either nu metal or old alternative (Weezer, Beck), modern rock stations are dropping quick. So next time some pretentious scenester sings some Futureheads song he heard off the OC, thank yourself and your red backwards baseball cap, Bizkit biter.
Dude #2: Uh, because they like to watch hot chicks and listen to decent music.
Dude #1: Are we the only dudes who like to see sweaty bald guys with neck tattos anymore?
Dude #2: I don't know, but it was fun destroying Woodstock and FM rock radio.
Dude #1: Hells yeah!
Nu Metal is closely related to rapcore.
Look at the "broken love"/other themes ratio of most genres. For pop, it's 90/10, for example, 80/20 goes for emo, hip-hop has almost no love, but that's another thing. You see, nu-metal DOES have love songs, but they are different from the masses, and the ratio is something like 40/60.
And why should people blame nu-metal for being mainstream-friendly? Why, in fact, is being "mainstream-freindly" bad? The mainstream is what most people currently like, and, even when its fashion goes away, there would people still listening to it.
And, who cares what kind of people are the musicians? Probably most famous classic music composers were mean bastards, but their music is still remembered. The Beatles were dope-heads, but they still are great. Understand it, nobody cares if Fred Durst is a poser. If you like LB, you like it. And if you don't, you don't.
So stop f***ing around and don't forget that music is made for people to have fun, not to argue. K?
