There is this never ending battle in the metal community about the classification of " real" metal and "fake" metal. What do you guys think?

There's no such thing as "real" or "fake" Metal. The terms are usually just used by dumb Metal elitists that won't accept a particular scene or artist usually because of their appearance or musical style.
I think it's just their way of saying "This band really really really sucks".

I think 'false metal' might also be used to describe Metal that includes non-Metal influence. Usually isn't exactly Metal at it's core like uhhh... Sunbather by Deafheaven since they're Black Metal but also add in some Post-Rock and Shoegaze influence into the mix.
The mentality is basically "If it isn't purely Metal, then it's not trve Metal!!! \m/". 
ALSO used by Metal elitists. :P
