The brightest people i know so far dont really listen to much music at all (which is pretty weird in my opinion anyway, but that's a different story).But it's a nice way for us metalheads to explain to people why we listen to that: sorry, i'm just so fucking clever, that's why! :)
Well most of the time I see people (metalhead included) think like this:GENERIC METALHEAD = wasted asshole, vulgar but generally very nice dude to spend time withPROG METAL EXPERT = he knows everything in and about music, he's better than you in everything regarding music, he's so arrogant that you must supposedly listen only to what he suggests you, he's clever and smart, and nice, and he could spend the like of 3 hours talking about the new humbucker he's just installed over his brand new ESP LTD KJFDHSKGKL 2893848029309XXX219XX special edition.
especially, you are very bright, not afraid to say that the brightest one :)
Aside from that, this is also the truest thing:http://sphotos-e.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/319831_10200101066705344_737972583_n.jpg
