Well iv been into the nu metal scene since the start, and ive been into every underground scene also. but after 15 years of metal my fave bands are still korn and machine head, why do people hate this stuff? is it just pure snobbery? i can play a silly dragonforce solo, just overdub and overdub, i can play a metallica solo, so whats the difference, cheers gaz

Nearly 25 years old and still doesn't get grammar, punctuation, sentence structure and spelling.

I can see why you're a fan of Korn, Metllica, Machine Head and the like.

I'm 22 and I still enjoy nu metal from time to time. But I find most of the stuff too boring now. That came when I was getting more into other music gernes (not metal). I noticed too that everyone hates nu metal now. I think some former fans went on to indie and some to other forms of metal that are more b00tal (lol). I know a few kids (16-17 y.o.) that really dig papa roach, (old) linking park and limp bizkit though...
#11
I still listen to the Deftones and System of a Down on occasion. Probably because they actually tried something different and didn't play up the machismo bullshit. Could be because they didn't rely exclusively on 2 note riffs on 7-strings.

At last a decent answer, but you obviously don't find nu metal to be a bad sound? alot of nu metal that I've listened to sucks, but then the older korn deftones helmet sound was awesome. cheers gaz

most the lyrics in a lot of nu metal bands are meaningless angst and anger. i think, at least for me, the lyrics dont do it for me, its just a bunch of angry (mostly) white dudes who are pissed off but are very good at expressing it in song form. Also a lot of the guys in those bands suck at their instruments, looking at this from a purely technical stand. Papa roach, linkin park, etc. have shitty musicians in their bands (not always, but admit it, kind of a lot) it seems to me like a new genre of music has moved into the nu metal genre that i heard called UFC-core. this sums up a lot of the tapout-wearing douches who listen to hollywood undead and think they can fight because they are either just douches or they have a lot of anger they cant express in another way. thats what i got for ya. take it as it is, an opinion

It's not snobbery to expect a person to learn to express themselves like a coherent, mature person.

I think you've got a point. Not very talented musicians plus "teenage-y" lyrics. :S Still like Deftones because they were not too much into the what you've called angst and anger lyrics.

Exactly, you've barely explored Metal by the sounds of it. Head over to the rec thread first page and go through ALL OF IT, and you may answer your own questions.

Your question is laced with ignorance, is what I'm getting at.

Iv been through metal over and over again, i cant help if i still prefer what i prefer.. no offence to you or anyone else, this wasnt meant to be an offensive topic. i have listened to everything metal for the last 15 years weather it be napalm death or 3 doors down, i am just stating an opinion. i dont care how offensive these people are. cheers gaz

Be a civilized human being and using proper grammar. ho I sposed 2 undstnd u wn I cnt enve raed wat u r sayn?!!!???? lolz. If you can't even type properly and respectfully like 25 year old should, you wouldn't have people not taking you serious and calling you stupid. I'm thirteen and I type better than you. If you consider typing properly "typical snobbery," than you have a very severe misunderstanding of snobbery. This is a forum. Not some kind of Internet Chatroom with all of your friends who wear their flat-brim hats and have shorts down below their ankles. Type right or get out.


On topic:
People don't like Nu-metal because music is subjective. I hate most rap and things of the sort. So I tend to stray away from Limp Bizkit, and others. The guitars are too simple for my taste and I tend to dislike the singing. Machine Head's Old is a song that I like, and I do like some Slipknot, but generally, I dislike Nu-metal. I prefer Tech-death, Jazz, Classical, 80's metal, Techno, and more.
