Metal 101- The Nu-Metal kid by LusoSkav Metal 101- The Nu-Metal kid by LusoSkav
I was very much like this once.


---------------------------------------------------------------
After a few years as a metalhead, and many, many metal shows attended, i couldn't help but to notice the diferent archetypes and demographics in the metalhead culture that i kept coming across.
And since i never saw any kind of descriptive charts that accurately portrayed the metal subculture i so dearly know and love, i decided to do it myself!

So, based on people that i know, people that i merely saw, often or not that often, and on blunt personal experience, i began thinking up of a few, and will sure remember a few more as i go along.

Also remember this is not meant to offend. It's all harmless satire, more often than not

So yes. Hope you enjoy Luso's Handy Guide to Metalheads

I like nu metal alot, and dress in baggy clothes (excluding tripp pants, not incredibly baggy). KoRn and Disturbed are the best, whereas Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit suck. Honestly I hate all these metal purists that aren't open to new ideas when it comes to metal as a genre. KoRn created it, Disturbed got the right idea of what nu metal truly is, and then of course a few poser bands come in and almost ruin the genre. But back on the art itself, nice job. I seriously mean that. :)

Also I hope I'm not coming off as offended or offensive.

Never really was this kid, but I've got the baggy clothes thing going on (though they're mostly throwback sports jerseys, but I kinda mix metal with punk, hip-hop, new wave, ska - basically, I don't judge music by popularity, but quality). As for nu-metal itself, Nonpoint is a very good band in the genre that really never get that much attention.

I was sort of like this. I loved [and still love, but can't afford] Tripps and went WAY overboard with necklaces and bracelets. However, I don't remember if I ever thought Korn, Disturbed, Slipknot, etc were metal; I can't recall ever thinking that about them. I remember way way back in the day, before I had gotten into them, I heard a little bit of CoF [I remember theee album with Of Dark Blood and Fucking on it, also found that song title lulzy] thanks to my sis and thought that shit was too much for me/I'd never be that 'hardcore' lool. xDa  But yeah, I was definitely in the mallgoth/numetaller crowd in jr high and high school XDa Had a friend who burned me a CD with a bunch of good stuff on it which was my gateway into indisputable metal. xDa

Oh man, all these stereotypes are killing me xD nice humor you got there. Can you do me a favor? Im quite missing a Grindcore guy. You can describe the grind guy very good via prejustices like "everything else slower than Napalm Death is Doom Metal" or something like that :)

I still listen to a ton of Nu-Metal, but I was never this dorky. Then again I also was in marching band.

I think the only Nu-Metal bands I enjoy are Korn and Linkin Park, and even then, I've lost much interest in either band's latest works (Korn did that thing with Skrillex and Linkin Park sounds lamer than ever). Slipknot is ok, but they can't compare to Exodus, Slayer, Testament, and Metal Church.

I agree with some of the stereotypes, but uh whatever.

I still really like quite a selection of Nu Metal.

I do agree that a large percentage of them never listen to anything more, similar to "mainstream Metal" fans.
