I never said I was better than anybody, I think I'm far from that. I'm a pretty insecure person with a lot of issues, which all people have (issues I mean). I just said that some metal fans aren't openminded (which doesn't mean liking a band, it just means even if you read or hear a label applied to a band, still not being willing to give them one chance). Really, should this be a surprise to anyone? I'm just stating a fact.

When I think of "stereotypical" metalheads, I think of the dudes who are all about Five Finger Death Punch, Pantera and Lamb of God and all the more "mainstream" type things. I dunno, maybe I'm wrong.

Yeah, I would think that's the idea of the typical metalhead.

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.

I guess I just thought that I was doing a service by posting the missing tour and that out of 3,500+ members here, that at least one might be a Hollywood Undead fan and possibly not know about the tour.

And for the people saying that I think I'm better than everyone else, maybe consider the possibility that you're reading into this too deeply?

Look, I'm an honest person, too honest sometimes. And I'm the kind of person that theoretically if I thought I was better than anybody, I would say it directly, in black and white. I don't waste time dropping hints, or implying something. It doesn't mean I'm always right (far from it), I just don't personally see any point in beating around the bush.
