Metal 101- Drunk Shirtless Guy by LusoSkav Metal 101- Drunk Shirtless Guy by LusoSkav
I know i'm tip-toeing sort of avoiding doing more genre specific metalheads, but i'm working on it, scout's honor.

After a few years as a metalhead, and many, many metal shows attended, i couldn't help but to notice the diferent archetypes and demographics in the metalhead culture that i kept coming across.
And since i never saw any kind of descriptive charts that accurately portrayed the metal subculture i so dearly know and love, i decided to do it myself!

So, based on people that i know, people that i merely saw, often or not that often, and on blunt personal experience, i began thinking up of a few, and will sure remember a few more as i go along.

Also remember this is not meant to offend. It's all harmless satire, more often than not

So yes. Hope you enjoy Luso's Handy Guide to Metalheads

I fucking love these pictures. I play in a metal band in California, and a psychobilly jazz-punk band that verges on metal, so I encounter these people (not to claim not to be any of them, of course) on a regular basis. They're so aptly satirical. I commend thee on not only thy outlook on metalheads, but also your disposition away from douchebaggery and hipsterdom. Once more, fucking great job on these.

thank you kindly :):beer:
This is amazing! xD
Yep i see at least one these guys at a lot of gigs and metal club nights, some are major arseholes others are just awesome and fun
This guy is also known as "Shirtless White-Trash Guy"
I met my first one at a 5FDP concert not to long ago, it was kinda funny yet annoying. I was having a beer with some new friends I had made in line and he came stumbling over to us, first thing he does is he drops one of his beers on to my shoes, then proceeds to hug me and apologize. After hugging me he starts to pat me on the head (fairly hard) normally I wouldn't care but I had spent at least 15 minutes getting my hair into a mohawk, so I was a little ticked off.
I felt so bad for his girlfriend, about 10 minutes before the main band was supposed to come out on stage me and my friends went outside for a smoke and so did the drunk dude. He was so drunk that security asked him and his gf to leave, I could see the disappointment in her eyes as she walked away.

Sorry for the long winded story, I just felt that it should be shared.
P.S. I think these are very awesome :)
I remember him. From the last 24 concerts...

Any chance we could get to see stoner metal-heads soon?

This due seems ok so if I ever see one of these I know what to most likely expect. As long as he doesn't puke on me, grope me or hit on me(especially if I'm not single). No problem. Just one problem though: I can't drink yet :'(
