Are all metalheads nerds, or just the ones I know?

All the people I'm friends with that listen to metal also seem to be complete nerds. By nerds, I mean they're practically addicted to video games like Everquest, World of Warcraft, City of Heroes, Final Fantasy, they watch anime.. stuff like that. I know it's a silly stereotype, but it gets to me sometimes, lol.

Update:

it's just kind of hard to picture someone liking metal with random screaming and then be playing a video game called Twilight Princess, haha.

    Ive been a Metalhead for about 25 years now and I am definately NOT a nerd, and I dont even play video games.

    Eh, depends. Some metalheads are the party-24/7 ones, and then there are the "nerdy" ones. [And i thought nerdy people only listened to game songs/soundtracks and stuff like that..] Well i listen to many types of metal and dont really have interest in any of those games listed..each metalhead to their own i guess. \m/

    There is actually a simple answer to this question. There are nerds everywhere you go. They like all kinds of music, play all sorts of games, play all kinds of music, sports, games, etc. You name it and a nerd is doing it or invented it. Don't hate nerds though because one day one will be your boss and if you have your own business they will be your customers.
