Hush, children, this is my "Ask Me" thread. Ask me anything but DO NOT SPAM EVER. THIS INCLUDES MAKING A TON OF QUESTIONS.

In your opinion, what rock/metal bands do you think are highly underrated? - visitor

Jesus Christ, whoever did this must have a hell of a lot of questions for a visitor. I'm not sure if I needed to feed it.

Adema, Nonpoint, Sevendust, Dry Kill Logic, Flaw, 40 Below Summer, Scars of Life, Stereomud

Not Nu-metal but underrated:
Fuel, Vision of Disorder, Volumes, Sybreed, Scar Symmetry, Prong, TRUSTCompany, 10 Years, Tantric, Evans Blue (better with Matisyn on vocals) - NuMetalManiak

It's obviously the same moron who's been commenting on other people's Q&A's (especially Turkey's). Thank god he left though. - visitor

Why do people hate nu metal so much? - visitor

Because that's their opinion. But mainly no guitar solos, lurid face paint, rapping in metal, those are the main ones. - NuMetalManiak

I always thought people hated it because (I don't know if this is true or not) it's not heavy enough. - visitor

What is your definition of a sellout? - visitor

An artist that is pretty well-liked by fans that releases something that is totally different than what fans are expecting. Other fans might enjoy it but the fans who have been with that artist would hate it so much. - NuMetalManiak

In your opinion, who do you think is the biggest sellout (musician, filmmaker, etc)? - visitor

There are plenty of artists that can be branded sellouts after releasing one album that is different from the rest. Linkin Park and Metallica are two of the more obvious ones. One I definitely know is a sellout in my eyes is Finger Eleven with their album Them vs. You vs. Me and especially the song Paralyzer.

Please don't spam questions at me all the time by the way. - NuMetalManiak

What are your opinions on Black Metal? - IronSabbathPriest

Not the killings, just the music in general. - IronSabbathPriest

I, avoid it. I'm not really a fan of the genre, and I'm not sure if it is a darker version of death metal or something. The shrieking screaming vocals are a put off. I don't take religion into account when listening to music, but I think that the Satanist views on black metal are an extreme. - NuMetalManiak

I honestly hate the black metal bands who kill and worship Satan. They, themselves, do not know what's wrong with them. - visitor

Do you have a favorite concept album? - visitor

Only one I know of is NIИ's Downward Spiral.

Are you wondering how I got that backwards N? И - NuMetalManiak

What do people love and hate about Limp Bizkit? - visitor

The fans like the rap and quick pace of their music. The haters hate the rap, as well as the fact that Fred is a douche. Me, I'm personally not a Bizkit fan, but I do enjoy the song Break Stuff. - NuMetalManiak

Would you rather lose your family or lose your friends? - Turkeyasylum


Oh, wait, I don't have friends in real life. - NuMetalManiak

What faith are you? - visitor

Catholic Christian - NuMetalManiak

Another catholic! - visitor

Religion does lead to crappy arguments online though - NuMetalManiak

What is is that people hate about Linkin Park so much? I'm not a huge fan of the band myself but I constantly hear a lot of good and bad talk about them. People either love them or hate them but I wanna know why they get so hated. - visitor

People like them because to them they make good music. Or for the "hardcore fans", only their first few albums were good music. People hate them because of many things, them being nu-metal, them having a rapper, because they are so popular, because their fans never shut up about them, or, according to the fans, they totally sold out with the A Thousand Suns album. I'm personally neutral about this band. - NuMetalManiak

I don't see what's so bad about them having a rapper. As long as he's not talking about sex, drugs, and weed then they're ok. - visitor

I agree! - NuMetalManiak

What is it that you like about nu metal? - visitor

It's just music that appeals to me, that's all. - NuMetalManiak

Why do they call it "nu metal" anyway? - visitor

I have no idea - NuMetalManiak

In all honesty, do you think it's important that people should only ask 1 or 4 questions instead of a lot of questions? - visitor

Yes. Oh god yes. - NuMetalManiak

From what we know is that it's a reminder that people should only ask a few questions and not a lot. - visitor

What is your opinion on the band Creed? - visitor

I like them. Except for Scott Stapp, he sucks. - NuMetalManiak

Oh, and Tremonti is WAY better. - NuMetalManiak

I don't know if you're into grunge or not but I have a quick question. What is it that makes post-grunge different from traditional grunge? They say post-grunge is more radio friendly. Was traditional grunge too much for the mainstream radio back then? - visitor

Post-grunge got famous after Kurt Cobain died. That's kind of how I look at it. Actual grunge for me is usually before 1994, which was that year he died. Yeah, PG is a bit more radio friendly, but the more popular bands get it more. Traditional grunge was either too punk (like old Mudhoney) or too metal (like old Soundgarden). Also, it was budding at the time hair bands were still totally popular, until Smells Like Teen Spirit wrecked their reputation and brought grunge to mainstream. That's probably why it's such a great song. - NuMetalManiak

When you say that Mudhoney and Soundgarden we're both too punk and too metal, did you mean that their lyrics were very transgressive? - visitor

Uh no. I meant that how their music sounds is similar to other punk or other metal. Like Touch Me, I'm Sick has a very punkish sound, similar to punk bands from before, while Soundgarden's stuff from Badmotorfinger has a very heavy metal-like hook to it (like Jesus Christ Pose E.G.) - NuMetalManiak

In all seriousness, do you think this site is not worth being on? Most of the time I see rude people on here or users being asss to each other. That really makes me wanna leave this damn site. - visitor

I really have not been doing a lot on this site so I don't know. - NuMetalManiak

Do you like Twisted Sister? - bobbythebrony

Who? - NuMetalManiak

You've never heard them? Have you heard I Wanna Rock? - bobbythebrony

Hmm, that's the song on Will Rock's menu screen. Yes I've heard of that but not the band in question. - NuMetalManiak

OK - bobbythebrony

Call me crazy, but were you a transgender at one point? - visitor

No I have a tripolar disorder where one persona is female. - NuMetalManiak

I never knew that about you. So like at certain points a female persona takes over? - visitor

No I choose - NuMetalManiak

Could you stop if you wanted to? - visitor

Yes - NuMetalManiak

And besides, almost every hippie liberal who makes transgenderism a political thing has forced me to quit anyways. - NuMetalManiak

They makes a big deal over everything possible. - visitor

Hippies are cool - IronSabbathPriest

Everyone bump this - NuMetalManiak

Please? - NuMetalManiak
