I was wondering if anyone out there had theories as to why metal/metalcore/nu metal has become the most popular form of rock in the past 7 or 8 years.\

any thoughts?

You must be blind to think that more people listen to metal/metalcore/nu metal than rap.

SO if Janne and Alexi did a gay porn, would I be the only one willing to buy it?

That's a dumb question, you know everyone in here would buy it too. I know I would!

Damn, I must be blind to have misread that, I thought he said music, not rock. xD

i dont know... back in the 90s everybody was trying to innovate and then some dudes came up with mixing rap and rock (nu metal)... maybe it brought together fans of rock and rap into a new genre that everybody from the rap kids to the metal kids would like....

with metalcore... well i really dont know xD i just cant get enough metalcore for some reason (even though many people hate it) xD

IMO people who listen nu-metal just do so coz they wanna feel badass listening to metal but they cant handle being screamed/growled at or decent guitar work (The only exceptions would probably be slipknot, if theyre still consider nu-metal, and rage because tom morello can riff like a mad man)

Metalcore/nu metal is pretty poppy and mainstream, and same for most of the popular metal bands.
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.
