A teenager who was stabbed in the eye during her school lunch break said a "gang mentality" singled out pupils for their music and fashion tastes.

The 15-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, narrowly escaped losing her sight in the attack last November.

She had been the victim of a string of attacks, threats and had even received prank calls at home because she is what is known as "a metaler", Guildford Crown Court heard today.

But she said: "I mean, it's this gang mentality that my generation seems to insist upon and I want to stop it."

Watching the girl give evidence via video link, the jury heard how name-calling in the school canteen had escalated into an attack on the school playing fields.

Mimicking and threatening the girl while queuing to get into the canteen, the three defendants, all pupils at the same school, asked around for a pair of scissors with which they said they would cut off their victim's long hair, the court has heard.

Funny, except for the fact that what you posted is in no way, shape or form "metal"....unless of course you believe what VH1 or MTV tells you.

#1 - it was joke
#2 - if you want to get all semantic, metal was never gangsta either
#3 - I only watch HTNET, HOTZN and SPICE
#4 - do the channels you mentioned really advocate Australian glam rockers?

#3 - interlist referencing is acceptable but annoying
