Metal Etiquette 101: The Jukebox


Metalheads are a unique bunch in that we take great pride in enjoying music that normal people consider abrasive. They may look down upon us, call us “weird” and our music “scary”; so let’s fix that. Welcome to Metal Etiquette 101. Today’s topic: The Jukebox.

As metalheads we have a couple of social responsibilities, and our primary one should be doing our best to extinguish the terrible music of the world. Think of a time one of your friends or relatives said “I pretty much listen to everything, but mainly country and hip-hop” or “Five Finger Death Punch and In This Moment are the heaviest bands I can get into” (I know you’re cringing inside just seeing those words, trust me it wasn’t easy to type either). Another responsibility we possess is to try to share our refined musical tastes with the rest of society. The problem is that our music — heavy metal and all variations thereof — is not very accessible at all. Like I said in the intro paragraph, it’s considered abrasive and scary to the casual listener, characteristics that greatly impede our cause. As much as we’d like to, we cannot introduce heavy metal to a normie with bands like Pissgrave or VI (even if your jukebox has those choices).

Let’s talk for a moment about the jukebox: a social tool utilized by bars all across the globe with the similar goal of promoting comfort, good times, and discussion among patrons. Old school jukeboxes may have a collection of 50 albums give or take, but the newer ones have Internet access and a very wide selection of songs (you’ll just have to pay a few more cents for them). It’s a tool that can bring people together or tear them apart, depending on the music emanating from its speakers — music chosen by the people in close proximity. What type of music do you typically hear from the jukebox? If the bars you attend are anything like the ones in St. Louis, you can plan on hearing tracks from popular bands such as Nickelback, Mumford and Sons, or… Kenney Chesney (that’s a person, right?) You can see the dilemma here.

There are three types of metalheads that I know about when it comes to playing the jukebox:

  • The “no f**ks given” user. When my friend Dave returns to our circle of friends after spending several dollars at the jukebox, I typically see a wide smile on his face while the jukebox blares a shredder from Coma of Souls by Kreator. Dave and the rest of us now have a short amount of time to jam solid tunes before the majority of the patrons start grumbling and the bartender has to make an executive decision to either A) turn the volume way down or B) activate the emergency “song skip” button to something more palatable to the people. Yes we got to hear a few minutes of some great tunes, but he is now a few dollars poorer and several eyes at the bar are glaring at us for disrupting the peace. But let’s say the local admins [the staff] allow some death metal or thrash, the rest of the folks in the bar may look at, and judge, a group of ugly guys with scary black t-shirts who are headbanging to Cannibal Corpse. Incorrect though they may be, they will most likely categorize us as unapproachable, unsociable, and generally mean folks. After all, rarely does a person get a second chance to make a first impression.
  • The troll. Some folks have been known to intentionally play that especially terrible Daughtry song (“I’m Comin’ Home”… but in yarl-speak) as a social experiment to see who takes a liking to it, and proceed to laugh at them behind their backs. This is a very entertaining role to play, but it doesn’t help “the cause” (of propagating heavy metal and the acceptance thereof). It anything, it definitely helps to highlight the most desperate souls in need of saving. Perhaps trolling is a useful move earlier in the night to locate those patrons before moving onto the next phase.
  • The diplomat. Here is where we can do our part to help the cause, first by ensuring that the jukebox has enough good music in its queue (to bump out any potential Uncle Kracker or Jimmy Buffet), and to help ease the common listener into something heavier. The user can pick some classic hard rock with heavy riffing or maybe some modern heavy metal that doesn’t employ screaming/harsh vocals.

I like to select tracks from Deep Purple, Clutch, or Van Halen; but NEVER one of the radio singles. My first go-to is always the following track by Queen because it’s catchy, relatively heavy, and it’s definitely not “We Are the Champions,” which is one of the worst songs I’ve ever heard by one of the best rock bands in existence. A casual listener may recognize Freddie Mercury’s voice or Brian May’s guitar work, without knowing that Queen was ever this good. He may think, “dang, this is heavy for Queen; perhaps it’s time to investigate their works beyond that horrid Greatest Hits disc I have at home.”

Hopefully you choose the “Diplomat” route when making your next visit to the area jukebox. The people do not want to hear “Acolytes” by Horrendous… yet. If we give them enough time they may be coerced into heavy metal; but they need to be eased into it just as we were many years ago. Start with the training wheels and understand that they will come off over time, even if it takes a decade. The common man is receptive to influence though he may not be aware, nor willing to admit it! Think of how easily people are influenced by the songs on the radio: does anyone like that “Rockstar” song? Really? REALLY? Or are they just institutionalized by top 20 radio into thinking that it’s good, by pure repetition?  I think we all know the answer.

