I'd consider Slipknot to be the most horrible nu-metal band. There's absolutely no originality to their sound. They just scream with rage and masks with rage lyrics. and I don't see how the drummer is constantly praised as "great". He just does hard drumming that is all heard before. Nu- Metal is the most embarrassing genre of metal.

I haven't even listened to half of those bands, but Slipknot is as bad or worse than all of the ones you mentioned that I have listened to before. There's nothing appealing there, if I want to listen to Fear Factory/Sepultura, I'll listen to those bands who were doing exactly the type of thing Slipknot's done, but for longer and to a better quality result.

Same with Disturbed, Godsmack, Korn, Limp Bizkit, etc.

Why? Because you personally dislike those bands more than Slipknot?

I gave my opinion and reasons for it and really that is all you need.

Also, I have to disagree with the "additional" members of the band and their contributions to the music. I think Slipknot could trim down by two or three members and lose very little bar bloated, threatrical elements to a stage show. And for me personally, I'd probably like them a lot more if they did that and cut the theatrics and the costumes out completely. I'd be able to take them more seriously.

But hey, thats just me. Each to their own.

Reading this thread, I can't help but notice that nobody mentioned this.



It sounds like Beyonce and Jennifer Lopez decided to switch to metal.

Also this:



This woman has the most irritating voice I have ever heard.

Or THIS:



It sounds like somebody's butchering a cow with a chainsaw. With many chainsaws.

I can hear everything you can, you just happen to have an appreciation for nu metal, and I definitely do not.
the "Subliminal Verses" is some of the best nu-metal **** I've ever heard

and yes, I love nu-metal

I'd also like to say that Dragonforce is the most pathetic bands I've listened to, nu metal/industrial metal acts included.

You haven't been exposed to much nu metal then. Not a bad thing I guess, but to make a point:





The fact that there are popular nu metal acts like this floating around out there (and it only goes downhill from here) is the reason I have a difficult time understanding that Slipknot could be the absolute worst. I think most people hate them because they hate nu metal (understandable), and they are the best and most popular nu metal group.

I tried to post bands that covered a variety of genres. The ones I picked were the worst in their respective genres.

This is terrible:
