n. a critically acclaimed cult-status band that mixes hardcore with smooth melodies. Band members, especially frontman Chino Moreno, have a great love for classic alternative, like the Smiths, the Cure, Depeche Mode, and My Bloody Valentine. The band also has some minor influences from the awesome all-black DC hardcore band Bad Brains.
The Deftones are not really overrated, but rather underrated, as they often get clumped in with nu-metal bands and lesser-talented rock groups like Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park and Korn, despite the fact that the Deftones are nothing like these bands.(The deftones have had one or two rap-metal songs, but these were made way before the crappy band Linkin Park or Limp Bizkit were even on the scene, and without the Deftones, those bands wouldn't even be around)They may be a template for that horrible band Linkin Park, but if that's true, then the band Linkin Park simply wants to be as talented as the Deftones, and if so, they have not succeeded, because they sound like nu-metal crap and nothing like the Deftones. The Deftones are in a genre of their own. No current band has anything on them.
The Deftones are the shit, you can't touch em

An absolutely kickass band, more addictive than the fucking caffeine in my coffee mug, that seem to have created their own, phenomenal genre of music.

One of the few bands that have released four consecutive albums which consist of nothing more than pure, immense greatness.

Deftones kick ass. Period.
theres still blood.. in your hair..

Rationality can go fuck himself. Deftones CREATED Linkin Park you dumb shit. They were there way before any pathetic screamo bands. Deftones are rock gods and have great lyrics.
Rationality sucks. He knows nothing of pure music. Deftones isn't aimed at "angry teenage boys." Pathetic prick.

An alt-metal band which redefined the genre by their unique approach: beyond the hardcore bashing, an eerie quiet exists.
Deftones + Glassjaw = phenomenal.
