Top Ten Reasons Why Metal Is Bad: A Lesson In Ignorance

A video that clocks in at just over one minute in length was recently posted online that gives everyone ten really good reasons why metal is a bad thing. Of course, as soon as this video was unearthed, thousands upon thousands of metal fans immediately renounced their love of the genre... but enough of the sarcasm, if you can withstand horrible music, bad spelling and grammar, a bright pink background, an almost self-parodying username and awful "logic," then check out the video below to understand what's so bad about metal.

What's Next?

Yeah, let's have Justin Bieber compete with Mike Patton, Simone Simons, Roy Khan, Rob Halford, Athera, Maynard James Keenan, Floor Jansen, Bruce d***enson and ICS Vortex. And to have him do it without that autotune effect that he always uses. Hell even when they're not screaming, Greg Puciato, Henri Sattler, Dave Hunt and Howard Jones can all sing incredibly well.

omg of course i see the truth now, metal is definitely terrible. i'll just delete all my metal songs, try to scalp my sonisphere and diamond head tickets, and go and live a happy life... where i'm force-fed canned sh** through the radio like a decent person...

hang on, something's not quite right here. ah of course. metal is one of the only forms of music with any integrity left whatsoever. metal doesn't sell out. metal is music for people who like music, not image. if that's 'bad', then i'm happy to listen to 'bad' music.
anyone who can call the likes of dio 'bad' anyway isn't really worth listening to...

Heh, I thought this was a joke too until I clicked on the user's profile. Before today I had never even heard of this Justin Bieber guy (??). Sadly, now I have. The notes on talent have really opened my eyes, though.

Vocal-tuning: the talent of the 21st Century.

That song was so badly tuned I couldn't even tell it was a male singing until the end had me wondering if there are girls named Justin these days. I suppose you never quite know with the way some people name their kids.

How about we send him to Japan? According to the person who uploaded(If you can call someone with a rock for a brain a person) that video, in another one of hers she said anime / manga are bad. So Justin Bieber could use his beautiful autot-- I mean, unaltered voice, and defeat the great evils in Japan.

Viva la Bieber! I'm gonna throw away Kill 'Em All and download Baby off iTunes...

hey! don't pick on the guy/girl/tranny who made the video, he's obviously a ruh-tard. because:
1.) the spelling is atrocious.

2.) justin bieber is incredibly gay and now i need a long shower after that vid.

3.)they listen to justin bieber.

not to mention the pink background and the mention of satanism like 3 times so really it's only makes 7 reasons why metal would be bad, which leads me to:

4.) this person cannot count.

therefore it leads me to believe this person is delightfully ruh-tarded and someone who i'd gladly steal a nose from till they beg to get it back. so give him/her/it a break guys.
