Actually metal gets its name from the Steppenwolf song "Born to be Wild", in it there is a line that says, "heavy metal thunder", this line was talking about motorcycles, but people thought it was about the type of music. As you can see, the name stuck.

Heavy metal thunder anyone? Hopefully some gets the reference/fun fact.

Really? Because if I dropped a big rock on a car, I'm pretty sure the metal would dent while the rock would be just fine.

So...if someone could rebut this, that would be swell.

You can also dent a car with water if you have enough of it. that doesn't mean that water is harder than metal, it's just that there is more of it. You did pose a valid argument however.

This may have to do with part of it, although alot have said it was due to Black Sabbath's guitarist having a metal finger tip.

This was posted a few months ago and alot of people explained it, just wait for one of them to come along.

Actually, most metals are softer then rock. You can bend most metal but you cannot bend most rocks. Unless you're Toph, then you can do both.

Which is why they heat the metal before shaping it.

"Hardness is the measure of how resistant solid matter is to various kinds of permanent shape change when a force is applied."

can you bend metal? yes (metallic bonds more malleable)

can you bend rock?... no (covalent and ionic bonds are not malleable)

Can you shatter metal? Not easily

Can you shatter rock? Normally pretty easy

Bending is not the only force that can be applied

Actually.... by the scientific definition of hardness, the average rock is harder than the average metal

No, it's called 'metal' because it sounds like scraping metal...

Aka, painful to listen to.
