About the only sub-genre of metal that doesn't take itself seriously is Butt Rock. Unless there's Vikingcore Black Doom Foul Odor Butt Rock. You can tell someone take metal too seriously when they start excluding Butt Rock and other established genres from the metal family tree.
I've never heard of butt rock D:
Sounds entertaining to say the least.

I know of Viking and Pirate metal. Pirate metal is particularly funny vocal wise :P

I think its funniest when bands try and name things as disgusting as possible.
Things like "Aesthetic Upholstery of Molested Flesh" or "Uterovaginal Insertion of Extirpated Anomalies"
Keep it in the pocket.
