I Can't Believe It's Not Metal
“Just one calorie, not metal enough!”
I Can't Believe It's Not Metal is a low-calorie Metal Substitute, otherwise known as aluminium, Diet Metal, Metal Lite and Plastic. It is not popular as everyone loves sugar and fattening things, and "I Can't Believe It's Not Metal" is just not as sweet as heavy metal. It is usually only used by metalheads who are on a diet or non-metalheads getting weaned onto stronger metal because in most countries metal is considered too strong a drug for children or teenagers to listen to.
Information on Metal Substitutes in General
Metal Substitutes such as I Can't Believe It's Not Metal and Utterly Mettaly are artificially created non-metallic products. They are made with those funny knobs and those buttons in recording studios that allow metal products to sound even more metal-ish. They require the extensive use of the computer and need exactly 400 computer programs in order to allow the song to sound heavy, metallic, or "not some pussy-sounding shit".
The main reason why most people cannot believe that it is metal, is because they have been confused by "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" and are unable to realize what is real. The investigation on what is in the butter flavored substitute is underway, but many believe that it, like most fake things, is made in China and is constructed from emo wannabes.
Metal Substitutes are all highly radioactive (as in, they are always there playing on the radio) and can easily make one crazy, which is why they reached their peak popularity in the late 1990s and early 2000s, because at that time nothing was fun.
Origin of I Can't Believe It's Not Metal
One day God lost a singing contest to a Metallica fan and decided to punish the entire metal community with a race of groups that would eventually allow Jonathan Davis to get laid. Thus, I Can't Believe It's Not Metal was born. Of course, God says that He did this because people's ears were becoming swollen, and blocked. This meant that no one understood anything God said (but that's typical).
