None at all. A lot of the riffs, licks and solos are legitimately awesomeness.

But... I guess some of the dances are absolutely, hilariously ridiculous (doki doki morning I'm looking at you - the spinning around bit, the running robot thing, the hand on head and one on the hip move WTFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF!). Haha, so maybe a little bit.

You shouldn't feel guilty. Don't be afraid to like what you like!

And oh man, Baby Metal is sick. Didn't think I'd ever hear/see a band/idol group quite like this.

I don't remember how I ran across them exactly, probably someone posting something on Twitter. Metal was the first genre of music I ever fell in love with, and it remains very near and dear to me, so, at first I reacted in the way one would expect. I dismissed it as an embarrassment to Metal music, and I thought to myself "Japanese Idol Groups should NOT be poking around in metal. I AM SO ANGRY. DEATH TO BABYMETAL!!!". Pretty much the expected reaction, right? Once I cooled off, and forgot about them for a while the inner nerd in me kept me curious enough to check them out again when they popped up on some YouTube thing, and I... I... I can't help it. It's TOO cute. God help me they're adorable. So, i'm kinda hooked on them now, and it actually kinda warms my heart when I see the reactions of other "True" Metal heads out there accepting it too. But don't tell anyone that, because, you know, we're metal heads and we don't have hearts. Death & destruction. All that.

I'm gonna go ahead and say this even though a bunch of people already said it. You should never be ashamed to like anything when it comes to music. Who cares what people think?

Why be guilty? It's fun! I can think of much worse things to feel guilty about.

This is what happens when Babymetal grows up...

If you feel guilty... I question why you feel guilty.

Ehh?! Well that's what happens when you only watch 15 seconds of a video.
I feel kind of bad now actually because....

Found a Babymetal ripoff called Deathrabbits: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_-okRVwEvp0



What do you guys think?

It's a fail in my opinion, just really boring, not fun and generic riffs. I like the rabbits though.

Guilty at first. I was appalled and then I realized I was appalled at myself for thinking it's not that bad.

Then I felt the metal gods will frown upon me until I found one of my idols with them:



Now I don't feel guilty. I just feel my icy heart melt whenever I listen to them. <3

Good ol' Kirk .

I really love Metal, Metalcore and Hardcore. It's my favourite genre of music and it always will be, I just gave this a listen and actually really enjoyed it, had a bit of a laugh as well. Don't feel guilty! This is the s***!
