Benante thinks metalheads are not open-minded

Anthrax drummer and Lady Gaga fan Charlie Benante doesn’t have the nicest things to say about a metalhead’s ability to be open-minded about music.

This is what he said in a recent interview:

I think the metal scene struggles… how can I put this it without sounding bad- most true metal heads are not the most open minded people when it comes to music. They like what they like and they want that- and you have to deliver that. If you go a little left field, I don’t know man, that’s taking some chances there and you have to deliver. With this record, it is truly a heavy metal record. There’s no other influence on this record other than hard rock and heavy metal.

Huh? What is he on about. Metallica went through 30 genres and they never got any shit for it. [big ass rollin’ eyes here]

I guess he is right, it’s not like we’re the most open-minded people out there, is it? I hate almost every genre out there, and I dislike most rock subgenres.

Let’s face it, we suck. Fuck ourselves!
