It took Henry Rollins about 30 seconds to deconstruct and explain the whole thing.

I think to some people nu metal really doesnt sound like metal at all to them, so this might be part of the reason why they despise it, because of the lyrics and the unpredictable sound of the genre.

I don't like to say anything bad about particular genres, as each has their pros and cons. That being said, I'm a fan of Nu-Metal. I have a ton of Nu-Metal albums, ranging from the popular (Korn, Slipknot, Linkin Park, Disturbed, Limp Bizkit) to the not-so-popular (No One, Spike 1000, Shuvel, Endo, Darwin's Waiting Room). The lesser known bands have the exact same sound as the mainstream bands, so that's propbably why Nu-Metal gets hated on. The music doesn't really change from band to band that drastically, with certain exceptions (System of a Down, Deftones). Nu-Metal is a genre that has a ton of bands, but all anyone needs to do is listen to a few choice songs and they've pretty much heard everything the genre is capable of.

Is there any particular reason for this? I don't really see what is so bad about bands such as Korn or Slipknot, or the like. In fact, they're some of my favorite bands.

It may not be traditional metal, but is there any particular reason people look down on it so much?
I can't speak for anyone else, but I just find a lot of nu-metal boring. Like any genre, it's not all bad. There are songs here and there that I like, but I can't think of any nu-metal albums that are great all the way through. To me that doesn't speak very well of it as a style of music.

Henry Rollins might be the most self-centered, egotistical, bull**** artist since P. T. Barnum. I don't know if theres someone I hate more than that ****ing idiot.

Yet his analysis of nu-metal is spot on.

Hes in your face and some people can't deal with it. I find him pretty engaging live both his music and spoken word shows. I've also loved every book hes ever written and Black Flag pretty much takes a dump on most punk bands in history.

I think it's due to the fact that most people who are somewhat familiar with nu metal think of bands like "Slipknot", "Korn", and "Limp Bizkit" which turns them away from the genre. I'm not saying those are bad bands, they just aren't my favorite; there are many talented nu metal bands that don't get the recognition they deserve.

On a side note, I do think the song structure in nu metal does make it seem boring to some metalheads. The lack of guitar solos could also be part of this. Even so, I still really like nu metal...alot!
