Okay, that was stupid, but face it, there are a few metal "looks" that are going to classify you, and if you rebel against the stereotypes, you just might have to deal with the shit you get.

If you're not wearing a band or at least a black T-shirt (from the current show or not), then I'm going to assume that you're at your first show. If I come up to you and you don't know a damn thing about said T-shirt band's music, I am going to think you're a douchebag. To a lesser extent, if you have visible tattoos, I'm going to think you're more metal than I am (what I might think of your intelligence based on whatever said tat is is a different story). And, if you're either bald or have long hair, I'm also going to think that you're more metal than me.

That being said, I classify as few of the above, but I'm still more likely to think that the "Band shirted, tattooed, long-haired dude" is still more metal than the the opposite.

I wear a suit and tie to metal shows!

I have short hair, visible tattoos, and wear band shirts on ordinary days and wear football or white shirts to shows. Wearing band shirts does not hinder meeting people unless you act like a creeper. 80% of my friends dont listen to metal, but at a party i have a shirt you cant read with gore and make friends just fine.

that's true but most of the time if i see metalheads at a party they usually isolate themselves not talking to anyone besides themselves. but then again these are the skinny caucasian long brown haired metalheads i'm talking about.

Haha I totally went to Meshuggah and Cynic in a suit and a tie with a bunch of my friends and dubbed it Blacker than the Blackest tie. It was a super great idea on paper and seemed cool til I got in the pit a sweat my balls off, but whatever, it was totally the most metal moment of my life. Haha

Yea I know, thats why I said if they dont act like creeps. When I was in school most of the metalheads were dorky kids that didnt talk to anybody except each other so they didnt have many friends. They were pale and always wore black and just stared at everyone so they gave weird vibes. I wear band shirts and jeans and jordans on a typical day so it throws people for a loop.

T-Shirt Prices

Does anyone have an idea on how much T-Shirts were BTBAM, Devin Townsend, and Cynic.
