    It would seem that in the world of heavy metal a solid mysogynistic womanizing force is somewhat non-existent. In the 1980's there were plenty of pop oriented metal bands who drove a strong female audience crazy but these days all you see is anything but. Women like a tune they can dance to and this was why other genres of music have taken over metal's once fanatical female crowd. Do you think metal has a chance at attracting women on the scale that pop oriented metal bands of the 1980's once did, or do you think metal is on an irreversible crash course with extinction?

    Interesting question. I like to think that metal doesn't need to attract female listeners, instead they should come looking for it themselves. Since most of female population likes lifeless melodic music with no meaning it should come as no surprise that metal is disregarded as "just a noise". However, I personally believe that metal can make a comeback, but it would be a slow process. Slow, but possible.

    It's a good thing that all of that plastic drivel and pop-style crowd drawing has died off (though Ghost seem to have tapped into that phenomenon somewhat) and now instead you get mostly genuine metal fans of all sorts.

    In my opinion this doesn't only have to do with attracting women. If metal were to attract more women these days, it would consequently attract more men as well and create a wider audience, thus making it more popular. But the real question is: Would metal still be the same if made mainstream?

    Not necessarily true.

    I've seen no evidence to suggest that more female fans generates more male fans, any examples you could give me where this has been the case?

    How about Steel Panther? They encourage women to go on stage during their shows, who enjoy the attention, and men also go because they enjoy the sight of tits and their increased likelihood of getting pussy.

    Yes but those men were probably already metalheads. You seemed to imply that more woman fans would bring more men into metal.

    where i live the metal scene doubled since five years ago. i don't think it's on its way to extinction. also, there are many new promising bands that have emerged in the last years. in my opinon metal will never die, it's a very popular genre among young people

    i think most musicians kinda sort of choose between having mostly male fans or mostly female fans
    most metalheads are gonna be male
    where as most fans of Justin Beiber, One Direction, Carly Rae Jepson, are going to be female

    can anyone really think of any musician/band that actually has something really close to exactly half the fans male and the other half female??

    In the 80’s and 90’s there was less social awareness, and women’s sexuality seemed to be focused (groomed) around doing what men wanted them to do and acting like they were “into it”...times have changed. I love a lot of hair metal, but looking at the lyrics/behavior now that I’m older- it really paints a lot of those bands/members out to seem like borderline pedophiles...women should be able to enjoy music without having to “put out” for the band members or male fans...

    Yeah, most of them were just mid-level assholes, then you had the elite Steven Tyler and Vince Neil style pieces of shit...

    a huge amount of the males who went through the effort that it took to become famous 80's musicians just also happened to be the kind of guys who would have been male sluts without the fame
    and then the guys who were in their 20's-30's in the 1980's just didn't try to hide the fact that they were slutty males
    before the 80's you had male celebs who were male sluts but they were just more discreet about it
    there's tons of women who claim to have had sex with Sinatra and Elvis, and the whole world's convinced that Kennedy fucked Marilyn Monroe but the general public doesn't really usually think about that instantly when you say those names the same way everyone automatically thinks "male sluts" when you say "Motley Crue"
