Nu metal (better described as mallcore) is some form of grungy wigger metal shit. It mixes grunge, rap and metal together with down tuned guitars. You can identify nu metal bands with these wiggers or hip hop fags trying to play metal or grunge, or metal faggots trying to play rap (It's confusing, but you and I would take this over a certain canadian fuckhead anyday).

Popular Nu metal bands
- Korn - The pioneers of this shitty genre. The band are known for a vocalist who always whines about how the kids at school were mean and how he was molested by his babysitter, two guitarists who just play riffs full of random notes and sometimes make guitar noises you'd hear in a Cypress Hill/Ice Cube/etc. song, a bassist who tries (and fails miserably) at being Les Claypool, and a drummer who has a last name that looks like it's pronounced "loser". The original drummer of Korn left the band and is now a worshipper of the dark lord Donald Trump.
- Slipknot - a band who make money just by wearing retarded masks and screaming in the microphone, trying to sound as angry as possible so that they can appeal to angry teens who get bullied at school.
- Faith No More - their vocalist Mike Patton condemns nu metal but appears on Sepultura's Roots album on a song with Korn's Jonathan Davis. Faith No More and Mr. Bungle (another band of Mike Patton) are responsible for nu metal's existence because they influenced nu metal.
- Linkin Park - Some sextet with a singer who just sings about how he's now able to control himself, eventually tries to write lyrics about loving the world, but initially writes lyrics to help teens who have certain issues in life or need to know how to deal with their teachers. Their singer also was a nerd in school. The lyrics and vocals and shit change once they sold out into some shitty pop rock band. Their fans consist of wiggers, jocks, preppies who like them cuz they're mainstream and also emo kids might like them.
- BREAKING NEWS: Linkin Park went full-on pop; even their fanbase bawww'd, while lead singer gets salty during press; thus members quit the band and the album was critically panned.
- Evanescence - a band with a female singer. This is a band that tries to be gothic rock/gothic metal but fails at it.
- System of a Down - A group of 4 Armenian guys notable for having the Billboard #1 album on September 11, 2001 with an album full of supposedly terrorist lyrics. Wait? THESE GUYS AREN'T NU METAL!!! ...or are they?
- Disturbed - the band with a Jewish vocalist who has mommy issues and makes monkey noises.
- Staind - The band began as a nu metal/alternative metal band writing songs about becoming an hero. Then they became the same genre as bands like Creed, Nickelback, and 3 Doors Down. The band haven't created any music in a while and their singer is a now a redneck country singer who dickrides the Jewnited States of Americunts.
- Hollywood Undead - Bunch of faggy Linkin Park ripoffs whose debut album is about a swan. Anyone up for ducks? It doesn't help that their mask wearing gimmicks are obvious Slipknot ripoffs.
- Limp Bizkit - The Poison of nu metal. They have a guitarist with ridiculously huge ass pupils and a wigger vocalist with a gay red baseball cap. They're also more wigger than Linkin Park.
- Kid Rock - A retarded juggalo and wannabe redneck. So much so, he became a whiny country singer and was set to be country senate at one point.
- Sugar Ray - Pretty much the same story as Incubus, except they made even crappier music for soccer moms once they sold out after seeing their song "Fly" both become extremely mainstream and play on the radio all the time. Mark McGrath gets extremely triggered when his band is called Sugar Gay, acting like he's capable of kicking someone's ass. Call him it all you want.
- Papa Roach - The band's singer has herpes. That's all you need to know.
- Deftones - The ones with a beaner vocalist. They eventually sold out to hipsters. They apparently got extremely butthurt over the nu-metal label that they sold out when they released their album "White Pony" dedicated to the members' pride of being bronies. All the fans can't accept they were nu metal in the 1990s.
- Godsmack - The band gets compared to Alice in Chains and Metallica. Though let's face it, the band is actually just a pissed off white boy bargain bin version of Metallica.
- Mudvayne - Started off as a Slipknot clone wearing dumbass corpse paint, before they stopped that gimmick. But continued to rip off Tool, especially with their singer being a Maynard James Keenan wannabe.

- Incubus - Fronted by the faggier nu-male version of Anthony Kiedis/Mike Patton. They also randomly have a black in the band and some retard with shaggy long hair who's probably Jewish. Like Linkin Park, they eventually sold out from a gay alternative pop band into a even gayer pop band aimed at screaming teenage girls; except lead singer wasn't an hero at the end. Speaking of...
- Static-X - A Ministry ripoff band that combines with industrial metal with nu metal. The band's vocalist Wayne Static overdosed himself years later.

