Top Definition
A genre of accelerated alternative rock that takes influence from such well known metal acts as Pantera, Metallica Slayer, Anthrax, etc. as well as groove, rap, hip hop or even industrial music. These bands are often lumped in with metalcore bands because they are both mainstream and both utilize playing styles such as using breakdowns.

Nu-metal bands include but are not limited to:
Slipknot(from Iowa not the original Thrash band)
System of a Down
Tool
