You're acting pretty dumb here.

Slipknot are nu-metal which is, indeed, a kind of metal. Just a particualrly annoying kind of metal. Haha.

Plus Slipknot aren't emo in the least bit.

You can't give one of the worst bands of all times a bad name.

Damn stupid thread, btw.
According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

Different people have different classifications.

In their head, slipknot is metal. To me they aren't, still a good band in my mind, but are not metal.

And in some people's heads Ozzy is metal, but to me he isn't, he is hard rock.

And to some people Opeth isn't Progressive Death Metal, they are Prog. Metal with growls. I think they are Prog. Death.

But what many people can agree on is that not only is this the wrong forum, it has been brought up a million times, beaten to death, then raped by monkeys.

Metal has as much in common with nu-Metal as MC Hammer has with 50 Cent.

Aside from Fitty having more street cred, they're REALLY not that far removed from each other.

Subgenres in metal are useful for sorting throguh bands that sound similar. Under the giant umbrella of "metal" there are many, many, MANY completely different sounds, and it's easier to discuss bands that play "fast, dark metal with growled vocals and intense drumming and a tendency toward scales not traditionally used in popular music" as "death metal", etc.

Really, you don't HAVE to classify bands on a personal level, but it really helps to have subgenres when determining what bands you're interested in.

I think subgenreing is stupid, if no one can agree with what sub genre they should just stick to the main genre..

counter arguement slipknot may be labeled numetal but that is bull**** because they are not numetal they are like a new generation of hardcore, when slipknot came out they didnt sound like anyone else. Numetal's "riffs" are not as well put together. Slipknots "riffs" are metal, but people just say they suck because theve juust heard things like wait and bleed, that song is mostly vocals, other songs like surfacing has more drums and guitar more than vocals, but most people dont listen to songs like that cuz they are not there best selling songs. metal has powerchord progressions with blues influences. Slipknot deffinetly has that. About the emo thing, no, back to wait and bleed. The may have a song about blood, ummmmmm...... Cannibal corpse, Listen to there lyrics or just look at the name of some of there songs. are you going to called this death metal band emo because they have a song call I Cum Blood. no. I dont think slipknot are in any of the big genres of metal (black/thrash/death/power) they are just metal. Any slipknot fan that you or anyone would talk to would say that they are not emo, or anyone who knows what they are talking about when it comes to metal.

Stone Sour have been around as long as/longer than Slipknot, and only have Corey Taylor and Jim Root from Slipknot in them. I'm pretty sure they formed SS before they joined Slipknot, because the two of them aren't original members of the 'knot.

Black sabbath started metal with iron man. first metal band, EVER. ozzy was singer. you really cant argue that fact.


Iron Man was on Sabbath's second album you moron. They "started" metal with the song Black Sabbath.
