Top 5 Worst People at a Heavy Metal Show

2. Long Hair, No Care
Head-banging is great. The metal videos of yore would be nothing without a sea of head banging miscreants attempting to break their own necks to sound, and long hair is a necessity for proper head-banging. That said, if you haven't cut your hair since the members of Metallica cut theirs in 1996, make sure you're not slapping your fellow fan in the face with that shit. I don't want to eat your weave. No one does. There's that forward 'bang move that Cliff Burton used to do -- maybe go with that.

3. Too Drunk to Mosh
This is a character found at shows in every genre, but in the context of a metal show, can become an absolute nightmare. If you drank yourself into a walking coma, you have no business in the middle of a horde of crazed metal fans. Take your sloppy ass outside and know the limit before you make yourself a burden to your fellow fans. Because you will get clocked in the head by a stray mosh assault, and then the show'll have to be stopped for security to extract you from the middle of the crowd and wipe the drool from your chin.
