Nu Metal is a form of music that evolved from punk/hardcore in the metal deprived years of the early nineties. The band that is most often credited with the creation of Nu Metal is KoRn, or in other words the greatest band ever. Nu Metal is unique because unlike heavy metal which involves a more complicated and changing guitar riff, a Nu Metal riff is more repetitive and simpler, which means that most songs revolve around the tempo/pitch of the riff. Nu Metal has been on the descent because of shit bands like Limp Bizkit and slipknot, but many people fail to realize several other good Nu Metal bands such as Tool, KoRn, Godsmack, and Disturbed. Another thing, metal was failing miserably in the nineties, especially after the grunge era with bands like Nirvana, and metal was going to soon be pronounced dead, but like I stated earlier, with the arrival of bands like KoRn metal was reenergized and popular again. So the next time your going to bash Nu Metal, or a Nu Metal band, thank them (or at least the early ones, some new Nu Metal bands like slipknot suck) for saving the heavy metal that we all love today
Nu Metal saved metal and changed the way we look at music
++++Good Bands++++KoRn (godfather of Nu Metal), Mudvayne, Tool, Godsmack, Disturbed
----Bad Bands----Slipknot (music is pure shit, no talent) Linkin Park (could be good but music sounds all the same), Limp Bizkit (Need I say more?)

A form of false metal that emerged from the mainstream and into the CD players of trendy kids everywhere during the mid nineties. Contrary to the name, Nu metal is not and has no relation to metal music. The term "Nu metal" was given to the genre by the likes of MTV who are 100% clueless to anything having to do with metal.

The componenets of a new metal band are as follows:

1. Guitarists who cannot play at all and literally just picked up the instrument. They play very downtuned guitars and 90% of the time they make "riffs" using an open string and the first fret. Occasionally they might use the 3rd or 4th fret but rarley does this happen.

2. The vocalists usually raps or "screams" like a little bitch. The lyrics tend to be about teen angst, wanting to die, cutting yourself, being a loser, hating your parents or simply just being a faggot. At no time whatsoever is any manliness or dignity permitted in nu metal lyrics.

3. The drummers are completely talentless.

4. They dress like transvestites, goth fags, with body paint or wear masks. At no point can the nu metal attire be in any way intimidating. You typical nu metal band consists of five members none of which look as though they could bench press more than 70 lbs. They must look sad, emo and depressed in pictures or make a sad attempt at looking angry. At all times they must look hilarious.

Examples of Nu metal bands are as follows: Korn, System of a down, POD, Linkin park, Limp bizkit, 40 below summer, Coal chamber, Taproot, Soil, Murderdolls, Mudvayne, Papa roach, Mushroomhead and Adema.

Contrary to the belief of posers and trendwhores, Nu metal bands are not and have nothing to do with metalcore bands like Lamb of god, Shadows fall and Unearth. There is not one similarity between nu metal and metalcore considering that metalcore takes a ton of talent, do not look like faggots and actually have manly or intelligent lyrics regarding violence, drinking, politics and hatred. The popularity of Nu metal has dwindled in recent times as the tougher, less emo and far more talented genre of metalcore has taken it's place. Many nu metal fans have become angered at the rise of bands who do not write songs about killing themselves and hating their parents. Ironically enough, the insult most freqently used by these trendslaves is to call metalcore "emo" in a hilarious attempt to degrade the genre. This is 100% untrue as metalcore bands write lyrics along the same lines as death metal and thrash metal and not a single metalcore song ever written has had anything to do with wanting to die, cutting your wrists etc. The hilarious hypocrisy in this is that while the metalcore bands have lyrics that are as far from emo as possible, nu metal bads have the most emo lyircs ever and fans of ANY nu metal bands are in no postion to make fun of anything emo, trendy or talentless since their beloved genre is in fact all 3 of those things in extreme degress.

