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 think we all go through the Nu-Metal phase...it was a confusing and awkward time that I'm not really proud of.

How… I really think that Static-X is Industrial!
Because I'm fan of Nu, Industrial and Alternative Metal!

"Over Abundance of Accessories". That was completely me in high-school..."Tripp" pants and always using the term "preppy" to describe normies. Ah, nostalgia.

Please no.
Even though I'm born in 2000, there's less that 5% that I would be this kid. 
I listen to all sorts of thrash, death, speed, occasionally black, power, NWOBHM, Groove, Glam, and that's it.

I like nu metal (Slipknot, Linkin Park, Static-X, Disturbed, A7X) but I wouldn't say that Slipknot is the craziest, heaviest band. I also wouldn't say that Joey is the best drummer ever either.

The funny thing about me is that the only nu metal band which I still listen to is Slipknot. You know, I love this band the most of the rest bands I listen to. I'm their fan for 3 years. I usually listen to thrash, death, heavy, folk metal bands. I don't like nu metal anymore, but Slipknot is exception. Slipknot is unique for me. 
But people who says Joey is the best drummer or Slipknot is the heaviest, are really ridiculous for me. It doesn't matter if band is the heaviest, the most important is that you like the band.
Funny is that I've never listen to Static-X and Mudvayne.
About my clothes.
I've never liked baggy clothes.

I listen mostly to Groove and Nü Metal or combinations of them, like baggy clothes, and consider myself pretty much a Nü Metal Head..... I´m tired of arguing with more classic metalheads abuot styles, heaviness or whatever bullshit people came out with.... I guess, everyone has the right to listen to whatyever style or band they like.... It´s fully enough with shitty "music" around to be arguing between 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. :)

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 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.

I notice most people see Nu Metal as the stepping stone to "true" Metal music. I actually started with Metalcore and Thrash Metal and then 4 years into it, then discovered Nu Metal with Korn. Also even though a large portion of Nu Metal doesn't sound like Metal (i.e. Deftones, Linkin Park, etc, etc.) I do think there is some Nu Metal that is just as Metal as anything else. Like to me, Korn, some Slipknot, some Disturbed, and a couple other bands are Metal. But just my opinion.

I'm a fan of a band that makes nu metal music. However, I don't look, dress, or act like this. I guess I don't count as a metalhead then? :P rvmp
