This needs to be one
Clearly the most innovative and and creative band on here. Korn isn't quite as good as RATM in my opinion but they're different, they were influenced by RATM but they still did the music they wanted and pretty much created the Nu-metal genre. Far better than Linkin Park, their sound is nothing like RATM, RATM had an alternative and innovative sound, Linkin Park just wrote one song and copied it for every other song, not to mention they have a horribly mainstream sound. Korn mops the floor with LP.
Evanescence is an American rock band founded in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1995 by singer/pianist Amy Lee and guitarist Ben Moody.
Listen to Fallen. Best nu metal band. Thank you RATM and Korn. My favorite band with Linkin Park and Slipknot. But Evanescence is better.
Amy is the best female singer.
