Am I ignorant? Am I narrow-minded? Am I pompous? Sure, if that's what you call a man who knows what he god damn wants. God forbid. I should be more like you right? A free-loving douche fairy who flies by the seat of his pants and would blow a dude just to try it. Go ahead, suck off your buddy. Or aren't you open-minded?
I tried music that wasn't pure, true, unadulterated heavy metal once. Sucks. All of it. I'm sorry if the metal genre is just better than everything else out there, and for whatever reason, that's a fact that you can't handle. Getting on my case or blaming me for that, is like blaming me directly for the sky going black at night. It's just out of my hands. Of course, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, right? Except the opinion I'm entitled to is the correct one, whereas your preference is wrong. When somebody says that people are "entitled to their opinions", what they're really saying, is that once in a while, everybody is allowed to make mistakes. Having a positive attitude towards a band like Bring Me the Horizon is a mistake.
We're seeing a time where the new age, progressive, liberal, lovey-dovey term for "metalhead" has become "somebody who mostly listens to metal". Way to flutter around your definitive taste like a dainty butterfly, you queef. "Mostly"? What else is there for you to listen to? Do you just get so tired of listening to the best music on the planet that you need to dip your toes into something that sucks every now and again? I don't see the motivation. I don't see why you have to go out of your way to let people know you're so open to everything. I can only blame it on every young person in this day and age being raised in an environment of tolerance and acceptance. The self-esteem movement is creating generations of limp, complacent weaklings who are fed garbage like how "everybody is special". Nobody is special. You have to make yourself special. Until then, you're just another oxygen-wasting asshole filling your face and filling your gas tank.
Have you ever been in a conversation with someone, and when the topic of music arises, they say something along the lines of "I listen to all types of music"? Horse shit. 10 times out of 10, that usually means you're dumb enough to like everything you hear on the car radio. These are the worst kinds of people. Yeah, that's right, worse than racists. At least racists know how to be passionate about something. So unless you got a playlist with Finntroll, John Mayer, Ludacris, Aretha Franklin, Ke$ha, Charlie Daniels, Pavarotti, Pig Destroyer, Beethoven, and Jefree Star, (+Yanni, Kenny G, and Barry Manilow - Tyranneous) playing in that order, you're full of shit.
It's not like the world of metal doesn't have enough music for you: Death metal, speed metal, power metal, black metal, thrash metal, folk metal, doom metal, the sub genres go on. The metal genre is not only the greatest, it is also the most versatile. Power metal and death metal are two completely different types of music, but share key similarities that make them actually enjoyable to listen to, as opposed to unmetal music, which is all garbage. Every mood you could be in, there is a metal song to match it: When I'm angry, I listen to metal. When I'm furious, I listen to metal. When I'm enraged, I listen to metal. When I'm irate, I listen to metal. You get the picture. There's no need to ever listen to anything else. An open mind is an excuse to be false.
To ensure that you only listen to music that is acceptably metal, you need to cut yourself off from all outside influences that could lead you down the stray path. Does your girlfriend not like/listen to metal? Break up with her. There shouldn't have even been a second date the moment she named a musical act that was anything except a metal band. Unacceptable. Do you have friends, acquaintances, coworkers who listen to other types of music? Make fun of them for it until it's impossible to hang out with you. The moment they mention anything without shredding guitar solos, start forcibly laughing really hard and scoff at them. Don't make compromises. Your opinion in music is deadly serious, and the moment you start being friendly with the false, you are a friend to my enemy. The friend to my enemy will always be my enemy, and all my enemies are poseurs.
