have started listening to nu-metal again. especially korn, although i'm a fan of black dice and shit....
wah wah wah look for validation elsewhere.
and then says "oh! but i do like obscure music too!"
i'm just practising my sermon. people! like what you like! you like it, therefore to make it a guilty practise in your mind is some form of torture! "i like this band but what are my friends going to say!"
who gives a flying fuck? whether the artist is black, white, old, young, singing in a different language, composing in 1647, only alive since 1997, in magazines, in zines instead, whether the artist is good-mannered, an arsehole you'd never want to talk to in your life, it's all. just. music. something created by other people for their and your enjoyment. and really, ONLY theirs and yours.
peer pressure. to hell with it!
but it's something which affects not only music, but fashion, relationships, food and drink choices, your entire fucking life. and it's dumb. like what you like - it'll make you happy.
as long as it's not all you listen to - 100% Korn turn Jonny into a meathead!
For me, it's more of a nostalgia thing - I used to listen to Slipknot, Korn, Staind, etc, when I was at school, and when every so often I hear music from that period, it evokes a lot of great memories. So, for me, it's more about the emotions I've attached to the music, rather than the music itself, which is irredeemably awful.
But, if I hear a song of that ilk, I will probably listen to it as, as I have said earlier, it evokes many a great memory from my school days. The music is completely and utterly terrible, I'm in no doubt of that, but I enjoy revelling in the nostalgia it stirs.
You'll probably enjoy this thread - we did!
it wasn't this show but it was about the same sort of time
Y'ALL CAN SUCK MY DICK AND FUCKING LIKE IT
the I'm the Man remix from the Killer Bs album, covering Bring the Noise?
blind is so dark and got the life is fuckin groovy.
theres something to korn (well old korn) that is cool (a lot cooler than other nu-metal bands).
plus slipknot were and still are a quality band.
Deftones are genius!
It's not very good, but they still saw fit to update/remake it a few years later so it kept up with the way hiphop had progressed. It was even less good.
Their metal did used to be really terrific though.
They should never have fired John Bush - the new guy SUCKS and the songs are so fucking dull generic ozzfest side stage opening band weak metal.
Korn at the height of their powers where the kings of nu-metal and this is a thread about going back a reliving your nu-metal days and I had a few of those back during my gcses.
Best rap-metal band ever.
strike while the iron is hot
steel is strongest
so say we all
change my mind...and it leads me to a new disease
TUUUUUUNE. so many memories of me bein 11 flashing back
Dammit, I wish I was 12 again!
listen to it in you own time sure but dont go spreading the word far and wide so other people remeber it exists... hehe
even Jay-Z was busting out some of his Linkin Park stuff at Glasto
I heard Linkin Paks new one on the radio the other day too or at least I think it was them and DMX sounded like it anyway.
sounded like U2
but look at Projekt Revolution, Linkin Park headlining Milton Keynes Bowl this year!
I have even seen them many many years ago. I have also seen Limp Bizkit and Stained who had Puddle of Mud suporting man that was a lame show I'm so glad I was stoned for that.
I dont think I could handel a nu-metal revival of people taking it to a new level. I might even prefer Nu-Rave to that... maybe......
I dont know
i shall lead it. dont hate me
you are forgiven.
POEM TO MYSELF
it helps me to liiiiiiive
Well, if DiS is backing nu-metal, surely the revival isn't too far around the corner. Now I'll have to dig out my red NY Yankees cap and baggy jeans with chains hanging from them. Ahhhhh, to be 12 again.......
but also kinda not.
My housemate and I went to a rave on saturday...but got bored and came home and blasted out lots of Nu-metal whilst pretty high on MD.
I'm gonna add my Korn and Slipknot albums to Itunes.
also, if you feel like you've let down kerry king, james hetfield and the other gids of metal, listen to GORGOROTH! WWW.MYSPACE.COM/GORGOROTH <- true norwegian black metal
and raise you Emperor
they are truly 10/10
best black metal band ever??
