No, I don't think anybody is wrong here. It could be how I worded it. What I meant by stereotypical, are the metal fans (or fans of music in general) who hear or read a label applied to a band and then will automatically put them down. People who actually give said band a listen, despite how others have labelled them, are what I consider openminded. It doesn't matter if you end up liking the band or not, but just giving them one chance, a personal preference to base your opinion on, in other words not jumping on the bandwagon.
Reflecting on my earlier post maybe "closeminded" would be a better word than stereotypical? Not singling anybody out, I've just noticed that almost every time I have posted a concert review here, more people had an issue with the band I posted, than not.