(My favorite Van Halen song, because SCRIMM!!!)

Be mindful of your micro-actions and use them to help shape others around us. Even the smallest pebble will cause ripples in a pond, so start there. What type of jukebox user are you?  What songs do you gravitate towards? And most importantly, are you willing to do your part to help the cause? This has been our first lecture of Metal Etiquette 101.

    Jukeboxes are not too prevalent around my area anymore, not sure if that’s an Australia-wide phenomena though. Max? Ted? Ellipsis? et al…
    When they were available, I tended to be a mix of “The Diplomat” and a “No fucks given” type operator. Seldom would I find an “offensive” track anyway so I tended towards the former.

    Also, I can’t remember if I mentioned it in my review for VI but the riffs from 5:09 onwards in the track you embedded are guaranteed to cop the Lizard vote in any RoTW.

  • Nina Osegueda

    If I’m out with the guys, I’ll play a King Diamond / Priest / Dio marathon. In fact, I do that when I’m not with the guys.

    • Well, that’s a very definite position and I agree.

      This world needs more King Diamond/Judas Priest/Dio combo.

    • this is a correct answer.

    • Max

      I’ve noticed that Judas Priest is, in fact, a much better gateway metal band than has perhaps been officially been recognized.

      It’s good music for driving to, it’s good music for playing video games to (second only to Iron Maiden in that respect), and it fits into a few different “metal era-moods” as well. You can put on something like “Rocka Rolla Woman” or “Heading Out to the Highway” to please “classic rock”-listening ears, or you can jam one of the better songs from Turbo to please hair-metal devotees – or you can play something heavier/faster if you’re trying to convert someone whose appreciation of Metallica actually extends as far back as Master of Puppets or earlier.

      I have a self-compiled Priest compilation CD-R that I play in a variety of social and professional situations and I almost always get at least one person inquiring about it.

      • tigeraid

        “Heading Out to the Highway” is always my immediate go-to tune when someone says “eeeeh I don’t really like metal.” Like, FUCK YOU LISTEN TO THIS.

        • Max

          Exactly! Right up there with anything on British Steel.

  • Dubs

    They have one of them fancy jukeboxes at the shoddy bowling alley I like to visit. As far as I know, there isn’t a DJ control for the proprietors (or at least I’ve never seen them use it), but you can pay like a dollar extra to preempt another song choice (the preempted song still gets paid a bit later). My buddies and I used to load it up with like an hour of metal and chuckle as the good ol’ boys would force money into the machine to switch back to Garth.

  • First track I look for every single time

    • solid

    • killer song! however, the bartender just pressed skip because folks were complaining. press [Start] to try again

      • ME GORAK B.C.™

        GORAK PLAYS BEHEMOTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • reverse spectrum, full speed ahead

        • RT, i don’t know anyone who would hear this and go “GAH”.
          you have won!

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Tapir, maybe, but he wouldn’t be at a bar in the first place since he doesn’t drink.

          • he’d only be there to stab. (Tapir, where are you anyways?)

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            He was here Sunday. Probably just busy. I’ll toss him an email if he’s gone too long, just to check up on him.

  • I used to be a real drunken asshole when it came to the jukebox at bars. Now I just stay home and drink out of my Hellhammer coffee mug and listen to records instead. Like a smug son of a bitch.

    • yeah, venturing out with the normies can only be done in small doses.
      (i want that mug)

    • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

      You smugsumbitch

    • sweetooth0

      Beer way cheaper, music way better. I see nothing in the bar experience that is trumping these two things. Bars are only good for going to gigs, otherwise fuck that shit.

      • I couldn’t have said it any better.

      • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

        Eh, I met a good deal of my friends back home at the local dives in my neighborhood, and we still talk to this day. All depends on the bar, really, and the type of people there.

  • Drop $5 and put this on repeat. Slow dance with anyone within reach.

    • Eliza

      This was one of my favorite songs as a child.

    • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

      Meh, I’d rather toss on ‘Sex (I’m A….)’, ‘No More Words’, or ‘The Metro’. Berlin is some definite synthpop classics.

  • Eliza

    I’ve never seen a real jukebox in my entire life, lol!

    • Me neither, I don’t know what these gringos are talking about.


    • Warheart

      I saw one a time ago, in a cheap bar with lots of hobos, grumpy people and whores while I was trying to keep a low profile, fearing for my life and thinking “how the fuck did I end up here?”. Never Again.


      • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

        And the jukebox had both kinds of music: country and western.

  • where am i going that has a jukebox?

    somewhere that i can steal 78s of Doobie Brothers?

  • Digital jukeboxes are the shit because you can play pretty much anything on them. If I’m having a great time, the bar is gonna listen to Thin Lizzy. If I hate everyone and I wanna leave?

    • That thumbnail… My nightmares will be great this night.

    • Pay enough money so that this plays for half an hour straight. Clear the place out and whoever’s left are people you may want to socialize with or not.

      • It’ll just be Molenaar hanging around.

        • Shrimp in a Pizza Box

          Listening to Coldcore all night and drinking beer, not the worst of ideas I guess.

        • Before I’m kicked out for being 12 years old

        • Good then we can play Creation Is Crucifixion’s discography and enjoy the rest of the evening.

    • Bird Seed is my favorite album of theirs but my vote goes to Sutcliffe Jugend’s When Pornography Is No Longer Enough or all 10 discs of We Spit On Their Graves.

    • Stockhausen

      I would love to shoot some pool and drink beer to that. Or just drink beer. Or just sit there. Or just spiral into nothingness, shrieking as the weight of existence is crushed by the horror of nonbeing. Good times all around.

    • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

      Holy shitballs, never would taken you for a Whitehouse fan! Had a couple of their CDs way back when, but haven’t heard them in ages.

  • Scrimm

    Dammit Mcnulty

  • Edward/Breegrodamus™

    Pryzbylewski ❤

  • McNulty and I first met during a drunk halloween night in STL. At the bar, McNulty put in requests for cannibal corpse that were immediately skipped when they came up. For shame, barkeep. For shame.

    • Dubs

      How many times have y’all hung out?

    • what gets my goat is that it was halloween night: scary music should not have been out of place.

    • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

      Kill the barkeep, kill the barkeep, kill the barkeep! *sings in Morrissey voice*

  • Great job, Mañuti.

    Even when I don’t know what the fuck is a jukebox.

  • The Tetrachord of Archytas

    I never see working jukeboxes around my area. Even when the bar environment looks cool, they blast club music cause everyone here sucks. Also everyone I grew up with that sucked at guitar is a DJ now

  • I’m somewhat diplomatic. Although there was this one time my buddies and I decided to wild out by playing a block that included Deicide and Converge. Also spinkled in there was some Ol’ Dirty Bastard and Cave In’s “Sing My Loves” which is not too harsh for regular peeps.

    • Deicide scared folks away, ODB reeled them back in… with aplomb! some white girls are dancing, and a dude way cooler than us just bought you an expensive beer!

      • I was out to create manic depression in the form of a playlist that night.

    • RJA

      Ol’ Dirty Bastard = guaranteed good time.

    • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

      Hippa to da hoppa and ya jus don stoppa

      • I think it was either Shimmy Shimmy Yaw or Brooklyn Zoo but most of the songs off of RTT36C are a safe bet.

        • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross


  • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

    Only nearby bar with a jukebox qidely available doesn’t much metal have, outside Iron Maiden and Cradle of Filth, none. So I play none.

    • In my defense, I think Cradle of Filth is a fun band to play in that context.

      Would play it/10

      • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

        Mannequin is a class tune.

      • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

        Fun live show, horrible music.

    • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

      Odd, considering you live in the metal capital of the world. You’d think they’d have some Sentenced or Nightwish there at least.

      • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

        Metal bar’s are a different thing, there’s a few and not too far (although far enough for me not to barge in spontaneously), but I live in the old-drunkard-district so that’s who the bars cater to.

        And most bar’s don’t really even have a jukebox.

        • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

          I can only think of one metal bar in Chicago, and that shut down after a year and a half. A lot of places for reggae, techno, blues, indie rock, industrial (way back in the Wax Trax days and early 2000s when VNV Nation was actually kinda big), folk, but nothing for metal.

  • Waynecro

    This is a fascinating article, McNults. Thanks a bunch. The place my parents drink beer every Sunday night has one of those fancy internet-connected jukeboxes. My mom usually plays Opeth medleys after she’s had a few. Back in the day, me and my drunken pals would eat at this old-school Pizza Hut that had an old-school jukebox. We probably spent ten bucks on Journey songs whenever we went there.

    • Lil’ Waynecreas’s Mom >>>>>> (juejuejue)
      but Journey <<<<“, you did great!

      • Waynecro

        Falling down drunk in a Pizza Hut while you and a bunch of bros sing along with “Don’t Stop Believin'” is the very definition of youth.

      • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

        Journey Wheel in the Sky >>>>>>

  • RJA

    I have a guy I work with who “pretty much listens to everything”. I made him a small mix cd with stuff like Nyogthaeblisz, Tetragrammacide, shit like that. I called it my “fuck off” mix. I enjoyed making it quite a bit.

  • Goddamnit, you mentioning Van Halen reminded me of a recent Bobs Burgers episode I saw. They referenced Van Halen and The Red Rocker. It was on the “Stand By Gene” episode which was absolute gold.

    Gene: “I’m more of a Sammy Hagar.”

    Tina: “Hagar-in’ it! Hagar-in’ it to destiny.” *Body slams on rock to rock like Sammy Hagar*

  • Pro tip: don’t play grind in the jukebox, go for long songs and get your money’s worth.

    • Dubs

      Dream Theater’s “Octavarium” costs the same as Napalm Death’s “You Suffer.”

      • Oh. My. Gawd.

        • That’s mind-blowing shit

          • Sadly, no. Hahaha! That comment may have been the best thing I’ve read in a while though. Holy shit.

        • Dubs

          It also guarantees every human in the bowling alley will be mad, your metal buddies included.

      • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

        If it weren’t so expensive to do, I’d put on all of the Astonishing on the jukebox. All 2 1/2 hours of it!

      • ME GORAK B.C.™

        GORAK KNOWS HOW GET $$$$$ WORTH!!!!!

    • i have been known to play Uriah Heep’s “Solisbury” (17+ minutes). people have no clue what is going on (except that one old lady who noticed and talked to me about the band for half an hour, and said that i was “way cooler than most kids”)

    • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

      Play some Moonsorrow and REALLY get your money’s worth!

    • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross


  • D. Lee

    I like jamming Every Time I Die’s Wanderlust at the bar when I go out drinking. The “what is this shit?” Look is relatively kept to a minimum and I rly enjoy it

  • Shrimp in a Pizza Box

    Not really a jukebox, but I got a Discord server with a bunch of peeps and we’ve got a music bot set up. They always try to scare each other out with a certain “Shrek ear rape” song but never let me listen to Cloak of Altering. I am le sad.

  • Óðinn

    Unfortunately, not everybody appreciates Primitive Man at office parties.

  • Spear

    I definitely play the diplomat when a jukebox is available. I’ll start off with something like “Child of Innocence” by Kansas or a bluesy Black Sabbath tune. From there, I’ll go into something like “Man on the Silver Mountain” or a Maiden song, depending on the mood. Then I go straight to Demigod and start moshing on people.

    • Stockhausen

      “Child of Innocence” is a banger of a song.

      • Spear

        I just jammed Masque for the first time in forever last night. I don’t think there’s a single dud on the whole album.

  • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

    People at my usual bars knew I was there the moment metal or industrial came on the jukebox, jackhammering it’s way through the usual dusties (old school R&B) or countless repeats of ‘Give Me The Green Light’ and ‘Strokin’. Dissection, SYL, Nitzer Ebb, Punto Omega (only Big City Tap had that on their jukebox, which was a ways away from my neighborhood back home. My all time fave bar), Stratovarius, 7 Year Bitch, and various other stuff I’d dig for were the usual ones I’d put on. If people didn’t already know me and hang out with me outside of those places, I’m pretty sure I’d have been 86’d in record time!

  • tigeraid

    Maybe this is a Canadian thing, but I never, ever see any metal tracks worth a shit on jukeboxes. Where are you fuckers getting all this awesome Kreator and Bolt Thrower jukeboxes? I need to move there.

    • Internet-enabled jukeboxes are the best bet. they don’t have EVERYTHING, but one will find Nile, Cannonball Corpse, Messugar, bands of that caliber.

      • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

        There’s gotta be a way to hack into those ones. There’s gotta!

      • tigeraid

        I think maybe I’ve been out of the bar scene too long. Didn’t even know of Internet-enabled jukeboxes.

  • Super Nintendo Chalmers

    Top Gun soundtrack on repeat only.

  • Warheart

    Not a jukebox story. In my old jobs no one ever knew I live and breathe Metal, but I knew some coworkers were into it (but honestly, sunday metalheads), so one day the boss asked us for a list of songs to listen at work, I didn’t give a fuck, but those guys were really excited and added a song to the playlist. So I was there being tortured by atrocious pop songs when Satyricon’s Mother North began, people reaction? Laughs and chuckles, “That guy is puking” and things like that. Ok, I know Mother North is not the epitome of black metal but that day I knew Metal somehow has lost it’s shock value to normal people.

