Nu-metal is a non- existant sub-genre of metal. Though common cited as a "genre" it is merly a segregation between the larger family of metal.more...
Nu-metal is classified by it's heavy, downtuned guitar riffs, complementary bass riffs, and unique drumming/pecussion style.
Nu-metal comes under fire constantly because of it's "simple" guitar riffs, angry singing/screaming style, and the appearance of it's bands.
These arguements are very closed minded and ignorant, however. Those who complain about the simple guitar riffs fail to elaborate on how this is detrimental to the actual music: the repetitive arguement is that the guitarist fails to show any talent, but music isn't about the band, it's the sound they make. That is a fact, as any self respecting band of any genre will tell you that. There is also the arguement that "all the bands sound alike". This is true, but is just as common in other musical genres. For example, the nu-metal band "Limp Bizkit" can be closely compared to the band "Reveille". However, you can also say that Jack Johnson sounds similar to Jason Mraz, and AC/DC sounds like Guns N' Roses, and Green Day sounds like Sum 41 and so on. Every genre has bands that sound alike, because they are a genre! They are the same kind of style!
People, open up your eyes! Music is for everyone! There is no reason to critize an entire fanbase of people because they like something different than you.

You are the cutest little nu-nu I've ever seen.
Nü Metal isn't classic metal. It's not supposed to be classic metal. It is a different genre. That's what everybody that has defined nü metal needs to understand.
For nü metal, I mainly listen to Mudvayne, System of a Down, and Stone Sour. But I also listen to real metal; Children of Bodom, In Flames, and Arch Enemy to name a few.
Just because it isn't as hard as classic metal, that doesn't mean it isn't good.
Nü metal is good in it's own respect.
metal that has been around since the 90s infusing metal with other genres of music including such as rap and techno and industrial most nu metal bands include KoRn, SlipKnot, Disturbed, Static-x, Chimaira, Fear Factory despite how what most ppl bad mouth nu metal saying it isnt worthy compared to old skool n thrash metal your right they cannot compete with old skool or thrash metal vut it is still the metal scene of otday n it has contributed a lot to metal culture so all metalheads should be damn proud of nu metal
nu metal is still decent
The down-tuned nu metal sound is simply absurd. The strings are down so low they are virtually hanging off the neck, leaving a woolly, indistinct barrage of black noise. QUIT TRYING TO BE SOMEONE. Only kick ass rock like Motley Crue's which the entire Dr. Feelgood set was tuned down to D for added power.more...
Samples, DJs, scratching, and all that lameness: Please! Is it rock or dance? Aside from the sheer lack of creativity involved in samples, the whole vibe of rock 'n' roll with its jamming and unpredictability is removed in a sea of computer-generated mechanical perfection. And while DJ-ing may be quite a skill (debate that elsewhere), to class DJs as musicians is pretty laughable. Anyway, all that stuff is just nauseating. AND their use of loops is simply down to bad musicianship. Losers.
Stupidity: If you asked me to describe any nu metal band in ten words, intelligent would not be one of them. Not would it be if you gave me 1000 words. This manifests itself in the lyrics, where Durst et al, too dense to think of anything to actually say, simply swear for four minutes in a time in a bid to persuade us that they are hard. It's not working, mate.
Melody vs. rap: One problem with guitars tuned sub-sonically low… no one can sing over them. Besides which, Korn, Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park and co. couldn't carry, let alone write, a tune to save their lives. So instead they rap, all very well except that rap depends on a) clever lyrics and b) diverse instrumentation. So with th...
