    Well, only one of your posts has been in a metal related forum and that wasn't even talking about a metal band (Toto). I was just wondering how someone who listens to metal has no clue what nu-metal is.

    Oh yes great, so glad this totally rocking thread has been handballed over here. I wonder what would happen if I threw it back. With some poo on it.

    The stuff you listen to is called lame gangsta hip-hop, if someone told you it was called metal I'm here to set you straight.

    this thread is a deadly fail-bomb into the heart of the non-metal forum

    I am glad that we have a nu-metal thread in the non metal section, though, it's sort of a statement.

    What I don't get is the usage of the term "nu-metal." I know where it came from and why it was used initially...but it's an ignorant term so why do people still use it? It's not metal, and nu-metal itself isn't a real genre.

    Like, why call a band like Godsmack nu-metal when you can call them hard rock?

    People still use it because it became widely accepted. Whether it is ignorant or not is redundant. It is used to describe bands with a certain sound, a sound that has strong elements of metal in it. I think nu-metal is a much more apt term to use for bands like Korn etc than hard rock.

    This is just a funny statement. You should listen to some real death and speed metal bands before you say that.

    off subject but this rapper I currently listen K-Rino isnt considered "lame gangsta hip-hop" at all, he basically the total opposite!! So if you dig the substantial lyrical stuff I highly recommend you check him out (see hippity-hop thread), if not youre sooo missing out man......

    I don't hate nu-metal. I just don't care about it. I had never even heard much of it until I was like 18 years old anyway, so I was way past the age where it might have possibly seemed appealing.

    I smell a troll.




    Anyways, I don't mind some nu-metal, like Slipknot and Mudvayne. I hear it because my roomamte likes nu-metal (along with many other different kinds of music).

    Easy for me, this genre has no quality,poor songwriting and musicianship, and I don't know, except it's just too derivative. Nothing really new or original.
