look up any word, like bae:
Forget the definition... Most all of you are just hating cause if you did like "nu-metal" you would have to explain it to you narrow-minded friends and then get ur ass kicked. I am a fan of all, new and old... I dont dis a group or band or whatever just because they have a particular theme or silly antics. For the record I like and in some cases LOVE some nu metal bands... however I would agree with the lack of variety that may be present in these commerical groups. I have read most of these definitions and really think that most of you ~90% are just plain silly. I was quite amazed to not see the likes of Marilyn Manson in any of these definitions (if you can call them that) but I guess thats because hes not really metal, but neither is Linkin Park or Slipknot. As I look through my collection of music I see a large mixture of classics like Fleetwood Mac, The Eagles, and Frank Zappa which are certainly classic rock and not metal. But equally as important as the classics is the more recent stuff (recent = last 20 years) Manson Korn and SOAD fill my collection as plenifully as Metallica, Dimmu, and Children Of Bodom do. As I know most of you will reject this commentary I would like to give everyone including myself the opportunity to say, "FUCK YOU!" to all you haters. System is kewl, Slipknot can rock a stadium, Metallica can get you pumped, and Dimmu can corrupt the deepest darkest corners of your soul. They all rock for their own reasons!... And who ever said it was a shame to make a buck off ur music. If you "MetalHeads" consider your precious Slayer(Which Rocks) as tru-metal...(ie Non Corperate) then why does their latest CD cost just as much as the Slipknot album I just bought? Most of your rants are hardly cogent and have little to no conclusive value. So... for the Record; don't get me wrong... some nu metal just plain blows. Fred Durst should be skullfucked alive, shot in the kneecaps, and hung over a bridge to bleed to death for using the word "Dubs" in a song with a distorted guitar.

And now for the definition; drumroll please...

"Nu Metal is the logical transgression of the metal scene popularized during the eighties. It is simplified for easier listening and ease of performance. Its acclaimed artists are often considered talentless sellouts, oppugnants often using the rationale that exorbitant recipt of funds for a product (music-cd) constitues a lesser product."

Now that's a definition...

Okay fags... Get ur thumbs down buttons ready and vote away! HA! Losers! =D Cheers and Goodday.
Metalhead: Hi im afraid of change.

Me: Hi you need to understand that change is good. And if you can't get that through ur little (yet seemingly inpenetrable) skull of steel I put a hole in your head via this ArmourPiercingRound in my brand new M16.

Me: Capeshe!?

Metalhead: Fuck Off! Asshole!

Me: Ka-blewwie!... Aww shit what a mess.

MOTD: Are you willing to die for your nu metal antics?

Nu metal: About as good as a dead old womans vagina.
by Iron Eddie September 17, 2005
A form of hard rock, that started in the early 1990s, with such bands as Korn. Contrary to popular belief, Nu Metal is not actuualy a Metal style, because it evolved from hardcore, which in turn evolved from punk, and not metal.
Nu Metal is closely related to rapcore.
Korn, Limp Bizkit, (new) In Flames, (new) Soilwork.

The boy bands of metal. A form of music with repetive and irratating riffs, deridable forced angst lyrics, bad singing, and an undeniable lack of talent. It is a trend among Hot Topic sheep goths, steroid addicted jocks, and 10 year olds who just have been introduced to MTV. The music is commercialized, fake, and mixes metal with forms of rapcore and bad alternative rock. Bands include Slipknot, KoRn, Cold, etc.
If I want to listen to nu-metal I'll make a cheap riff, talk about how my 'soul is raging', and get a corporate producer! Turn that fucking shit off!

A new genre of rock that appeared in the late 90's. It includes such bands as Limp Bizkit, System Of A Down, Godsmack and Saliva.
I can't use my radio anymore because it is flooded with this Nu-Metal crap.

I don't really know what's wrong with those people that hate nu-metal and nu-metal bands. Apart from LP, I don't listen to genres or artists, I listen to _songs_. Damn, if I hear a catchy melody in a Britney Spears song, I'd like it, still knowing Britney is a bitch. So you lame-asses stop whining, take off your f***in' poser masks, and listen to whatever music that you like. And, you could try looking at the lyrics of nu-metal.

Look at the "broken love"/other themes ratio of most genres. For pop, it's 90/10, for example, 80/20 goes for emo, hip-hop has almost no love, but that's another thing. You see, nu-metal DOES have love songs, but they are different from the masses, and the ratio is something like 40/60.

And why should people blame nu-metal for being mainstream-friendly? Why, in fact, is being "mainstream-freindly" bad? The mainstream is what most people currently like, and, even when its fashion goes away, there would people still listening to it.

And, who cares what kind of people are the musicians? Probably most famous classic music composers were mean bastards, but their music is still remembered. The Beatles were dope-heads, but they still are great. Understand it, nobody cares if Fred Durst is a poser. If you like LB, you like it. And if you don't, you don't.

So stop f***ing around and don't forget that music is made for people to have fun, not to argue. K?
There was this really good example here, it was like, "dude listen to this" - "it rocks, what is it?" - "korn" - "it sucks". If you like some music, listen to it, dammit! Enough hipocrisy.

corporatized, lobotomized, watered-down mainstream answer to the grind/death/crust music of the late 80s and early 90s crossed with elements of hip-hop, but lacking any of the things that made either form of music music great- i.e. guts, thoughts, belief, intensity, passion, speed, technical ability, a real reason to be angry. Nu-metal encourages kids to buy CDs at the mall, spend their money on stupid accessories at Hot Topic, and rebel against their parents when they should be rebelling against the system that built the mall they're shopping at.
Nu-metal is such a load of shit.
