We got this email recently, and figured it’s a good question to share with everyone:
The Metal Bandcamp Gift Club is one of the coolest things I have ever seen hatched on Twitter. I’m definitely a metal head, but I also like stuff from other genres. I want to step outside of metal realm and gift people other genres of music as well, because I like the idea so much. My question to MetalBandcampGiftClub is: Do I still use the #metalbandcampgiftclub hashtag? Is that the metal thing to do, or does that undermine what you are trying to accomplish?
There’s really no rules, but it’d be fun to include the #MetalBandcampgiftclub hashtag just so people see where it sort of “came from.” And also, because fellow metalheads would probably like seeing the music, too! A lot of us listen to other genres of music, with metal being our “home,” but we still love so much other music!
