How does one define "Real Music?"

First of all, some people need to realize not everybody is an amazing guitarist such as Jimmy Page, neither a master of flugelhorn as Chuck Mangione. Second of all, there is no such thing as "music being dead" or "mainstream has taken over." Take for example, one decides to listen to a Megadeth album and then decides to insert a Black Eyed Peas CD just to rant on about how bad it is. Is that necessary or just out of plain stupidity?

This post does not only apply to Metalheads or the Metal Militia alone. It goes to all fans of any kind of music. Even to the Justin Bieber fans who think so high of him, I would like to express my opinion on what music can be.

I would like to say that there can never be a perfect genre, furthermore, there is no perfect song. John Lennon, one of the greatest musicians ever, had said "My defenses were so great. The cocky rock and roll hero who knows all the answers was actually a terrified guy who didn't know how to cry. Simple."

Not everybody will think one genre is the best. Of this time, pop and hip-hop seem to be the most popular right now. It had brought the idea to many music fans from before that jazz, rock, and blues are all dead. Honestly, it's totally not true AT ALL.

Many close-minded rockers must keep in mind many of the best rock bands had been born in the 90's. My favorite being the Foo Fighters, Alice in Chains, Breaking Benjamin, and for mainstream fans, Green Day. These bands are still very popular today, and they don't have to be on the radio. As long as people still listen to rock, it will NEVER die.

Music fans who enjoy hip-hop and rap shouldn't be attacking or be attacked by any other genre of music. While I do agree with most metalheads on them saying "rap requires no talent" or "rappers don't use any instruments," many don't seem to listen to the real hip-hop which does have more meaning in their lyrics. Lil Wayne, Soulja Boy, and 50 Cent are all very popular mainstream rappers. But what are a majority of their songs? Sex, money, drugs, is what they noremally sing about.

The stereotype that "only black people listen to rap" is also very stupid and narrow-minded. Not all rap is the same, and not every rap song will have derogative lyrics. 2Pac, Eminem, Biggie Smalls, and Nas each have a true meaning in each of their songs. Their voices and rhythm also prove to have more talent than any other rapper who ever lived.

As for elitists of the pop genre, the same goes for pop just like my point for rap and hip-hop. Popularity will come and go for many very popular pop artists such as Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, and Justin Bieber, and country singers like Taylor Swift. Their voices may not be the best out there but people will like them, and we cannot help that. Justin Bieber may be the most overrated artist right now, but all one can do is just not to listen to it.

Pop from the 90's and 80's was much better, I can say. Michael Jackson, the Backstreet Boys, Madonna, and the Bee Gees all had their moments in music. The genre, pop, can define "popularity." Popularity comes and goes, and it all depends whether one will listen to it or not.


In conclusion. Ask yourself, what can we do about it? Rap fans can say it should be the only genre. Metalheads can be at war with any genre other than rock. And the same can happen with millions of other elitists of music.

"Good music" comes from inside you. It's your taste in music, and nobody else's. There will be people who love your taste in music, and others will not take yours as greatly. If anybody disses your taste in music, don't fight back and claim yours is better. Be the better person, and avoid war with the genres you do not enjoy as much as your favorite.

Metal Militia and 4Chan Fail on sending Bieber to North Korea

Well, I have short news for you today. But according to this video (posted later in this post) it's revealed that the Metal Militia and the 4Chan hackers have failed insending Justin Bieber to North Korea. It appears now that the power of the Metal Militia are getting weaker, due to the lack of attackers on Lady Gaga's video. But yet they still plan on taking some future artists, such as Miley Cyrus, Eminem, or the Jonas Brothers.

They don't appear to be an enormous troll threat right now. Though 4Chan yet has the power from its thousands of hackers, but lately I haven't seen any major attack on mainstream music since the Justin Bieber poll became rigged.

The following video explains the failure of the Metalheads' threat to send him to North Korea.

Metal Militia now aims for Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance"

The 10-year olds of the nationwide Metalhead alliance have now selected Lady Gaga as their next victim. Now that they've succeeded in controlling Justin Bieber's "Baby" and practically his VEVO channel, the Metal Militia had just decided to expand their territory on Youtube.

The following comment was made on several rock videos, including Metallica, Megadeth, and AC/DC:

The Metal Militia will be attacking Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" video
on 9th of July... Remember to dislike, put a comment and flag .
We need your help to destroy this modern autotune music that
has ruled the world. Copy paste this comment on every good music
video such as: Metallica, Tool, AC/DC, Rolling Stones, Slipknot, Megadeth,
Guns n' Roses, etc.
Thumbs up this comment
This is coming from directly from MM offficial's leader"

Expect a similar attack just like Justin Bieber's. 4Chan will probably try to hack Youtube again, but in the meantime the fans must stay on their feet. Seriously, when will they understand that "good music" is not just heavy metal?

