Question for metalheads?

by DIY wedding planner on November 2, 2012

Just to get an idea of where metalheads stand on certain things, I have compiled a few questions for you. And you do have to pick one. Also, “fan-wise” means music fans. Like preps for pop music, emo kids for emo, etc.

1. Paramore or Lady Gaga?
2. Black Veil Brides or Nickelback?
3. “Emo” or pop? (music wise)
4. Emo or pop? (fan-wise)
5. Emo or indie? (music wise)
6. Emo or indie? (fan-wise)
7. Emo or scene? (music-wise)
8. Emo or scene? (fan-wise)
9. Emo or rap? (Music)
10. Emo or rap? (fans)

Also, someone today told me that I act like a metalhead with some of the music and look like a scene kid. So is that a compliment or an insult?
@Seller Opinions. What they dislike more.
@Elaine For emo, just think Scary Kids Scaring Kids, old Escape The Fate, and Chiodos.
@Mr. Steel It has a lot to do with observation. It’s a long and complicated reason.

do I really have to do this sh*t? okay but just for fun this doesn’t really mean anything.

1. Paramore. I will almost listen to ANYTHING other than Lady Goga or whatever the fu*k her weird @ss name is.

2. I will NOT listen to Nickelback so Black Veil Brides whoever the hell they are.
3. pop. I do like SOME pop music mostly 80s though.
4. pop
5. indie as independent artists? or the many times that people refer to it as Alternative. either way Indie.
6. Indie
7. ********
8. ********
9. ********
10. ********

sorry I did the best I could

1. I prefer Paramore
2. I’m more familiar with Nickelback
3. both I guess more often pop cause i cant think of emo bands
4. uh both idk emo I guess
5. more indie
6. more indie
7. Im not sure I know scene music?
8. both I guess
9. More emo
10. idk I like both

Thats for what I like more
Im not really sure what an emo sound is for me emo is just another branch of rock and I’m all about rock, scene style blends at some points with rock style and metal it all connects so its no biggie. But over all you should just say to him “I’m me” people don’t have to fall in to labels and stereotypes associated with them.

SolracV [Cowbells, indeed!] November 2, 2012 at 8:59 am

1. Paramore (I think Paramore is good. Well, the Riot! album, that is).
2. Nickelback (I like Saving Me and Photograph)
3. Emo
4. Damn….Pop, I guess.
5. Indie (I love Indie music).
6. Indie
7. Emo
8. Emo
9. Rap (I like Rap, especially Immortal Technique and Chino XL)
10. Hmm…..Emo

And who cares what he thinks xD self-reliance ftw.


Death Metal Is Not Screamo November 2, 2012 at 9:34 am

I refuse to support anything within that list, except maybe Indie because it’s at least tolerable (despite some of its fans having huge egos)


Duke Nukem November 2, 2012 at 10:16 am

1. Lady Gaga
2. Black Veil Brides
3. pop
4. pop
5. indie
6. emo
7. emo
8. emo
9. rap
10. rap

I promise you that you are not a metalhead.


TheTrooper November 2, 2012 at 10:23 am

1. Lady Gaga
2. I don’t know BVB and I know Nickelback is awful.

Most, if not all, emo and scene kids listen to post-hardcore, rap/pop, and indie music together. Anything trendy. So 3-10 are contradictive.

“Also, someone today told me that I act like a metalhead with some of the music and look like a scene kid. So is that a compliment or an insult?”

Whomever that person was doesn’t know the difference of a metalhead and a scene kid. Scene kids dress in trendy fashion whereas metalheads listen to obscure music genres.

this isnt very metal.
scene kids are gay
Pantera, metallica, sepultura,cannibal corpse, behemoth, slayer is the way to get things done

1.) I’m kinda getting into both of them at the moment, so it’s hard to choose, but Paramore
2.) Black Veil Brides for sure, though I do love Nickelback
3.) Emo
4.) Emo
5.) Emo
6.) Emo
7.) Emo
8.) Scene
9.) Emo
10.) Emo

Also, I’d take it as a compliment. But some people hate being told they look like a scene kid. So take it how you want. I still say it’s a compliment though. :)


Carlos C November 2, 2012 at 12:15 pm

1) Who?
2) Who, again?
3 and 4) Neither, but I’d tend to go for emo, because pop sucks
5 and 6) Indie
7 and 8) They’re the same thing
9 and 10) Geez, do I need to pick?


Mr. Steel November 2, 2012 at 12:54 pm

1. Neither
2. Neither
3. Lame
4. fans are lame
5. both music sucks
6. fans are lame
7. both music sucks
8. fans are really lame
9. i prefer old school rap
10. i prefer rap fans there at least semi-cool

why did you put Emo in almost every question?

So this is what happened to goth crutule in the US? Except now they listen to light rock, drink red bull, and instead of wearing pantyhose the boys opts for tight jeans? LAME. How can I get a book deal to write a guide to senior citizen crutule? I’ll call it Circling the Drain: A Necessary Guide to Being Old.
