While there are probably an equal number of both Korn lovers and haters I can see both sides of the argument, but I fail to understand when a Korn-hater will say that they're nu-metal. Now nu-metal is shit like Limp Bizkit, music that is trying to be hardcore, not dark or satanic but hardcore and 'up and at 'em', Linkin Park is 'nu-metal' but Slipknot and Korn are not, 'new-metal' maybe but not the aforesaid genre as they're far 'heavier' and despite having a crap fanbase of little 10 year old tossers (which might I had I ferverently despise) they're not recycled crap like Limp Bizkit. Korn have officially apologised to the world for establishing Limp Bizkit as they're so damn crap and have done nothing but be complete and utter wankstains and burdens of society and unfortunately Korn can be lumped into the same sentance as them. Nu-metal bands don't write about hating lyrics but more political and rappy style etc. whilst Korn and Slipknot wane more toward hating and oppresion toward mankind and society.
Korn are my favourite band by the way.
Slipknot were the band that took my 'gig virginity'
