Metal fans in my opinion get a bit of a rough deal, and I think that people are guilty of judging them just by how they look. Maybe not so much these days, but in the past a typical 'metalhead' would have the long hair, tattoos and dress in black. The band names such as Pantera and Megadeath didn't do them any favours either, and some of the album covers that also got made into T-shirts would give the impression that you wouldn't want to go anywhere near them. In reality, despite how they look, a lot of metal bands actually make songs that are pretty deep and meaningful if you take time to listen to them, and the fans that follow the music are actually pretty knowledgeable and not the wannabe Hell's Angels that we all think. I'm far from being a metal fan, but I have got to know some and looks can certainly be deceiving.
