cultural origins: mid-1990s, California, U.S.

Nu metal is also known as nü-metal and aggro-metal. It is a subgenre of alternative metal. MTV states that the early nu-metal group Korn “arrived in 1993 into the burgeoning alternative metal scene, which would morph into nü-metal the way college rock became alternative rock.”[^1]

Nu metal bands have been influenced by and have used elements of a variety of musical genres, including electronic music, funk, gothic rock, hardcore punk, punk rock, dance music, new wave, jazz, post-punk, symphonic rock, and synth-pop. Nu metal bands also are influenced by and use elements of genres of heavy metal music such as death metal, rap metal, groove metal, funk metal, and thrash metal. Some nu metal bands, such as Static-X and Dope, made nu metal music with elements of industrial metal. In contrast with other heavy metal subgenres, nu metal tends to use the same structure of verses, choruses, and bridges as those in pop music.[^2]

Is often bashed and heavily criticized by “true metal fans” for being “mainstream”, or for having Nu metal the obnoxious force field blocking people from discovering good metal.
At first, it was quite a good genre, but now that it is popular, and therefore ‘Mainstream’, people have this idea that it is a brainwasher.
