A Metal Head is a person who listens to Death, Thrash, Speed, Black, Shred, and maybe Melodic Metal. Most wont listen to Alt or Nu-Metal and will probably shun it. There is no definate set of clothing attire but most can be seen wearing some type of jeans ranging from blue to black, also most likely have on a band shirt with either long hair or a shaved head, if they have facial hair it will most likely be a med-big beard or a goatee. A common mistake is that people tend to call them Satanic because of the music they listen to, this is not true. Yes, a metal head may be Satanic but this is simply a coincidence. They often fight, mainly for one of four reasons:
1: They have been having a bad day and you get in their way, say something wrong, etc.
2: They are in a good/content mood and you do something to provoke/anger them
3: They have had anger bottled up for a while and can no longer stand it, thus lashing out at anybody.
and finally the fourth reason

4: Simply because they like to fight. That being said its generally not the best idea to pick a fight with a metal head because whether they look it or not they are most likely a good fighter. They have a tight-knit group of friends, whom they are loyal to and share a good connection with. They are educated and civil, contrary to popular belief.

A metal head is generally someone who enjoys metal. Trying to identify a metal head can be an easy task or a hard one. The life style the genre usually portrays is one of not caring and rebelling. Basically, do your own thing and fuck everyone else. This ties in with the whole "difficult" to identify because what you find as something unique, someone else may not. A metal head is stereotyped as a long haired, jean wearing fighter. While this may be true to some, it's not always the case (Except for the fighting aspect or at least the ability to harness an excess amount of rage and use it towards violenct.) Like the many different sub genres, I believe there are different types of metal heads.

The Physical Metal Head:

The easiest of the three to identy. Usually falls in with the "Long hair and denim jeans." stereotype. Exactly what the title states, their interest in the genre is shown physically. Whether it be through tattoos littered around there body, to hair grown down to their waist. More likely to attend concerts.

The Mental Metal Head:

This is the metal head you most likely will not be able to pick out of a crowd. Not ashamed to like the genre, instead he/she prefers the quieter approach to his undying love for it. This is most likely the quiet person with a few friends, usually also under the mental type. The Mental will more than likely commit a larger scale act of violence than a Physical simply because his rage is always bottled up until it can't be bottled up any longer. Usually hates people. Least likely to attend the concerts, but know more about the band then most.

The Mixed Metal Head:

Read the title. Mix random qualities from each of the above types and you've got yourself a molotov cocktail of ass kicking. Most people will probably find themselves associating with this title, simply because of the diversity of the genre and its fans.

There is nothing better or worse between the 3 types shown here, because in the end all 3 enjoy Metal and know that if you're a true Metal Head: No one gives a fuck about what type they are.
You probably could already tell, but I'm a metal head.

Kay, I'm sick of looking at the difinitions of how a metal head lives, that's like trying to describe how to make a cake. A metal head is someone who listens to metal. That's all there is to it. You need not to dress a certain way to be a metal head, this isn't MTV, you feckin clowns. You don't need to wear hoodies or ripped jeans and have long hair to be a metal head, you could shop at JC Penny and still listen to metal. By stating a lifestyle of a metal head, just makes it a potential fad. 'Metal Head', like any other subculture is just a title.
lmao, how do you use an example for a metal head?

'metal head': oh dude, today I dropped out of school and smoked some dope while listening to judas priest.

a metal head,or headbangeris a person who listens to and loves heavy metal. Not just because its cool, its our way of life. we can be found anywhere from local undergroud shows to world wide metal festavles like wacken. Most metal heads have long hair or shaved heads,wear black band tee's and jeans/cargo pants,but just because you dont dress that way doesnt mean your not metal.most metal heads dispize slipknot and hate scenekids and love circlepits.alot of metal heads are quite and might seem scary,but if you get to know them they are way nicer then they look,that is unless you insult a band or musician infront of them.(you dont want to get on there bad side).
"hey look at that badass metal head beating the shit out of that scene kid in the pit."

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

A very small ammount of people fit into this category. Your average highschool would have four or less of them at most, seeing as most people who listen to "metal" actually listen to Alt. Rock/Nu metal. Metalheads are usually spotted by their looks. Usually denim jeans (Blue or black), band shirts, long hair/shaved hair, etc. The metalheads truely are the stupidest group of people to pick a fight with, we may be the quiet type, but metalheads could easilly wipe out multiple kids, and have a short temper that goes along with that. The metal culture however has dropped quite a bit, seeing as how the "hip" thing is to listen to rap or numetal.
Real metal bands: Iced Earth, Judas Priest, Amon Amarth, Bathory, Morbid Angel, Manegarm, Hammerfall, Blind Guardian, Burzum, Borknagar, Emperor, Immortal, Einherjer, Finntroll, etc

NOT metal bands: Korn, Slipknot, Mudvayne, Godsmack, Limp Bizkit, etc
