Bands influenced by MTV, rap, and all that cal. pretending about fans, but money allways attract them.
1)Tends to sell themselves out in a deragory term they are label whores.
2)Tends to write idiotic lyrichs about pain, parents hating them, and tends to use the word numb, pain, satan, ridicule (or thousands of different mocking words)or other issues they allways use.
3)Tends to go soft after a period, and if someone dont like it they blame it on a emotional release.
4)pretending they are heavy by screaming in the worst timing ever and stuff and tuning they're guitar very low.
5) pretending they are the new wave of heavy metal.
6)Probably been issued a "Nu metal the guide to riches " by theyre producers.
7) study KoRn, Slipknot, Limp Bizkit and Linkin Park.

Copied from wikipedia:Bands linked with nu metal derive influence from a variety of diverse styles, including electronica/electronic music, funk, glam rock, gothic rock, grunge, hardcore punk, hip hop, industrial rock, jazz, post punk and synthpop. Also, nu metal derives influence from multiple subgenres of heavy metal including rap metal, funk metal and thrash metal. Nu metal music is mostly syncopated and based on riffs. Its lack of guitar solos and virtuousity contrasts it with other metal subgenres. Another way in which nu metal is contrasted with other metal subgenres is its emphasis on rhythm. Similarities with other metal subgenres include its use of common time, distorted guitars, power chords and note structures primarily revolving around Dorian, Aeolian or Phrygian modes. Some nu metal bands use 7-string guitars over traditional 6-string guitars. 7-string guitars, which are sometimes downtuned to increase heaviness, resulted in bass guitarists using five-string and six-string instruments. Some nu metal bands feature a DJ for additional rhythmic instrumentation. The vocals of many bands may range from melodic singing to rapping to screaming to death growling or in some cases have all of these styles in a single song but it can range from song to song. The lyrics of many nu metal bands focus on pain and personal alienation rather than the themes of other metal subgenres. I thought Id put a definition in that doesnt use childish behaviour to put foward biased arguments
All the are nu metal: Korn, Slipknot, Static-x, Disturbed, Mudvayne, System of A Down...etc.
A form of heavy metal. There are many people on this site that says it's the, "light beer" of metal. Have you even listened to any of slipknot? Most of your taste in metal can hardly be called music. Bands of nu metal actually have something you can enjoy listening to. If you still think it's wimpish, listen to people=shit by slipknot. Then tell me that nu metal is for pussies. Because honestly, you don't know metal.
Slipknot is a great band. All of the extreme metal bands are shit, it's just a riff of electric guitar and a random scream every now and then. Nu metal is the only thing that people with a shred of insanity can enjoy out of the metal genre
Metal with lyrics you can actually understand.
"Hardcore" Metal- "RAHHHHH AHHHHHHHHHH UHHHHH YEEEEEEAH!!!"
Nu Metal- Not screaming at you.
1) nu-metal is an aggressive and raw subculture of metal which generally fuses influences from grunge, hip-hop, alt-rock, and electronic sounds usually with thrash and groove metal.
2) A name used by intolerant and ignorant fucktards who feel the need to slap labels on music in order to descriminate against things they don't like. Usually done by metal n00bs, pretenders and tryhards.
3) A kind of metal with lots of variety, all bands in the genre suffering from the bad reputation of few of them.
Slipknot, Korn, Limp Bizkit and Disturbed (as well as others) are often called so.
1) dude1: "Disturbed is pretty good, but some of their music is a bit strange."
dude2: "Yeah, Nu-Metal can be like that."
2) metalhead: "Man, I love Mudvayne, Pantera, Slipknot and Metallica."
cockfag: "lolzors. wtf wrong wit yo n00b? Slipknot iz totaly Nu-Metal. You r stoopid and ghey."
3) "Limp Bizkit is basically rap, but Slipknot is metal to the core."
A much hated and derided form of music that got popular somewhere between Nirvana and The Spice Girls. It basically took all the complexities of metal and replaced it with rap/hip hop elements.
Bands included: Limp Bizkit
,Insane Clown Posse
and,to an extent,Evanescence and Lostprophets.
Mostly they were shitty beyond shitty but some bands were occasionally good. Korn usually throw out brilliant mosh music and Slipknot are always entertaning.
Nu metal was regarded by some as 80 hair metal for the modern generation,many more publically blasted it but secretly enjoyed it. That's what Nu Metal was really: a HUGE guilty pleasure. Shame on us all for being a part of it.
Once Limp Bizkit lumbered along the horizon,that dumb fuck Fred Durst singing about "Nookie" and "Rollin" like the bastard child of Vannila Ice and Monica Lewinsky,Nu Metal was officially dead. If it was ever alive,that is.
Nu Metal has been succesfully glossed over in the history books,much like Bon Jovi or The War. Slipknot are still trodding their music out to an ever depleating fanbase of 8 year olds,Korn are still doing their things like a 90s nostalgia act and everybody else has either died or retired. Linkin Park have "removed" their Nu Metal sound and Papa ...
a genre of music people love to criticize, without realizing that if it wasn't for nu-metal, you'd have nothing left on the radio but shitty emo/punk bands and more hip-hop crap. also dissed by people who think they are cool, trying to sound like they know what they're talking about by saying things like "LISTEN 2 SLAYER 4 TEH REAL METAL!!!1" or "I CAN PLAY TEH GUITAR BETTER THAN SLIPKNOT!!!1" which is just bullshit from teens or old losers who put on an act of musical sophistication. Think before you disrespect nu-metal or you'll make an idiot of yourself like 95% of the people who posted a definition for this word.
nu-metal is preferable to punk, emo, and rap.
