Uh, you completely missed my point. I didn't even know any of the Taake guys were gay; I was under the impression that the crotch-biting incident was just a joke or a failed attempt at looking hedonistic and blasphemous or something. My point is that there were many people that were apparently once fans, that then disowned the band over a crotch-biting incident at a live show. The only kind of people that would do that are 1) fundamentalist gay-bashing types (relatively rare in metal fandom) and 2) trve kvlt black metal types. Maybe I'm wrong, but I think if a couple of average looking (meaning no corpse paint or theatrics or anything else associated with image) death metal dudes starting biting each others' crotches on stage, it would probably raise some eyebrows but overall I think people would laugh at them for being silly, since death metal usually doesn't take itself so seriously. I mean, you have M-A where Christian black metal bands get little apostrophes around 'black', because image and ideology are considered so precious to fans of the genre.
BM is poseur-ridden way beyond any other metal genre in my experience, i don't disagree there. what i don't agree with is equating ideology with image.
and yea you can't really criticise people for rising to HBB's provocations unless you're gonna criticise the provocations themselves as well. people do sometimes overreact as well but i don't really see it as 'ganging up' so much as disagreeing in bulk.
I don't wear band shirts. I actually refuse to, kind of a statement because 9/10 metalheads I know rock the look and my inner child is still a nonconformist.
Really though the people I know who dress the part only seem to associate with other people who dress the part and I refuse to conform to that faggotry. Plus, you know.... Big kid jobs. My hair hasn't been purple in years, and I'd bet some others here were glad to roll a sleeve over their tats for a bigger paycheck and bigger vinyl collection.
It doesn't matter. It should never matter. Nothing matters. You don't matter.
Words to live by.
lot of words for something that doesn't matter
All the sudden everybody is too cool to support a band they love.
Purple hair never has been and never will be metal. Pretty sure most people who 'rock the look' manage regular jobs as well.
I wear band shirts most of the time and most of my t-shirts are band shirts. I like supporting artists that I like by buying a shirt at shows. I also wear a studded belt and have done for years. Apart from that I don't think I look like your typical metalhead at all.
Also, I associate with many people who don't wear band shirts and I have a good job. Crazy shit, I know.
How to appreciate non-conformity: don't be a fucking faggot
I don't think people who buy and wear band shirts are fags, I just think people who commit to the whole look and have a weird obsession with being 'metal' are fags. They're one-dimensional, no different than some high school clothing trend. I guess my obvious and popular stance wasn't obvious enough. Probably because STN is on her period again. How many periods do you German broads have a year?
My quote was a joke based on something Cythraul did a while back.
I wear band shirts to support the bands and because they look cool.
Every t shirt I own is a band shirt. It's weird that the one I own that offends people the most seems to be a pallbearer shirt with a giant cross made of naked faceless people crawling on each other. (No genitals)
Can you post the photo of that t-shirt?
I hate shopping. I just order a bunch of band shirt every once in a while, so I have pretty much only band shirt, apart from one shirt that looks like it has cum on it because someone put some cleaning supplies on it and it left stains. Other than that, I don't bother with metal look.
it's ok to like metal and not look metal all the time...as long as you don't look like a faggot the times you don't
what's more important is the metal attitude. some "metalheads" have pussy ass personalities and gay happy manners of speech and lame worldviews. when you meet me you can tell im metal even if im not dressed like it cuz im pretty cold and emotionless
although i do sort of look metal, my hair is kind of long and i have a goatee and a couple band shirts. i don't give any effort to it though cuz i give 0 fucks about anything
what a fucking try hard
ITT we learn that fanny packs "look sorta metal".
Here's a stock photo of it
Seriously I have some really offensive shirts like nunslaughter and profanatica but when I wear this people look at me like I'm the antichrist. I don't understand why.
