83 The New Pornographers

Now before you all say "what the hell is this doing on here?! The new pornographers? That's so sick! " They're actually really good and their music has nothing to do with porn at all. They only got their name from a Japanese film called The Pornographers (which is NOT a porno at all. It's actually a dark comic, satire, depicting the underbelly of the Japanese post-war economic miracle, in this case pornographers and small-time gangsters in Osaka.

They're probably my favourite nu metal band. But their first 4 albums are the only awesome ones. Others are random and decent. Depending on the album. Untitled was random and unneeded, Korn iii remember who you are was okay, but had some filler. - IronSabbathPriest

Good band. But I HIGHLY recommend you check out their older stuff first. Along with a few other artists on this list. When you check their old stuff out first, the more you get to know them.

Probably their best modern song right now is Spike In My Veins. Great Song! Beyond powerful message!

These guys are the first Nu Metal band. They're basically metal but with hip hop and funk inspired beats and instrumentals.

87 Prodigy

I'm talking about the rapper. Not the British electronic music group.

The only thing I like about Prodigy is that he says that Hip Hop is not for everyone. So we shouldn't have fake white kids like Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, and Kreayshwan running around the block.
