Nah, there's way more controversy over Nu Metal. Do you see controversy over Thrash Metal, Black Metal, Crossover Thrash, or Heavy Metal? No. Do you see controversy over Hair/Glam Metal, Nu Metal and Bad Metalcore bands, Yes. There's always a few sub genres with controversy, but it's not there for most.

I don't quite understand the logic behind hating a particular music genre that is inspired by creativity for a new sound and style.

A lot of the controversy comes from the simple fact that popular heavy metal bands like Black Sabbath (for example) might sale 1 or 2 million albums. Then comes along a band like Linkin Park that might sell an estimated 60 million.

Its always the music industry.
You have to feed the machine.

I'd just like to point out that I'm not choosing the lesser of two evils. Even the derivative, self-parody bands were fun, and the actual good bands could be as good as many other bands that people mindlessly hold up on pedestals. Somebody tell me how Motley Crue's first two album's, and Dr. Feelgood tbh, weren't a match for anything AC/DC ever put out. Yet if I said it in a bar full of classic rock fans I'd probably be booed all the way to the street.

If you were in a room full of classic rock musicians, they would all more than likely agree with you Batlord, concerning Motley Crue and AC/DC.

Badlands was one of my favorite heavy metal bands and album coming out of the 80s and into the 90s.

I always thought that their sound and style more resembled Led Zeppelin more so than Soundgarden ever did. Especially the single on their opening track High Wire.

Just thought to mention...

I think he was trying to tie in hardcore music to Nu metal I see it now but back in 1995-00 I just didn't see it

I was always under the impression korn was influenced by bands like


Faith no more
Helmet
Rage agansit the machine
Chilli peppers
and Hip hop

Without reading any of the comments I'll say. I don't see why it's hated other than slightly unoriginal sounding (combining genres with alternative rock with rap/electronic) and that it's a post Gen X thing? You know how the last generation always likes to knock on the new one. Maybe it's a bit selloutish too..

Personally I can see myself listening to Nu Metal just fine.

The reverse for me.
