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.

people underrate nu metal because they are babies and don't want to try anything other than iron maiden, who suck by the way. people never even give nu metal a chance. they have not heard the great nu metal bands like mudvayne and disturbed, which actually have meaningfull lyrics, unlike Iron Maiden which sings about fricking Noah's ark in Number of the Beasts. Give nu metal a chance its the best music to ever be created
