Roundhouser is a popular
term for a devoted fan of heavy metal
music. Roundhousers have created a strongly masculine “exclusionary youth community
” whose core audience in North America
and Europe are white and male.
Roundhousers regularly sport mullets or long, unkempt hair. Their wardrobe is comprised of skin tight blue jeans, hi-top sneakers and black or white t-shirts, worn with a sleeveless vest of denim or leather, emblazoned with patches and button from various heavy metal
bands (most commonly Metallica
Roundhousers are indigenous to the urban strip mall where they can be spotted repeatedly practicing their "round house" kicks for each other whilst enjoying a Mountain Dew
soft drink and a cigarette
One summer, Ryan and Triton were driving
to the local strip mall when they encountered a few mulleted variety store patrons practicing round house kicks, between drags from their Putters cigarettes and sips from their Mountain Dew
. Ryan exclaimed to Triton, as they drove nearer, "Dude! Check out
these f***ing Roundhousers over here!"
