a band that originated in the late 80's that brought the head thumping, metal music into mainstream media and is heavily regarded as one of the greatest bands of all time. Although same may discredit thier music or how "hard" the music is, it's hard to deny the fact that Metallica has defined the the genre and how it has influenced bands to this day.
Although many bands have tried to "out do" metallica, the band still has some best selling albums in the world.
it is basically and purely, the light beer of music. It's not necessarily as hard or heavy as real metal music(cry me a river about it). It offers a variety of sounds, tastes, and moods , while still having the same base, while Metal is usually just loud angst music. Since it's easier on the ears usually, theres a greater chance of playing a numetal song in public without getting someone offended or pissed off. regular metal music, you have to enjoy it when your alone or with other people who like metal music.
Linkin Park and Adema are good examples of Nu Metal. Linkin Park has a bit of a rap feel to it and has a variety of tones and feelings while still keeping true to themselves. Adema can pull off songs that are almost emo(barricades in time) to songs that are truer to honest metal(Immortal,Estrella,Drowning). Korn, Slipknot, Deftones, and groups like them would also fall into the genre but stay very close to thier pure metal roots
short for playstation portable, it is a portable gaming system recently made by sony entertainment in an effort to sweep the legs of nintendo out from under them. at its release the psp said to play games, music, and movies on one system. initially the idea seemed good, but many people began to realize the fatal flaws that Sony had made, including it's proprietary UMD discs for games and movies, a short battery life, bad coding. but above all the biggest mistake for sony was that honestly all they had done recreate the laptop computer, which has done everything the PSP does for the last 3 years.
UMD's cost about the same as a DVD, but can only be used on the PSP, while the DVD can be used by anything with a dvd drive on it.
Sony released for mandatory firmware updates in the first six months to prevent hacking.
the best selling games for the playstation pointless have been racers or puzzle games.
