I don't understand it. Can someone explain the appeal?

Me either. At terroja.com, (TAA's old forum) like all of the people were in love with metal. I never understood it. It isn't musical, and the lyrics suck.

This, tbh.

I don't understand how anyone can listen to Country, Rap, Pop, ect. Those kinds of music all sound terrible to me.

Just what is this "ect"? Those genres have nothing in common.

They are similar in that they are all terrible.

Etc. was every other genre that I hate, but didn't feel like listing. I put the etc. there just to show that the list goes on.

I can listen to most genres as long as the song in question is a capella remake by a good group.

Here's an experiment I love to do with people who bash metal.

Please tell me, in the most detail possible, the type of music you enjoy listening to.

99% of metal is pish. But the other 1% is so damn good it ruins every other type of music.

Metal is also the most intelligent of genres. Also the most retarded. That's how varied it is.

I did, though I'm sure you are probably unfamiliar with the style. Here is " class="bbc_link" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">an example, though the upload messed with the quality a tiny bit.

I only listen to music with the same beat in every single song (you know the one).  The lyrics have to be about sex, money, and must be completely self indulgent on the artist's part because I really care a lot about people who appear to live better, more exciting lives than me so I can at least live vicariously through them.

Also, if it's not sung in autotune it's boring.  Sorry, it had to be said.  Autotune makes it possible for more beautiful people to perform catchy successful songs that the people who were decidedly too ugly to perform them wrote.

Sarah McLachlan, Dido, Sarah Harmer, some Sophie B Hawkins, Leonard Cohen, Fiona Apple, Amanda Marshal, Damhnait Doyle, Milla Jovovich and " class="bbc_link" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Lady&Bird

You can sorta see the stream of my music preferences.

Mostly they do it in order to correctly tune instruments, most commonly Piano. Not guitars though, no that would be too easy instead you have to put up with de dum de dum de dem KEY CHANGE de dum de dem dem KEY CHANGE de dem de dum de dum. Next string.

Anyway, that is why people listen to metal.

How old are you? 15? Come on, almost every kind of music has something good, and it's valuable (I would only rule out Reggeaton), and artistic.
Each one of us like different things, but that says nothing about the quality of the music. If you like metal, you will see what's good, if you like R&B you'll see the good in it, and so on.

I listen to metal, heavy, hip hop, electronic, punk, country, rock and more. I can't say any music is bad.

I am personally a fan of the track Flat Earth Society by the heavy metal group Bad Religion, because it is catchy and mentions an institution in which my membership of which I take pride.

If any Flat Earther knows what metal is, it's James.  And if he says Bad Religion is metal, then they are metal.
