A vast music genre which can house, and satisfy all of the theraputic needs of any teenage spirit. Penetrating riffs, sub-level bass playing, ubercool machine gun drumming and in many cases beautiful lyrics.
Metal has the potential to cover any emotion, unlike other genres such as Emo, which can only cover whining, and loss.
Metal is emotion, motion, melody and RAW FUCKING POWER!!! All blended into one creamy mixture of aceness which in my eye, can rarely be matched by any other genre.
Metal Guy, "I'm totally satisfied listening to this."

Emo kid, "Boo hoo..."

Metal is quite obviously enough either an element of the earth or a very wonderful genre originating from rock. Rock is also wonderful. "Metal Heads" are people who listen to Metal. These people are the best people the great Dieties unknown to us created. Those formentioned Dieties who reign above us love Metal Heads. In fact, they most likely despise anti-Metal-ers, that's what pop and most Emo is for. The great degredation set upon us by the whorey teens and tweens who think that Metal sucks and that faux music with a singer who may or may not be a good artist is a horrible thing. Do not judge someone by their taste in music, unless they adore whores, men and women alike, who sing to "bop bop bop", as mentioned by a previous definition. By saying that Metal sucks or that Metal Heads are unintelligent, you are most likely saying that you are either Old, a whore worshiping shit, very biased and ignorant to the "kick-ass-i-ness" of the Rock world, OR just need to stop sucking your boyfriend's dick long enough to listen to real music.
Poppy Bitch : Metal sucks, lYke, Oh, My God...I worship Paris Hilton...

Poppy Bitch's should die and *hypocritically enough of me to say it, I know...* broaden their dumb-ass perspectives

A sub-genre of rock music. Notorious for being heavy (hence the name, heavy metal), dark, and often deep pitched. The bass and drums are often played in sync while the guitar plays the main rhythm with riffs, licks, and chords. Stereotypic metal is often associated with darkness, destruction, pain, and Satanism. Ladies and Gentlemen, this is the music mommy and daddy warned you not to listen to.
The father of metal, Ozzy Osbourne, bit the head off of a bat during the song "Bark At The Moon". THAT is metal.

The best kind of music ever made. Created as a branch of rock, jazz and blues.

People stereotype it to death, saying it's nothing but loud guitars and screaming. Most of it is actually composed of complex riffs, excellent solo's, and the best singing in the music business. Sure, there are a few black sheep's in the genre but when you ignore that stuff, you will see that it is awesome.

Listened to by metalheads, who are also stereotyped. Close-minded people think that metalheads are nothing but loud and obnoxious rejects. This is usually untrue, a vast majority of metalheads are deep thinkers and individuals who don't just follow the crowd.
Some examples of good metal bands are
Iron Maiden
Lamb of God
Avenged Sevenfold (before their self-titled album)
Black Sabbath
Led Zeppelin
System of a Down (although their genre can be disputed)

Examples of metal stereotyping
Dumbass: Eww, u lizen 2 metallica? dats all just screamin. u should lizen 2 50 cent or fall out boi!
Metalhead: Fuck you, I won't like something just because it's popular. Metal has deep lyrics and talented musicians.
Dumbass: nu! its just screamin! the only good metal is avril lavigne!
Metalhead: Fuck you, she's a poser? And have you ever heard Metallica?
Dumbass: yah...
Metalhead: What song?
Dumbass: Uh *runs*
Metalhead: Yeah, that's right, go conform with the crowd! *Walks off with awesome friends who are also Metalheads*
