Most people really seem to be taken back by heavy and intense music with screams and complex musical patterns. All I simply ask is why? Even if it has a strong melody.

1. People don't like things they don't understand. Simple as that. Metal is rarely if ever played on the radio, it's gets zero respect at music awards shows, it is a very niche thing is today's society. It's a very uncommon music genre for people to hear unless you go out of your way for it.
2. It's hard to listen to. Most pop music has 2 core elements to them: repetition and simplicity. Most metal is severally lacking in those two aspects so for anyone who isn't used to listen to anything that isn't pop drivel, be it pop country, rap, rock, whatever, they find metal to difficult to listen to. You've probably heard it before.. "It's just a bunch of noise!" "How can you understand what's going on?" And I'm sure you know that trying to explain to them what's going on is like explaining the effects of western capitalism on 3rd world countries to a 5 years old haha0
