Although there is no genre of music that has been officially dubbed 'nu rock', many see nu rock as another name for post-grunge for sounding similar to nu metal without the metal feel and the elements of hip-hop. Although post-grunge isn't commonly known as nu rock, many believe that if you had to call any kind of music 'nu rock', it would have to be post-grunge more than anything.
"Who's your favorite nu rock band?"
"Nu rock? You mean nu metal?"
"No, nu rock. You might know it as 'post-grunge'."
"Oh! In that case, my favorite 'nu rock' band would have to be Creed."
The stupid new genre of music that all you fucking so called "cultured" people listen to. This is the shit thats huge for like one fucking second and then goes away. Music with no real fucking talent only with ability to have their fucking gay videos shown like 50,000 fucking times on MTV. Anyone who listens to nu metal can eat my fucking dick. fuck you.
i.e.:limp bizkit, disturbed, staind, slipknot, puddle of mudd, or whatever else you fucking stupid faggots listen to. Try real fucking music for once, like led zeppelin, Floyd, The Who, or fucking Radiohead.
