Forward To Death - KoRn, Limp Bizkit, Deftones, Linkin Park, Saliva, Papa Roach, Disturbed.

Each of these bands has a completely unique and recognizable sound. Admittedly, I don't know much about guitars but I know for sure that those bands guitars don't sound the same. Deftones's Adrenaline f.e. is one of my favorite albums and it has an unique guitar sound that has never been used outside that album. Name me ONE song outside Adrenaline in which the guitar sounds like that.
Yeah I realize I'm generalizing/stereotyping but that's the vibe I get from nu metal. Also just watch a Korn video clip, says it all really.

It's not about the presence of rapping, it's that so much of the rapping in nu metal is no better than ICP's rapping.

What on earth are you talking about? This isn't 1990. There is plenty of crossover these days.

Low IQ? Neanderthal behavior and thinking? You mean like people who make ignorant, sweeping generalizations about entire groups of people?

And tell the Vikings that long hair is feminine.

The Batlord AHAHAHHAHAHAHAH Vikings? You mean the low IQ'd, savage, dirty, thieving neanderthal women rapers ? Boohoo I'm so scared .

Well most casual people associate metal with leather, satan, darkness, skeletons and that kind of stuff which is annoying and offending. When people ask me what I listen to and I say metal I mostly get negative reactions, but not negative as "OMG YOU'RE STUPID AND YOU STINK" but negative in the way that they look at me as a freak but are too polite to say anything.

More ignorant, sweeping generalizations? You know, if Vikings were black then this would be about to turn into an entirely different conversation.

Well, most "casual people" are idiots, so why should I care what they think? Besides, Satan kicks ass. Backwards baseball caps do not.

Skeletons are annoying? Really? I've always found mine to be pretty supportive.

I generalized, so what? Those are the characteristics vikings are known for. Doesn't have to mean that each and every one of them was like that, but MOST were.

Most people I know don't know music further than mainstream pop and our folk music but so what? The smartest girl in our class has an IQ of 142 by European standards. Is she an idiot just because she listens to mainstream pop?

Whiskey - I find these KoRn songs pretty catchy: "Falling away from me", "Let the guilt go", "Right now", "Predictable", "Shoots and Ladders". I can list more if you want me to.

Post after post of absolute guff! One thing's for certain, your IQ is a long way below 142.

Hopefully this thread won't reach 142 posts either.

You mean to say is that you aren't having fun?

How dare you make me laugh so loud that I fell to the floor and broke my skeleton! MyName is right, skeletons are offensive, the way they let you break your back. We need a "smile" that includes an old man with a walker, 'cause, dude, that's the way I feel now...

The resulting music is usually a lot more proud of itself than it really deserves to be (lower technical skill than a lot of other metal genres, less lyrical depth and compositional profundity, etc. etc.) and unfortunately, due perhaps to the strong backlash against its founders, or perhaps to the transience of its demographic target, there's been very little exploration of it in the underground by more talented rappers and metal musicians.
This.

Any response after this post is basically just meaningless fluff.
