warrant, Mötley Crüe (except the first 2 albums; they were just heavy metal), Ratt, Whitesnake, KISS (1983-1989), Dokken, White Lion, Black Veil Brides, etc

NOT glam: Twisted Sister, Alice Cooper (although the song poison sounds glam), GnR, Van Halen, Ozzy Osbourne, etc
