Metalgate is a hashtag campaign used on Twitter to counter the stereotype that fans of heavy metal music hold ultra-conservative values and political beliefs. The campaign was promoted by GamerGate supporters as an offshoot of the movement in December 2014.

Background

On December 12th, 2014, the music blog Spin published an article titled "The 20 Best Metal Albums of 2014," which claimed that the metal genre had "deep-seated conservative values". Metal is still dogged by the issues that arise from its deep-seated conservative values, but thanks to an increase in conversations about racism, politics, and feminism, those on the right side of history have gained solid ground. The same day, Death Metal Underground published an article by writer Cory Van der Pol titled "#metalgate", which criticized the Spin article and those who attempt to use metal to push their social agendas.