Your typical Nu metal fan will dress like an actual metalhead with long hair, black clothes, peircings, tattoos, facial hair etc. Although they are not and have nothing to do with metal they will either a) Claim to be metalhead even though they are not thus making them a poser.

or

b) Claim not to be a metalhead even thought they dress like one making them an EXTREME poser.

Both of these frustrate actual metalheads since their inhehrent badassness is being portrayed wrongly by emo kids in disguise. Hating Nu metal and its fans are one of the biggest parts of being an actual metalhead and no metalhead would touch a Nu metal band with a ten foot stick. One exception to this rule is the band Slipknot. Slipknot is in fact the one Nu metal band that takes influence from real metal and incorporates it into the genre thus making it appealing to metalheads and poser emo nu metal kids alike. Slipknot is also disliked by many nu metal fans because of the actual metal influence thus proving how much of pussies Nu metal fans actaully are.

Surveys and studies have been done that show that Nu metal fans are signifigantly less intelligent than average people. The studies show that they rival listeners of mainstream rap which is why many Nu metal listeners tend to like rap/techno artists like ICP, Nelly, Mindless self indulgence etc. over the actual intelligent talented rappers like Immortal technique and DZK. Nu metal fans are as dumb as they come.
Nu metal is trendy, emo and talentless. Don't be a Nu metal fan!

Sure ok, Disturbed, Linkin Park, whoever else you say is "nu-metal" well, I could give less of a shit if you called Linkin Park the most hard core boy band, because they kick ass!
Linkin Park is fucking ├╝ber, as well as all the other so called "nu-metal" bands.

a term invented by the media to categorize any form of heavy/hardcore/aggressive music that comes from 1990-...
very unpopular with fans of "true" metal from the eighties or "black metal"or anyother kind of music meant for retards who seem to think its hardcore to hate music that sells so instead watch bands stand with their feet planted on stage with their eyes rolled into the back of their head trying to look hardcore
- another "true" form is speed metal which constains high speed drumbeats and alternate picked power chords over monotone "dark" lyrics with a pathetic attempt at singing, but of coarse its considered good because it is not nu-metal
bands such as tool, system of a down, deftones, (which are not metal, they are of far better quality then any metal bands)
are given a hard time by people because of the creation of this false genre regardless of there amazing live performances and unbelievable vocal abilities.

nu metal does not exist, it is horseshit
metal is not original as some claim, the most original and diverse decade of music by far is the 90's enough of this death-hardcore-satanist bullshit coming from these stubborn, whiney, hypocrites
metal sucks listen to music that is unique and creative

A modern version of metal music, this genre includes bands such as KoRn, Slipknot, System of a Down, Limp Bizkit, Tool, iLL NiNo, Disturbed, Godsmack, Staind and a lot of others that are just too shitty to even mention. Like any genre of music, nu-metal has its good and bad (except for emo, it's all bad). However, nu-metal is almost always violently attacked by Metal Snobs who think 80's metal is the be-all-end-all of music.

While I am a huge fan of Metallica, Megadeth, and Black Sabbath, I believe that there are some really good nu-metal bands, and the people who constantly rip on nu-metal are fuckups, losers who listen to punk/emo/indie rock and stoners in their mid forties. Get it through your heads, death metal and black metal fucking suck. Go rape some school girls or pretend you're "dark" and "evil" because you like listening to some Scandinavian fag scream about the devil. Death/black metal fans love to say nu-metal gives metal a bad name, but it's really the death-head morons that rave about murder, human sacrifice, killing babies and Satan who are responsible for that.

The truth is, in many cases, many young people who start out listening to nu-metal are later introduced to old school metal; a lot of metal fans enjoy both because they appreciate variation. You want to bash nu-metal? Target losers like Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit.
Good nu-metal: KoRn, SOAD, Disturbed, iLL NiNo, Atreyu, FLAW

Bad nu-metal: Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit, Staind, Puddle of Mudd... those not mentioned are just average or mediocre.
