Whiny crossbreed of 80s metal and any number of other elements (rap, hip-hop, and occasionally classical music). Usually involves people wanting to slit their wrists and die as bloodily as possible because they hate the world and everyone in it. Nu-metallers can probably be found in every town in the western world. You will know them by their Slipknot/Korn/Limp Bizkit/System of a Down hoodies and black cloud over their head that comes from being 15 and their parents 'not understanding them'.
Nu Metal CD: How can I feel pain, how can I feel pain, when you're being so supportive? Aaaaarghghghgkkk...
Nu-Metal Kid: *mumblings of approval, devil horn fingers* This stuff is good.
Man: Please, for the good of humanity, get some Pantera or Metallica or Guns N' Roses or something.

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 über, 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.

A genre of metal that incorporates traditional metal with other elements such as hip hop or electronica. A lot of it is really good--unlike the boring wasteland known as saint anger by Metallica. Like any other genre there are good bands and bad bands. The good: (old) Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park, Crazy Town,(Hed)pe, Deftones etc. The okay, they usually have some good songs and some crap ones: Staind, Cold, Korn, Slipknot. the bad: Breaking Benjamin, Flyleaf, Ten Years, Earshot, Static X, etc.
Nu metal was good between 1998-2002. It died in 2003. Now it is crap except for Korn.
I seriously don't know why Metallica and death metal are so great. I mean, all they do is play their guitars really fast and scream.