- Kittie - And speaking of kittens... they began as a nu metal band of teenage mallgoth girls for mallgoths to fap to. On their second album, the band tried to become trve kvlt metal and started to sound like dollar-bin versions of either Pantera, Cannibal Corpse, Dying Fetus, and Lamb of God but with a little bit of clean singing, but failed to make it onto Metal Archives.
- Mushroomhead - They got butthurt when Slipknot would look like them.
- ill Nino - Some beaners trying to play nu-metal, nothing to see here.

- Saliva - Their song "Click Click Boom" is officially an Islamic terrorist anthem.
- Sepultura - Went from being a generic thrash metal band to selling out and being nu metal. Then Max Cavalera left the band and a nigger became the band's next vocalist.

- Soulfly - After making the nu-metal tinged Sepultura album "Roots", Max Cavalera goes full mallcore and sells out completely.

- Damageplan - The failed mallcore band started by ex-Pantera members. Ended when a butthurt Pantera fan shot the guitarist.
- Vanilla Ice - No really, he had a nu metal career... still nobody gave a fuck, and can we blame anyone for not liking his shit music?
- Puddle of Mudd - Butt rock/nu metal fusion with a nasally Kurt Cobain clone on vocals. Also this guy has been arrested countless times.
- Theory of a Deadman - Similar as above, but without a butthurt lead singer. Still means absolutely nothing because they still suck, especially as a corporate butt rock band.
- Powerman 5000 - Fronted by Rob Zombie's brother. They sound a lot like Static-X and had some popularity in the late 1990s/early 2000s. No joke, the band is surprising decent.

- HELLYEAH - A retarded redneck mallcore supergroup continuation of Mudvayne, Nothingface, Pantera, and Damageplan.
- Hatebreed - Retarded wannabe tough guy band with a butthurt lead singer/frontman that easily rages and gets pissed over little stupid shit. His vocals are typical tough guy vocals and the band were one time called a racist band by CNN. The band said they aren't racist.

- Alien Ant Farm - Some alt fags with a fugly singer who inexplicably got popular by making a nu metal Michael Jackson cover in 2001, before becoming washed up nobodies a few years later. You might wanna help their singer cross the border.
- Coal Chamber - Just some nu metal band with 3 goth guys and a goth whore and their singer is some guy with long dreadlocks and shitloads of piercings and looks like a pedo-clown. One of the members looks like a monkey and has big ass ears. Their video for Loco is just them playing in some mansion at night with some pedophile driving an ice cream truck there and going in to molest random people.
- Trapt - Technically more of a butt-rock/bro-rock band, although they get labelled as nu metal since they're angsty rich kids from California like Linkin Park.

- Cold - A local dive bar version of Staind, complete with a depressed bald singer doing whiny acoustic songs.

Their singer is now a cuckservative who posts about politics constantly on Facebook about how he loves Jewnited States of Americunts, police, and the American military. He opposes ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter. He is one of the "all lives matter" type of people, yet ironically is a "blue lives matter" person. Nonetheless, niggers don't matter anyways.
- Lostprophets - Weeaboo britfags with a pedophile vocalist who sold out and suddenly went from being nu metal wiggers to being emos.
- Machine Head - Pantera clone who sold out and went mallcore before switching back to being a Pantera clone. The singer copied Korn's Jonathan Davis by bitching about getting inappropriately touched by some mean relative in every song.

Nu metal lyrics
Nu metal is known for having very deep and insightful lyrics. Here's a few examples -
Fuck yourself, don't get it talked up
Got no qualms with taking your life
Fuck yourself, don't get it twisted
Dig yourself a formal good-bye
Kill yourself, and that's how you die
Korn's "Right Now":
Right now I can't control myself I fucking hate you
You open your mouth again I swear I'm gonna break it You open your mouth again, My God I cannot take it
Shut up, shut up, shut up I'll Fuck you up
Shut up, shut up, shut up I'll Fuck you up
Nu metal was said to be invented by some alternative wankers called Faith No More and their wigger singer Mike Patton, but actually was made by Korn. Then it went popular faster than a fag on redbull getting sodomized by a monkey in Alasska naked. Then more bands came. Now it isn't popular and everyone forgot about it. To revive nu metal, form your band and bring back the late 90s and early 2000s. Also fuck this metal genre.
Tips for starting your own nu metal band

- Have some gimmick like masks, a nigger, a wetback, or a female as one of your bandmates.
- Cite Tool, Faith No More, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pantera, Primus, and Metallica as your main influences.
- Make sure at least one member has dreadlocks.
- Write songs where you rage quit.
