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.

For nü metal, I mainly listen to Mudvayne, System of a Down, and Stone Sour. But I also listen to real metal; Children of Bodom, In Flames, and Arch Enemy to name a few.
Just because it isn't as hard as classic metal, that doesn't mean it isn't good.
Nu metal fan: I'd rather listen to Korn.
Classic metal fan: Fuck, dude, it isn't REAL metal, it's just shitty nu metal, without awesome guitar solos or musical talent.
Nu metal fan: a music's value isn't based on its complexity. Read Adorno, asshole.
Classic metal fan: I'd rather play WoW.
