Like I said, about half of those bands were important... I personally like both Taproot and Hed Pe (Broke)

What about Korn, System of A Down, Linkin Park, Incubus, RATM, Deftones.... were none of those bands important?

RATM, SOAD, Incubus and Deftones to an extent were important to the generation, but may or may not have a huge long term legacy. Korn and Linkin Park were just popular, and played a style of music that got stale quickly and wasn't very strong to begin with.

I pretty much agree with you... I feel like Korn and Linkin Park had some impact on the future of music... Linkin Park brought hip hop to a crowd that wouldn't normally listen to hip hop, and brought rock to the hip hop crowd...

RATM is one of the most important bands of the last 20 years in my opinion.

Those bands were very successful, but what did they actually add to culture/music? There is no innovation, no originality... just commercial success. The genre died out like an ugly fad and we are all better for it.

It's hard to deny RATM's importance/influence, anyone doing so needs their head checked, but when the hell did they become nu metal? lol

but they all have the production value of all the bands you listen to without even having to try!

Hahahahahaha

One of the best things I've read on this site.

Thread followed a typical General Forum thread arc. But I'm with you there.

Nu-metal being bad isn't exactly the most unique talking point ever either.
