The infamous(ly ridiculous) anti-metal club video:



How do you react to it? What are your opinions?

I find it quite annoying to see things like this, but, in the end I couldn't really care for the generalizations and nonsense that those people make. They also make themselves look kind of dumb and immature, just look at 8. "Metal bitches talk shit and disses any genre that sells more than them... which is pretty much most genres". Surely, this vid says more about the makers than people who listen metal. 

Today I was going through some comments at a Dutch website and stumbled upon someone who said that people who listen to rock often aren't really intelligent. The irony.

That's true. It's an interesting study in how to rhetorically undermine oneself by using really weak arguments. I pan on using and the debate it's caused it next time I teach a coruse in rhetoric.

That was actually quite funny.
 
One sentence I believe starts with "In my school...." Ermm
 
In other words, (A) my balls haven't dropped yet (B) I'm sick of all the talent these groovy metalheads get and (C) the only (loose) music terms I am aware of are the Hansons, Britney and Nelly the Elephant.
 
[No-one has quite explained yet that Nelly is a (c)rap artist.] Wink

Hmm.. in that video they managed to call us "angry at everything" and "having sex with Satan"...

Then they make a racist comment like "you're white people mostly from the suburbs, with our life on a fucking silver spoon".

Honestly, these people are idiots. I'm friends with many people who dislike metal, but they voice their opinion in a civil and respectful manner. You can say most of these "negative" things about every single subgenre, but these people don't like metal and decided to pick on us.

I can't stand people who stereotype everyone and everything.

I also love how "violin and piano take more talent than guitar". LOL

There are classical guitarists out in the world as well... are they any less talented than a classical pianist?

Well I guess itīs good that he wrote his opinions down and didnīt just record them because obviously Iīm deaf from listening to too much metal musicUnhappy. Well I actually found the whole thing a bit funny really. Itīs just a little angsty teenager with too much time on his hands and not enough brains to make a valid critique. Letīs smile at thisSmile and turn up the volume once againRawksStone Deaf ForeverLOL

Once the holocaust was brought up, Godwin's law came into effect. The argument was essentially over. So I stopped watching.

In any event, there are and will probably always be haters who make blanket statements on anything, be it music, art, or even other stuff such as college rivalries or political opinions. People who make these types of videos have time to kill and probably aren't doing anything important themselves. They're undeveloped teenagers who know nothing. So pay them no mind.



Also, what's wrong with the Chinese Erhu?
Lost respect for these archives when I saw Creed added, among other bands. Not going to be foruming here anymore. You can keep my reviews if you want.

This person is rather uneducated and you could make the same (with some modifications) arguments about basically any other genre on earth. What you have here is extreme generalization, which is a rather close minded approach to looking at things. But, when all things are said and done, I really don't care. I'll continue to be a "metal bitch" with my "gay long hair" and enjoy my "emotionless and senseless" music.

It's also interesting to observe how all the response-videos, many of which use weak arguments themselves, still manage to shoot down every single on of the ten so-called "reasons".

I was in stitches by the end, where he mentions the lack of minorities/women and then devotes a whole point to how ugly female metalheads are - as if this somehow explains why metal is rubbish. LOL