But honestly, who know who will be the next victim after Lady Gaga? Eminem? Miley Cyrus? Nickelback (the only rock band most Metalheads don't like?) Katy Perry? The Black-Eyed Peas?

Stay tuned for more info.

4Chan Users attempt to send Bieber to North Korea.

Well, then again I will say I AM NOT A FAN OF JUSTIN BIEBER. Neither do I think he is very talented compared to others of today's mainstream. I am a straight male, too, but I'm only in Bieber's defense because I made this blog dedicated to saving mainstream music, of which some I really enjoy. So please don't get the wrong idea.

But anyways, Justin Bieber had recently made an official poll of where to send him on his upcoming World Tour. However, for some reason the top on the list was North Korea. Fans of him questioned this, and thought "Just how many haters does it take to screw up Bieber?"

Except no, this wasn't just the work of the thousands of Bieber haters. The hackers and little kids of 4Chan had hacked this poll giving Bieber 659141 on North Korea. I wouldn't take this prank funny, it's literally gone too far. North Korea is perhaps the last place in the world to be, there's a chance Bieber will be stranded there forever and be forced to hard labor, even death if he doesn't please the fans of the communist nation.

The little kids of 4Chan, as always, are probably jealous of Bieber's fame and "good looks." Though I honestly don't care about what he has, they could've sent him into a death trap by now. It's unconfirmed though whether he will be heading to North Korea or not. He's yet to give out word on his feelings towards this upcoming tour.

Well, this is all I have for now. Stay tuned for any more news by me.

Metalheads Corrupt Justin Bieber's "Baby" Video

Alright, I will tell you one thing. I am not a Justin Bieber fan, in fact, I HATE Justin Bieber with a passion. I do not really believe Bieber is very talented and neither do I think he's good looking. But ever since I realized a massive group of jerks had put too much power into one video, I really wanted to say something to them. This is how I'll do it.

Beginning July 4th at about 12:00 AM, thousands of angry metal and rock fans have begun an ultimate troll attack on the "Justin Bieber - Baby ft. Ludacris" video. Though you can tell by the comments, I will tell you that they said one of the most hateful things about him. But that's not all there is to it.

The following message was sent in hundreds of music videos by thousands of Metalheads:

"The metal militia will be attacking Justin Bieber's video ON YOUTUBE (justin bieber baby ft. ludacris) on the FOURTH OF JULY Assemble all fans of good music in every genre! (Jazz, Metal, Classical, Classic Rock etc.) On said date leave a comment giving your thoughts on JB, close the comment with "-MM" (For metal militia). Copy and paste this comment to all the good band videos!"

After a few weeks of preparation the attack commenced. Trolling comments on Bieber's VEVO channel and every video on it brought huge success to the Metal Militia. But when I say corrupt, I don't just mean extreme trolling...

At about 7 AM, Metalheads from the website 4Chan used a specific script on Bieber's video to begin with. Random pop-ups with innapropriate messages and hateful insults appeared in these pop-ups. This "script virus" had infected many other videos in the process. I guess some 4Chan users took advantage of the script.

About this blog.

Before anybody yells it out. We are not a hate group towards Heavy Metal in any way. Our goal is to stand up to these trolls who claim Heavy Metal is the best genre ever and make them realize everybody has their own tastes in music.

First off, you need to know about me. I'm a fan of every genre of any kind of music. My favorite being Heavy Metal rock, YES I WILL ADMIT IT. But I also enjoy hip-hop, pop, Latin, and disco, too. From Mariah Carey to Linkin Park. From Jay-Z to Slipknot. You name it, I'm more than willing to give it a chance. I find any music to be enjoyable as long as it soothes my ears.

However, though I happen to love metal, I also happen to realize the number of Metalheads have been conquering every other genre of music. I'm no Metalhead, yet I still find pleasure in every form of rock. But apparantly the Metalheads have now unleashed a full blown attack on many Youtube videos. The targeted one right now is Justin Bieber, but now there've been even more threats on that video of the Metalheads taking over Lady Gaga's video!

This blog is dedicated to all of those who enjoy genres other than rock. Of course you're welcome here if you're a fan of rock but is not a jerk like most Metalheads. But our purpose is to stand against, not really to stop, the thousands of trolls who keep claiming Heavy Metal should be the only genre!
