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
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
vest of denim or leather, emblazoned with
patches and button from various
heavy metal bands (most commonly Metallica or Slayer).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!"
