at my school it seems that the faculty are in denial that rock/metal even exist, and only listen to the rap persuasion. i am kind of annoyed that at dances and party (the few we have) that the school throws that all they will play is soulja boy, and the mainstream rap artists. while all of the metal lovers will be in the back trying to ignore the music

Wow, really? Because most adults, if anything, do not consider rap to even be music. And by adults, I mean people over the age of thirty-five, not some twenty year old. Personally, I do not consider rap to be music either, since it takes no vocal talent and most of the rappers have no instrumental talent either.

well what im saying is that they are not considering to play music that everyone likes, not just the one that one group of people likes

I guess you have a point, but it would not really seem like a friendly school party with some blaring metal-head music in the background. Might be alright at a concert where everyone likes that sort of music, but not at a school event.

And I doubt the school would seem friendly if rap was blaring.

You could organize a petition for the school to play metal, the faculty would probably listen if you showed them that a great deal of students wanted the school to diversify the music it plays at it's sanctioned events

that may be true lthingar, thing is when i would submit a prefered song, not even metal, even classics like welcome to the jungle, were not gonna take it, and back in black were rejected, and even when i submitted preferals for popular stuff like fall out boy (i hate them, too emo) would get rejected, one time they played the barbie song when i had prefered freebird

Haha yeah not like rap is a friendly sort of music either, but I was just saying metal is probably less friendly. But Ithingar is right, if you had a petition the school would probably concur.

They... rejected freebird? Those b-astards, no offense. Seriously, they rejected all those songs? I guess you do have a strange faculty there, at least music-preference wise. But still, if you got a bundle of people to agree with you, then maybe the school will listen.
