A genre started by Korn in the late 80's/early 90's, given a horrible reputation by some of the worst bands EVER (Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park). Often mixes in elements of hip-hop or other genres which can either sound great (Korn, Mudvayne) or OH MY GOD I WANT TO STAB MYSELF IN THE EARS (Limp Bizkit, ICP). Most nu-metal is closer to hard rock than nu-metal.
So to all the anti-mainstream idiots who like to compare every single band in existence to iron Maiden who say that all nu-metal sucks, check out Disturbed, Mudvayne, Deftones, or Slipknots new CD.
And to all the people who say that Slipknot and Disturbed are 10 times better than Iron Maiden and Metallica: SHUT THE FUCK UP YOU TWATS. If it wasn't for Metallica, Joey Jordison wouldn't be drumming right now, so shut the fuck up and enjoy all music.
In short, judge a band by it's quality, not it's genre. Nu metal can be good, or it can be bad.
