A modern version of metal music, this genre includes bands such as KoRn, Slipknot, System of a Down, Limp Bizkit, Tool, iLL NiNo, Disturbed, Godsmack, Staind and a lot of others that are just too shitty to even mention. Like any genre of music, nu-metal has its good and bad (except for emo, it's all bad). However, nu-metal is almost always violently attacked by Metal Snob
s who think 80's metal is the be-all-end-all of music.
While I am a huge fan of Metallica, Megadeth, and Black Sabbath, I believe that there are some really good nu-metal bands, and the people who constantly rip on nu-metal are fuckups, losers who listen to punk/emo/indie rock and stoners in their mid forties. Get it through your heads, death metal and black metal fucking suck. Go rape some school girls or pretend you're "dark" and "evil" because you like listening to some Scandinavian fag scream about the devil. Death/black metal fans love to say nu-metal gives metal a bad name, but it's really the death-head morons that rave about murder, human sacrifice, killing babies and Satan who are responsible for that.
The truth is, in many cases, many young people who start out listening to nu-metal are later introduced to old school metal; a lot of metal fans enjoy both because they appreciate variation. You want to bash nu-metal? Target losers like Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit.
