Top 10 Most Overrated Nu Metal BandsNu Metal regardless think if it's "poser metal" or even metal at all. There's no denying that some bands of the genre get more attention than others. Not calling any of these bands terrible but they are somewhat overrated. And to assure you overrated and bad do not MEAN the same thing. So please don't get pissy at me if your favorite band is on this list. I'm excluding Post- Grunge, Rap Rock, and regular Grunge bands for this list. Even if they only made or two nu metal albums they still count.
The Top Ten
Don't get me wrong Hybrid Theory and Meteora were awesome albums but they aren't the most influential band of the genre and don't deserve to be at number one on the best "Nu Metal bands" list. I think that Korn is more worthy of that spot. They had a influence on it but get more credit than needed.
I could've sworn this list was already made - Nonpointed
I checked and there's only been a worse and best Nu Metal bands list before this. So NO it wasn't already made. Don't accuse me of plagiarism when you don't have proof.
You obviously do not know what overrated means. Overrated means something has a ton of attention and praise but do not deserve it. The top 4 bands on here do deserve their praise because they’re great bands in my opinion. Just because something is popular and has a lot of attention, doesn’t make them overrated!
I do like Slipknot but they do get a lot of attention... that's undeniable.
Excellent band but they do get lots of praise and attention.
Lots of praise and attention =/= overrated
Lots of praise and attention does make something overrated how retarded are you?
Their first album counts as Nu Metal so I guess they count.
A pretty decent band but slightly overrated.
Influential for the genre but kind of overrated at the same time.
So overrated it hurts...
Only for their first album which was Nu Metal everything else obviously isn't Nu Metal.
They're incredibly mediocre and aren't that great in my opinion.
At least worthy of one spot on this list.
I'd argue that they're overhated if anything...
