The Top Ten

1 Blind - Korn Blind - Korn

One of the most iconic songs from the band and in Nu Metal general. A song to help push the entire Nu Metal movement to new heights. - cjWriter1997

My favorite korn song - EliHbk

2 Break Stuff - Limp Bizkit Break Stuff - Limp Bizkit

Important too, being the song that allegedly caused the incidents of Woodstock 99 - EliHbk

I honestly think this should be number one. - JCHOW

It's angsty, full of attitude and kicks it with that anthemic sound perfect for it's genre. - cjWriter1997

I really hate this songs lyrics. It sounds alright but the lyrics are really cringy

3 My Own Summer (Shove It) - Deftones My Own Summer (Shove It) - Deftones

Bored and Be Quiet and Drive were close picks but I picked the most iconic out of all 3. My Own Summer is a classic, remaining as one of the greatest anthems to Nu Metal. - cjWriter1997

4 Chop Suey! - System of a Down

One of the most popular songs of the 2000s, it's no wonder it fits the Nu Metal anthem criteria so well. - cjWriter1997

Tis a very good song but I prefer B.Y.O.B

5 Mudshovel - Staind

Perhaps the best bassline in Nu Metal? Mudshovel was a big hit for the band and Nu Metal. - cjWriter1997

6 Wait and Bleed - Slipknot

There were a few choices I could've picked for this band but I think Wait and Bleed was probably the best one. It's iconic to Nu Metal and one of the band's greatest. - cjWriter1997

This and spit it out are pretty sick - EliHbk

7 Numb - Linkin Park

There were a lot of choices I could pick from this band, I went with one of their most well known. Numb has the anthemic feel that fits perfectly for the genre of Nu Metal. - cjWriter1997

8 Loco - Coal Chamber

1997 was the release of two of the most influential Nu Metal albums of all-time, Around the Fur and Coal Chamber's debut. Loco is no doubt the best contender for a Nu Metal anthem by the band. - cjWriter1997

9 Bawitdaba - Kid Rock

This song is NOT Nu Metal.

10 Raise Hell - Hed PE

The Contenders

11 Push It - Static-X

Another classic from a pretty solid Nu Metal band. If you were around for MTV 1999, this song was everywhere. Easily an anthem for Nu Metal. - cjWriter1997

12 In the End - Linkin Park
13 Jumpdaf***up - Soulfly

This song is sure to get you pumped. Another Nu Metal classic worthy of being an anthem for the genre. - cjWriter1997
