You see in order to enjoy the themes of heavy metal you have to be the catharsis of what is punk and goth, and that is metal. You see, metal is made for people who enjoy violence, dragons, and stories of untold magic in their music. Punk has violence and Goth has magick, but when combined you get Heavy metal, which is who the music is made for, not anyone else.

well punk music does have the word punk in it wich dosent mean you have to be be punk to understand heavy metal rock music. so you see that you dont have to be punk or goth to listen to heavy metal rock music

I'm not sure how anyone can make a strong argument about this either way after more than one round, but here she goes!

You see, heavy metal rock was founded on the basis that only goth and punk people could listen to it. The holy and almighty god of rock hereby forth proclaimed in his 5th commandment of all that is metal to say that "only those who dress in the blackest of black clothes and have as many pieces of spiked jewelery attached to their bodies as they have fingers are the only ones truly deserving of heavy metal". As for punks an amendment was established for them as well.

so this as you see its just that you shouldnt judge people whether your a jock punk gothic etc. because if you judge somebody for what they are you mite get beat up or something
Daysuit

Pro

Judging anyone for any reason, right or wrong is protected speech, and even though it "mite" be a path to getting beat up, most adults do not beat each other up over what type of music they listen to. Adults typically beat each other up because they are too drunk or caught the man sleepin' with their woman. Honestly I don't think your question has stirred up any actual controversy except what I'm trying to make up.

You see, people need social labels in order for them to understand who they are, be they Emo, jock, goth, nerd, loser, or janitor. It's a societal need to know who someone is so you can stereotype them, and then make fun of them.

In conclusion cardboard houses are just for the homeless, golf is just for the rich, and heavy metal rock is for just goth or punks.

Punk, goth, and metal are three seperate forms of music and 3 seperate subcultures.

Didn't the devolopment of heavy metal predate that of either punk or goth?

In any case I listen to it and I'm certainly neither. Most metal, btw, does not have much "Magick."

Both of you seem to lack any remote amount of knowledge on the subject. Let alone an adequate amount to argue on it. Metal generally isn't the music for goths or punks. Of course there are exceptions and no type of music is exclusively for any certain type of person, but in the case of goths they're more typically associated with goth and industrial music than with metal. Punks are more closely associated with (duh) punk, ska, oi and hardcore.
