Up until now, I thought Methods of Mayhem was the only contribution anyone from Motley Crue had to Nu Metal.

Anyways, here's some more bullshit






The first two-even as a dumb teenager, I thought these were fucking awful. The third one I actually liked back in the day, and the fourth so unapologetically steals a riff from "Freak in a Leash" it's amusing.

I actually don't mind Guano Apes but yeah, they (like everyone else) went through an awful nu-metal phase in the early 2000s.

I can't believe I neglected to post about this earlier. Anyone remember the one album where LYNYRD SKYNYRD tried to sound more modern? It was as awful as you can expect.

I don't see how that song sounds much different than what you'd think '00 Lynyrd Skynyrd would sound like and it doesn't sound nu-metal at all.

I hate how Skynyrd has become the Official Band of the Tea Party (at least, #2 behind Nugent) in the past ten years. Especially since they were actually a fairly (albeit subtly) liberal band in their band.

Aye. I've been able to find something worthwhile in each of their releases, even the really early rap/rock stuff from before that style was popular. "Free" is a pretty damn underrated song, and Spider is a really good frontman (better than his brother at this point, anyway).

I one of the few (only?) people who likes Destroy What You Enjoy. It's more of a punk influenced album, and I really, really like it.

I remember blind buying their first album when it first came out because I had heard that Rob Zombie's brother had a band, and I really liked Zombie (and still do), and I enjoyed the album. I agree that right now Spider is putting out better stuff than Rob.

In early Summer of 1999 when I was fresh out of high school, I remember my local comic book store giving away free PM5K promo cassettes with "When Worlds Collide" on side A and a demo version of "Son of X-51" on side B.  I really enjoyed it.

Hearing Corey Taylor on Talk is Jericho made me relive some Slipknot. This is probably their best song:



And I did listen to their new album. It's pretty bad but I don't know what else I would have expected from them at this point.

There's something about Corey Taylor that rubs me the wrong way. I can't put my finger on it. Slipknot is decent enough and the first Stone Sour album was enjoyable but he bugs me for some reason.

The only Slipknot songs I can listen to now that I'm not 13 and actually listen to real metal are "(sic)," "Spit It Out," "My Plague" (but only the album version, not the poppier single), and "Psychosocial" (which ripped off a great Metallica riff and made it work just fine).


There's something about Corey Taylor that rubs me the wrong way. I can't put my finger on it. Slipknot is decent enough and the first Stone Sour album was enjoyable but he bugs me for some reason.
Because he's a pompous dickhead that had his ass verbally eviscerated by Dave Brockie and then decided to suck up to him posthumously is why I can't stand him. Shitty part is I like his voice quite a bit.

There's rumors that Acid Bath may do a few reunion shows and Corey Taylor may be fronting them because he's such a big fan and Dax Riggs was an inspiration. Fuuuuuuuuuuuuck that noise.

Remember that really dumb feud between Slipknot and Limp Bizkit? That was actually the first time I ever heard about Slipknot. Corey Taylor (in costume) was being interviewed on MTV and pretty much said "fuck Fred Durst, if I ever see you, I'll punch you out!".

Fourteen year old me couldn't believe someone in the metal world hated my beloved Fred! I thought to myself "sick costume, bro. i need to check these guys out.".

Slipknot songs I can still tolerate: 

(sic)
Wait and Bleed - first song of their's that I ever heard, so nostalgia I suppose
Spit it Out
Left Behind
Vermillion
My Plague
Before I Forget
Psychosocial

I enjoyed the hell out of "Bother" when Stone Sour became a thing in 2002.

It didn't really hit me until reading this that a post Napster internet did play a part in Nu Metal's death. Sure, it mentions file sharing and the New Wave of American Heavy Metal, but there is also the fact that the internet means wider access and the ability to find out about bands from the past decades, more recent bands like Mastodon and Gojira, and more obscure bands. Plus, unlike the 90's it's now cool to listen to bands like Judas Priest and Iron Maiden again, and (to the chagrin of some metal purists) some websites and magazines that aren't metal exclusive now pay attention to metal bands and praise them. This kind of thing was a rarity in the 90's (and before that), where critics like Robert Cristgau were openly hostile to metal and it was something of a punchline.

I touched on this a bit earlier but I think it needs repeating. What bands were marketed as nu metal despite not having anything in common with the genre at all?

I was just talking to a friend who mentioned that he went to go to see an Incubus/Deftones arena concert with his girlfriend recently. I asked him if he felt like a kid again and he said he couldn't believe nu metal was still this popular. I didn't really want to get into it with him but I never really thought those two groups were nu metal.

Deftones were definitely marketed as such when White Pony was released but that album was so far beyond anything the genre had to offer. I actually sort of feel bad for them in hindsight being lumped together with the rest of these bozos. But hey, I'm sure they made buckets of cash during this time! I never saw Incubus as nu metal either. They started out as a poor man's Faith No More (which sadly, is what Korn tried to be when they first started out) then became a poor man's Soundgarden.

System of a Down tend to get lumped as Nu Metal, but I've long thought they had more going for them musically and lyrically. That and they actually weren't afraid to experiment with their sound.

Also, on that note, was the mid 2000s metalcore surge as prominent as nu metal was? I'm not sure if this warrants its own thread but tons of bands came through the woodwork in that time frame and 80% of them dropped off the face of the earth. A lot of better, established bands also got lumped with them.

Hell no. You couldn't turn on a rock radio station between 1997 and 2002 without hearing Korn, Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park, Staind, etc. You could listen to most rock stations all day without ever hearing Unearth or Shadows Fall. The only metalcore act that really broke through with any sort of mainstream impact was Killswitch Engage.

Different genre of maligned '90s music but I was amazed (and somewhat relieved) that nobody did a mash up of the Spin Doctors' "Two Princes" and Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" a few years back.

I don't hate either of those songs (and like "Call Me Maybe") but the thought of the two of them mashed up is so maddeningly catchy that I'd probably want to scoop out my cerebellum with a grapefruit spoon if anyone ever brought it to reality.

I actually wrote about that collaboration in one of my CXF articles (cheap plug: http://culturecrossfire.com/music/rare-and-unique-music-collaborations/#.Vh_aXEuBPKg) where I also talk about Rivers Cuomo writing riifs for Crazy town and Cold and Billy Corgan co-writing a Taproot record.
