Lame pop music performed by feminine men that wear makeup and have no historical knowledge of heavy metal.
Poser metal reared it's ugly head in the mid-1980's. Corporate television producers have tried to re-write rock history and give this type of teeny bopper bubblegum credibility within pop culture history. It was a joke then, is a joke now. Practioneers of this genre include Poison, Warrant, Winger, Slaughter, Skid Row, Motley Crue.

Poser Metal's most popular example is the entire Nu-Metal genre. Bands such as Limp Bizkit, Korn, Slipknot, Linkin Park, Staind, Papa Roach, System of a Down, ect.

These bands are posing to be metal. If you ever listen to these bands, they're clearly not metal at all. They're in it for the money. Metal all about the technicality of the music and musicians skill. These bands have no talented musicians and their music is no where near technical.
Poser : Dude some faggot called Slipknot poser metal! They were just played on TRL along with Hawthorne Hieghts. They're so fucking metal.

Metal that has no point in it's lyrical content and is incapable to be listened to by any real metal head on this earth. I.E. Dethklok, Cannibal Corpse, Bring Me the Horizon, I Killed the Prom Queen, We Butter The Bread With Butter. The list goes but i cannot bare to name anymore of these trivial bands. And to you fuckers who enjoy this shit. Go listen to some goddamn Black Sabbath. Oh and Fuck Kiss.
Loud obnoxious noise coming from a group of Posers
Metal Head: Hey turn that shit off!
Poser 1: This is I Wrestled A Bear Once and it's better than anything you listen to Faggot.

Metal Head walks over to table finds phone in which it is being played on and smashes it.

Metal Head: Fuck You and that whinny arrogant emo shit to. Fuckin Poser Metal
