That's because our downstream reality reflects an upstream case but I'm going to violate it.

If you're a person above a certain age like me, your formative years music was probably full of the worst generic poo poo on the planet that would come pouring out of the radio circa 2004

naturally I'm talking about nu-metal which is just a garbage genre of trash that pretty much almost killed the entire subset of music

listen to this trash and I'm pretty sure KORN was the originator of this rear end genre:

"nu-metal" isn't really a coherent genre and there's a lot of stuff that just gets kind of lumped into it because it was hard rock/metal being made in the late 90s

like Korn and Papa Roach and Drowning Pool etc are what typically gets defined as the genre, an attempt at fusing rap with metal, and... yeah, they're absolute loving garbage

but then you have industrial metal from that era like Static X, Spineshank, Orgy etc that just got called "nu metal" because everyone forgot NIN and Fear Factory existed, there's a bunch of kinda poo poo post-grunge like Staind and Godsmack, there's actual metal bands like Machine Head and Sepultura and Faith No More that get called nu metal because they influenced nu metal, and then you have stuff like Deftones and SOAD where it mostly just got called "nu metal" because nobody was really sure what the gently caress else to call it

and then there's a bunch of bands like Disturbed and Linkin Park and Breaking Benjamin that just kinda do slightly-heavier-than-usual radio rock and nobody, including the bands, is really sure why the hell they got lumped into nu metal

e: like, I'll give you that any one of these bands sucks, but the "genre" is spread way the gently caress out quality-wise and isn't really one genre, so unless you basically just hate all radio-friendly buttrock it's kind of silly to dunk on as a whole

I do hate on all radio-friendly buttrock for sure. I am a huge fan of Sepultura though.

Godsmack blows, Staind is straight rear end. Orgy is bad and I don't remember STatic X or Spineshank. NIN is great and Korn through Drowning Pool are terrible

seen from 2017, Korn’s Jonathan Davis seems like a pioneer who never got to reap the associated cultural capital. In the middle of the big, placid strip-mall of the late ’90s, Davis was often reduced to a caricature, ridiculed in the press for his “tantrums.” But revisiting a song like “Daddy”—a horrifyingly explicit account of molestation—is to hear someone about 20 years ahead of his time. Today, exploring messy traumas on record is accepted, even commonplace.

Davis would perform “Daddy” live in one long, escalating scream, turning himself inside out in front of stadium audiences, pounding his chest and hurling himself on the floor and entering the most primal, presocial part of trauma. He also embraced a gender fluidity that no other rap-rock act would dare get near. “I’ll kiss a dude,” he told Melody Maker in 1999.

...rough day at the orifice.

I watched a movie last night that was basically a not good version of Midsommar and one of the deputy characters looked really familiar.
Fast forward to me 20 minutes later going "Oh wait... Holy poo poo. That's Fred Durst."
It's called Population 436.

lol every single one of the bands in this post loving sucked a fat long one. Hard.

I listened to garbage music growing up in the 90's and was so disappointed in the utter trash that the early 2000's turned into musically. What an absolute wasteland in general.

The genre should be called "Trashcan" because that's the only thing they deserve to 'fall into'

I like nu-metal. FNM, Orange 9mm, Soulfly, Korn, Limp Bizkit, Deftones, Mudvayne, etc. are all good. Sure there's some crap, but overall it's good stuff. In fact, my biggest disappointment from Covid-19 is missing FNM/Korn/Helmet in September.

There is nothing worse than getting together with your friends in your thirties, getting hammered, and blasting all of the terrible music you all listened to back in the day.

Actually, that's a lie, it's fun as hell. Just push the shame down the next day and act like it never happened.
