nu-metal that doesn't suck?
that's like saying metal that's happy.
or rap that doesn't talk about pimps and hoes.
or country that doesn't whine.
or....nevermind

The Wikipedia page was a very good read, but the second editorial was more an opinionated, subjective view to the matter. I do highly recommend the Wikipedia definition.

Kokaiinum: But now they get played on MTv, and when former metal bands gets aired on Mtv, you know they have sold out and its time to stop listening to them, disgrace to the metal scene.

O yea, damn them...Even tho the goal of making music is for people to enjoy it. Let's all hope they burn in hell cuz they want to make money not only for themselves but for the families they have or will have...f***ing jackass.

reasons why metal is cool;
The solos rule
Anger is better to listen to through music than acting upon it
Degradtion of women is gay but somethings they say are true
cynical rules
Depressing music sucks

reasons why nu metal isn't;
The riffs are repeatitve
the lyrics are immature
the clothes are trendy
the act is trendy
the style is trendy
they'll be different people in 20 years
because they are trendy
masks are fruity
the repeated riffs are boring anyways
they abuse the meaning of 7 strings
they do what people tell them to do
they are owned by the label
masks are fruity
every song on the album sounds the same
they bitch about being heard and dont say what they want to be heard for

more reasons why metal is cool;
the heaviness is fun
the lyrics rule
no masks
variety in riffs,licks, scales, modes, etc in one song
even more in the album
they hold their own
the record labels support them and help them pursue what they desire
they can pinch a harmonic and make it squeeeeal
the drumming is sometimes insane
the basslines are sometimes groovey as all hell
cannibal corpse rule
drink coffee

How To Form A Nu-Metal Band In 11 Easy Steps from Metal Hammer mag:

1: Firstly, you need to be between the ages of 18 and 24, preferably breathing, and have two hands (not always necessary though).

2: Image is very, very important, so get kitted out with some baggy shorts or pants and a big wallet chain. Hair should be spiky, shaven or short -- no mullets or longhairs here!

3: A great name is pretty important, so write out a list of inanimate objects and combine any two for a band name. Where possible, no Cs or Ss -- only Ks and Zs. Here is a list and a few "examplez": Nose, chain, box, bleed, plank, boy, spider, wagon, trouzaz, shed, monkey, mutha, spanner, horse, fire, rocket, kill, kake, wallet, blast, chokolate, floppy. Now combine: Floppy Trouzaz, Wallet-Wagon, Kake-Box etc. This is good fun, so feel free to add more to the list.

4: Oh yeah, I almost forgot: Guitars are pretty important too so buy an Ibanez seven-string and downtune it until every string is as slack as a 50-year old Dutch prostitute. Then learn some easy single-note riffs and the occasional fifth-fret harmonic. Five minutes' practice should be enough before you are ready to play with the rest of the band. If you are a bass player, buy an Ibanez 5 or 6-string and do the same downtuning treatment as the guitar, but only use the top six frets. If you downtune it enough, then your bass should sound as low and farty as your granny after six helpings of cabbage, broccoli and sprouts at Christmas dinner.

5: Employ a pointless DJ and a singer who can "rap" (call him an Emcee) and claim you have always loved hip-hop as well as metal.

6: State that guitar solos are pointless, shit, self-indulging fretboard masturbation, when in fact you just can't play them and in secret you worship Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen, Joe Satriani and Jeff Beck and the rest of the shred movement.

7: Write three-minute, commercial songs about how fucked-up your nice, steady, middle-class upbringing was, with a rap verse and a shouty chorus with loads of swearing to show how "4 REAL" you are. This is the key to success -- sell out before you even sell.

8: Claim NOT to be nu-metal and invent your own stupid-ass genre, like "Garden Core" or "Wardrobe Core" or "Nicely-Trimmed Privet Hedge-Core" and tell the press you've been in a band for ten years or so. When they question this, stating that if that is true, you must've been in a band when you were eight years old, swear loudly at them and call your agent.

9: Even if you perfect the first 8, it don't mean shit unless you move to the USA and get a cheesey gimmick. Wearing Y-fronts on your head, dressing in chef's uniforms or using poo as face paint should do the trick.

10: Number 10 is the ultimate clincher -- you MUST cover an awful 80s pop song! This will be your first single, or your second one if your first single was crap *cough, cough*Alien Ant Farm*cough, cough*. Something by MC Hammer, Spandau Ballet, Frankie Goes to Hollywood or Michael Jackson should be appropriate.

11: Congratulations! If you have done all this correctly, you should now record an album ("the heaviest fuckin' thing ever") filled with 50 guest-appearances from members of other nu-metal bands. If possible, get Ross Robinson to produce it and bribe him to say "This is the craziest, heaviest shit I've ever heard! These guys are 4 REAL!". Your album should sell 5,000,000 copies and get constant radio play before you split up because you are too rich to continue and your wallet is so heavy it hurts your "pants" (trousers) and you can't tour anymore.

Hehehe that is funny.

I do think that the reason there is so much argument here is that people seem to have different definitions of nu-metal.

I like SOAD, much more their first album. They don't rap. Are they nu-metal?
Personally I find that it can be quite nice to listen to simple music now and again...

my post about metal was sarcasm metal=life, it was to point out how useless bitching about music is.
just because you don't like it, doesn't mean it's garbage.

Sooooo, what you are saying is that we shouldn't express our opinions about other kinds of music?

Beast, that was wonderful. You've brightened up an otherwise pointless & soul-rendingly lame day.

I can't believe this thread is still alive. It's like the kid at school that everyone hates who just won't give up even though you tell him to his face that he's a cunt & he smells & no one likes him. Yeah, just like that...
