Power chords, drop tuning
Turntables / DJ
Rapping
Baggy jeans
Red baseball caps
Dreadlocks

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.


#23

Incorrect shorts.


#24

Which is also why Deftones are nu-metal.


#25

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


#26

scooped mids and no solos.


#27

Slipknot has rapping


#28

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


#29

I like them and i agree.


#30

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.


#31

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


#32

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


#33

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


#34

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


#35

You tell that to Clown, go on, dare ya…


#36

Actually clowns are fucking scary nm

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