Are you a "true" Metalhead? Well according to the latest update on this site, you're not one unless you have "The Power Viking Spatula From Hell" and "King Sven's Royal Devil Horns Shower Cap". Take a look at some of the crazy "how to be a metalhead" pics too.

I'm still trying to find a band that belongs to the "Swedish Chef Metal" genre that they speak of.

BORK BORK BORK!

If I read Fargo Rock City and knew all the lyrics to Motley Crue's 'Shout at the Devil' can I be metal? Or am I hopelessly doomed to be a poser?

Fine, witchstone, I was trying in vain to come off all hard and down with the Ratt N' Roll, when, in fact, I own only two albums, and they're both Stryper.

Why must you shame me so?

Hmmm, I think a part of being "metal" is incorrect spelling though. I mean, just look at the hate mail that was sent in to that site from some of the metal fanatics.

So dong, for spelling that guy's name wrong, you're EXTRA metal in my book.

A related heavy-metal article from The Stranger in Seattle:

It's difficult enough being a metal-loving miscreant in this
town without having to compete with an Elvis Costello clone
for a ticket to see Motörhead.

Aren't those Norwegian Black Metal guys in the "how to be a metal head" section of the site? I may be wrong, but that's what some of them look like to me.
