If you're going to play black/death metal at the school, there's a 99% chance most of the people who hear it will go "What the fuck is that!? That's awful! Turn it off!", either out loud or in their heads.

At least that's what I'd do. :p

But metal in general isn't really "school appropriate", with the extreme genres probably being the worst.

The closest to "school appropriate" there is in metal would be glam, but even then you'd still have a hard time finding something "school appropriate". :lol2:

Show them the lyrics first, then once they're interested play it.

Sure, they'll hate the music, but if the lyrics are good enough you might just be able to surprise them and open their minds a little.

Once in eighth grade I was given free rein over what music to play for a game in our Spanish class and I chose Transilvanian Hunger. Good times.

There's plenty of school-appropriate metal.

Traditional heavy metal, power metal, folk metal, progressive metal and even some thrash and melodeath all come to mind as being more likely to be lyrically appropriate than the party-hard themes of glam metal.

I've used Primordial (many songs about the history of Ireland) and Bathory ("One Rode To Asa Bay") in school projects before. Also one of Gojira's environmental songs.

Back in high school our Spanish teacher said we can listen to music while studying. As long as it's sung in Spanish. I only knew two songs that fit that description, ZZ Top's Que Lastima and Mescalero. Of course I got bored of them pretty soon and that's when I found El Reloj. Argentinian prog rock band whose last album is heavy metal.

Thrash, Melodeath, and Traditional are a bit a stretch.

Power and Folk might be a stretch depending on who is singing it and what it's about.

But I'll give you Progressive.

One Rode To Asa Bay is a fascinating account of the violent christianization of ancient Scandinavia, so I recommend that one. You could use pretty much anything from their Viking years though.

I always try to throw in metal and similar genres whenever possible in school projects. Last year I used Carach Angren, Sabaton, Katatonia, Bring Me The Horizon, Nhor and Born of Osiris on the same project.
