Five Beta Male Metal Songs

…And five songs to listen to instead.

When you think of metal, images of hardcore, very alpha male guys come to mind. However don’t let their appearances fool you, they are often full of very beta male messages. Just because the music is awesome doesn’t mean it is teaching a positive building lesson on how a male should act. We are all guilty of it. Sometimes you just like the how aggressive a song sounds, great drums, great guitar, normally awesome band. But then they release a diarrhea sandwich and expect you to eat it. No thank you. All of these bands I enjoy, and the music kicks ass in all of them, but the beta male lyrics are not the right message. Here are a few examples of aggressive, kick ass songs with shitty beta behavior lyrics.

All That Remains

What If I Was Nothing – All That Remains

“What if I was nothing? What if this is true?
What if I was nothing, girl, nothing without you
So what if I was angry, what did you think I’d do?
I told you that I love you, girl, I’m nothing without you”

Seriously? No girl is attracted by desperation and he reeks of it here.

As an alternative listen to

This Calling – All That Remains

“My strength’s been tested; I wear the scars that prove
Still, I believe that this calling will see me through
Still, I believe this calling will see me through”

Fuck yes. Been battle tested and now on the other side. Great message.


The Wretchedness Inside – Trivium

“This blood I bleed, I bleed for you
I paint the walls with my misery
This blood I bleed, I bleed for me
I cannot live if I can’t breathe”

Toxic relationships are just toxic. Get the fuck out of there, don’t wallow in it.

As an alternative listen to

Until the World Goes Cold – Trivium

“Until the world goes cold
This battle’s burned all that I’ve known
Until the world goes cold
Nothing will keep me from this throne, I’ll fight
Until the world goes cold”

Great message, no matter the obstacles faced. I’ll fight, “until the word goes gold”

Bullet For My Valentine

Your Betrayal – Bullet For My Valentine

“I was told to stay away
Those two words I can’t obey
Pay the price for your betrayal
Your betrayal, your betrayal!”

She betrayed you and then told you to stay away? Done and done.  Those two words you can’t obey? Lame.

As an alternative listen to

You Want a Battle – Bullet For My Valentine

“Down eyes of shame
Made to feel dead again
Your words cut deep
Your lies are fueled by your need for deceit
Too scared to speak
You’re only alive when you torture the weak
Now hear me roar

I will not take this anymore
These words will never be ignored
You want a battle
Here’s a war “

Fuck me? Fuck me?  No, Fuck you!! You want a battle? Here’s a war!

Breaking Benjamin

The Diary of Jane – Breaking Benjamin

“Try to find out what makes you tick
As I lie down, sore and sick
Do you like that, do you like that?
There’s a fine line between love and hate
And I don’t mind, just let me say
That I like that, I like that”

What can I do to get her to like me? How can I get into her diary? I have a very simple phrase for that, Attraction isn’t negotiated.

As an alternative listen to

Feed the Wolf – Breaking Benjamin

“Carry me through this world alive
I feel no more this suffering
Bury me in this cold light
I feed the wolf and shed my skin”

Great message, I shed my skin – moving on, being reborn.

Killswitch Engage

My Curse – Killswitch Engage

“This is my curse (the longing)
This is my curse (time)
This is my curse (the yearning)
This is my curse

There is love burning to find you
Will you wait for me?
Will you be there?”

This is a sentiment that we can all relate to when someone leaves you. HOWEVER, you gotta pick yourself up and not be trampled on, you are not hopelessly waiting for her to grace you with her presence again.

As an alternative listen to

A Bid Farewell – Killswitch Engage

“Now your heart beats
Black with deception
You have been forsaken
Leave behind (I will)
All reminders of you
Of you”

This is more like it, if they are gone, they are dead to you.
