I hate people who like a band that is "fake" hipster metal (or even real metal!) but swear up and down that they hate metal and shit like that.

I have friend and her brother is pretty cool. I got him interested in Boris and he's a huge Boris fan. Now, some of you may not agree, but I think Boris is metal. But this kid, he says "oh, I'm just gonna wait outside until Boris comes on" so he misses Torche and Lair of the Minotaur. Come the fuck on! I can't wait for the pit that will happen during LotM and see some hipsters get their shit ruined because they don't want to spill their coffee.

Secondly: fuck The Sword. They are not real metal. They have plagiarized shit and are a knock-off of every single good stoner metal band. They are jokes and they've just taken the joke too far. It's just a band for latte-drinking hipsters wrapped in scarves and wearing girl jeans to think that they're cool. "huhuhu, i like the sword, i'm gonna go see them and throw up them DEVIL HORNS huhuhu irony is hilarious" THE WHOLE FUCKING CULTURE OF SCENE/HIPSTER KIDS IS BASED ON IRONY HOLY SHIT *EXPLODES*

Bands who are not metal:
The Sword
Genghis Tron
Suicide Silence
Job For A Cowboy
The Dillinger Escape Plan
Between The Buried And Me

You're mostly right, but Genghis Tron and Between the Buried and Me are both incredible bands, "metal cred" notwithstanding. I know that you know as well as anyone that you should listen to music that you think sounds good, not base your judgment of it on what style it professes to be. Sure, Genghis Tron are more of an electronica-grind band than a bonafide metal band, but their new album is one of the best things I've heard this year. I'll judge it for what it sounds like.

I understand what you mean, but I just hate their fans and shit who think they're artsy and whatever for listening to them but not admitting that they like metal. *explodes again*

Fair enough. Look no further than Mastodon for a great metal band with fans who want no part in metal, haha.

I like The Sword, without irony. They arent my favorite band, but they arent bad. Given that there are no Sword fans in my area, I had no idea that ironic hipsters had adopted them as their 'thing.' That kinda sucks.

But, yeah, the kids in my area love JFAC and Suicide Silence....suck a dick, please.

Well I mean you can only take that stance so far, if you closed your eyes and listened to The Sword and then listened to Valkyrie or something you might not even hear a big difference. For me, I just don't listen to The Sword because their music doesn't stick with me for whatever reason. It isn't bad by any means, and I could care less who their fans are, but with both albums I really liked them the first couple listens then they died off for me and now neither get any rotation. I used to listen to The Dillinger Escape Plan and Between The Buried and Me when I went through a little bit of 'that' style phase, but I'm not really into it anymore, again not because I don't like either band (I think they're both great) but just cuz I don't feel compelled to listen to it. That might change, who knows. As far as those other bands, yeah they suck

I agree on every point. Boris is one of my favorite bands, and I hate the whole "hipster approved" aspect. Honestly, if you can claim to like Boris, but not certain other metal bands because you "don't like metal" you can fuck right off. I completely fucking hate when people like music just to be ironic. Especially coming from people who already have an incredibly poor understanding of irony. All I can say is fuck hipsters. Hard and anally.

You don't think Job for a Cowboy is not metal?
That's shocking! (for me at least)
