I love nu metal. There was a short period of my life where I was a little ashamed by it, but that’s long gone. There is some really good stuff in the genre that I think most people ignored because of garbage like Limp Bizkit’s “Rollin’.” There’s more to nu metal than that and if you can’t share my love of the genre as a whole, maybe you can at least find a song or two for the next time you feel the need to mosh.

    I think most of us where hating on nu metal because we are ashamed liking such cheesy music haha. One thing I always liked about nu metal is the explosive energy. Even if the riffs where a bit dull and the singing kinda cheesy, there was always this frantic, explosive, teenage in-your-face energy that I liked. Great to see some love for it!

    Of course I do miss a few bands here, but everyones path in music is different which makes talking about it so great :)

    But there also was A LOT OF CRAP. That’s undeniable.
