I agree that music is entirely ruled by opinion, but no one is ever willing to talk about why band x is better than band y. It always ends with someone saying "ITS JUST OPINION" then it's over.

I think healthy debate is a GREAT thing, but ultimately you just have to submit to the fact that some people have considerably different tastes or opinions and mutual ground can never be reached. I have musical debates with people who are similarly-minded, but the less common ground we have, the less it's worth it. Eventually people just have barriers and tastes that can't be crossed and can't be explained. You can argue all day until you're blue in the face, but in those situations there's no point.

also, music is subjective. There are no facts in music (relating to whether one band is better than another, that is)
I hate it when people do that. one person i know who i would tell my thoughts on music to when ever he disagrees with me would laugh or make it sound like his way of thinking is the only way of thinking and all who disagree are wrong. it got to the point where i just stopped telling him my opinon for a while.

Hm, well one thing I have noticed is that MANY metal fans also play instruments, unlike some other genres. Lot's of metal fans write music, and have experience in making music (whether it is pro exp or bedroom exp). I think that's a reason why many metal fans will argue, because they know what they are talking about and what it is like to make music.

I wrote a paper last year in English arguing why Slayer is the most influential metal band of all time.
