Now before you say "I know tons!" think to yourself, are these people really metalheads? Typically, these "metalheads" are usually just mallcore/hardcore kids who like to call themselves metalheads. Now, most mallcore/hardcore kids are assholes, this is because they think being dicks makes them cool and "metal" this couldn't be further than the truth. Also, they're so mad because they have to listen to metalcore all of the time.
Now to the point, every metalhead i've ever met is/was a nice person. My explanation is that we're a laid back kind of people, we don't waste our time trying to be like everyone else. Take this situation.
Top 40 Zombie #1: "I really like (insert random band/rapper here)"
Top 40 Zombie #2: "I don't like him/her/them"
Top 40 Zombie #1: "Yeah, me neither"
(and yes i have seen this happen before) What you have just seen is an example of someone changing their musical preference because it would appeal more to someone else. Now, take this situation
Metalhead #1: "I really love (insert band here)"
Metalhead #2: "Eh, i don't really like them"
Metalhead #1: "Ok then"
One thing that a lot of people don't get about metal is that if you like metal, that doesn't mean you like every metal band and/or sub genre. Now, i present yet another situation
Mallcore kid #1: "(insert band name here) is the best band ever."
Mallcore kid #2" "they fucking suck"
Mallcore kid #1 "fuck you asshole" (fight breaks out, mallcore kid 2 kicks the shit out of mallcore kid 1, now mallcore kid 1 dislikes the band that he said he loved)
Metalheads also seem to share many other things in common besides music. We usually enjoy similar kinds of humor, movies, books etc. Also, you could meet a stranger who loves metal and start talking to him like he's your long lost friend. Like a week ago, i was in the hall with my friend after first period, just standing there. All of a sudden a guy notices my necrophagist shirt and walks up to me. Now, i have never seen this person before, nor has he seen me, but we start talking about technical death metal, he tells me about a few good bands and walks away. I ran into him again yesterday and we started discussing getting metal bonors (hypothetical erections caused by awesome songs) and that really made my day.
The only exception to the nice metalhead rule is when someone says their favorite metal band is either a mallcore/nu-metal/ or hard rock band. This kind of shit drives us nuts. also, when someone makes fun of metal. "It's just noise" "so you like that stuff that goes BLARGARGARGGGG?" or they throw you the devil horns with the thumb out, but thats your fault, not ours.
