A pretty good take on most of the metal genres I can name. Which is your favorite? Which genres would you add/replace? And most important of all, which letter was funniest? :D



And obviously, this is a parody and tongue in cheek, so let's try not to get offended shall we?

I really like how the guy take the most stereotypes of metal movement and mixed 'em in one song, it's really a great thing! Made me laugh loud especially from F to L, I mean, Finnish Folk Metal, Hardcore Punk (though it's not a genre of metal), Grindcore and onward :D Power, Thrash and Viking are also sooo representing the true spirit of metal cliches!

I know it's supposed to be funny, but it just felt more cringe-worthy than anything.

Yeah, I think Finnish folk metal was where I really started to chuckle, too. The guy's facial expressions there are priceless. Industrial, Power and Viking were some of my other favorites, probably because I rather like those genres so the stereotypes were especially funny to me.

This guy has some diverse abilities, to do vocals and guitar in all those different styles. Although, I suspected he might be faking the guitar in the Neoclassical and Power ones. But I don't play guitar so I can't tell for sure.

I had to cringe a bit at the Rap metal one, but that also made it funny, in a way. It was so bad it was ridiculous.

That was actually pretty funny. Grindcore was the best.

The part I find funniest is that the transition between death metal and electro metal was one of, if not the smoothest transition in the video.

Unblack metal was the funniest, because that is funny in and of itself.
Woman metal was very accurate too, although it's more like the whole "female rock"-genre.
Well done idea wise and execution.

I had no idea what the hell he was going on about in Alternative Metal, but I enjoyed the rest. I got quite a chuckle at "Quiet Metal".

I felt these feels.

And I always feel bad when doom gets left out.

Yiddish Metal was my favourite. A Metal take on Hava Nagila was not expected.

Hmm..... no sludge metal. :thumbsdown: Cool video though. The guy seems to be talented and the lyrics are pretty funny at times. Grind has to be my favorite.

I thought quiet metal was funny. Too bad no doom metal.

Woman metal was simply taken from a Girlschool song. Are they all covers?

I thought several of them sounded familiar, but I couldn't quite place them. Power metal sounds like it could be a Stratovarius song? Symphonic metal sounds like a Nightwish song? But then again, those are kind of standard bands for those genres so it could be he's just trying to sound like them.

I wish I could understand the lyrics more and/or they were written out somewhere, cause yeah, they are pretty funny. "Industrial, from Germany..." "Jesus will save your soul.."

Jesus Metal should've been some uber cheesy over the top neoclassical symphonic power metal from somewhere in South America, or some type of Christian metalcore. Or a doom metal band. Honestly now, lets get our stereotypes correct.

And then, I think there was some hand movements being missed. 90% of your genre definition is based on how your vocalist moves his hands and holds is mike.

Hahaha, Yiddish metal.

I thought it had to be K.
Then came Q, U, Y, and Z.
My first assumption was way off.

That, or band hairstyles XD I know I'm in trouble if no one in a band photo has really long hair. ...I'm only half joking, too :P

This guy's haircut says alt rock, actually :/ Although, it is similar to the look of Arsis's frontman, so perhaps he just made an unfortunate fashion choice :P

Actually... There is this band called Gevolt, who sing in Jiddisch. They at least did some old classics like Tumbalalaika and others. It would not surprise me if they have their own take on Hava Nagila too.
I think they are worth the trouble to listen to (although it's pretty close to industrial metal). I had the pleasure of seeing them live once and it was indeed a pleasure not a pain.

the funniest part was imagining him and his fat girlfriend fucking after their weekley Friday night at Red Lobster, they're both burping greasy food into each others mouths and their bellies are making floppy smacking sounds.

He sounds like he could pull off being a rhythm guitar and vocals for a thrash band however.

Because that image and thought popped into my head while watching the video and it was the only laugh elicited from my person during the viewing duration of said video, sir.

Because making fun of people for something they may have little to no control over is very original and hilarious and takes an enormous amount of effort and wit. You should be thankful he even took the time out of his very busy internet forum browsing to momentarily grace you with his genius.
