Of course not.
go write for the NME!
about the 09 phenomenomemoen of nu rave
on the new acoustic movement?
I loved old-school rap before that, but other fans of the genre, club nights and gigs were pretty hard to come by at the time.
However, I'm under no nostalgia-fuelled illusion that 99% of the music was anything other than godawful.
this years download looks like one of the most fun fesitvals ever
have a word with yourself.
THIS IS MY LAST RESORT!
SHIIIIIIIT - FAAAAAAAN
Pop-punk? Sorry, but I think that's a slightly daft article
Also: I prefer to use the term Sports Metal.
Also pt.2: Jonathan Davis' silver Adidas tracksuit still looks dead cool.
unless Joe Satriani really is the best guitarist ever
Blink 182 were riding on a massive marketing wave shirley. They weren't even the best 30 year old dudes writing songs about wanking (The Vandals)!
It's got me down,
downset at the bottom!
On the come up to say some! Down,
downset at the bottom!
NEVER WENT AWAY
Surprise surprise - they don't like a children genre.
And he knows his shit.
the first two Cold albums were actually very good...
Never play it, but y'know...it's there....
Slipknot are still better than 99% of all heavy music around at the moment (and Animal Collective).
Limp Bizkit make me cry, though.
Er, that's all.
This genre nearly killed my love for music. KROQ jumped this bandwagon (where it remains today) and I thought "modern" music all sounded like this. Naturally, I turned to drugs for comfort.
In hindsight, that probably wasn't the best move on my part. However, every single band in that article (including the "cool" ones: FNM, Korn, Primus - make my sick to my stomach. They are Satan to me.
The writer has it right: This is music for 13 year old morons. Don't even joke about a revival. (Although at least now I now there's alternatives and the heroin isn't one of them.)
so many emo girls.
later this year?
This article is godawful.
Dimissing an entire genre, indeed, an entire ERA is so misguided, it's absolutely incredible. Say what you want, but nu-metal happened, as well as pop punk, and by happening, it probably inspired a lot of the music out today that is now acceptable to like. In fact, it most definitely did. Music inspires music inspires music. And in ten years, there will be the same fucking article dismissing this era of music. It's just so fucking tiresome.
I am so, so, so sick of 'true' attitudes to music. A lot of nu-metal WAS enjoyable, and it was meant to be! Sure, there was the angst, the simple riffs, the turntables, a lot of it was shit, but it was FUN MUSIC, and it connected with the time well. It did what it needed to do, and as for having a short shelf life, all music of any popularity does!
Oh, and for whoever said this guy wrote for Metal Hammer and so he knows his shit, I have dozens of Metal Hammers with Slipknot, Limp Bizkit and others on the front. NO ONE backed nu-metal as much as Metal Hammer. They still do! Hell, they had to be forced to include a 5 page "true metal" section in the very back, and even then, it was the most mainstream death metal or black metal they could find. Metal Hammer IS nu-metal.
As a guy who grew up with this music, and who still has Marilyn Manson, Slipknot, Mudvayne records in his collection, I have no regrets and I see nothing wrong with it. I enjoyed it at the time and I still enjoy a lot of it now. Fuck this article and fuck Metal Hammer. Time keeps passing and music journalism continues to be pointless.
...was a response to psalm23's comment "id rather listen to limp bizkit than the faggot pussy gay indie shit that the writer probably listens to on his iPod, self-consciously reading the 'arts' section of the guardian on the tube, trying his best not to breathe loudly incase anybody looks aqt him".
I thought it important to highlight that the article wasn't written by the some indie-cliche like psalm23 assumed. I wasn't making any sort of point about Hammer and their historic coverage of nu-metal, or whether the very nature of a writers' employer gives them any more authority when writing a missive as part of a website's series of negatively-poised articles (as The Quietus' Black Sky Thinking pieces are, I believe). You're reading meanings into my point that I never made.
Incidentally, Metal Hammer gave Limp Bizkit's second album 9 out of 10, fact fans.
is just about correct in every regard.
members of certain bands (hi machine head, hi max) should be fucking ashamed of themselves for changing so much in those years.
Slow funky Slayer songs. Bad times
mainly cos his surname is the japanese word for 'staff' followed by 'staph'. One for the music trivia thread. Or not. My mega Slayer fan cousin hated that album so much!
its not too shabby an album. its no The Burning Red anyway.
was incredibly inventive
Why daddy? WHHHHHHHHYYYYYYY
the seed of this article was planted in the pub outside the Custard Factory with the nu-metal jukebox?
everyone was loving it in there. Joint was jumpin'
but what I will say is that it is easier to talk about the times when it is not time for a nu-metal revival than when it is time for a nu-metal revival. This is because there are so few times when it is not time for a nu-metal revival.
nu-metal had great pop songs.
