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!
metal is not the only music!
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?
