WTF is Nu-Metal?

i haven’t read the other thread, but how are slipknot not nu-metal? everything about them is nu-metal. rap metal, dj/decks interlude, angry bro rage, drop tuning, angst, catchy choruses, masks… everything about them is nu-metal.


Incorrect shorts.

Which is also why Deftones are nu-metal.

I thought nu-metal had to have rapping in it to be nu-metal.

scooped mids and no solos.

Slipknot has rapping

So does Band Aid 20: Do They Know It’s Christmas.

I like them and i agree.

They started off in that category, then diverted off. The band themselves claim they were “never nu-metal” but the S/T album was a major part of the wave.

We are going to need a list for each category so we can agree with, or jeer, you.

it doesnt get much more nu metal than Chino rapping in baggy shorts in a school of teenagers with chains round their shorts


“A pair of baggy Chinos we’d say”…as it was the style at the time.


The band themselves dont get to say whether theyre nu metal or not (especially when they obviously are)

Marilyn Manson bordered on it sometimes, he’s a grey area (but overall really grunge with costumes)

Okay i should have put deftones as slipknot. I’m a disgrace that has ruined this thread for everybody. I have to live with the guilt

It’s going to be hard from now on. Waking up knowing that I should have put fuckib slipknot , deftones and other bands I’ve never actually heard a song by.

My self disgust is going to be hard to live down. I will take to heavy drinking to try to relieve the pain. Maybe in the future… someday… i can accept that it was a simple error anyone could have done and then got in with my life. But I know it’s too late for me on here… i will always be seen as the monster I am… i hope you can forgive me…
