Respectfully, I'll respond so you think i'm not ignoring you.

For response sake, that's all I'll say.

How is metal a gateway to other music?

Answer: When I was 13 I almost exclusively listened to metal and then I realized that other music was worthwhile. I already loved The Cure but metal led me to punk and then to bands that were not either of those but still sort of heavy i.e. Jane's Addiction. Then I realized that I loved Violent Femmes and Public Enemy (who had worked with Anthrax) and then I liked Stone Roses and Ride and Sonic Youth and Pavement and then I realized that people who only liked metal were silly and unfashionable but I still liked metal. Your question seems pretty ignorant really. Where were you in the 80s and 90s?

Your answer could apply to any kind of music. But nothing really suggests metal being a gateway more than other genres of music.

As for where I was, in London most of the time.

That's virtually identical to me, I discovered metal, then punk then I went onto The Stooges, MC5, Iggy, New York Dolls before finding indie & dance music.

What are the chances that you actually dance?
