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.
So in other words, rather than look at the facts and realize you mis-spoke, you would rather make a post with the sheer intention of getting a rise out people. Not very mature.

You could say the exact same thing about fans of jazz, country, hip-hop, classical, and really any genre of music. Hard core fans of any genre take their music seriously.

Click on the link provided and you can see the entire list. I didn't think it was necessary to cut and paste the entire document.
