Lamest shit ever. That shit doesn't mean metal. Throw a fist not your faggot pinky and index finger. The Texas longhorn fans were doing that long before you decided that it meant devil horns. Fuckin idiots. Piss off.

Old news. Rich Horror had a Myspace page about throwing the horns being gay.

Sounds legit. My new band isn't gonna have Facebook. We'll just spam phantom MySpace pages and be forever underground.

Disagreed. Not gonna change something I've done longer than some of you have been alive to be fashionable. Sounds like the antithesis of metal, to be honest.

It's overdone, yes, but shouldn't die. It has become synonymous with metal for quite sometime. It had other uses before the Texas Longhorns, as well.
Quite frankly I'm more for the elimination of hipsters than the flashing of a sign.

Probably this. I'm not old enough to be getting old though. Shit.

Disagreed with Arrow that not throwing them is fashionable. I consider it more fashionable that people throw them just because other people are throwing them.

I know the horns have become synonymous with metal. I guess I'm just not a hand signal guy anymore, and no I'm not racist against the deaf. The farthest I'll go is pumping my fist.

I'd rather get rid of backwards hats before I'd get rid of hipsters before I'd get rid of the horns.

Don't backtrack Burnsy. Throwing the horns is poser bullshit.

It can be strewn that way, as it's easy to do and anyone can do it. If anything, the poser bullshit is when they do it with the thumb out.

Hahaha I was thinking that during agalloch on Saturday, Jim .
Remembering you yelling at everyone to stop clapping and them listening. After the show, a buddy of mine that I went to the show with goes, "I was feeling the music, having a great time, the crowd starts clapping so I start clapping, then some asshole off to the side yells, 'STOP CLAPPING!'"

Worse than all of these things is when people headbang from the waist

Ah thank you, I meant to include that mannerism in the OP. That and the shreddy hands. Curly hands is okay I guess but shreddy hands are right the fuck out.

what are these things? I'm sure I've seen them, I just don't know what terms are used for them. Is curly hands like when you make the "come here" finger gesture with all fingers in quick succession?

Bending down to windmill is one thing and I don't care as long as your hair stays out of my drink but planting your feet and rocketing your entire upper body fore and aft is so awkward

I've only seen women doing this, I don't understand it

I must be a girl. I full body headbang all goddamn day. I guess I don't understand how you'd headbang all rigid and only using the neck.

The amount of body used in the headbang maneuver is proportionate to the tempo and gravity of the riffage.

Pretty sure changing the way you do things based on popularity, how common it is, or whether or not it's "played out" is precisely the meaning of "fashionable".

I didn't say anything about it being fashionable or unfashionable - you did.

Pretty sure your first post in this thread said not throwing the horns is fashionable. I argue that because the horns are the customary norm, throwing them is fashionable. Deciding that it is a lame empty gesture has nothing to do with speaking to the issue of popularity.
