Although at face value could be conceived to be a leet version of the word "true" (which it is in one sense), it is actually more commonly used amongst fans of black metal, particularly of Scandinavian origin, to compliment a band, person, or thing for it's black metal or Nordic/Viking values.
It's origins are not certain, although one theory suggests it comes from an old polytheistic religion of Northern Europe called Ásatrú. In early days, old Norse languages had no word for "faith" or "belief". Instead they used the word "tru" or "tro" meaning "truth" or "loyal to".
So using the word "tr00" in black metal terms in this case would mean black metal that is honest, genuine loyal to black metal ideas and customs.
The word does not necessarily have to be applied to bands or people, in some cases, with the more cultured and perhaps slightly more tongue-in-cheek, might describe a place as tr00 for its Nordic, satanic, spooky or dark vibes.
The term kvlt may also be used and has a similar effect.

A funk rock band, currently made up of singer Anthony Kiedis, Flea (born Michael Balzary), John Frusciante and Chad Smith. They have gone through various line-up changes, but mainly based around Kiedis and Flea.
Flea is one of the best bassists in history, with frequent use of slap bass technique.
Hillel Slovak was arguably their best guitarist, but died tragically from a heroin overdose.
They have released 8 albums to date. Their first four albums are the better but unfortunately lesser known material.

An interesting fact about Anthony Kiedis is that he is of Lithuanian and Apache Indian descent.

Generally speaking, anybody of Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish (arguably) and Icelandic descent, but quite a few people from other northern European countries (including Latvia, Germany and some people in the UK) would consider themselves Nordics too. Nordics are stereotyped as having blond hair and blue eyes, and this is not too far from the truth. Another typical trait is their cheekbones or face shape. For some it is often seen as the same sort of idea as the Aryan race, and there are some neo-Nazi groups who are more specifically based on the idea of Nordic superiority.

Nordic women are quite often very attractive.

A modern, mainstream and watered down form of metal, often mixed with elements of another style, often rap/hip-hop. Famous bands include Korn, Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park and System Of A Down. Some bands were more tolerable than others, but on the whole pretty much any band was played beyond the point of annoyance.

Nu-metal's marketing points are it's apparent 'coolness', songs structured with very simple musicianship (in keeping with grunge philosophies), the angsty lyrics, a marketable style which mostly fuses sportswear with grungier, baggier styles, and the feeling of being an outsider or one of the un-cool kids (this is quite ironic as most people who jumped the nu-metal bandwagon at it's height were popular people or became popular as a result). It is one of many fads employing the 'anti-cool' philosophy. Most people who adopt this lack the intelligence to see the irony.

Nu-metal gradually phased out as predicted, and the very same idiotic crowd would be seen later jumping on the emo bandwagon, which is popular at the time of writing. The style would drastically change from stupid baggy jeans to horn-rimmed specs, lip piercings, etc. Whatever fad, though, most scenesters have a LiveJournal account.

Nu-metal is reviled by dedicated metal purists, particularly classic metal and death/black metal fans. This is because it is seen as a false type of metal. Whether this is true or not, the point is defended by the fact that nu-metal was the epitome of crass commercialism. Tragic also, is the fact that nu-metal is the predominant perception of metal as a whole, which has led to would-be real metal fans writing off an entire genre of inventive and inspiring music.
Nu-metal has been phased out in favour of another fad.
