To all the turds that go Korn sux, Linkin Park is a bunch of crybabies, STFU!
Korn singer Jon Davis was raped by his neighbor, Chester Bennington of Linkin Park was sexually abused during his childhood, no wonder their songs have emotions in them.
About nu metal lyrics being repetetive, STFU! You all say Metallica is Metal, their St. Anger for instance... have you counted the times he repeats the st. anger shit?
About rap in nu metal... double STFU! I hate rap too, but not rock rap, i hate hip hop the piece of shit rap. Linkin Park MC Mike Shinoda writes the best rap ever, 50 cent is shit, singing about every time he buys something.
" I just bought bottled water,
Yo, drink it, yo!
Yo, drink it, yo!"
But Shinoda writes rap that no crappy metalhead bitch could ever write.
About emotional lyrics again.
Metal isn't just like:
"Whorship satan, dance around fire, rape your sister"
And Linkin Park and Korn writes about real stuff, stuff that happens unlike metalheads about satan, dragons and shit.
It seems like everyone hates nu metal bands for being rich and popular. Ozzy (cough, cough, old-ass shit) is freakin famous and filthy rich... HEY, He MUST be nu metal!!!!
You're all jealous that all those metalheads aren't as popular as nu metal bands.
About nu metal.
I don't think they were all like, let's be nu metal, cuz it's new and shiny!
Korn Hates being labelled as nu metal, Korn didnt say this is nu metal, some corporate bitches made it up!
The dude who wrote about mallcore and how metal is about rebelling against the system of mall blah blah blah (ghey ass talk). I wanna see you rebel against mall. whadya do?
Moms says: Let's go to mall, rebel bastard.
Rebel bastard: NO!!! ( blows himself up with a modified toaster)
About being all about being popular (whatever).
So maybe some nu metal bands only formed to become famous, but if all the metalheads are just about making music cuz they love to, they would still be in their garages playing their songs. It's not like the forced Ozzy to sell his records.(Agent: Ozzy, become famous!
Ozzy: NO!!! You can't make me!
Agent: Chain him up, we're making him famous
Ozzy: NOO!!! NOOO!)
And Ozzy had a show on MTV! (Metalhead: Ozzy is dead to me!)
About no solos.
Maybe they like music without solos, just cuz they dont have them, doesn't mean they can't write them.
When Linkin Park played "By Myself" live in Texas, they played it with a something like a solo, sure it wasnt like 100 notes a second, but it was great.
I dont like solos myself, cuz they're all so fast and great, not my taste.
Those kids are freaks, Korn didnt make them like that!
Has any of you seen Korn "Y'all want a single" music video?
I rest my case, and yours too, b*****s!
So what if i like nu metal and pop-punk (that's right!)
metal is not the only music!
After many years of extensive research, Scientists have come up with the following definition:
Nu metal: About as good as a dead old womans vagina.
The boy bands of metal. A form of music with repetive and irratating riffs, deridable forced angst lyrics, bad singing, and an undeniable lack of talent. It is a trend among Hot Topic sheep goths, steroid addicted jocks, and 10 year olds who just have been introduced to MTV. The music is commercialized, fake, and mixes metal with forms of rapcore and bad alternative rock. Bands include Slipknot, KoRn, Cold, etc.
If I want to listen to nu-metal I'll make a cheap riff, talk about how my 'soul is raging', and get a corporate producer! Turn that fucking shit off!
A form of hard rock, that started in the early 1990s, with such bands as Korn. Contrary to popular belief, Nu Metal is not actuualy a Metal style, because it evolved from hardcore, which in turn evolved from punk, and not metal.
Nu Metal is closely related to rapcore
Korn, Limp Bizkit, (new) In Flames, (new) Soilwork.
the poser's answer to metal
Poser1:Yo, I'm this music is so raw, its like saying "fuck you" to the corperate world
Poser2:Your cell phones ringing
A new genre of rock that appeared in the late 90's. It includes such bands as Limp Bizkit, System Of A Down, Godsmack and Saliva.
I can't use my radio anymore because it is flooded with this Nu-Metal crap.
corporatized, lobotomized, watered-down mainstream answer to the grind/death/crust music of the late 80s and early 90s crossed with elements of hip-hop, but lacking any of the things that made either form of music music great- i.e. guts, thoughts, belief, intensity, passion, speed, technical ability, a real reason to be angry. Nu-metal encourages kids to buy CDs at the mall, spend their money on stupid accessories at Hot Topic, and rebel against their parents when they should be rebelling against the system that built the mall they're shopping at.
Nu-metal is such a load of shit.
I don't really know what's wrong with those people that hate nu-metal and nu-metal bands. Apart from LP, I don't listen to genres or artists, I listen to _songs_. Damn, if I hear a catchy melody in a Britney Spears song, I'd like it, still knowing Britney is a bitch. So you lame-asses stop whining, take off your f***in' poser masks, and listen to whatever music that you like. And, you could try looking at the lyrics of nu-metal.
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?
There was this really good example here, it was like, "dude listen to this" - "it rocks, what is it?" - "korn" - "it sucks". If you like some music, listen to it, dammit! Enough hipocrisy.