  • Dagon

    In a few days I’ll attempt to go to a Stoned Jesus / Saturndust concert. Both bands are palatable enough to a normie that’s already into rock, I’d say. Specially Stoned Jesus’ last album.

    This was a cool read. I miss hanging out in here. Love you guys.

    • aw Dagon, we still have sexting Instagram

    • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

      Nossa! Quanto tempo, amigo! Good to see you around again!

  • Stockhausen

    My usual strategy is to load it with Tom Waits, but it sounds like you’re telling me to pay for hours of Portal.

  • Pentagram Sam

    Cool ass bar in San Antone called Bond’s 007 actually has Testament, Overkill, Mercyful Fate, Misfits, allllll that shit in the cd player juke so no holding back there.

    In Midland at Fast Freddies, they had a shitty “best of the 80’s” comp with like Seasons In The Abyss and Anthrax’s Indians along with I think Four Horsemen so we played those three everytime.

    Fuck shitass fucking bartenders who use the “skip track” Fuck em in their goddamn ear. I’ve gotten livid when a bad ass metal song I fucking paid for comes up and the bartender laughs, makes some kinda queef strain face, then looks around the bar at the other people there thinking he’s goddamn the second coming of Carlin then goes “hurrrr hurrrrrrr, not at this bar”. Then ohhhhh here comes Godsmack and all the asshats at the bar start clapping. Fuck you. Imma go piss all over your toilet paper and shit in the urinal you fuck.

    Because of that, I generally like to be the diplomat. McNulty’s statutes are good ones to follow, no “single / radio” songs.

    • Mr. Sam, the very scenario you described makes me about as mad as i am capable of becoming (which is “not very”).

    • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

      That’s when you wait until he’s not looking, reach over the bar for the remote, walk out and fling that thing into the nearest curb side drain pipe.

  • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

    CLUTCH! As many of you can guess, they are my go to at a bar when I actually want to pay for a song.
    Good work, Jimmy. I really enjoyed this. I mainly see myself as the diplomat most of the time. Unless of course they have 15 minute Pink Floyd songs that i can play for the same price as my favorite Ramones tracks. That is quality and quantity!

    • never had a doubt in my mind about your picks, BtR

      • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

        I was all excited to talk abut Clutch, then you mentioned Clutch, then I was excited Clutch was already name-dropped in the article so i capitalized CLUTCH and marked Clutch with an exclamation mark, like so, CLUTCH!

    • unfortunately, there’s not much of a demand for those in St. Louis. some have cropped up here and there, but they do not last. fuck, how much easier would life be…

      • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

        There was The Metal Shaker (my best friend did a show with Morgue Supplier there years back) back in Chicago, but that ended up closing about a year and a half after opening. That’s the only metal bar there I can think of.

        • “closing about a year and a half after opening”
          you just hit the head on the nail, sadly. if i were you, i’d just keep living in Chicago and perhaps another one will crop up 😉

  • more beer

    Glad I live in a place with 2 metal breweries. No need for a jukebox since they are playing music I like.

    • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

      I’m not even sure if the bars around here even have jukeboxes, since I haven’t been to any of them, and haven’t been to a bar in 2 1/2 years. As far as I know, none of the restaurants here in the Denbigh area serve alcohol outside of Red Lobster up the street.

      • more beer

        Most of the time when go out it is for the purpose of music. So what is being played isn’t really an issue. Man I just looked at your Denbigh hood on google street view. Churches everywhere.

        • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

          Yup! That might explain quite a lot on the alcohol front here.

          • more beer

            But most of those people are probably drunks.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Especially with all the Navy folks around here.

  • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

    I never cue up tunes at either of my locals, I spend most of my free time listening to music I really like so once in a while I like to let someone else decide. But when invited to choose bands I play the diplomat usually, Black Sabbath or Iron Maiden. Alice in Chains if I’m feeling more intense, Sonic Youth if I’m high.

    • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

      I just realised I gotta play In A Gadda Da Vida if either have the long one.

    Oddly enough, me and my friends put Lords Of Acid’s ‘Pussy’ and ‘Rubber Doll’ on as a joke at the bar near my house, and it ended up on the top plays list a week later. I honestly thought everyone would be like ‘WTF?!?!?’ and likely slap one of us, but again, oddly enough people put it on afterwards and actually danced to it.

    This is really interesting. My imagination is strong, so I just tune everything out and have my own song playing in my head at all times. I pretend everyone is listening to that song, and that’s enough for me.
